So, since it's Christmas, and 'tis the season and all that, I'm going to list here the seven movie weapons I wouldn't mind having. Before you recoil in horror from your computer and decide that I'm a loon, hear me out. When I was a kid, we always wanted the hottest movie toy around, and that doesn't seem to have changed at all today. A walk down a toy aisle in any store these days will show you items like Jack Sparrow's Cutlass or a self-inflating Superman suit that lets any kid become a Child of Steel. you see, a really good movie weapon makes you want it. When you see a bad guy or a good guy wielding a plain old gun or a knife on screen, you're like, "Eh, big deal." However, if it's a knife that can cut through stone, or a gun that shoot bullets into the past, then you tend to say, "Holy cow! I want one of those!"

These are seven weapons that made me do just that. Granted, some of them are a bit silly, and some are a bit over the top, but the main point is that none of them exist ... yet. I've found myself wishing I had one at different times, usually while dealing with extremely annoying things like the line at the DMV, people who talk too loudly on cell phones, or people who like to cut you off on the freeway in Southern California. So, these are some of the items that would be in my own private arsenal. What do you want in yours?
