More fun from Reddit's fan theory thread

More fun from Reddit's fan theory thread:

War of the Worlds:
I thought Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds would have been 100x better if the final shot was that tripod falling down and its alien pilot falling out except for one crucial diffence : instead of a generic alien body, the aliens behind the invasion are E.T's.
the planet Pandora functions as a giant and incredibly intelligent neural network, and essentially rewrites Jake Sully's mind to protect one of it's primary networking hubs. Right before he connects to the tree of knowledge (or whatever it was called), he's still talking like a marine, mentioning that he's tired of this hippy bullshit, and how he's super excited that he's getting his legs. Then BAM, he connects to the planet, and suddenly everything is sacred, he's in love, et cetera.
Kill Bill:
The Bride doesn't kill Bill in Kill Bill.
First you have to put her rampage in chronological order... She wakes up in the hospitl, kills Buck, flies to Japan, kills everyone in the tea house, then comes back to the states to kill Vernita Green. We know this because O Ren's name is already crossed off the list when she parks outside Vernita's house.
In the process of killing Greene, she accidentally does so in front of her young daughter. Her immediate reaction is shame. She tries to hide the knife behind her leg.
From that point on, she doesn't kill anyone else. Budd dies from a snake bite. Daryl Hannah's character has her eye plucked out but is left alive.
Then we get to Bill... they tell the story of the five point palm fist of death technique, but in the training sequences it's never shown that she learns it. We are specifically told that Pai Mei never taught it to anyone.
The other part that's suspicious is the play acting, when Beatrix first runs into the house there's a play scene with her daughter, they pretend to shoot her and she pretends to be dead. This is what Bill does.
At the end of the film, Beatrix is curled up on a bathroom floor crying "Thank you, thank you." Who is she thanking? Bill for letting her go. It was the only way for either of them to exit the situation gracefully.
During the end credits, each of the people on the list who died gets a line through their name. Daryl Hannah is marked with a question mark because she was left alive... but Bill? Bill's name isn't marked at all.
Because they never killed Bill in Kill Bill.
The original Scooby Doo series is set after a horrible economic depression. Everything is abandoned and falling apart, and all of the villains are people who would normally be really respected (professors, museum curators, celebrities) who have fallen into hard times just like everyone else.
The Rock:
Sean Connery's character in The Rock (John Patrick Mason) is actually James Bond. He got caught spying on America and was hidden away in various prisons. "This man does not exist not in the United States or Great Britain" says FBI Director Womack. This ties in with the theory of James Bond being a code name for different agents.
Doctor Who:
My current favorite is that in the new series of Doctor Who, the character Rory Williams is actually the Doctors arch nemesis, The Master.
I'm just going to copy and paste the theory:
"Rory has been becoming much more irrational and aggresively violent. Also, in the episode "Let's Kill Hitler" after witnessing River's regeneration and being exposed to RAW TIME ENERGY for the first time, he begins to complain of a "banging in my head", which Amy dismisses as Hitler in the closet. Also think back to "The God Complex". Rory did not have a room. He was the only character they made a point to say did not have one. And when the Doctor looked into his room all he said was "Of course it was you." and we hear the wailing of the TARDIS distress call in 4 repetitions. The only other time it has made this sound was when The Master stole it in series 3."
