      Yeah man. Vinnie Vega violating numbers 2 and 3 of Col Coopers’s rules. It’s funny when a gangsta gets shot. It’s hilarious when they get their head blown off.

      I feel like a total psychopath, but that scene sends me in to hysterics. As does the scene in “Burn After Reading” where Brad Pitt is shot in the face. And in “Intolerable Cruelty” when the hit man gets… yeah. Shot in the face.

  8. Eduardo: Who do they think they’re fooling? Shot up that way, could be anybody.
    Pepe: He fooled them again.
    Innocente: Are you sure?
    Eduardo: I rode with him. I fought with him all these years. They think they can fool me? They can’t kill him.
    Pepe: They’ll never get him. Can you capture a river? Can you kill the wind?
    Eduardo: No, he’s not a river and he’s not the wind, he’s a man! And still they can’t kill him.
    Lazaro: Then where is he?
    Eduardo: He’s in the mountains. You couldn’t find him now. But if we ever need him again, he’ll be back.
    Lazaro: Yes… he’s in the mountains.

  10. And not so much the death itself but Woody’s note in Three Billboards: “Willoughby: My Darling Anne, There’s a longer letter in the dresser drawer I’ve been writing for the last week or so, that one covers us, and my memories of us, and how much I’ve always loved you. This one just covers tonight, and more importantly, today. Tonight I have gone out to the horses to end it. I cannot say sorry for the act itself, although I know for a short time you will be angry at me, or even hate me for it. Please don’t. This is not a case of, I came in this world alone and I’m goin’ out of it alone, or anything dumb like that. I did not come in this world alone, my mom was there. And I am not goin’ out of it alone, ’cause you were there, drunk on the couch, making Oscar Wilde cock jokes. No, this is a case, in some senses, of bravery. Not the bravery of facing a bullet down. The next few months of pain would be far harder than that small flash. No, it’s the bravery of weighing up the next few months of still being with you, still waking up with you, of playing with the kids… Against the next few months of seeing in your eyes how much my pain is killing you. How my weakened body, as it ebbs away, and you tend to it, are your final and lasting memories of me. I won’t have that. Your final memories of me will be us at the riverside, and that dumb fishing game, which I think they cheated at. And me inside of you, and you on top of me… And barely a fleeting thought, of the darkness yet to come. That was the best Anne. A whooole day of not thinking about it. Dwell on this day baby, ’cause it was the best day of my life. Kiss the girls for me, and know that I’ve always loved you… And maybe I’ll see ya again if there’s another place, and if there ain’t… Well, it’s been heaven knowing you. Your Boy, Bill

    I’m game. I’ll say the ending shoot-out in the Wild Bunch…two scenes from Once Upon a Time in the West, the first being Harmonica’s cryptic line “you brought two too many” before he shoots the three cowboys or Frank’s final recollection of where he’d seen Harmonica before after he’s shot at the end…”Earn this” from Saving Private Ryan…the ending to Dirty Harry, “Do ya feel lucky, punk?” as he blasts Scorpio…and the death of Vader in Return of the Jedi.

    I’m shocked that Sean Bean isn’t in the top ranks of that list.

    Roy Batty’s death scene in Blade Runner is a classic one that springs to mind, although maybe not my most memorable. And I’ll probably catch hell for this, but Optimus Prime’s death in the animated Transformers movie from the 80s is one that’s always stuck with me. Cut me some slack though, I was 5 years old at the time.

    On a somewhat different note, I remember a lot of Schwarzenegger’s kills (not deaths) from his 80s/90s movies because of the so-bad-they’re-good one-liners that accompanied them.

    Dick Halloran getting the axe in The Shining has always stuck with me. Does the shower scene in Psycho count as an on-screen death? Because that seems like it would rank number one on an all-time list.

    Two from Shane. When Jack Palance guns down the farmer in the street and the shootout in the saloon when Shane kills Wilson ( Palance ).

    Shane: I’ve heard about you.
    Jack Wilson: What have you heard, Shane?
    Shane: I’ve heard that you are a low-down Yankee liar.

    A dog lying on the saloon floor then gets up and runs outside. He knows the shit is about to hit the fan. Awesome.

        I have heard that. I think it was left open to the viewer to decide. I prefer to think that his side was smartin’ a bit from the wound. Either way, Shane knew the world had passed him by.
