  EPIC BATTLES, CONQUERORS AND KINGS
Gladiator
Ridley Scott, 2000
.......................................................................................................................................
Mind if we push our way through towards the frontline? It's not to join the legion of Roman soldiers at Maximus' (Russell Crowe) command. Heck no, it's just to report on who's wearing what before they're drenched in blood. There were two, nearly identical symbols on the breastplate that Maximus wore. Describe what they were, how they differed from one another and what they represented.

Stranger Things
(1) The creature that was contained to the Hawkins National Laboratory and the dice that rolled off the table during the boys' game of Dungeons and Dragons (2) Mike (Finn Wolfhard) talked Eleven out of getting undressed in front of his friends (3) Will was able to spell out different words by lighting up the letters she drew on the wall. (4) Its talons and tongue

(5) Paper plate (6) If he heard and followed the sound of his brother's voice, he may have been the one who was pulled out of the darkness after Nancy stepped on that branch if the monster turned its attention towards her. You win some, you lose some, kids. (7) Her nosebleeds
(8) Set the mo'fo's ass ablaze.

Gladiator
The symbols represented the horses he owned, Argento and Scarto. One faced east, the other west.
 
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
..................................
The Vanishing of Will Byers
1. Where's Wildo (Noah Schnapp)? That's the question everyone was asking when the series first episode ended. What was lost prior to his disappearance?
The Weirdo on Maple Street
2. Stranger things, weirder kids. That opportunity that presented itself to the boys at the Wheeler residence almost never happens. When it does, it's even rarer that someone will pass on it. We sure as hell wouldn't if we had a face like a frog. What are we referring to?

Holly, Jolly
3. One blink for yes, two for no. Got it? Joyce (Winona Ryder) figured it out. How did a string of Christmas lights enable her to communicate with her missing son?

The Body
4. Ma'am, calm down and tell us again what's after you. Something almost human that isn't with no face? I guess we'll know it when we see it. Which of the creature's extremities wasn't mentioned when Joyce described it to the sheriff (David Harbour); its

long arms, talons or tongue?

The Flea and the Acrobat
5. Recalculating, again. Maybe you can tell us how to get to the Upside Down. According to Mr. Clarke (Randy Havens), it involved tearing a hole in time and space. Easy enough, right? Sure, if time and space were made out of a REAPP TALEP. Unscramble the underlined words.

The Monster
6. If Nancy (Natalia Dyer) could find her way out of the darkness, why couldn't Will? The answer, of course, was because he was cocooned and barely alive, but suppose he wasn't and was in the wrong place (The Upside Down) at the right time (not far from where the monster was when Nancy stepped on that branch). That would have been his lucky break, wouldn't it? So to speak.
The Bathtub
7. Another one, El (Millie Bobby Brown)? That's not good, but at least we know you're giving it your all. Try it again, this time with a little less energy. And if it happens again, well, we might have call in a Jedi Master to teach you the ways of the Force. Stop then, will they. They being what?

The Upside Down
8. Wait for what to move? The creature? No, the yo-yo, bro. Then what? Good plan, if you've got a yo-yo, the balls, a bear trap and some good home owner's insurance to make it happen.
