Death Scenes: What a Way to Go-Go | SIDEBAR FOREVER

February 8, 2021
In a movie, a death scene is not unlike a dramatic scene, a love scene and even an action scene. They all serve to advance the story and make an impact on the viewer. But sometimes when a despicable character in a film meets a gruesome end, it can also be ... enjoyable?
 
On today's episode, Dwight and Swain discuss the most outrageous, shocking, and in certain cases, meaningful deaths in popular TV and film. We’re talking Hans Gruber falling off the Nakatomi in 'Die Hard', Quint getting gobbled up by the great white in 'Jaws', the off-screen passing of James Evans on 'Good Times', Carrie's abusive mother being telekinetically crucified by her daughter, and a bunch more.
 
We also get into surprise deaths that you didn't see coming like Ned Stark losing his head in season one of 'Game of Thrones' as well as deaths that move a central character forward like the untimely demise of King T'Chaka in Marvel's 'Civil War'. 
 
As always, thanks for listening.
