filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to think the Star Wars movies were filmed on Mars.
I used to believe that the film "Never ending story" was really without an end. So, when I listened to my friends at school talking about it, I passed my afternoons zapping all the channels in order to find this endless film
I used to think that people that died in movies, died in real life too
I used to believe that the african words in the lion king movie were just made up and never existed in real life, especially the hakuna matata song, which according to timon and pumba, means "no worries", but i just thought it was nonsense words in their made-up language, until i searched it on the internet and my mind was blown!
When i was five, I saw the movie Muppets from Space. Someone in the film writes a message in the alphabet soup that said
I didn't know about texting stuff or anything back then, so i pronounced it "Roo there".
There's a scene in the movie "Herbie: Fully Loaded" where, for a single second, you can see Lindsay Lohan's bare shoulders and upper back as she changes clothes. I thought this qualified as nudity and was shocked that the film was rated G. It was long time before I realized it was possible for movies to have ACTUAL nudity.
Other examples include a moment in "Kangaroo Jack" where the camera lingers on the female lead's (completely covered) breasts - I just didn't realize it was possible for movie content to get more graphic than that and was bewildered that the movie got away with the PG rating.
When I was three or four years old I was terrified of the film 'The Never Ending Story' because I literally thought it would never end. I had a strict parent who expected me to sit still and watch the entirely of films - no 'getting distracted' and going off to do another activity. I thought I'd get old and grey forced to watch this film that would never end, and that the actors were constantly filming new material. I never got around to watching it until I was in my mid-twenties.
My family has an obsession with horror movies, so growing up I wasn't really that scared of them. However, I was completely tramatised by 'Ant Bully'; for months afterwards I was terrified of sleeping sideways in case ants poured a potion down my ear and took me away from my family.
This is the kid who would always blink at statues to prove weeping angels didn't exist xD
In those beautiful innocent childhood days, i used to believe that people in movies die for real and how come they become alive in the next movie :)
When I was really young I was obsessed with weddings, and wanted to be a wedding planner. I was always disappointed when they didn't show entire weddings in movies/tv; there would be the bride walking down the isle, and maybe the shot after the wedding. I decided that it was because, if they filmed the whole wedding, the actors would be legally married.
I used to think only super attractive people got to be actors. So I always got really confused when I was watching a movie and not everyone looked like supermodels.
Whenever the subject of the historical Titanic comes up, someone makes a joke about the death of Leonardo DiCaprio. Because of this, I used to believe that DiCaprio was the name of an actual famous person who died during the sinking of the real Titanic.
I thought this for several years, until one day I saw the poster for the movie, with DiCaprio's name on it... at which point I somehow concluded that they got a descendant of the historical DiCaprio to play him in the movie. I don't remember when I finally figured out that there was no historical DiCaprio, just the actor.
I used to think, to protect the environment and prevent global warming, I couldn't have friends. I saw a webtoon, one character said he wanted to see Cars (the movie), the other said cars were "toxic little beasts, causing our planet to melt". Then I saw a McDonalds advert, telling me the movie Cars was about friends. I put 2 & 2 together.
We watched the film Arsenic and Old Lace when I was a kid, and I thought the title was "Our Snickin' Old Lace." I was annoyed that no one was able to tell me what "Snickin'" meant, so I thought maybe it was something like snickering. So I imagined the lace laughing at people.
When My Sister Saw The Movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, She Tried To Build A Shrink Ray But Never Did
After Watching Toy Story, My Friend Believed That His Toys Became Alive After He Left His Room. Now He's 25 And Still Believe That.
The first time I saw a 3D/IMAX movie my parents joked that they should release smells into the movie theatre to make it even more realistic. I thought they were serious and I was very disappointed that it didn't smell like anything when I got inside. I got even more disappointed when there really weren't any smells piped in during the movie!
I used to think that a movie is made in realtime. I tought that a 2 hour movie is made in 2 hours.
I used to believe that the world used to be black and white and then changed to color, instead of black and white movies changing into color.
I used to believe that the contents of home-recorded VHS tapes were partially randomized each time they were played. I can probably blame this on a combination of older tapes being recorded over, and sections becoming defunct as they wore out with time.
