Gene Hackman's demise in "The Unforgiven" when Clint tells him "Fair's got nothing to do with it"

Not graphic or novel in design, just plainly spoken 'chickens comin home to roost' fatalism.

From "the first gore film":

It would have been better if the whole film had suffered the same fate as the evil Ehtar in this clip. There is a classic line here that I've remembered ever since I saw the film at a drive-in in 1963...

Paul Kersey dispatching the villian at the end of DEATH WISH 4 with something like a grenade launcher..(actually just about any of the villians in this series that Bronson disposes of)

Ah, but it isn't 'chickens come home to roost'. The whole point of that line is that in the killer mind there is no forgiveness or punishment or retribution or karma or reward. Little Bill, 'I was building a house' is a reference to the old biblical story of the 'rich man' who was building barns, but death knows no distinctions.

'I'll see you in Hell.'

'Yep'.

The only distinction is that Munny knows the score, admits what he is, whilst sadistic Little Bill deludes himself that he's somehow righteous, but the same fate meets them all.

'I was lucky in the order'. You could say THAT was fatalism.

Speaking of grenade launchers, how about Harry Callahan taking out the terrorist up in the tower on Alcatraz in THE ENFORCER? One of the best!

How about another classic James Bond moment - where Auric Goldfinger gets sucked out of the plane after he and Bond struggle to get the gun, resulting in which Bond shoots the window, and Goldfinger gets sucked out like a life sized doll?

Spoilers ahead. I was glad when Glenn Close died at the end of Fatal Attraction. (Hubby could have suffered a bit more IMHO.) Also, glad when Glenn Close killed Jeff Bridges at the end of Jagged Edge.

Max Cady...Played by Mitchum and De Niro in CAPE FEAR. Glad they died.

John Lithgow in Ricochet and Dexter. Truly evil.

Thrilled to see the wicked shark in JAWS blow up.

Best Comeuppance? The whole theater cheered when Bruce Dern was dragged to death in THE COWBOYS. Nobody kills John Wayne.

Jonathan Pryce's demise in Tomorrow Never Dies always does it for me. Not graphic, but with a little imagination it is an incredibly icky death.

John Cassavettes' explosive demise in The Fury is wonderful.

And once seen, Joe Pantiliano's gross death in Downtown is a real beaut. The sound effects for this one is just so WWrrong.

I never enjoy cruel killing methods in movies nor in reality. Regardless of whether the victim is hero or villain.

Although I have great appreciation for Christopher Lee (Dracula), I just love the way Peter Cushing in Horror Of Dracula (Hammer Films) destroys the evil Count at the end of the movie. Just great!

That's a fantastic one, chilled me to the bone when I saw this as a kid and is still one of the most apt endings one could think of.

Not even Robert Goulet at the end of Naked Gun 2? wink
