The 10 Most Amazing Damn Movie Deaths Ever

The End had a good weekend.

According to, Harry Potter's final, holy-shit-epic installment has already made astonishing 168 million dollars in the United States ($475.5 million worldwide). That's a new record. On its midnight screening, Harry Potter raked in over $43 million.

And there was some good movie dying. Potter fans who saw the movie this weekend know that the deaths are both tear-inducing (to put it so, so mildly), and incredible. For those who haven't seen it, we won't spoil the big show.

What we will do, however, is use this as an excuse to barrage you with the most hair-raising, bad-ass, fucking incredible deaths in movies that we know about. These are not just gory deaths. These are deaths in cinema that were shots-heard-round-the-world. Oh yes, we present (after the jump): The most bad ass huge movie deaths of all time.
