    I would have contributed earlier but I couldn't think of any off the top of my head that are worthy of "greatest". Maybe later when i'm off of work.

    I assume you mean the two good King Kong movies, not that abomination from the 70's.

    Definitely not one of "the greatest," but Kaneda's death in Sunshine was quite an experience, especially set to that awesome piece by John Murphy.

    This was my absolute favorite for years and that touch at the end adds more meaning.

    Sunshine

    When Mace ( Evans ) dies somewhat sacrificially to save everyone after being kind of a jerk until that point. Chris Evans best acting by far.
