My Coolest Movie Weapons

Some of the best characters in movies aren't actors. It's that thing that they hold in their hands that wreaks havoc and makes the movie all the more entertaining for the rest of us movie idiots.

Without much ado, here are my Favorite Movie Weapons.

The Throwing Star

Krull
I got this with my happy meal

Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted one of these. Sure it's aerodynamically impossible to hurl, it being made with heavy brass and all, plus the contours of the blades don't really genreate maximum airlift...but hey its magical and can choose what to hit, where to hit it, and fly back to its owner after dodging 134 different arrows!


Wolverine's Claws

The X-Men Movies

I dont see the fracture...but what the heck is that?!?

Adamatium claws that retract at will may not be for everyone, especially if you don't have the superhuman power to heal your self (like i do).

read between the lines!


Nameless' Sword

Hero

sale only P2.50

Jet Li's sword with a wedge shaft in the middle was the best sword idea since the light saber. Imagine being able to dislodge your opponent's sword from his hands by letting the sword wedge through the hole and twisting it out of your enemy's grip! Brilliant. You will, though need to have surgeon's hands to pull off a trick like that.


What the..I want one too..

Blain's Gattling Gun

Predator

Image hosting by Photobucket

Jessie Ventura's character Blain was one of the more likeable gung ho ones, and he had the biga** gun that sprayed the entire perimeter aroud the platoon before they pressed forward. Although Blain was killed, he is forever immortalized by this obnoxious weapon the buzz left by the machine after he ran out of bullets.

The .44 Magnum

Dirty Harry

you should see my OTHER gun

I heard this gun doesn't actually cut a big, gaping hole in your head when you get shot with it. It turns into tomato paste.

"Go ahead, punk. Make my day!"

The BFG

Doom

how much is this?

Playing the game, the BFG is what you wanted to get so you could coast through the game and cut through your enemies like butter. The BFG in the move was used only once, but oh boy did it make a lasting, gaping impression.

The Hammer

OldBoy (Thanks to jegs)

open wide...

I cant believe I left this out. Once jegs reminded me about this. It reminded me of the dreadful scene in OldBoy involving this hammer and a jailkeeper's front teeth. Truly a milestone in the field of Dentisty.

Thanks again dude.


The Hattori Hanzo Sword

Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2

beware of Imitations

"...If on your journey, you should encounter God, God will be cut."

Hattori Hanzo's statement that "without ego, this was his finest sword" is enough for all of us to be convinved that this is one bada** samurai sword. Come on, it can cut other swords in half!

The One Ring

The Lord of the Rings Movies

Such power, from such an expensive little prop

Probably the most powerful weapon on the list. It's pursuers die and generations of humans, elves and dwarves have suffered great losses because of it. Whoever wields it becomes corrupted and turns into a prune after its lost. Even a pure hearted Elijah Wood was barely able to destroy something so powerful yet so small.

The Light Saber

- The Star Wars Movies

P23,000 in Greenhills.  Sheeeeesh!

Probably the most original, innovative and culturallly impactful movie weapon of all time. Despite numerous filed attempts at copying it for the past 30 years. The Ster wars patented light saber continues to be the global favorite among 8 year old boys and 40 year old virgins.

I have left the number 10 slot for you and your comments. Please fell free to give me your own favorite movie weapon. (Im out of ideas, I took some very powerful anibiotics last night.)(Update: spot was filled in by the Oldboy hammer)


green is more environment friendly

well you beat me to the light saber but maybe you should've posted Darth Maul's double saber now that was one kick ass weapon!

Oh and maybe you should mention Bruce Lee's more popular weapon... the Deadly, whirling Nunchucks! imagine 2 sticks joined at the middle with a chain knocking enemies senseless with a simple flick of the wrist!

Last, Optimus Prime's blaster which could hit an enemy from a mile away or Megatron's arm bazooka!

Oh glorious!!!

Chipester: Yup there are too many weapons to choose from, I got to leave those out because my mind was just swirling from the amoxicillin.

jegs: Cool suggestion. Really. My memory must have been blocked from that tooth pulling scene. Indeed a very cool weapon of choice.
