Build a business case: developing custom apps

A Jedi knight's lightsaber has been voted the top movie weapon, pipping Dirty Harry's Magnum .44 to the post in a 20th Century Fox poll of 2,000 film buffs.

The Star Wars illuminated sword heads a mixed bag of offensive items, including the Hattori Hanzo katana from Kill Bill, Oddjob's unfriendly bowler hat* and Indy's bullwhip.

The full roll of honour is:

  1. Lightsaber (Star Wars)
  2. 44. Magnum (Dirty Harry)
  3. Bullwhip (Indiana Jones)
  4. Samurai sword (Kill Bill)
  5. Chainsaw (Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
  6. Golden Gun (The Man With The Golden Gun)
  7. Bow and arrow (Robin Hood)
  8. Machine gun (Scarface)
  9. The Death Star (Star Wars)
  10. Bowler hat (Goldfinger)

*A collector of Bond memorabilia stumped up a cool $33,600 for the famous hat of death back in 2006, apparently with a view to displaying it in a pop culture museum in Florida. ®
