HEATHER’S TOP TEN LEGENDARY MOVIE GUNS

by

With my birthday coming up I began to conceive what exactly would make me the happiest birthday girl of all time.  What I decided I wanted was the M14A Pulse Rifle from Aliens.  I still do, inbox me and I’ll give you my address if you’d like to get it for me.  I’d also like an Ipod, Nathan Fillion as a roommate, a motorcycle, and a lightsabor.  Thanks, and oh enjoy these weapons and stuff!

10. PUMP ACTION SHOTGUN

Terminator 2

The gun itself isn’t particularly remarkable but Arnie makes it’s simplistic doom seem as dangerous as the M60 Machine Gun that Arnie picks up later in the movie.

9. WALTHER PPK


James Bond

Obi-Wan Kenobi described a lightsabor as being a much more dignified weapon, but as far as guns go I think even he would approve of James Bond’s Walther PPK.

8. NOISY CRICKET


Men In Black

Before we learn exactly how bad ass the Noisy Cricket actually is, we get to be amused by Will Smith’s reaction to the little gun given to him by Tommy Lee Jones.

7.  MINIGUN


PREDATOR

Jesse Ventura and his goddamn sexual tyranosaurus may not have time to bleed in this film full of excessive testosterone but he certainly doesn’t hesitate to use this giant minigun.  It’s a good thing the Predator can’t be seen because he takes down half the jungle with it.

6. RAIL GUN


Eraser

Only Arnie could pull off these gigantic ridiculously awesome guns and holding one of each of them in each arm and he tears it up.

5. TELEPHOTO RIFLE


The Jackal

One movie moment where I actually like Jack Black is with Bruce Willis and this awesome weapon of destruction.  I mostly appreciate the fact that you don’t even need to be there to use this awesome gun.

4. DESERT EAGLE 5.0


Snatch

Bullet Tooth Tony’s doesn’t say replica on it.  Enough said.

3. M14A PULSE RIFLE


Aliens

This gun shoot 99 caseless rounds and has a grenade launcher that shoots up to 30 yards.  Hicks gives Ripley the low down on it’s gadgets and she goes after that Queen Xenomorph bitch at the end with it.

2. “LITTLE FRIEND”  M16 WITH M230 GRENADE LAUNCHER

Scarface

Say hello to his little friend.  Tony Montana is one bad, bad dude and in one of the most iconic scenes in film history be brings this dangerous piece of awesomeness out to destroy those that would get in his way.

1. .44 MAGNUM SMITH AND WESSON


Dirty Harry

” I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”   Enough sad.

  • Wonderful list!

    I would have to add Vera from Serenity, as well as the ZF-1 gun from The Fifth Element.

    • I’m doing a top ten weapons for next week and then after that a top ten makeshift weapons………….The ZF1 will likely be on my top ten weapons. :-)

  • Haha, I was gonna say the ZF1, as well. I would also include the air-blast guns from either Minority Report or Chronicles of Riddick (it’s almost the exact same gun, except one of them cocks in a really cool way). I might also suggest Ash’s “Boomstick” (similar to Arnie’s shotgun, I suppose). The 3-barrel shotgun from Undead. There was another I was gonna say, but I forgot what it was.

    • I thought of the Boomstick too, there is another one on next weeks list that has several movies that have referenced the weapon in question as well. I guess personal preferences come into play.

  • I think no. 1 will always be my favorite.

    • I thought of others, but I mean really, even if it’s a popular option among people it really is the first one that comes to mind when people think of movie guns.

  • I love these lists. A lot of thought went into this shit. And your #1 is perfect.

    I’m a little surprised the machine gun leg from Grindhouse didn’t make the list, if only because it’s a leg and it’s a machine gun. It doesn’t just shoot people and zombies. It also helps you walk.

  • Great pick for #1.

    One gun that came to my mind– the blasters used in the original Star Wars films. Those things are iconic in my mind; they’re distinct in appearance and style and pretty prominently displayed/used throughout the whole of the first trilogy.

  • The blasters alone are iconic just for the sound effect it made when fired.

    Also, .44 Magnums, you owe Clint Eastwood millions in free advertising.

  • So many guns, so many fond movie memories.

    I’ve always liked the Lawgiver from Judge Dredd, even if it makes no sense. I’ve also got to give a shout out to Kersey’s friend, Wildey – the .475 Wildey Magnum Bronson uses to stop the Giggler.
