This is a cool exhibition of sorts that focuses very specifically on guns wielded by folks in the movies and it looks fantastic — there are Star Trek phasers, the Dirty Harry Magnum, Han Solo's Blaster. These are incredible photograph's (I think) focusing on some of the most enduring weapons in popular culture. I think someone should do this, except with video game weapons.
I'm thinking Doom's BFG, the Klobb from Goldeneye, Halo's Pistol — stuff like that. In first person shooters we can spend hours looking at a gun just bobbing in the periphery like a disembodied limb. Shouldn't we be fetishising weapons in this manner as well?
Actually, when you put it like that, this whole thing is a little bit weird.
But it's still cool. Just admit it.
