You may think you know everything about hit movies and TV shows, but when fans dig for more, amazing new details emerge.
"Scooby Doo takes place in an economic depression. This is why there are so many run down amusement parks and mills, all the businesses are closed. This is also why so many desperate people are pulling ghost-related insurance scams, AND why the kids seem to be traveling the country with no jobs or even homes other than the van."
"There's general confusion among fans in understanding how after years of seeing that there are real monsters, Scully would still scoff at the idea of vampires. It doesn't make sense, unless she is often proven correct. However, in every season of the X Files, there were two or three cases where there was a perfectly logical explanation and Scully was totally right. Scully's first instinct is to always look for the simplest and most supported explanation. She's always reminding Mulder to not let his desire to find something supernatural cloud his reasoning and causing him to ignore other explanations. At the same time, when she does find evidence of something supernatural, she accepts it."
"If you listen closely during the movie, the “accent” Samuel L. Jackson used in Kingsman is in reality his actual speaking voice. Everything else is acting."
"Peter Pan was actually an insane villain and Captain Hook was the hero of the Lost Boys who survived Peter's leadership and became adults. Peter Pan abducted the Lost Boys, but Hook escaped and formed a pirate crew to try and stop Pan. In the books, Peter Pan forgets that the Lost Boys need real food and can't subsist off of imagination alone, but Peter can eat imaginary things and never die. When angered, Peter became a homicidal maniac and the Lost Boys would put on a show to calm him even if they were very hungry. Lastly, when the Lost Boys grew out of their clothing, it signaled that they were about to become adults and so Peter would kill them unless they were able to escape and join the only resistance against him—the Pirates."
"Mr. Bean was an alien in the run of the original series. The opening shows him beamed down to Earth from a ray of light (a spaceship) and it really does help explain his eccentric and bizarre behaviour. The show seems to revolve around him learning about humanity and trying to integrate without any real idea as to how to go about it. I find that it adds an interesting layer of humour to an already very funny series. In fact, I believe in the animated series they have him encounter aliens who look similar to him."
"The Chamber of Secrets was actually Salazar Slytherin's safe room for all the students in case the school was attacked and the basilisk was their protection, but the legend was twisted over the centuries after his falling out with the other Hogwarts founders and so the chamber was misused by bigots like Tom Riddle."
"At the end of The Thing, MacReady has gasoline in a whiskey bottle. He had made all the bottles into Molotov cocktails. He knew he was going to die with the Thing, or likely from it, so there was no reason for him to save an entire bottle of whiskey on his person when it could have been another weapon. At the end, he offers the bottle to Childs, who drinks it as if nothing was wrong. The Thing wouldn't know what whiskey tastes like, and reveals Childs as being replaced. There's a DISTINCT beat of ominous music that starts the second Childs takes a swig off that bottle. Then they show MacReady, who smirks and lets out a knowing chuckle as if to say "I knew it, you dick."
"In Back to the Future II, Marty originally died while being chased my Biff in the tunnel. This would explain Doc's perfect timing when he showed up and saved him. Marty was run over and Doc traveled back to prevent it."
"In House of Cards, Frank isn't breaking the fourth wall. He's writing a book about his presidency. This would explain why each episode is called a chapter. He's been impeached and imprisoned. Since his presidency was to be his legacy, it's become tarnished and now he intends the book to be a legacy."
"Sean Connery's character in "The Rock" (John Mason) is actually James Bond who was captured in the 60's/early 70's."
Ron Weasley is actually a seer and doesn't know it. A lot of the things he blurts out or makes up for his divination classes end up happening. In Prisoner Of Askaban he makes two tea leaf predictions before Trelawney takes his cup away and sees the Grim: Harry will work for the ministry of magic (he becomes an Auror) and second, "a windfall, unexpected gold" which can be either himself getting the leprechaun gold at the world cup or Harry winning the gold at the triwizard. In Goblet Of Fire, while doing divination homework he predicts both Harry getting betrayed by Moody and himself being chained at the bottom of the black lake. While he is unaware of his power, Prof. Trelawney is proof that real Seers aren't always aware that they've made a prediction.
"The reason why Obi Wan is full of humor and one liners in the prequels but not in he original trilogy was because fighting Anakin ruined him emotionally."
"Bikini Bottom is at the sea floor surrounding Bikini Atoll, a place where nuclear testing happened. All the sea creatures became irradiated and that's why they talk and have cities. There is some significant evidence to support this, Early episodes would use stock footage of Operation Crossroads: Baker to represent a massive underwater explosion. Operation Crossroads was the first series of post-war atomic tests, and both ~20 kiloton yield shots were conducted at Bikini Atoll. Also, whenever they show a live-action nuclear bomb (i.e. dying for pie when Squidward gets hit in the face) they actually show the bikini atoll bomb test!"
Brain is the insane one (Megalomania) and Pinky is the genius who always manages to foil his nefarious schemes, while maintaining the appearance of being a doddering fool, so Brain never catches on and gets rid of him. There's an episode where Brain creates a machine that will make someone a genius. Pinky goes in... and comes out exactly the same. There's also one where Brain analyzes all of his failed plans and discovers that Pinky is the reason they failed. So he turns Pinky into a genius. Pinky, now a genius, discovers that Brain's analysis was flawed, and the actual reason the plans failed was Brain himself. So Brain turns himself into an idiot.
"Chris Pratt's character in Jurassic World is the grown up version of the little boy in the beginning of Jurassic Park who Dr. Grant intimidates with a raptor claw and tells him to have respect for the dinosaurs (specifically Velociraptors)."
"The Joker kills because it's funny. The Joker switched the ferry bombs so that each ferry had the detonator to its own bomb. Watching a bunch of desperate people kill themselves, thinking they're killing others to save themselves? Hilarious."
"The crew of The Walking Dead, minus Daryl and Michonne, is slowly going deaf due to constant use of guns without proper ear protection. This explains why the walkers are almost always on top of them by the time they notice them, except when Daryl is on patrol. Daryl and Michonne wouldn't have any hearing loss, because their signature weapons are silent, while everyone else uses guns, often very close to their faces. There was an episode where Daryl and someone else are out on a run and Daryl is able to determine based off the subtlest sound that there's a walker near them that's walking with a limp, while his partner doesn't register the noise."
"Anakin unknowingly used the Force to influence Padme into falling in love with him in Attack of the Clones. At the beginning of the film, Padme isn't remotely interested in Anakin romantically, and is creeped out by his general obsessiveness. Anakin, who is both extremely powerful and unstable, did not have full control of his powers, and his desire for her began to leak into her mind during their time on Naboo. At one point, she even asked if he’s pulling a Jedi Mind Trick on her. This explains why she made a complete 180 on him during the movie, and why she said she was in love with him before they’re to be executed on Geonosis. The bad romance of the film make so much more sense, and takes on a bit of an appropriate creepy and tragic vibe."
