When a huge blockbuster movie hits the cinemas, you can be sure of two things. One, spoiler crybabies will be out in full force, filling social media with their shit, and two, within a week there will be a ‘fan theory’ written by some loser who thinks that a minor element of the film offers a hidden meaning which changes the entire context of the movie.
Anyway, there's a big one after the jump for Brokeback Mountain. It changes everything, man.
The main characters are actually straight.
Spoiler alert: you’re watching a movie about superheroes / zombie apocalypses / animated pandas / giant robot cars shooting out cans of Mountain Dew (delete as appropriate) where most of the characters are played by attractive twenty year olds with their shirts off. Subtlety isn’t anywhere to be found on the moviemaker’s list of priorities. You think Hollywood gives a shit about subtlety? They will ram whatever nonsensical shit you’re currently lapping up down your throats without a second thought if it makes any sense or not. If a Transformers movie came out where everyone just sat around and scissored for two hours you can be sure people would see it regardless, which is why ‘fan theories’ irk me so much.
Most fan theories revolve around or encompass the following elements: the entire story takes place in a character’s head, a throwaway character is actually the mastermind behind the entire plot, all of the characters are dead and the world they inhabit is an afterlife, a certain character is actually a character from another film in a different form, the whole movie is an moon landing hoax explanation, the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, etc.
