Why I Love Awesome Movie Weapons! (Part 2)

Sorry for being MIA lately. Here is part 2 of my previous Post!

The Big Baby- Hellboy II: The Golden army
This awesome six-barreled monstrosity fires off small rockets and produces awesome results. Wielded by the horned Ron Pearlman, this gun stole the show in the film. Remember, you don’t want to wake Baby.

Smart Disc- Predator 2
This awesomely deadly and lethal weapon is probably Predator’s greatest weapon. The disc cuts through everything in its path and convieniently comes back to its owner.

Proton Pack- Ghostbusters
Also known as a positron collider, the proton pack is the weapon of choice for the Ghostbusters.  Designed by Dr. Egon Spengler, the proton pack is used to incapacitate ghosts, holding them in place long enough to be captured by a ghost trap.  Wielding these powerful weapons is risky, as the last thing you want to do is cross the streams: “Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.” Awesome!

Wolverine’s Claws- X-Men Movies
Wolverine’s healing factor made him the prime candidate for a procedure that involved grafting adamantium to his skeleton and implanting retractable adamantium claws.  Capable of cutting through anything, Wolverine’s claws can make mincemeat out of an enemy in just a matter of seconds. The coolest X-Men has the coolest weapons.

Iron Man-Iron Man
Need I say more.

Cattle Gun- No Country For Old Men
This post was slightly inspired by this weapon. Javier Bardem was frightening as Anton Chigurh who used a lethal cattle gun to defeat his enemies. The shockingly awesome sound of this air pressure gun going off startled all who saw this film. Anton’s rampage with this unconventional weapon definitely earns a place on this list.

Freedom- Braveheart
Arguably the most famous sword ever, this beauty was wielded by William Wallace in his fight against the English. Not only was this Scottish long blade a powerful and feared weapon, the scene of it stuck in the ground wavering as the Scotts went to war is one of the most iconic and epic movie moments ever. FREEEDOMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
