Reality made to look like Fiction?

I have a question and this was a good start on another thread so I wanted to start a clean thread on this subject.

Are there any ties with movies coming out of Hollywood or previously that can be or could have been reality made into fiction?

Like ET,
I remember reading some were that former President Ragain saying to Steven Sp. that "you don't know how true this really is." or something like that.

What do you guys and gals think?

Thats a rather open ended Question .

I think this topic has been discussed before.
but its still interesting.

there is a movie with Roddy Piper in it , I forget the name of the movie .
Anyways , when he puts on a special pair of glasses he can see things that other people cant see . Stuff that has to do with Aliens .

The movie wasnt so bad, they could have made a part 2 to finish the story.

Kinda reminds me of "Rods" , apparently you can only see them on high speed film or something ? .
What else is out there that we cant see without the use of a Visual aid ?.

The Regan quote was actually about Close Encounters of The Third Kind, not ET, I believe.

But I dunno. The question is really irrelavant anyways. There are so many movies out there that AREN'T based on fact/reality, and if there are any that actually are, there is no credible way of proving this. Furthermore, why would the government intentionallly yet secretly leak true information out in the form of movie plots? Doesn't make sense, and it's an unneccesary chance at 'blowing their cover', if they have anything to hide in the first place.

There are plenty of weirdos out there that, right after The Matrix was released, all became convinced that they actually are hooked into The Matrix. Some of them even have delusions of actually being Neo etc.

So basically, even if some facts seem to tie together, that doesnt mean it's true. And even if it IS true, it simply doesn't make sense what they're doing, and it is also unprovable.

"Jedi" is an actual religion. If you ask the followers, they will tell you that Star Wars was in fact a true story that did happen a long time ago, and George Lucas found some sort of ancient scrolls/tablets that told the story. That doesn't make it true.

I suppose the only answer is that people have to interpret it for themselves.

There are some "based on a true story" movies, but even some of them are so elaborated and extrapolated that the final product is actually nothing like the beginning.

It amazes me how any people out there really do believe the matrix is reality, or our non-reality reality...
well I guess you know what I mean.

Serpo, Titor, prophet Yawhooey, and several others from "back in the day" are classic examples that those who desire to "believe to an unhealthy level" will disregard ANY and ALL facts presented to the contrary or anything that does not serve to prove the story at hand.

The logical analysis of the details is where these hoaxes fall to pieces each and every time. The "faithful" will not only disregard this analysis, they usually attack the person who has done the analysis on one way or another. Typically calling them Disinfo agents (my buddy Huggy Bear has a great commentary about that in the podcast threads), liars or CoIntelpro operatives.

The story tellers themselves invariably take on the martyr role and hide from the logic with evasion and distraction. Sound familiar?

It is my humble opinion that IF the government has anything to disclose (I am pretty sure they have lots) they won't do it through some anonymous half baked website and a messenger that can't fade the heat of analysis.

With all the resources available to the government WHY would they risk ANY doubt, the appearance of falsehoods and outright lies?! Assuming they really did want to disclose to the public I can think of several ways to do it that are beyond reproach or impeachment and I am not that smart!.

Yes, it's sort of weird; I have never seen a single suspected hoax NOT get taken down by a giant ball of logic. They say "A smart criminal is one that never gets caught", but I guess there are no smart hoaxers, because they always get exposed, usually fairly quickly from the get-go. It sort of astounds me that not a single person has been able to come up with a hoax that can't be proven nor disproven, with the exception of perhaps religion and the government, but I won't get into that
. They always screw up at least one detail that throws off the whole story.

Speaking of throwing off the whole story, if the government somehow has power over movie directors, it wouldn't use it to blatently show the truth, it would do it for disinformation. They would alter the story just enough so that it is almost close to the truth, but with one little twist that makes the whole thing seem completely crazy. Then they release the movie and soon after, the conspiracy theorists are all over it. Of course nobody will EVER believe the 'whacko' conspiracy theorists, so it's a good way to take a story that someone may possibly figure out eventually, and make it seem completely non-credible, so that nobody ever pursues the topic again, for fear of being laughed at.

Ah what a wonderful world we live in; Deception upon layer of deception.

Nope, it was ET...

Close Encounters is probably one of the most linked movies in this regard...(and also Speilberg...go figure). Oddly enough, Steven's first flick was an amateur movie about none other than the "Battle of LA" incident....

Many assert that CE3K was really a dramatization of the Holloman AFB landing, or a similar first exchange. Of course, CE3K has many parallels with the Serpo thread and mythos.

However, if you're really into this, I'd recommend searching on "Cosmic Journey" project. Allegedly, this was a program designed to acclimate the public to the presence of ET life. In THIS respect, I can see the fictionalization of actual events....but maintaining secrecy in this regard would be insane...

Still, I bet Speilberg knows way more than he'd let on about all of this....
