  EPIC BATTLES, CONQUERORS AND KINGS
Troy
Wolfgang Petersen, 2004
.......................................................................................................................................
Each year, hundreds of Civil War enthusiasts get together to re-enact the Battle of Gettysburg. The battle we're staging is the last stand of the 300. Tell us what you do when you hear the words "Tuck tail!"
Unlike the men he fought beside, Achilles (Brad Pitt) had a choice. He could have refused to fight for the Greek army to spite Agamemnon (Brian Cox), but the reward was too great. He knew that a victory against the Trojans would secure his place in history. What he didn't know is that he would be remembered as the greatest warrior who ever lived. What was his reason for not wanting to fight Hector (Eric Bana) in the Temple of Apollo?

(13) You get down on the ground in a kneeling position and cover your body with your shield. (14) All of Sparta would have gone to war. "Pray they're that stupid," he said. "Pray we're that lucky." (15) He was speared in the chest. (16) He put his hands on his shoulders.

(17) It was tossed aside. (18) A single spear to the head. (19) They exploited the creatures' weakness (their clumsiness) and used the condition of battlefield to their advantage. (20) The captain was speared through the abdomen and then stabbed multiple times.

He thought they were alone. No one would have seen him fall.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

14. Suppose Leonidas had been assassinated during his first meeting with Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). That would have worked in the Spartans favor. Tell us why.

15. Let's backtrack for a moment to the chapter entitled Meeting Xerxes. A dying, Persian soldier was put out of his misery after Leonidas remarked, "There's no reason (why) we can't be civil, is there?" How was he killed?

16. Turning your back on an emperor is never a good idea, especially when that emperor is your adversary. What did Xerxes do when Leonidas turned away?

17. One would think a spear in the eye would be enough to take down any creature, even a Uber Immortal (Robert Maillet). What happened to the blade that severed his bicep?
18. Picture this scenario: The year is 483 B.C. Your servitude to King Xerxes includes capturing the most savage of beasts for his army. On this particular day, you almost wish you were on the front lines. Three slaves have been gored to death by a raging rhinoceros, another, trampled underfoot and now, the creature has set its sights on you. Armed only with a spear, the only chance you have is to hit the beast directly between the eyes, and pray that the wound is deep enough. What brought down the rhinoceros that was unleashed upon the Spartans?

19. Standing one's ground against a single, charging rhino is one thing, doing the same against a herd of stampeding elephants, the likes of which you've never seen, is quite another. How did the Spartans win that battle?
20. The last of the 300 were slain by arrows, save for one. What fate befell that individual?
