Way of the Dragon - Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris

The final duel takes place between Tang Lung(Bruce Lee) and the best of the foreign martial artists, Colt(Chuck Norris) in the Roman Colosseum. Two worlds collide in this fight: Chuck’s modern karate style fighting and Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. If there were a martial arts Hall Of Fame, this fight would be in it. EPIC.

Top Gun - Goose's Death

Maverick gets caught in a jet wash; his F-14's engines flame out, and he enters a flat spin from which he cannot recover, meaning both he and Goose are forced to eject. Maverick ejects clear of the airplane, but Goose ejects directly into the jettisoned cockpit canopy and is killed on impact. Goose! NOOOOOOO! Now who's Maverick going to harmonize with on "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin?"

Saw II - Venus Fly Trap

Michael wakes up and looks in the mirror, he sees his eye is badly cut and has the venus fly trap device around his neck. The TV set in the room turns on, it shows Jigsaw doing something to Micheals face while he is sleeping. The tape shows that Jigsaw has put the key to the lock on the device inside his face, underneath his right eye. The only way to get the key is for Michael to slice open his eye and remove it. Michael walks over to a tool box in the room and pulls out a scalple, which in turn pulls the string off the fly trap and sets off the timer. 60 seconds til it closes on his face. He tries to slice open his eye to get the key, but just can't seem to do it......
Thanks to Dave for the request, "that's all I do"

The Rock - Crushed!

The Rock is full of over-the-top kills, but there's just something special about this one. During a machine gun battle, Mason ends up shooting under a desk and tearing up the bad guy's feet. When the dying goon threatens to throw his hand grenade, Mason shoots an industrial air conditioner unit which falls and crushes the guy.

The Frighteners - Dammers' Demise

Directed by Oscar winner Peter Jackson, The Frighteners mixes comedy, thriller, and horror very well. Although it was a Box Office disappointment in 1996, it was a must see just for it's amazing digital effects. Michael J. Fox gives one of his best roles, but Jeffrey Combs(Re-Animator) steals the show.

When Peter Jackson learned during post-production that the MPAA was going to give the movie an R-rating (despite many efforts to go for a PG-13 rating), he made Milton Dammers' death scene more gruesome by blowing up his head instead of just having him shot in the chest and blown through the chapel doors. This caused a lot of problems with the European censors, who cut the one continuous shot into two shots, minus the bullet blowing up the head. The U.S. television version uses the take where Dammers is blown through the chapel doors.

Look for R. Lee Ermey as he spoofs his own role from Full Metal Jacket

Wizard of Oz - Wicked Witch Melting

Is The Wizard of Oz a drug movie? Joe Baltake of the Sacramento Bee referred to The Wizard of Oz as "the definitive head film" for the counterculture in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Well I guess any movie with a talking lion and flying monkeys is trippy enough, but the sequel, Return to Oz, will fuck up your childhood. Damn Wheelers......

The Blob - Eaten by the Blob

Usually, when they attempt a remake of a classic sci-fi/horror flick, they bungle it beyond redemption. "The Blob" is actually a pretty good remake. The story is somewhat the same in the first part as a meteor falls to the earth and an old man finds it and pokes it with a stick. Now it starts differing from the original as a host of people get killed off and the blob gets bigger. The Gooey grotesque special effects are the true star thanks to director Chuck Russell.

Nightmare on Elm Street - Freddy's First Kill

While this was not Krueger's first kill based on historical events(that would be the murders he committed before burned alive by the lynch mob)this was Freddy's first on-screen kill in the series. Tina, lured outside into the alleyway courtesy of a fateful dream is sliced and diced in the stomach by Freddy's razor claws and then dragged up into the ceiling as her helpless boyfriend looked on. Classic.

Goldfinger - Gold Suffocation

Shirley Eaton underwent two hours of make-up application which involved being gild painted to become a gold corpse. A doctor was on set at all times in fear of possible skin suffocation(despite popular belief skin suffocation can't occur)

Her shots lasted less than five minutes in the finished film and the filming wrapped in a morning's work. To remove the gold paint from all over her body, Shirley Eaton was scrubbed down by the wardrobe mistress and the make-up girl, and then had to sweat off the remaining gold in a number of Turkish baths.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - Sword vs Gun

The infamous scene in which Indy shoots a marauding and flamboyant swordsman was not in the original script. Harrison Ford was supposed to use his whip to get the swords out of his attacker's hands, but the food poisoning he and the rest of the crew had gotten made him too sick to perform the stunt. After several unsuccessful tries, someone made the off-handed remark, "Why doesn't he just shoot him and get it done and over with?" Steven Spielberg immediately took up the idea and the scene was successfully filmed.

Just think, if Ford wasn't sick that day, we would not have this great scene and if Tom Selleck wasn't committed to "Magnum, P.I." He would've been cast as the original Indiana Jones, yeckkkk!

Sukiyaki Western Django

SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO shows Miike in playful mode with a film that is surprisingly more fun than most of his other films. The film really has to be seen to be believed! In this scene, we see what happens when you DON'T stop a sword with your hands. The scene is done more as a joke, especially when you see the victim still clapping his hand still trying to stop the sword. If Takashi Miike’s comedic set-ups do not get you going, the dialogue spoken with the outrageous Japanese accents will. And when you finally stop laughing, Tarantino appears doing his fake Japanese accent.

Jason X - Sleeping Bag Kill Tribute

Trying to distract Cyborg Jason, the resident nerd programs a holodeck recreation of Crystal Lake circa 1980, and two babes show up offering Jason beer, weed, and pre-marital sex. "We love pre-marital sex," they announce, taking off their tops and climbing into sleeping bags. So Jason pays tribute to Friday the 13th part 7 and beats them to death using their own sleeping bags. It's funny, but it's also the perfect example of why you can't make these movies anymore, everyone knows the rules. Someone needs to reinvent the whole genre, which in a weird way is what Jason X was trying to do.

Friday the 13th part 7 - Sleeping Bag Kill

Jason slashes his way into Judy's tent and what does she do? She crawls under her sleeping bag and quivers with fear. So Jason drags her out of the tent, still in her sleeping bag and walks her over to a tree while she screams in a crazed panic.
He picks up the sleeping bag and swings it right into the tree, silencing Judy and her screams in an instant. It's violent, it's hilarious and it will always remain one my favorite kills of his. The filmmakers of Jason X apparently liked this scene a lot too as they paid tribute to it

The fact that the trap itself is very slow and twists the victim's limbs one at a time ensuring intense agony before death makes this death stand out from the other Saw kills.

In this scene from Ghost in the Machine, our victim is cooked to death when Karl supercharges the man's microwave so that the entire kitchen turns into a giant microwave oven. We see popcorn popping, eggs blowing up, and eventually our victim cooked until even his blood starts boiling.

Dr. Strangelove - A-Bomb Ride

I love how Kubrick could make one of the most angst-filled themes possible work so incredibly well as a comedy. The film has aged well through time, still relevant in my book. In easily the most memorable scene of the movie, Major T.J. "King" Kong rides the bomb down like Falkor the luckdragon in The NeverEnding Story and makes every human being watching immediately think to themselves "That is exactly how I want to go out!"

Anaconda - Jon Voight vs Giant Snake

In this scene from Anaconda Jon Voight gets tackled by the mega-snake then crushed until his cheek bones break from the force of the squeeze. Then we see a camera shot from inside the snake as the mouth opens and it begins to swallow him. The best part comes a couple of scenes later when you think Voight is a goner, the snake regurgitates him all covered with digestive juices. To make it even better, Voight is still alive and winks at Jennifer Lopez before falling to the ground.
