What movie death would you choose for yourself?

For me it would be Carlson at the end of Lifeforce. What a way to go.

If you were to choose a movie death for yourself, what would it be?

Whichever ends with the main character dying peacefully in their sleep.

I'd rather it not be painful so whichever character gets tapped in the back of the head without knowing it was coming.

A parachute not opening... that's a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine... having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that's the way I wanna go.

I'd want my head to explode on live television, like in Scanners.

The only correct answer is Rose in Titanic -- maybe minus the part where you throw away your family's massive inheritance right before you expire.

If I must die, and I emphasize if and must, the only acceptable answer is Ray Liotta's character Paul Krendler in Hannibal.

"Heeeeeyyy... That smells great!"

Depends on the family, Decks. Depends on the family.

ETA: not to air too much Paff dirty laundry, but if my mom had a rock like that she'd launch it off the port bow with a slingshot. And probably yell "Pull!" too.

Or you could take the George Costanza interpretation of the movie and think the old lady just made up the entire story.

Richie Gecko in From Dusk Till Dawn.

It might have been painful at the very end, but for the last few minutes he was living his best life.

ETA: Sticking with Tarantino scripts, Dennis Hopper in True Romance. He knew damn well he was about to die no matter what he said. Did he plead for his life? Try to talk his way out of it? Cry? No. He went out stringing together the absolute nastiest thing he could say to the guy who was gonna kill him. And died smiling as a result.

I find it hard to believe that this is not everybody's answer.

Or the way Bill Mitchell suffered his stroke in Dave

Even with some creative photo editing I opted for canned salmon instead of Arthur Jarrett.

There is a certain logic to the fact that Rose walked away from a life of wealth and privilege, and then made her own way, starting out with nothing. So she would not see the value in handing over wealth to her children or grandchildren, but would purposefully not want to hand it over to them.
