Favorite Fan Theories of Movies/Television

What are some of your favorite fan theories of certain movies? Please use spoiler tags if anything is gonna be spoiled. Mine are:

Wes Craven's New Nightmare
Wes Craven's New Nightmare doesn't take place in an alternate realm, but rather in Nancy's dreams. Kristen (Patricia Arquette) has the ability to bring people into her dream, and she tells a dying Nancy in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors that she will send Nancy into a beautiful dream. Wes Craven's New Nightmare isn't a metafilm, but rather that dream mentioned at the end of the third film, in which Freddy Kreuger is relegated to fiction. That is, until Kreuger finds and invades that dream, setting the plot in motion.

The Matrix
Zion is still part of the Matrix. The machines created an outer layer of fantasy within the Matrix to make the humans think they had escaped and could fight. That way, they wouldn't question their own reality. It would properly explain how Neo got those silly powers in the third film.

Inspector Gadget
Dr. Claw is actually the real Inspector Gadget. This applies more to the original cartoon than the terrible Matthew Broderick live-action movie. Gadget is thought to be dead from an explosion, and in her grief, his niece Penny builds a robot duplicate of him. Gadget manages to rebuild himself (with a claw hand) and seeing that he has been replaced, goes insane and becomes a supervillain. This explains why Penny always remains safe; Claw wouldn't hurt his own niece. His replacement robot? That's another story.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Ferris and Sloan aren't real, and are a figment of Cameron's imagination.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
The events of the movie were imagined by Indy as he died in a fridge.

Any James Bond movie
James Bond is just a codename for MI6 agents that gets handed down.

Predator is an anti-feminist film as the Predator only kills people with guns, i.e. men with their penises, but in the end is killed by a man with his bare hands and superior intellect. Could also be a metaphor for Vietnam, hidden enemy in the Jungle, Predator vision is in commie red?
