When I was around eight or nine years old, I always used to hang out with my "favorite" cousin who was three years older than me.
One night, my cousin, his friend, and I were outside of his house playing around and talking when suddenly his friend called me a "fag". Being older than me and trying to act cool, they wouldn't tell me what it meant. A few minutes later, they told me that the "Candyman" (from the popular horror film) would get me. Being absolutely terrified, I ran in the house to my mom.
"Mom! The Candyman is going to get me! Does he only come after fags?" I was terrified.
Looking back at that now, mom probably laughed about that with her friends for hours after I went to bed - knowing that I was safe from the Candyman because I wasn't a fag.
I used to think that in movies or TV shows with flashbacks to the character's youth, that they had actually begun filming the show back when the actor was a child and resumed filming the rest of it when he or she was grown up. I always wondered how they knew that person was going to grow up to be an actor and want to do the rest of the movie. Or I marveled at the foresight of the filmmaker to start making the movie before he knew the rest of the story.
When I was 9 I watched Jarassic Park. It was the first film I ever saw when people die. So I thought of this theory that what happened was that they got paid lots of money then a year later the scenes were shot and they died. I asked my mum about this and she assured me they didn't die and she showed me the 'Making of the film' extra which explained the special effects.
I was a huge fan of the Harry Potter films when I was little and I believed that all the magic and stuff was true!When I was nearly 11 years old I asked my mum to ask Dumbledore to send me a school aplication!!I'm 14 now, and I know it isn't real...but I still want to go hahaha!!
When i was little i used to think that the people who died in movies were people who did a crime and got the death penalty.
Once while watching a video with my grandmother, i saw that warning about copyright infringement but the only word i recognized was WARNING. I asked my grandma what the warning said, and she replied "oh, That's not for kids." Naturally, i assumed it must be something really bad and she just didn't want me to be scared. I spent the whole movie worrying about what terrible danger the video was trying to warn me about and wondering how my elderly grandmother was supposed to protect me from it. Eventually i decided it was a tornado warning and every time we watched a video after that i'd mentally plan my escape from the tornadoes that were out to get me.
When the movie "Full Metal Jacket" came out, I thought it meant an actual jacket made of metal that the soldiers would wear, kind of like a suit of armor.
After watching the movie of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original 80's version) I was convinced shredder and his evil mutants were going to appear out of a sewer from my bedroom floor. The fact my house was sitting on a massive concrete slab didn't factor into it. I was terrified for years after that........
When I was a little boy I would watch old films with my Grandmother who spoke very broken English with a thick Greek accent.
I was about 15 yrs. old when I realised that
Bah Layngasstar and Tarra Parra
were actually Burt Lancaster and Tyrone Power.
Also I when I was about 11yrs old I used to think if there was an earthquake and California sunk into the ocean then there would be no more movies because all the movies were made in Hollywood.I figured that they could make movies in New York if that happened but they probably wouldn't be as good.
there were curtains under the big screens in the movie theaters and me and my friend thought there were naked people dancing behind it
I used to believe White Christmas was an hour and a half of TV fuzz. I couldn't imagine why everybody liked the film so much.
I used to believe that actors were people that were suicidal, and the stunts were real. I didn't believe in special affects. Yeah...
In the 90's, when the first Austin Powers movie came out, my friends and I had just watched the "Halloween" movies for the first time...so whenever people would talk about Mike Myers, we would get really confused and think they were talking the "Halloween" movies...I remember in like 5th or 6th grade, this boy in our class did something that was kinda awkwardly funny and someone was like, "Ha ha, that's something that Mike Myers would do!" and my friends and I got really confused and were like, "No, he wouldn't! He would attack you with a knife!"...and we couldn't understand why people were giving us strange looks!!
You know how really old movies are in black and white? Well, I used to believe that movies became black and white over a long period of time because all the colour faded away. So when I went to see a movie when I was about 7, I thought 'Wow this is going to be in black and white in 60 years :O'
When I was little I saw the movie Mary Poppins I loved how Mary could fly with her umbrella and wanted to fly as well.
One day it was rather windy out and got real excited. I went and got my mum's umbrella and ran to the picnic table and opened it up and jumped off it over and over again. I was determinded to fly.
It never happened.
When they write Disney on the screen in 'Disney Script' I thought the D looked like a weird G and it wasnt for years that I finally saw the "D". I always thought it odd that they would be Gisney films....
I used to believe that Storm Troopers in the Star Wars films were Robots. It never occurred to me to question how Luke and Han could put on the suits if there was a robot inside.
Right after I watched Jaws for the first time, I ate dinner with my family in our backyard. However, I had still not recovered from the movie.
Throughout the dinner, I was completely convinced that Jaws was going to come around the side of our house and devour me. We lived in St. Louis.
I was watching Cheaper by the Dozen with my seven year-old niece last year. At the end before the credits, they have some bloopers. One of them is of the actor who plays the oldest son snogging the actress who plays the mother.
My niece was horrified, and no matter how many times we tried to explain to her that they were actors and not really mother and son, she just couldn't believe that "She would FRENCH her own son!!"
When I was 9 years-old in 1997, my friends and I were obsessed with the Spice Girls and their movie SpiceWorld. In reality the movie is totally fictional, but for some reason we thought it was a real non-fiction documentary.
We also used to think that Sporty Spice and Posh Spice were the same person (I guess we never questioned how they could be in the same scene together if they were the same person) ha ha
