  EPIC BATTLES, CONQUERORS AND KINGS
Spartacus
Stanley Kubrick, 1960
.......................................................................................................................................
To stop Spartacus' (Kirk Douglas) army from reaching Rome, two things needed to be done immediately. The first, according to Gracchus (Charles Laughton), was making Julius Caesar (John Gavin) the permanent commander of the garrison. He also suggested sending two legions to the city of Metapontum. Crassus (Laurence Olivier) agreed to lead those legions, but not before something was done for him. What did he want, apart from being elected First Consul of Rome?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
(1) Sparrow seemed to get out of trouble as easily as he got into it so it's doubtful he would have drowned, but if the mast on his sinking boat was any lower, or if he was any further out at sea when it started to take on water, he would have had to swim for shore. AArrggh! (2) He didn't walk away with anything. The shillings were a fee. One for tieing up his boat (which seemed unreasonable considering it was at the bottom of the harbor) and two more for letting him enter the port without a name for his registry. (3) Fainting (4) Jack's sparrow tattoo and the pirate brand on his arm.

(5) The compass he owned. It didn't point north. (6) Only those who lifted the medallion directly from the chest was cursed. So you'd be if that's where you got it from, but we wouldn't. Keep the change? Thanks! (7) A fellow pirate, otherwise the code, which was more or less guidelines than actual rules, didn't apply. (8) They were walking underwater with a rowboat over their heads. Were that small pocket of air came from is anyone's guess. The entire boat should have flooded. (9) The Dauntless couldn't catch up to the Interceptor, which was a faster ship to begin with, after he disabled the rudder chain. (10) "That," Will said, "Was for the smell."

Spartacus
He also wanted command of all the legions of Italy, and the abolition of senatorial authority over the courts.
 
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!

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
..................................
All questions and quizzes written by Philip Cerreta unless otherwise noted
Sparrow (Johnny Depp), we hardly knew ya when your character was introduced to thee, but well enough to know that wasn't where you or any other pirate wanted to be. Any lower or further out and you would have been sleeping with the fishies, at the bottom of the sea.
Gore Verbinski, 2003
As luck would have it, he arrived in Port Royal just in time. Explain.

2. "That's gonna cost ya another shilling, Mr. Smith." "Here's three. No more questions." What did Jack buy, sell or trade with the first person he met in Port Royal?

3. Take a deep breath. Deeper. Ready? Go, off the rampart and into the water below. You know why that happened. People who aren't use to wearing corsets and are prone to AIIFGNNT shouldn't stand so close to ledges. Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) learned that the hard way. Unscramble the underlined word.

4. Not acknowledging Jack's rank was one way to get under his skin. If he really was that bothered by it, maybe he should have had the word tattooed onto his forehead. What identifiable marks were on Mr., sorry, Captain Sparrow body?
5. Ahoy and aghast, is it he? What is it this time? What could it be? Maybe it's a lost treasure he's after that's junk to you and me. If that's the case, we know exactly what it is. Look again and you'll see. What personal belonging of Jack's might those words apply to?

6. Suppose you used one of those nifty gold medallions to buy one of our movie quiz books, directly from us. Would either one of us be cursed? Probably not. The reason why we say probably is because _________ .

7. Polly wants a parley? That's what Elizabeth asked for when she was kidnapped by Pintel (Lee Arenberg) and Ragetti (Mackenzie Crook), a code that basically stated that a pirate had to take an adversary to his or her captain, if requested, as long as the adversary was what?

8. "This is either madness or brilliance." "It's remarkable how
often those two traits coincide." What were Jack and Jill, we mean Will (Orlando Bloom), doing when those words were spoken?

9. If you understood half of what came out of Jack's rum hole, this one shouldn't be too difficult. How did a single pirate manage to steal an entire ship from the British navy?

10. If a woman throws a bucket of cold water on a man to wake his ass up and then another after he's already awake, he had to have done something to piss her off. It happened to Gibbs (Kevin McNally). What did he do to deserve that?
