Wouldn't you want to remain as inconspicuous as possible if you were part of a resistance? The symbol that Marcus (Sam Worthington) was wearing the day he met Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) was easy enough to spot. Do you remember what it was and why Kyle
Want to sell us on an upgrade over the T-800 cyborg we currently own? Let's see one catch a bullet with its teeth. That was how Kate (Claire Danes) discovered that the T-850 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was a cybernetic organism. How did the viewer discover that the T-X (Kristanna Loken) could alter its appearance at will?

Terminator: Salvation
(1) Marcus had on a red armband. Kyle felt like he hadn't earned the right to wear one yet. (2) His name was on a "Kill List." Intel believed that he, and everyone else on it would be dead by week's end. (3) It was too slow to follow the tow truck that was commandeered so it dispatched the moto-terminators. (4) A knife to the motor cortex (which was partially exposed at the back of the neck) would do the trick.
(5) A ship of some sort or a helicopter, unless the sub was docked.

(6) His head and his heart (7) D-I-S-A-S-S-E-M-B-L-E-D (8) "What should I tell your men when they found out you're gone?"
(9) The hidden signal was a trick. (10) Marcus' cybernetic hand.


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
She enlarged her breasts when she was pulled over for speeding. Forget the T-850, we'll take one of those.
 
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

wasn't wearing one, himself? It wasn't for the reason you might think.

2. Intel knew that the machines used shortwave transmitters to communicate with one another. They also discovered a hidden signal that allowed for direct control of the units under the primary channel. But would it work in the field? Connor (Christian Bale) had only four days to find out. Do you remember why?

3. Think the T800s were unstoppable? Try taking down one of the Harvesters. The behemoth that Kyle encountered in the desert survived an explosion that would have vaporized most anyone else. The inferno did slow it down, but only for a moment. So why did it abandon its pursuit?

4. Every creature has an Achilles heel and every machine has an off switch. The T600s were no exception. You don't have to
show us how to shut one down, just disorient it long enough for us to get away.

5. Come with us if you want to live. Where are we taking you? You'll see. Just sit tight and keep your eyes open. We'll say this much - the place is nowhere near the Resistance's Command Headquarters. To get there… and back, we'd need this.

6. When Indy (Harrison Ford) was asked which part of his body didn't hurt in Raiders of the Lost Ark, he pointed to his elbow, a spot on his forehead, his right eye and then his lips. Kyle did the same thing… sort of, when he stressed the importance of staying alive. Show us what he pointed to.

7. Marcus would have been "terminated" if it weren't for Blair's (Moon Bloodgood) intervention. But that wasn't the word that Kate (Bryce Dallas Howard) used. Another word was substituted. Spell it out for us.
8. Here's your chance to ask us a question. Just remember, you're playing by our rules so we already know the answer - "I'll be back."

9. What was Dr. Kogan (Helena Bonham Carter) referring to when she told Marcus that "It (would) end the war"? And it would be the resistance that would be terminated. "Not Skynet."

10. Let's backtrack to the chapter entitled On the Same Side. Would Blair have put her trust in Marcus if she had known that he was an infiltration unit from the outset? Maybe, maybe not. There's only one way to find out - show her what the viewer saw in the film's closing sequence.
