# 86 – The Fellowship of the Ring
"…and THIS is for saying that Kid Icarus is better than Metroid!"
As with Starship Troopers, we had an equally difficult time selecting the kill to represent this glorious film. Ultimately, we figured you can’t go wrong with a good beheading, so the nod went to the death of Lurtz. After using Boromir as his new archery target, Lurtz is attacked by a rampaging Viggo Mortensen. A great fight ensues, but in the end the large Uruk-hai warrior is no match for the one-time Amish farmer, and he falls prey to his blade. As the head soars into the sky, jets of black blood spurts up after it. Not only is this a great death scene, it’s also shocking! (S.M.)
