1). Bad guy death scenes so brutal you actually felt bad for the dude: In the last Rambo movie, it will be when Rambo just obliterated the driver's head at point blank with the mounted 50cal machine gun & what was, uh, "left" of him just fell off the jeep. Sure, he made have killed hundreds with the "landmine game" & threw a lot of babies into fires, but for all we know, that dude was just following orders & had no choice. On the other hand, the leader dude got what he deserved.

2). Poisoning: In Casino Royale, when Le Chiffre has his hot girlfriend poison Bond's drink & Bond just barely survives.

3). Most impressive shape-shifting technology: Instead of going with robots that begin with the letter 'T', I'll go with the vechicles from the M.A.S.K. cartoon. A car that can fly by using its doors as wings(?), a helicopter that can turn into a plane, or a speedboat that can come out of a jeep. (OK, so maybe the jeep example wasn't so impressive.)

I just wanted to change one of my picks since the topic was slightly changed.

If it's Death by Poisoning, I'll go with the 1989 Batman, when that reporter died during the newscast thanks to the new & improved Joker products.

Warning: Don't bother with Death Proof. This movie had to feature the most boring conversations ever. The scenes with the ladies talking about cars or the Vanishing go on forever & don't advance the story or develop their characters. I was watching this at the theater & I'm begging them to GET TO THE POINT ALREADY! The only good parts of the movie were Kurt Russell & the car chases.

Note to Dave: The poison in "The Jackal" as far as I know is based on real toxins. Shellfish oil can kill people like the movie portrayed, but it generally takes a little more time than the movie showed.
