Since everyone watching the film “Click” inevitably starts fantasizing about a part of their own lives they’d love to relive (or skip past), we’ll take this opportunity to rewind to our 13 favorite movie gadgets.
1 – Lightsabers – Star Wars
An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age.” Whether your particular brand comes in badass red, noble hero blue, or Samuel L. Jedi purple, the lightsaber is such an intimidator, it can even make a two-foot Muppet seem tough. You don’t even have to use it, just flick it on and its unmistakable hum clearly says: “Somebody’s walking out of here without a limb.”
2 – Neuralizer – Men in Black
The neuralizer was a tool used by the Men in Black in both films. This alien technology was borrowed by the MIB as K suggested in the first movie:
“This is a gift from some friends from out of town.”
The uses of eliminating someone’s memories are endless, especially is you are prone to screwing up a lot.
3 – Copter Hat – Inspector Gadget
How many times did you watch Inspector Gadget and wished you could have at least one of his innovative gadgets to show off to your mates?
The power of flight, man! Not to mention the fashion of a sweet fedora.
4 – Ultimate Swiss Army Knife – Get Smart
Get Smart is loaded with new gadgets, but this wild take on the famous utility knife tops them all
Contains all the same items of your standard Swiss Army Knife but also includes a blowgun, crossbow and blowtorch.
5 – Remote Control – Click
The remote control with unending possibilities.
In “Click,” Adam Sandler plays Michael Newman, an overworked architect who discovers a truly universal remote, one that allows him to pause, fast-forward, mute and rewind real life
6 – Utility Belt – Batman
Reason You Wish You Had It? 14 reasons to be exact. 2-way Radio, Batarangs, Infra-red Flashlight, Smoke Capsules, Fingerprint Kit, Miniature Camera, Lockpick Tools, Tear Gas Pellets, Micro-Processor Power Source, Micro-Cassete Recorder, Batline, Laser Torch, Plastic Explosive Grenades and a Rebreathing Apparatus.
7 – Green Lantern Ring
A power ring is a weapon in the DC Universe, most notably used by the Green Lantern Corps. These rings are considered to be the most powerful weapons in the DC Universe, as its effects are limited only by the imagination and willpower of its wielder
Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates.
Reason You Wish You Had It? Is so freaking cool!!
8 – Hover Board – Back to the Future
Ever since you were a kid you’ve wanted something like this and probably even heard
rumors that they were coming out some day, only to be crushed again when you find out the truth.
9 – James Bond’s Aston Martin
The Aston Martin was first introduced in Goldfinger with machine guns, a back shield, an oil slick, rotating license plates and tire slashers. Different models made appearances in Thunderball, The Living Daylights, Die Another Day and Casino Royale
.Each model had cool add-ons like a cloaking shield, laser weapons and even a defibrillator. God, I want one of those cars
10 – Jack Bauer’s PDA – 24
Like James Bond’s mobile phone from Tomorrow Never Dies, Jack Bauer’s PDA could do almost anything. Satellite photos or building schematics? No problem! Encrypted messages from terrorists? Piece of cake! As long as Chloe was feeding him the information, there wasn’t anything that his PDA couldn’t do.
11 – The Shoe Phone – Get Smart
Okay, I know it’s a little odd to put a clunky shoe phone on the list. However, the shoe phone was from the 60s, and it was actually pretty cool… as well as funny.
12 – The Watches – Spy Kids
Carmen and Juni Cortez had a ton of cool gadgets as the littlest secret agents in the biz. But it was their multifunctional watch that was their coolest toy. If only it told time.
13 – Freddy’s Glove – A Nightmare on Elm Street
One Two, Freddy’s Comin’ For You…Three Four, Better Lock The Door..’ We all know the rhyme, and for a few years, thanks to the industry inundating the screens with Freddy and his nightmares, we were all pretty well frightened, too. Freddy Krueger was a horribly disfigured and burnt walking cliche who also happened to own a killer metal glove featuring four fingers of razor sharp blades. He haunted the sleeping thoughts of the younger crowd ’surviving’ on Elm Street, and more often then not, disposed of them in any number of gory and vicious ways. But, most frequently, he employed the use of his ‘fist of fury’. Very sharp.
