I’m reviving this topic from the recent past. Maybe I find it more fascinating than my readers, but hey, it’s my blog.

The idea is to come up with a list of the most unusual and spectacular deaths from Bond movies. Bond doesn’t have to be the killer, and it can be good guys or bad guys. Maybe it’ll be more interesting if I include the movies. I’ve also thought of a few more to add to the list.

  • Electrocuted: Goldfinger (Two different ones! In the tub, and in Fort Knox.)
  • Blown out of an airplane: Goldfinger and Die Another Day (In the latter case, also sucked into a plane engine, very Joss Whedon)
  • Dropped off the back of a jet: The Living Daylights
  • Impaled with a fishing speargun: Thunderball
  • Eaten by piranha: You Only Live Twice
  • Set on fire and tossed into the ocean: Diamonds Are Forever
  • Blown up with a gas pellet: Live and Let Die
  • Blown into space: Moonraker
  • Crushed by a printing press: Tomorrow Never Dies
  • Pushed off a cliff: For Your Eyes Only
  • Set on fire in the desert: Licence to Kill
  • Crushed by a satellite dish: GoldenEye
  • Fallen off the top of a small plane: Octopussy
  • Frozen in place: GoldenEye
  • Strangled on a tree: GoldenEye
  • Impaled on his own missile: Tomorrow Never Dies
  • Impaled by an ice chandelier: Die Another Day
  • Chopped up by an ice chopper: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
  • Chopped up by a cocaine grinder: Licence to Kill
