10 Memorable Film Deaths by Non-Memorable Characters

10 Memorable Film Deaths by Non-Memorable Characters

This article from Mania.com:
http://www.mania.com/10-memorable-fi...86.html?page=2

From that list I think the most memorable was Emil in Robocop. I laughed out load when I saw that scene for the first time . Then I remember watching ER and saying "Look! It's the toxic waste guy from Robocop!"

What do you think is the best memorable film death by a non-memorable character?

The Lost World: Jurassic Park...

While on the rampage in San Diego, the T-Rex chows down on a squealing David Koepp. Beauty and justice.

Poor list.

The Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom death is far more memorable than anything that happened in Panís Labyrinth.

Even though it's too recent, I'm sure the Magic Trick in TDK will get as memorable as time goes by.

Regarding the exploding head from Scanners, on IMDB it says:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081455/
"The exploding head scene was accomplished by filling a latex head with dog food and rabbit livers, and shooting it from behind with a 12-gauge shotgun."

A tad off-topic, a tad not, but which decapitation is superior: David Warner's in The Omen or David Thewlis' in the remake?

I hated the remake, but I seem to remember thinking David Thewlis' decapitation was better.

Yeah, I prefer the severance of Thewlis' head. It's a close call. Almost neck and neck*...

I think its because that character got to actually do something, while the Running Man dude simply ran and got COMPLETELY OWNED. Also, Arnold + facial hair = too ****ing manly in the Running Man. It quite scary actually.

For a sparsely populated movie, Chigurh's death-toll is quite extraordinary...

Here's a good clip, not sure what it's from but features Anne Ramsey who played Ma Fratelli in The Goonies:


That clip would work great as a Spalding commercial.

Love the comment someone posted on that Youtube page:
I don't think even Kobe could've caught that pass...

X-Men 2

I was always fond of this scene:

Quote:
He brings Magneto's food into his cell. Magneto immediately tells him that something is different about him. Magneto gets up, holds his hand out, and the guard is raised into the air. Magneto tells him that the iron in his blood has increased. He then sucks all the iron out of the guard's blood, turns them into iron balls, and breaks out of the prison.
