Movie Deaths Database, the best and worst Hollywood Homicides *:-)

team_america-robbins-1.jpg

Welcome to the MDDB, a tongue-in-cheek movie reviews site dedicated to documenting deathscenes in films.

We love films, we enjoy critiquing the cinematography, the musical score, the script, plot and more.

But there are thousands of sites that do that.

So, we decided to concentrate on a key component of most dramatic works, the Death-Scene.

This is a powerful tool in the script-writer and director's utility belt, and we'd like to think they agonise over the best way to dispatch a character who may often have been built up over a period of several hours.

Sadly though, over the years we've come to realise that the Death-Scene leaves most directors reaching for their generic Plot-by-Numbers book as the same tired clichés are used over and over again.

This site then, aims to show up the worst offenders and also to recognise those scenes where the creative team went to that little bit of extra effort to make the scene stand out in our memory.

First time to the site? We now have 930 reviews for you to enjoy!
