    Probably the most satisfying ending to a movie I've ever seen.

    Two words: "Clever girl." Such an undercurrent of respect in his voice as he says it, and then... chomp.

    I was just thinking about Jurassic Park yesterday, Muldoons demise does stand out the most.

    Tombstone
    Johnny Ringo losing a duel with Doc Holiday

    Robocop
    Alex Murphys death, its so over the top but you don't forget it once you've seen it

    The Patriot
    When he takes on the the whole group of British soldiers alone to get his son back, then beats one of them repeatedly with the hatchet in a moment of extreme rage. And the ending using the bayonet and saying his "sons were better men"

    The montage of Carl and Ellie's married life comes to a close with the latter's death, leaving Carl alone and unfulfilled. The most moving moment of anything Pixar has done, and possibly of all American animation.

    Some really good funny ones.

    Adaptation:

    Donald dies in the thriller-esque ending chase, which was when the movie turned into something he would write.

    Burn After Reading:

    Clooney opens his closet door. Pitt gives a goofy smile. Pitt eats a bullet.

    Shoot 'Em Up:

    Giamatti breaks all of Owen's fingers, so Owen puts four bullets between his knuckles, holds them up to the fire place, and they go off and kill Giamatti.

    Pulp Fiction:

    "I just shot Marvin in the face!"

    Evil Dead II:

    "I'll swallow your soul, I'll swallow your soul, I'll swallow your soul..."
    "Swallow this."
    (shotgun blast)

    True Lies:

    the bad guy gets fired--literally and figuratively.

    Zombieland:

    Bill Murray shouldn't have pretended to be a zombie.

    ^Classic moments, gwyn.

    Some great dramatic ones.

    The Wild Bunch

    They all die in the big shootout, going out how they lived.

    No Country For Old Men

    The lack of actually seeing Moss die is perfect for the film's tone.

    Le Samourai

    The assassin set himself up to get killed so the mob wouldn't kill the girl.

    Goodfellas

    The "Layla" montage of whacked mobsters.

    The Godfather

    The baptism/whacked mobsters montage.

    Double Indemnity

    Walter shoots Phyllis as they kiss.

    Strangers on a Train

    Bruno strangles Guy's wife. Simple, but shot in amazing fashion.

    ^ Really cool ones:word:.


    Casino

    Pesci gets buried alive with his brother. Live by the sword, die by...


    Taxi Driver

    After the wounded Keitel shoots Bickle in the neck slightly wounding him, De Niro's Bickle shoots him dead. Good times.


    Nosferatu

    Count Orlok goes up in smoke at the first light of day

    Yeah, that was the one I was going to suggest. As well as:

    ET
    When Elliot freaks out and Gertie jumps at the defribillator as ET flatlines. Of course he's not really dead...but still, :csad:
