Pouring one out for all the movie deaths on the big screen.

Death scenes in movies can be one of the most effective ways to keep the spirit of the film alive after it ends. A good movie death can range from gruesome, to heartbreakingly sad, to downright hilarious. Either way, when done right, it can make the audience elicit an emotion that connects ourselves to the movie and it’s characters for years to come. Join Tuong La and That’s How I Remember It/Sonar Network’s Michael Mongiardi, John Richardson, and Raul Delgado as they relive the most memorable demises in cinema and rank Top 5 Iconic Death Scenes in Movies.

Ground Rules

  • We are talking about specifically the scene from a movie rather than just a death of a character (ie deaths that are mentioned by a character in another scene don’t count)
  • Character has to actually die in the scene
  • The nominations are stronger if they are impactful, emotional, or just overall exciting that elevate the movie
  • We don’t need to account for if that character comes back later in the movie or in a sequel
  • The golden question: Is the scene still iconic if it’s only been around in the last year or two? Debatable.
  • Obviously SPOILERS in this episode
  • **These description may not make a lot of sense in the show notes. Better to listen to the episode to hear the full context **
