15 Easily Avoidable Movie Deaths

13. Vega domes Marvin in Pulp Fiction (1994)

If anyone could find hilarity in somebody getting shot in the face, it’s Quentin Tarantino. Hit men Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are driving from the scene of an execution, debating miracles and divine intervention in the wake of a near-death experience, when Vega turns to the back seat, his gun carelessly pointed at their informant, Marvin (Phil LaMarr), with his finger on the trigger and the safety apparently off, to get his opinion. Why does he even have the gun out?

The hand cannon accidentally fires a round, painting the rear window with the young man’s blood and brains, and no doubt inspiring a young Andre 3000 to one day warn us: “Don't pull that thang out, unless you plan to bang.”
