    Arrow through the throat in the original "Friday the 13th."

    Re: Jack Dawson in Titanic, it always seems to me that they give up too easily on trying to find a way form both of them to balance out of the water on that door.

    And a great death montage is all the minor players in the Luftansa heist turning up dead in Goodfellas, esp. the guy who looks like Eugene Levy's Bobby Bittman character hanging in the meat freezer.

    "When they found Carbone in the meat truck, he was frozen so stiff it took them three days to thaw him out for the autopsy."

    I watched Bambi with a friend and her 2 kids, a girl, 6 and a boy, 4. My friend and I were concerned about the kids' reactions and were expecting having to explain Bambi's mom's death.

    The kids had no reaction. The 4 year old said "Oh, did they shoot Bambi's mom?" The 6 year old responded, "Yeah, Bambi's mom is dead." That was it. No tears. No questions about death. Nothing.

    William Peterson's death was pretty shocking as well.

    I second (or third, or fourth) Marvin in Pulp Fiction. First time I saw that in the theater I busted up laughing.

    Also, Lady Death Strike in X-Men 2, getting pumped full of adamanthium.

    And when I was a kid, my brother and I would rewind and slo-mo the shipyard scene from Die Hard (2?) where a guy gets cut in half with a cable. That was just the coolest thing to us.

    "Still trying to outsmart me, aren't you, Muleskinner? You want me to think that you don't want me to go down there, but the subtle truth is, you really don't want me to go down there!"

    When Bruce Willis throws the terrorists body out the window in Die Hard onto the cop car. I'll never forget the first time I saw that.

    You should see the dance floor scene at the beginning of Ghost Ship then. Freaky.

    Most stunning:

    When a Confederate deserter sticks a sword through Jimmy Stewart's son in "Shenandoah."

    When the captain of the British dragoons shoots Mel Gibson's son in "The Patriot," (early) and then knifes Heath Ledger (later) .

    Johnny Depp in Nightmare on Elm Street
  11. Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner
    Harris Yulin in Scarface
    James Woods in Once Upon a Time in America. Ok, a reach, but I've never seen a garbage truck like that.

    Leo's breathless dialogue in that film:


    If you had had Jeff Spicoli on the ship, you would (phonetically) have had Citizen Kane's sled.
