the coolest film weapon of all time

as I was leaving "Matrix Revolutions" the other night, mentally adding the Wachowski
Brothers' names to the "Filmakers Who Betrayed My Faith" list (current
members are Lucas and Chris Carter), I suddenely had a realization that made
me stop and re-consider: Lucas invented the lightsabre in 1977. Has anyone invented
a cooler film weapon since? And I think the next coolest weapons are probably the
force push and the deathstar and... Lucas also invented them. Does he deserve my wrath?
Can anyone suggest a cooler weapon before or since the lightsabre?

    Does computer games count? Final Fantasy VIII had a cool weapon, a gunblade. It’s like a sword with a gun barrel & trigger attached to it. I think that’s pretty cool.

    uh, wouldn’t that be called a bayonet??

    Well, yah, but ‘Gunblade’ sounds so much cooler! And looks cooler. We’re not just talking a gun with a puny little knife tied on, we’re talking one of those huge, Japanese Manga-like mega swords, with a gun! Awwwwwesome!
