Which movie weapon...

... would you want in a fight? And no, I won't tell you who your opponent is before the battle. Go.

Just some examples. Don't feel like you have to wield them.

My heart wants Bond's Walther PPK, but I'm going for a phaser.

NATHANIEL R said...

Ooh the bond films do have good gadgets. I was going to choose batman's utility belt but that's kind of cheating since that's it's own acre-wide storage unit of weaponry.

schwartz ring

Angie said...

Ohhh Zorg's thing for sure. I wouldn't mind a noisy cricket either.

Kurtis O said...

No contest. Lt. Ellen Ripley's pulse rifle/flame-thrower/grenade-launcher combo from the climax of "Aliens." I used to beef up toy rifles with black tubes and such, climb under chairs, and pretend I was escaping through an air duct. I WAS Ripley.

sars said...

I'd probably lose the battle, but I'd use Ripley's power loader exo-suit. I'm an old man and I like the nostalgia. Even if it results in my death.

sars said...

Kurtis O....weird!

Hunter said...

Machine gun for a leg.

Comentator said...

Dirty Harry's Magnum

In practice, an AK-47, Pacino's rifle at the end of Scarface, or the pretty H&K featured in Die Hard. Fantasy land, phaser...

NATHANIEL R said...

Hunter -- but that means you'd have no real leg!? r u ready to make that sacrifice?

Seeking Amy said...

Bowling pin from There Will Be Blood. With Eli's blood on it.

sars said...

Amy, maybe I can be your sidekick if I can use Janeane Garofalo's bowling ball from Mystery Men.

Paul Outlaw said...

A magic wand...

Volvagia said...

C'mon, people. Nothing beats Ash Williams' hammerspace shotgun.

NATHANIEL R said...

seeking amy -- sick!

Iggy said...

Lightsaber is too old-fashioned? Maybe Ewan McGregor's lightsaber? That sounded too porn-y. I think I'll go with Indiana Jones' whip, I'd love to learn how to use it to fetch things.

Andrew R. said...

A .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, capable of blowing your head clean off.

Noecitos said...

Paulette's Bonifante "Bend and Snap", no doubt...

JA said...

A Hattori Hanzo sword, fo sho.

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

NATHANIEL R said...

noecitos ... that is a powerful weapon.

although... good luck because what if your enemy is like, nonhuman?

Andrew R. said...

Of course, it depends who I'm fighting. If it's the aliens from Signs, then I want a glass of water.

Sarah said...

Bilbo's sword "Sting," which he later bequethed to Frodo in "The Fellowship of the Ring."

rorydean said...

Yeah, it would have to be Zorg's thing, second that @Angie. I've seen that movie a dozen times plus but can't recall the name off the top of my head. Maybe the Full Sail has something to do with it. I mean the weapon pretty much does it all and if it doesn't, what's to worry, you can always shoot a net at em!

Ruth said...

Aragorn's sword Anduril...just cause I love LoTR...what about Harry Potter's wand though?

Henry said...

One of Hellboy's weapons. That three-barreled gun, maybe.

A lightsaber's cool, though.

badmofo said...

Maybe this doesn't count, but I'd love to be the T-1000 from T2. I'd just have to stay away from molten lava...

Sebastian Gutierrez said...

I want that chain-blade thing from Ninja Assassin. Movie sucked, but that thing was vicious!!!

Carl said...

Gort. As long as Patricia Neal stays away, Gort is invincible.

chris na Taraja said...

It's sort of not a weapon, but can I use Dr. hannibal Lector on a chain, of course I'll have to have a cattle prod too so he doesn't attack me.

But if I had to choose a weapon, hmmm let me see, I like that bowler hat from Goldfinger that is razor sharp all around. That's fun.

Derreck said...

Tom Hardy's big gun from Inception. Dream a little bigger, darling.

or Elecktra's sais from Daredevil/Elektra. They are kind of badass when you work them right.

or Leon from the Professional. That's right. I'm counting him as a weapon.

Red said...

Anduril from Lord of the Rings.

Not only is it sword that took down friggin Sauron, but you also control an unbeatable army with it.

jbaker475 said...

So many great ones to choose from, but I've got to go with Chigurh's souped-up shotgun. That thing scared the hell out of me.

David Coley said...

Depending on what side of the debate you fall on as to whether it's a weapon or not, the Iron Man suit would be cool.

Dino said...

I don't need a weapon, I've got my "Mitts"... Ram Jam Baby!

bbats said...

Moonraker Lazer gun.

Anonymous said...

My sexuality!

Mysjkin said...

I would take the cross-shotgun from From Dusk Till Dawn, load it up with the "Liquid sunlight"-ammo from Underworld and go searching for Edward Cullen.

Jim Wilson said...

Maynard's katana from Pulp Fiction.

Is it just me or would Wolverine's claws be kind of painful to have. I know the metal is unbreakable but there's gotta be some strain against the skin.

Will said...

Which weapon to fight an opponent?
Does Rogue's "death touch" count as a weapon? If not, I'll choose a wand so I can simply Avada Kedavra him and WHAM!

Ryan said...

yeah, Ripley's flame-thrower was pretty kick ass. also a big fan of Freddy Kruger's classic finger-knifes glove from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

NATHANIEL R said...

Will -- you have no mercy! I didn't say it was to the death. ;)

Ryan -- remind us not to fall asleep around you.
