Best Death Scenes in a Movie

    So I was listening to a radio show the other night, and they went on about what the best death scenes in a movie were. I began to think, and here are my top 3.

    1.) Platoon - Willem Dafoe (when he is gunned down in the jungle)
    2.) Scarface - Al Pacino (Say hello to my little friend, shotgun to the back)
    3.) Braveheart - Mel Gibson (his slow painful death that symbolized the movie and his plight)

    What are yours?

    Don't know his name, but the guy in LOTR: Return of the King that was the steward of the White City died by jumping off a huge tower while on fire, and he was jumping into a battle of epic proportions.

    EDIT: Also, Tom Sizemore in Saving Private Ryan. He gets shot in the back several times and responds "I just had the wind knocked out of me, I'll be fine."

    It's not a movie, but Bobby Bacala's death in the toy store with the model trains in the Sopranos was exceptionally well done.

    I'll nominate two more from The Untouchables. The train station scene when Costner and Garcia corners the last hoodlum, holding the accountant hostage on the stairway. The second one when Costner shoves Nitti off the roof of the courthouse. When asked by Garcia "where is Nitti?", Costner (Ness) replies, "He's in the car."

    Any one of several from SE7EN

    The guy eating himself to death is one of the most gruesome things I have seen......and of course, the ending of the movie.
