    " ... I just shot Marvin in the face."

    "Why'd you do that."

    "I didn't do it on purpose ... you must have hit a bump or something."

    How about Nicholas Cage in "Adaptation" ... through the windshield and shocking as all hell.

    Nicholas Cage's demise in Leaving Las Vegas was pretty good, too. Hopefully, CI won't try to emulate that during his vacation.

    Chick movie division: Meg Ryan in City of Angels, Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment, Olivia de Havilland in Gone with the Wind.


    Goose in Top Gun.

    Willem DeFoe in To Live and Die in LA (getting burned alive is always a scene stealer)

    James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces (best death sentence scene ever).

    Damn...also forgot Cagney in White Heat ("Made it ma...top of the world!!!")
  5. Had to tap dance / explain Bambi's mom to my kids.

    Made up my mind to never rent Old Yeller.

    Remember the classic Friends when Phoebe found out that her mother never let her see the sad endings to kid movies like Bambi and Old Yeller?
    Then she saw them, after noticing that Monica and Rachel were sobbing at the end of Old Yeller.

    Seeing Leo freeze to death in Titanic.

    Goddamn, I hated Jack Dawson. I hope dying of hypothermia was painful, you son of a bitch!

    Marv on the electric chair in Sin City.

    (Spits blood). "Is that all you got?!"

    Freaky movie

    I was shocked when that happened. I was like, "Really? Did that just happen? Wow. Awesome."

    My favorite death was when Home Alone's mom dropped him off the cliff instead of Froto in The Good Son.

    Honorable mention goes to Pat Swayze ripping out dude's throat in Road House after dude said he used to fuck guys like Swayze in prison.
