Your favourite death from a film. Any death, ever shown on screen.
So many to choose from, so feel free to list a few if you like. You could also cadigorize them. ie. Gun death, Sword death, Style, Lead in etc. You can also detail the reasons for your ranking if you wish.
Il start with some of mine.
Tony Montana - Scarface- "say hello to my lil friend" *Dialogue*
O-Ren Ishii- Kill Bill 1- That was a whole lot of minions to cut through *Lead in*
The Man - Versus- The head kick was spectacular *Style*
Marvin - Pulp Fiction - still funny after 100 times *Humor*

Style- Simon Phoenix in Demolition man (Frozen then has his head kicked off) Gore- Marcus in Underworld: Evolution (knocked into helicopter blades) Overkill- Daxus in Ultraviolet (cut in half while on fire) Ownage- Brandt in Equilibrium (face sliced off in a single swipe) Inventiveness/Humour- Death by teacup in the Chronicles of Riddick Overall- V in V for Vendetta (13 machine gun clips emptied into him, he then kills everyone before they reload, strangles Creedy and gets himself a viking funeral before blowing up the houses of parliament)
Honourable mention: -Nerva in Ultraviolet (face to sword action)
Takeshi Beat Kitano in Battle Royale is my favorite death scene: gets shot down, phone rings, he goes up and answers, talks, hangs up, goes to the couch, sits down, takes a cookie, eats it... THEN he dies!
Also, a movie that I don't expect many of you to have heard about, Ronja Rövardotter with the death of Skalleper is always a sure crack-up...
that one didn't even make sense, but now I have a few more to add:
Class - Casino Royale's gun barrel sequence death Every member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in the two Kill Bill movies: Originality -O-Ren - Scalped Almost Betrayal -Vernita - BANG!, then gets a knife through the chest Drawn-Out -Budd - Lectured about the Black Mamba as he died. Also - Irony. Anticlimax -Bill - 5 point palm exploding heart technique. A fitting end though.

Partridge (Equilibrium) - Innovative. Greatest death ever Darth Vader (ROTJ) - Sad/Inspiring Eldon Tyrell (Blade Runner) - Creepy Mr. White (Casino Royale) - Bond kills him along with the last remnant of his own humanity. Cue classic Bond music. Julian (Children of Men) - Very innovative scene Stuntman Mike (Death Proof - Funny and cheer-inducing Mary (Equilibrium) - Sad, innovative Palpatine - Inspiring/Comeuppance Clarence (RoboCop) Brandt (Eq) - Ownage Award Leonardo DiCaprio (Departed) - The WTF?! award Ellis (Die Hard) - Annoying character takedown award Murphy (RoboCop) Captain Vidal (Pans Labyrinth) -comeuppance award Trevelyan (Goldeneye) - Bond kills yet another enemy in a twisted act of closure. Ofelia (Pans Labyrinth) - brutal/inspiring Emil (RoboCop) Donny (Big Lebowki) - Honestly, this is one of the saddest for me. Funny aftermath Toht (Raiders of the Lost Ark) Qi-Adi Mundi (ROTS) -sad General Grievous - Cool/Graphic Optimus Prime, Prowl, Starscream - Transformers the Movie The Hamster (Live Free or Die Hard Owen Davian (M:I-3) - The shoe is what sold this one
