There's nothing better than a good, old fashioned mystery. Used to be that when someone asked the meaning behind a mystery, a bunch of people would argue over it suggesting things that they think are true but no one knew for sure. You would need to find the answer in a book somewhere. Sure, one of your buddies, Barry, for instance, would give his explanation with such a confidence about him that everyone would believe it for a while. That was another solution.
Ever since the dag-on Internet came around, liars everywhere, the Barry's of the world, have been silenced. We had the answers to every mystery. But, over the years, humankind's laziness has gotten the best of us. Even now, with the interwebs at our fingertips, many of us still refuse to look anything up. Because of this, many mysteries still remain unanswered. Well, there is an answer, you just haven't heard it yet because you were too lazy to research it. Fear not, my dear child. I'm here for you. Barry holds sway no longer.
For many years, there have been unanswered questions in the movies. Whether it was by a mistake, like a plot hole, or intentional to create discussion among their fans, many films have left in some curious open-ended questions over the years. After some digging, the biggest of these questions have now been answered. Some of them were explained in novelizations of the stories or even in the movie scripts. some were answered after careful analysis of the film and characters, while others were explained by the movie's creators. No matter how they were answered, these solutions take a load off our shoulders. They allow us to see things a little clearer and understand the films better than we did before. Here are the 15 biggest movie mysteries explained.

When Jeff Goldblum's character from Independence Day pulls out his 1995 MacBook, movie contrarians everywhere started breathing heavily.

When Goldblum sends a virus to the Alien mothership, the alien's computers go haywire and the good guys win. No explanation needed, right? Wrong? "Erm, exsqueeze me?" they say, "Two questions: A, for Alpha Centauri, how in warp drive five is Goldblum's tech compatible with alien technology? And B, for Battlestar Galactica, how does an 8mb MacBook send a virus big enough to incapacitate the entire ship?"

1 Starwho? - 2001: A Space Odyssey
The ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey has baffled audiences for years. What's the deal? This dude is flying through space and now he's old and now he's a baby. Well, the monoliths are a big part of it all, obviously. They are basically triggers that advance humankind a stage forward—first giving the ability to use tools, next a touch of space travel, next some advanced space travel or warp travel, and finally to a superhuman, the Starchild. Before the Starchild stage, Dave is sent to that room after flying through space and all those colors and galaxies for a bit. Think of this room as a zoo or a museum in which all his life's stages of his are on display for visitors to watch. These alien visitors observe him like we observe animals in our zoos. Once the Monolith reappears in the room, Dave is transformed once more into the Starchild and sent back to Earth to advance our species forward. Until the next monolith!
