What IS a Minion? That was the question I started with when working on this theory. I wanted to REALLY understand these little guys, so I started searching the movies for information. Well Theorists, I found more that I expected buried in the Minions and Despicable Me movies. A LOT more. So much that I can definitely say that the Minions in the movies are NOT Minions. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

  • Having only got to 6:19, I would like to propose something that may or may not be addressed later in the episode. The minion species seems to be polymorphous, in the way that many minions have either one or two eyes, as well as them being in various different sizes (which doesn't matter quite as much.) The case generally seems to be that the minions with two eyes are about a medium size, and cycloptic minions appear to mostly be in a slightly larger size, although slightly skinnier. What is the minions are being split in half, as if they're dividing, similar to Kirby as explained in The Game Theory episode of what Kirby is?

  • I wasnt exactly sure which channel to request it on, because it is really a silly request, but a quite serious one. My friends at school try to convince me that the earth is flat. If I give them a shred of scientific evidence, they say its fake cus science doesnt exist, and it is absolutely impossible to win the argument with them. Even when I bring up common sense non scientific evidence they still dismiss it. I was wondering if there was a 100% fool proof, undoubtful, no way to argue fact, that proves the earth is round. I need something I can throw at them that they cant argue with by saying something stupid like "gravity doesnt exist its a hoax"

  • My theory for the minions is that they re-populate the same the Ambystoma salamanders does. Which is by literally cloning themselves the salamander is an all female species clones itself. So I think that what the minions do.

  • Theory: who the true identity of of goofy goober ( spongebob) so what made me think of this was his skinny arms and legs because if you try to dumb side to side with other characters in bikini bottom they wouldn’t match up because if they did they would have lines on their arms I would run down to their shoulder to their hands but is there a creature help captured in there or is it just a bikini bottom citizen who is how old captured and is forced to entertain kids in bikini bottom well if you don’t know who I’m talking about I’m talking about the dancing peanut character from the 2000for SpongeBob movie so so Matt Pat just re-watched the 2004 SpongeBob movie and if you see the peanut character in one of the scenes that’s what I’m talking about

  • I have a quick theory idea. It's not really a 'film' theory but I'm putting it in since it involves music 'videos'. In the music videos for Panic! At The Disco, there is clearly a story that's not being told. The beginning of Amen (Saturday Night) discusses the 'Devils Key', an ancient mayan artifact that was feared as much as it was respected. At the end, he gets knocked out/killed and gets the key stolen. At the end of King Of The Clouds, the lyric video, it shows that very same Devils Key. Then there's LA Devotee, which is chock full of references to this sort of thing. There is something demonic going on in those videos, all you need to do is watch a few of them, from Hallelujah, to Emperors New Clothes, to New Perspective. There HAS to be some kind of story in there.

  • You should do a video on the story of ninjago
