    A tad morbid perhaps, but what are some of your favorite death scenes/movie deaths?

    Personally, I wont be forgetting Steven Buscemi’s demise in Fargo.

    Going out in a blaze of glory, for Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, although there is some intriguing stories in this aftermath.

    There’s Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense. Could be the longest death scene in film. And Nicole’s experience in The Others, is there with him.

    Poor Sean Bean in TLofTR’s. The guy dies so often in films….

    Buck Henry’s death in The Man Who Fell to Earth is unforgettable, right there with Martin Sheen’s in The Departed.

    Alien! Enough said.

    And some of the worst?
    Marion Cotillards’ in The Dark Knight Rises. Hilarious.

    What are some of your own favorites?

    Marion Cotillard, although one of the greatest actresses ever, her death scene in Dark Knight Rises was horrible. I blame the director for that.

    The Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz How many children are haunted by the cry of ‘I’m melting’?

    Horace Giddens in The Little Foxes Nothing is quite as unsettling as Regina (Bette Davis) stone faced as her dying husband pleads for his medicine.

    Arab swordsman in Raiders of the Lost Ark Is there a funnier death scene than Indy pulling his pistol and shooting the larger than life villain skillfully waving a machete?

    Oooo, Willem Dafoe and his brain-busting exit in Wild at Heart.

    William Petersen in To Live and Die in L.A. Despite the title, I wasn’t expecting that….similar in vein to Leo’s demise in The Departed.

    Gene Hackman’s hammy sacrifice in The Poseidon Adventure, although I love the guy’s work. Same for poor Jack Dawson in Titanic, but unexpected.

    Father Karras’es sacrifice in The Exorcist.
    Rutger Hauer’s “android” death in Blade Runner.

    The bodily explosions in Scanners. That Cronenberg, is quite a guy.

    A bad one?

    The guy who ‘fell’ into an empty elevator shaft in one of Rene Zellweger’s films…cant blame myself for forgetting the name of that forgettable film.

    It’s funny that the first thing I thought of when I read the title was Cotillard in Dark Knight Rises, but everyone beat me to it. As for some of the best, Yoda and Emperor Palpatine in the original Star Wars trilogy are fairly memorable, Bambi’s mother and the wife in Up are sad animated deaths, and half of the deaths in Monty Python are hilarious.

    Glad you mentioned these. I cried like a baby for both.

    Romeo and Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. One little change made it so much more devastating to watch. I know some people don’t like the change but I was wrecked by it so whatever.
