15 Theories That Will Make Us Look At Old Movies In A Different Light

While most people often look for recommended Movies to have a relaxing time, many others take it upon themselves to pay attention to every single detail so that theories pop into their heads, almost as if by magic. Sometimes they think of other endings and connections between movies, or even possible betrayals and new villains.
Some people may think they always make things complicated and ignore the crowd discussing or explaining an unfinished event or series of events in movies. Still, everyone has their own ways to enjoy their movies. And, for someone who loves theories and imagination, here are 16 movies that will make you look at old movies in a different light. Let’s scroll down and check them out!

#1 The end of Logan is raised in The Wolverine.

After focusing on the details so many times, we will understand that in The Wolverine, the main character converses with Yokio, the mutant who can see the future. She explains to Logan the moment of his death: “I see you lying on your back... You’re holding your own heart in your hand.” As it turns out, that happens to Logan 4 years later, and his heart is his daughter.

#2 In Titanic, Jack is a time traveler.

This theory proves that Jack has come to that historical moment to stop Rose from falling off the ship and losing her necklace in the ocean. Jack gambles to obtain the ticket, investigates the location, and waits for her to appear at the stern that night.
Still, he falls in love, and although it takes place on the floating door, he chooses to die, so he can return to 1997 and prepare the charade of the team of experts talking to an elderly Rose. It’s a pity that, because of an oversight, the jewel finally drop into the water.

#3 In Cars, cars got rid of humans.

For the most creative fans, the theory resonates that the vehicles in Cars truly exterminated the human race. Many markings in the movies suggest that before cars, humans lived on the Earth, but where are they? Many people have imagined that the technological advancement of autonomous cars probably made them think that one day we, their drivers, are unnecessary.

#4 The Jurassic Park dinosaurs were never actual dinosaurs.

Another of Hammond’s lies is being discovered. The animals in his park are genetic combinations of different creatures until scientists manage to make them resemble dinosaurs. This would describe the reason for the odd mutation of the animals in the park. In the end, in Jurassic World, they officially present their first genetic creation, which does not end very well.

#5 Professor X’s twin in X-Men: The Last Stand

As we all know, Professor X survives the disintegration, but, what the majority of us thought is that he already had a twin. He’s considered to appear in the movie’s post-credits scene when a hospitalized man is presented. That turns out to be the same man to whom Xavier transferred his consciousness.

#6 At the end of The Thing, one of the 2 survivors is infected.

In the final scene, John Carpenter’s horror masterpiece shows the characters MacReady and Childs sitting in the center of a snowstorm. The two are split and escalating tension can be felt in the atmosphere. Everything shows that one of the two survivors was infected. The big question is … who?

#7 In Wonder Woman, Chief is a demigod.

As we all know Princess Diana encounters Chief in Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman movie, a character with whom she talks a foreign language that is not subtitled. After that, fans figured out that after translating the dialogue, Chief presents himself to Wonder Woman as Napi, a demigod of the Blackfoot culture. Could it be that Chief is a demigod?

#8 Simba is responsible for the drought in The Lion King

Simba is supposed to be straightly responsible for the drought that Scar is blamed for. When the proper heir abandons his people and takes the wisdom of the past kings with him, the flora of the place disappears.
“The previous kings, like Mufasa, are in the sky and the clouds, leaving to follow the true king. Simba spent years with Timon and Pumba in what looks like a tropical paradise that received a lot of rain. Then, when he returns to the Kingdom Lands, the clouds follow him, and it starts raining soon after Simba takes the throne that belongs to him,” a fan commented.

#9 In Man of Steel, Aquaman saves Superman from drowning.

If you keep watching carefully, you may find out a burning oil rig collapses on Clark, who floats, unconscious, to the surface of the sea. It’s hard to believe this is due to ocean currents, thanks to Aquaman himself. Early theories suggested that the hero sent whales to help, but the best hypothesis is that Aquaman himself rescued him.

#10 In the 007 sagas, James Bond is an inherited name.

Many think that the character isn’t eternal, doesn’t regenerate, and that the movies don’t keep recycling him, though, that James Bond is a code name. It is used by the Secret Service for that kind of agent, just like M or Q. In fact, every James Bond retires after a while, which would explain the well-known saying of George Lazenby in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service: “That never happened to the other Bond.”

#11. Terminators are slaves forced to serve Skynet.

In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, we figured out that Skynet set all the Terminator chips in read-only mode because it didn’t want them to learn or have any kind of independence. And, when the Terminator’s chip is reprogrammed, after a few days, it turned into more human and comprehends its situation better. The theory is that Skynet enslaved them for their genocidal cause. They are just stuck in extermination mode.

#12 It’s a Wonderful Life is an old version of The Truman Show.

Fans think that George Bailey, from It’s a Wonderful Life, never runs away from Bedford Falls. A series of amazing circumstances always stop him from taking the train out of town, whether it be his father’s death, his brother’s career, the impending bank loss, etc. It could be due to the station going nowhere, and a few miles ahead, a large wall the color of the sky displayed the boundary of a film studio. It’s the same as what happens in The Truman Show.

#13 Chris Pratt could be the villain of Passengers.

Passengers can be completely known as a thriller. A woman wakes up and realizes she’s locked in a ship, destined to live with a man for the rest of her days. Resigned to her future, she finally falls in love with him.
But halfway through the movie, she discovers that all this time, it was he who woke her from her lethargy. If the movie had been created from her perspective, Chris Pratt would be the psychopathic villain of the story, not the hero, actually.

#14 Te Fiti’s heart kept Moana’s grandmother alive.

Some suspect there is a reason why soon after Grandma gave Moana Te Fiti’s heart, she turned ill and died. They stated that the heart could make life, so maybe it also kept Grandma alive until she could send it to Moana when the time came. Prior to that, we could always see her full of life and energy.

#15 Isabella was the real villain in The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

The theory is that Paolo never said lies or wanted to deceive Lizzie. We suspect that the villain in the movie was, in reality, Lizzie’s own doppelgänger, Isabella Parigi. Everything Paolo says is correct in the movie, and he never wanted to hurt Isabella but was only trying to save his career. We see in the final scene that Paolo’s microphone is on when he sings well, and Isabella turns it off when he begins the part where he sings terribly.
