Insane Film Theories

Sort by: Showing 16 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
The Theory: Ferris and Sloan aren't real, and are a figment of Cameron's imagination.

Plausibility: A nice theory, considering that Ferris is everything that Cameron wants to be, but it doesn't explain the sub plots (Ferris' sister, Rooney chasing after Ferris) so it doesn't fit.

The Theory: Obi-wan was sleeping with Padme, which is why Anakin was so angry. Also, Obi-wan is Luke and Leia's father.

Plausibility:

Seriously though, it's very unlikely.

The Theory: The brother actually dies at the end.

Plausibility: I was actually surprised that this wasn't the accepted interpretation, however, pretty much everyone believes this, and it is quite clear that this is how the ending turned out.

The Theory: Donny is an old Vietnam buddy of Walter's, and is part of his imagination.

Plausibility: It's been quite a while since I've seen The Big Lebowski, so I'm not sure on how plausible this theory is. Feel free to discuss it in the comments.

The Theory: Christine's "curse" is actually a hallucination brought on by her eating disorder.

Plausibility: This is another one I support. There are many references in the film to Christine having a history of being overweight, and on top of that, all of the torture from demons Christine faces are treated like hallucinations from everyone else.

The Theory: The Ghostbusters die after crossing the streams, and the scene where they are celebrated by the city is the last piece of glory they receive before passing on.

Plausibility: Quite plausible, actually. It doesn't make sense that the Ghostbusters could survive after crossing the streams, as Egon explains earlier in the film, and according to this theory, Ghostbusters 2 was the characters in purgatory, repeating the events of the first movie with certain details changed, explaining why no one seems to remember the Stay Puft Marshmallow man attacking New York in the first movie.

The Theory: The Joker didn't actually kill Batman's parents, and Batman only sees the face of his parent's killer in every criminal he sees.

Plausibility: Very high. This is a common part of Batman's psyche in the comic books, and is a nice addition to Batman's character in the movie. It easily fits in, as the detail that the Joker killed Batman's parents is not essential to the plot.

The Theory: There was a third killer, who was Dewey.

Plausibility: This theory seems plausible at first, as Dewey fits some of the descriptions given on the killer early in the film, and had perfect reason to want to kill everyone. However, his appearances later on in the trilogy make this theory highly unlikely.

The Theory: The second half of the movie happened before the first half.

Plausibility: This was a popular theory when Death Proof was first released. Yeah, I have no idea why either.

The Theory: This film is Stanley Kubrick's way of admitting to faking the moon landings.

Plausibility: This is more of a conspiracy theory than a film theory. As a result, it is completely insane. Most of the cases for this theory are extreme over-analysis of even background props. It's completely ridiculous.

The Theory: The events of Alien 3 were all a dream of Ripley's while she was still in hyper-sleep.

Plausibility: 0%, unfortunately. As much as many of us would want the events of Alien 3 to be fake, Alien: Resurrection confirms that as painful as it is, Alien 3 happened.

The Theory: The events of New Nightmare don't take place in the Real World, but in the "Beautiful Place" Kristen sends Nancy at the end of NOES 3.

Plausibility: A nice theory, that fits in with series continuity better than NOES 2 did, and I support this one.

The Theory: The ending was all imagined by John, while still trapped in captivity.

Plausibility: Considering how the entire mood of the movie changes after John is put into captivity, it is highly possible. Hell, the chamber where he is held confuses the person inside into thinking they are still conscious, when they are actually in a coma.

The Theory: Zion is part of the Matrix.

Plausibility: This theory does eliminate one of the biggest plot holes in the third instalment, but I believe it to just be wishful thinking on the fans part to make Revolutions better than it was.

The Theory: The events of the movie were imagined by Indy as he died in a fridge.

Plausibility: Like the Matrix, this is simply wishful thinking on the part of haters of Indy 4.

A list of theories that people carry about many popular films. Some are insane, some are possible, and none make a lot of sense.
