      Shaun doesn't use the cricket bat in the 'Don't Stop Me Now' scene, he uses a pool cue...

      oh dear TF. Shaun used a pool cue for the Queen bludgeoning, the cricket bat was lost in the car. Bill Nighy may still wield it as a zombie... if only to smash the stereo up.

      The lightsaber should be first for me. Iron Man's suit is fantastic and all, but when I was a kid and I'm sure for kids these days too maybe, there's nothing like wanting to be a Jedi and owning a toy lightsaber, recreating the famous scenes and sounds. It's the very essence of movie cool, for a more 'civilised age' ;)

      They do say that he used the pool cue, unless they edited it. I was expecting to see Darth Maul's double ended lightsaber here!

      Surely Clint's Magnum should be higher, the sequal was even named after the gun!

      The Silverballers were the best thing about the Hitman movie. I was so annoyed. Agent 47 is a cold blooded killer, he's not into compassion! Then Hitman; absolution came along..oh dear...

      What a s**t tier list. How on earth did you overlook the arc generator from District 9?

      Not the best of lists. Some weapons were used once, in a solo film, in just one or two scenes. I'd have put Blade's sword on the list (with the nasty surprise for Vampires who try to steal it). And James Bond's Walther. And Darth Maul's double-ended light-sabre...

      I have some suggestions: The pulse rifle was ok for Ripley in Aliens, but it only became iconic when she taped the flame thrower to it. That pulse cannon + flame thrower combo ROCKED! Candyman does not deserve to be on this list. The bad guy's detachable claw in Bruce Lee's, "Enter the Dragon" was iconic. I am not sure Iron Man's suit should be on this list... If so, how about Batman's suit and/or his motorcycle? I do not think the car from "Death Proof" should be on this list. There are tons of vehicles that are way more iconic than this one such as: the Batmobile, the truck from the Jeepers Creepers movies, the X-Men's Blackbird. How can you have this list and not have the two guns that James Bond has carried over the years???? (The Walther PPK, and the Walther P99) Also, the double light saber should totally be on this list. It is the most iconic weapon to come out of EP 1 to 3. Last but not least... What about the Death Star itself????? It was supposed to be the most powerful weapon in the galaxy!!!! :-)

      The Predator's shoulder mounted cannon and the mini gun (as used by Arnold in several movies) as well deserve to be on this list.

      What about all the great double-fisted guns and swords Alice uses in the Resident Evil films? Or the Katana in UltraViolet? An hnorable mention wouldn't have hurt.
