Pop Culture Mysteries
*spoilers for Blade Runner, The Shining, Total Recall, The Thing and other films abound!*
The AV Club posted a great piece on pop culture mysteries last week. A few of the mysteries the site posted are ones I’ve wondered about myself, such as, is Deckard a replicant in Blade Runner and just what exactly happens in Kubrick’s The Shining?
If I were to list some other pop culture head scratchers, I’d probably throw out The Thing (I wrote a whole post about the ending of that movie here) and Total Recall. Was Quaid imagining the whole thing or was he really a secret agent?
I’d love to hear from you guys on this. Are there any pop culture mysteries you’ve always wondered about?
Real Genius Screening/Popcorn Eating Contest
