Geocache Description:


In the movie, Reservoir Dogs, Mr Pink is the only bad guy of the entire motley mofioso mob, to make it out alive while the rest, including the undercover cop, all meet their demise as the internal quarrels escalate into the final bloodbath.

Oddly enough, this is the antithesis of the characters Mr. Pink plays in other films where his character inevitably dies. This is especially true in his Cohen brothers film roles where his character not only meets an untimely and unusual end but is also reduced to an increasingly smaller remnant of his self in successive films.

Now, I am not a fan of violent films, particularly the recent and ever-growing onslaught of gorefests like Kill Bill or the Saw series and its ilk. On the other hand, when a director uses a violent action sequence or shot in a plot-critical or unusual way in a film, that I can appreciate.

In one of the Cohen brothers films, Mr. Pink is stuffed into a wood chipper and all we see is his foot sticking out as his partner-in-crime tries to jam even more of him it into the chipper. It is a deeply disturbing scene and yet, somehow, very comical as you just don't see it coming and can't help but laugh during that scene.

This is what I love about the Cohen brothers films and Mr. Pink's roles in them. To die of a heart attack after facing a group of nihilists with knives is just plain hilarious and then to have his ashes accidentally fly into the face of the protagonist and the end of the film is pure comic genius.

I was surprised to discover that Mr. Pink has maintained this bad habit in other films and that he now flips to the end of the screenplays presented to him just to see how his character will die.

Your job is to match the descriptions of Mr. Pinks many passings to the films in the above image and then determine the year the film or guest appearance was released.

A: Stabbed in the back with an icepick.
B: Hacked to pieces, then stuffed in to a wood chipper.
C: Dies when his spirit is forced out of his body.
D: Scalped by Native Americans
E: Dies of heart attack when attacked by nihilists
F: Dies of flesh-eating disease in the jungle
G: Shot in the chest by Christopher Lloyd
H: Shotgun blast to the head by character of the same name.
I: Shot in the face, later mistaken as his assailant.
