Monday Movie Meme: To Die For...


There are death scenes in movies that are really scary, some are funny, and some are really heartbreaking.....

Here's my list:

Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Harrison Ford was scheduled to have a massive duel with his whip and the giant sword master guy. Apparently Ford and most of the cast got very sick from the food in Cairo, Egypt and being so under the weather Ford was unable to do the entire whip battle scene, so instead after the sword master puts on his show of talents, Indy just shoots him. I think this is a funny death scene.

Thelma and Louise
The tragic drive toward their doom and making the choice to end things on their terms. The embrace of a hands solidifies the power and commitment of their feminist choice making it an unforgettable moment in cinema.

Jurassic Park
The scene where the T-Rex cocks his head to the side as though to decide whether or not a blood sucking lawyer will in fact be a worthy meal, and then violently tears his massive head down on Gennaro lifting his body off the toilet and swinging his prey to death. This scene is evokes a sense of karma in the universe, a bit of comedy, and a lot of terror.

... and of course.... the funniest...
Tropic Thunder......... the scene where the director was blown into pieces because he stepped on a mine.....

I love all your choices. The Indy one was quite funny wasn't it? I didn't know the backstory on that - interesting!
