Except when I occasionally pee rainbows I'm pretty much the same way.

Nah, I just go down to the local Jiffy Lube twice a month and get serviced.

It is so difficult for me right now to refrain from saying three or four different things. :lol:

My second conclusion is that Cid is Joe's son, with his Asian wife, who's name I seem to have forgotten. I have a few reasons for this:
1 - Cid appears to be of mixed race, he has tanned skin, somewhat Asian eyes, but also has caucasian characteristics.
2 - In a scene where Old Joe is remembering his Wife, you can see them smile, and the faint cries of a child.
3 - More may surface.


I love crazy theories as much as the next girl, but I think this one is a little too far off the deep end.

1. Neither Joe or his wife had tanned skin.
2. I think you were imagining those "faint cries." In the diner, Old Joe says "For a long time she thought we'd have a baby." That seems to imply pretty clearly that they did not.

But above all, how would their child get sent back 30 years into the past? And why would Sara say Cid was her son?

A lot, maybe all, of cult films, have some bizarre theories put out there.
(Eraserhead, Memento, Shutter Island, Mulholland Drive, ...)
Maybe it's a good thing.
I was wondering what people would consider the most bizarre film, where the most bizarre theory would actually be correct? (Planet of the Apes, Solaris,)

12 Monkeys might fit into that category. :)

Maybe this will fit the bill, a documentary styled film:'237'
'Explains' hidden meanings of The Shining.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2085910/

PS What other bizarre things have you heard?

How about....The Terminator was about abortion?
Another......The Matrix...every character was Neo (just like in identity)
Just things I read from fanatical fans.
There's a guy who wrote like 80 pages about Memento....the most insane ramblings EVER.

I've definitely noticed faint cries in that scene too, on all viewings... been intending to ask the meaning behind it for a while now actually but as you can see I have horrible short term memory.

"Top Gun is about homosexual desires." Q. Tarrentino


Interesting. I wonder what he will say about Top Gun 2?

I always interpreted it as them wistfully listening to some other baby cry.
