A quick how-to on spoiler tags!

Surround the information that will give away important plot details/conclusions/climaxes with [spoi1er], [/spoi1er].

(1 used in place of the letter l)

Example:

[spoi1er]Tom Sizemore[/spoi1er]
Spoiler:
Tom Sizemore


OK, now you try!

We all know it's not HOW many times you die, or WHEN you die, it's who you're killed BY.

For this, we have to make a special mention for Bill Paxton, killed by three of sci-fi's greats -
Spoiler:
The Terminator, Predator, and a Xenomorph Alien
.

"Game over, man", indeed.

Presumably, Willem Dafoe also died in The Last Temptation of Christ. Which I don't deem worthy of putting in spoiler tags.

How about Bill Murray? In Groundhog Day alone, he must have died 127 times...

In Vincent Price's biography, his daughter writes that she couldn't watch many of his movies because he died in them.

Joe Pesci dies in films a lot.

My problem is that some actors that I'd LIKE to see die in films, like David Arquette, just never seem to die.
