  SHOOT FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER
Lethal Weapon
Richard Donner, 1987
.......................................................................................................................................
In the real world, the murder of any child is an unforgivable sin. We don't know if Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) ever forgave himself for the death of Sean Archer's 4-year-old son (Myles Jeffrey), but this much is certain - the bullet was meant for someone else.
Hey, kid. You see that guy in the Santa Claus outfit? Those aren't gifts he's giving away. It's snow. How do we know? You'll just have to take our word for it." If the dealers who tried to sell Riggs (Mel Gibson) $100,000 worth of cocaine in Lethal Weapon were true to their word, they would have thrown this in, at no additional cost. But we all know how that deal ended, don't we?

Lethal Weapon
The best Christmas tree on the lot.
 
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?

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
Who was the intended target?

2. Three blind mice… see how they run. If Castor wanted to be clever, he could have tipped someone off with that clue. How would it have related to the bomb that was planted in the Los Angeles Convention Center?

3. Have you ever purchased a bootleg copy of a film? Well, if you have, you probably got exactly what you paid for. Let's say some prankster inserted a scene from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective into this film. Where would you find it if the scene in question included the phrase, "Like a glove!"?

4. No one would take you seriously if you asked for a ga-zillion dollars. A ransom that's too low could also be interpreted as a joke. Just ask Dr. Evil. How much money did Castor's brother (Alessandro Nivola) try to extort from the F.B.I.?
..................................
5. Have you ever wished you were an only child? Pollux did, on a number of occasions. What annoyed him the most?

6. Archer thought he had the upper hand on Castor, even when he was down to his last bullet. Do you remember why?

7. The F.B.I. managed to capture Castor alive, but it wasn't easy (is it ever?). Let's give credit where credit is due. Was he outsmarted or could one say that he had no one but himself to blame?

8. Promises are made to be broken. A couple got put on hold when Archer discovered that Castor was still alive. One was the desk job he said he'd apply for. What else got sidetracked?

9. Guilty by association? You tell us. What was Sasha's (Gina Gershon) connection to Castor Troy?
10. What do Con Air and The Rock have in common, apart from being Nicolas Cage movies? Correctional institutions, right? Well, add another one to the list. The name of the prison in this film was a bit odd, so we'll give you a clue. It begins with the first two letters of a sound that's often heard when someone is stumped - errrrr.

11. Inmates talk amongst themselves all the time, so the idea of putting an undercover agent in someone's cell would probably work, but not in Pollux's case. Tell us why.

12. You know what a respectable doctor would never do? What Dr. Miller did when she showed Archer Castor's comatose body.
John Woo, 1997
