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?

Rocky
(1) No, it wasn't. Spider head-butted Rocky. That was why he kept hitting him after the bell. (2) Yes, it was (3) The combination to his locker. (4) Mickey told Rocky that he fought like a "Goddamn ape." (5) Rocky offered Adrian some donuts and cupcakes when he invited her into his apartment.

(6) He broke his hand while training for the fight. (7) He didn't think it would make for a good fight. (8) He said the same thing. (9) He stopped drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and having sex  No more ooh, Adrians! (10) His nose was broken.


Rocky 2
He thought it would confuse the champ.
Crrrkkkk!!! That's the sound of your jaw breaking, shattered in three places by a vicious left hook. The next blow, a fierce uppercut, hits with the force of a sledgehammer. Fade to black… The next sound you hear is the voice of the referee. "Five, six," he shouts,
"Seven…" Just as you're about to be counted out, the bell rings. It takes almost every ounce of strength you have left, but you manage to pick yourself up and return to your corner before coming out for the final round.  The punishment continues. Another blow breaks two of your ribs. You can taste your own blood as it starts to fill your mouth. In a moment of desperation, you grab your opponent and then hit him below the belt. That wasn't what Spider Rico (Pedro Lovell) did to Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) in the fight that opened the film, was it? And what would follow if your opponent retaliated in the same way that Rocky did?

2. Most of Rocky's jokes were just plain awful. Is that what he was referring to when he remarked, "Inventing (them) ain't so easy"?

3. Rocky usually kept a small piece of paper inside his hat. What did he have trouble remembering?

4. There was no disputing the size of Rocky's heart. The problem, according to Mickey (Burgess Meredith) was the way he fought. What did he compare his style to?

5. Let's see how you do with this scenario. A friend of
In our full-length Rocky quiz (Volume 1), we asked you why Rocky thought other fighters avoided him. The answer was because lefties usually threw off a right-handed fighter's timing. That was one of the few advantages that Rocky had over Creed, so why would Mickey ask him to lead with his other fist? He wouldn't, would he? He did in Rocky 2.
yours has been hiding something from you for the last month and a half. How do you know? Well, for one, he keeps making up same lame excuse every time you ask him why he doesn't invite you back to his place to hang out anymore. It's starting to piss you off. But you don't want to lose him as friend, so you give him his space, hoping it'll pass. Sure enough, later that same week, you receive an invitation via e-mail that reads, "Poker game next Friday night. My place. Will explain everything." When you get there, the only car you see is his, which is kind of odd because you're never the first one at a party. "I've got good news and bad news," he says. "The bad news is, there was never any poker game. The good news is; there's something I want you to see. Walk this way, Igor." That's your first (and only) hint. When he opens the door to his basement, your eyes light up. He's turned it into a state-of-the-art movie theater with stadium seating. "This must have cost you a fortune! Tell me we're watching Rocky. You know that's my favorite movie of all time." What would your friend be referring to if he replied, "maybe next weekend. You didn't bring any donuts or cupcakes"?
6. The Bicentennial Super Battle that pitted Rocky against the heavyweight champion of the world (Carl Weathers) would have never materialized if Creed's original opponent (Mac Lee Green) didn't back out of the fight. What injury did that person sustain?

7. Most fighters would jump at the opportunity for a shot at the title, wouldn't they? Even if they only had five weeks to get into shape. Why did Rocky initially pass on the offer?

8. Ask any fighter what the worst thing about boxing is and they'll probably tell you, "the morning after the fight." How did Rocky answer that question?

9. Nothing quite hits the spot like a glass of raw eggs in the morning. You'd have to drink seven of them if you wanted to beat Rocky in a game of one-upsmanship. Which one of his vices did he give up when he began his training regimen?

10. Something happened to Rocky during his fight with Creed that never happened to him before in the ring. What was it?
John Avildsen, 1976
