The 10 Most Mind-Blowing Movie Fan Theories

08 April 2013 | Features, Other Lists | by David Zou

In movies, there is always room for imagination and research, that’s where most fan theories come from.

Some of them are entertaining, some are incredibly crazy, some are totally BS, and some make tremendous sense.

Since the invention of movies, thousands of fan theories have been created, here we selected 10 movie fan theories that sound crazy enough but get backed up by solid evidence.

 

10. The Rock

The Rock

The Fan Theory: Sean Connery’s character Mason is actually James Bond (more on him later). Caught spying in America, he has spent the rest of his life banged up in various prisons…

The Proof: As FBI Director Womack later professes, “This man does not exist not in the United States or Great Britain.” That’s because James Bond isn’t a person… it’s only a code name!

 

9. Back To The Future

The Fan Theory: Doctor Brown is attempting to commit suicide when he tests out the DeLorean. But it turns out that not only does he invent time travel, but he realizes life is worth living after all.

The Proof: He states that all his previous experiments have been total failures, then proceeds to stand directly in front of the speeding car, guaranteeing his own death if his latest product works fine.

    James Bond is the same character no matter who plays him….

    In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (6th film), Lazenby plays Bond and gets married. Then in Diamonds Are Forever (7th film), Connery returns as Bond with an opening scene which is directly influenced by Lazenby’s marriage. There is even mention of this marriage throughout the series, most notably in Licence to Kill (15th film), in which Bond is played by Timothy Dalton.

    Therefore two of these theories should be removed.

    also at the end of skyfall it is made clear that james bond isn’t a code name rather his actual name(we see on his fathers tomb the name andrew bond)

    If you got that Bond was a codename out of Skyfall, you obviously didn’t see his parent’s grave outside of the church. It says ANDREW BOND and MARIE DELACROUIX BOND. They died in a climbing accident when Bond was a boy, hence him locking himself away in the priest hole when Kincaid told him.

    ugh…another shining theory. Leon Vitali, an aide to Kubrick, has pretty much debunked every single shining conspiracy. maybe you should have looked him up before you made it your #2

    What about Captain Picard never left the Nexus in Star Trek: Generations, so Star Trek: First Contact, Insurrection and Nemisis are only his Nexus Fantasies.

    Proof: In First Contact he has his revenge on the Borg. In Insurrection he has a a love affair with an Ba’ku woman. And in Nemisis he could drive the dune buggy.
    And why should it be real the Kirk and Picard left the Nexus just by wishing. Wasn’t the fact, that nothing is real in the Nexus and any action has no consequences, Picard’s argument to persuade Kirk to come with him. So why should be the wish out of the Nexus more real than Kirk’s Cabin in the mountains? But never mind: the question, what is reality, is a very old issue for epistemology.

    Since others have mentioned the idiocy of the James Bond theory, let’s move on to Pulp Fiction. The glow was added late, basically as an afterthought, and has nothing to do with the script. So no.

    The Inception one isn’t bad in so far as Cobb must have had a totem before he started carrying his wife’s, and that some fanboys have a problem accepting ambiguity. All you really need to understand to grasp Inception’s ending is 1) Home is where Cobb can see his children’s faces. 2) Those children, not his memories, are what he really has left of his wife, They are the best of Cobb + Mal. 3) What is meant by the expression being able to look at yourself in the mirror.

    People who believe the James bond theory is right are stupid as in skyfall q says to bond did you expect an exploding pen which was in an earlier film
