21 of the Coolest On-Screen Deaths in Pop-Culture History

Death is a very serious thing of which we should never make light, whether in person, in print or on-screen — that is, unless a movie is basically a live-action cartoon filled with sweet-ass and unmistakably deadly explosions. Or maybe a movie is serious, but the death is poetic or shocking, or the most deserved, or the mortal equivalent of spitting a sick one-liner before lowering your sunglasses and skateboarding off into the distance.

Whatever the case, just about everybody can name an on-screen death that blew their mind, whether through poignancy or sheer dopeness. So when user BeebleBees asked r/AskReddit, “What do you think is the coolest death in a tv show/movie/game?,” thousands of Redditors remembered demises they watched that were truly killer.
