I'd have to say Masalla's death bed scene after the chariot race. For a film as old as it is, it's an excruciating death scene, full of pain and rage, knowing that he'd lost and yet even tries at the last to get the best of Judah when he divulges the tragic whereabouts of Judah's mother and sister. It's still tough to watch after seeing it so many times.

I remember the first time I saw Bonnie & Clyde in the theater. Their death scene was the most shocking scene I'd ever witnessed.

My favorite death scene was a very tender and loving scene. It was near the end of Terms Of Endearment. The dying daughter sent a small grateful smile to her mom, her mom smiled back and the daughter died. So tender and poignant.

One of the great death scenes was in WHO IS HARRY KELLERMAN AND WHY IS HE TELLING THESE TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT ME-71-But don't ask me what the whole film is about. I first saw it when I was 10 years old and I saw it a few years ago and it still does not make much sense to me, great ending though.

Too many to choose from. Narrowing down, it would have to be Travolta in Broken Arrow and Lloyd Bridge's in Blown Away.

In OHMSS, newlywed Diana Rigg was shot by Blofeld's assistant Irma as the couple drove away in Bond's Aston Martin after their wedding.

Some of my favourites from the Bond films -

Mr Big - "inflated opinion of himself"
Goldfinger - classic de-pressurisation
Chris Walken in AVTAK - that manic smile
Benicio Del Toro in LTK - ditto
Krest, also in LTK - pop goes the bad guy
Vargas - who "got the point" in Thunderball
Red Grant in FRWL - still the best fight scene of the series
Un-named henchman in OHMSS - the one who had "lots of guts"

Paul Reubens did a great one in the Buffy The Vampire Slayer film. That's my fave smile

On a more serious note, I'd go with Rutger Hauer (also in the above film) in Blade Runner. Great dialogue, sheer class.

Apparently they got a lot of grief for Kirk's death scene in Generations, but I think it works pretty well. It is just sad to see your hero die, and he sound a little scared at what he is seeing, but it is emotionally effective, and Picard is there to see it. It works well.

Of course the scene in Wrath of Khan always gets me.

HAMMER FILMS always made sure their drac, films had exciting endings, and they all did. But I loved the one in SCARS OF DRACULA, when drac is ready to send a spike at the hero on top of the castle. A lightning bolt comes down and strikes the spike drac is holding, causing him to get well done pretty fast like a piece of meat on a charcoal burner. Sending him to a flaming inferno death. Love it.

Then there was the classic controversial ending of THE BLACK CAT-34- KARLOFF- AND- BELA-if you think about all the terrible things KARLOFF' S character did in his life against BELA'S character and humanity, The ending might have been strong but justified.

Also was it a Lethal Weapon film where Riggs put's a grenade in a villains mouth then pulls the pin out?

Good choice. An excellent scene to a unfairly maligned movie.

Believe that was Rutgers Hauer in Wanted Dead or Alive...
