filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was very little I believed that every time you watched a movie the actors would have to be notified and would have to re-enact the entire movie while it was broadcast on the TV. I was always amazed that they didn't blink while the movie was paused.
I used to believe films were real life.
i used to believe that jar jar binks from star wars es name was mr.brush brush
My favorite belief from when i was about 10 was that E.T. lived next door. Our neighbor sounded just like E.T. I thought that couldnt be right because of course E.T. went home and why would E.T. be living next door to me. And how did he turn into a human instead of a alien... The odd thing is they have a tortose whose name really is E.T. that made me even more confused. Well he kinda looked like E.T. and maybe he didnt go home after all just shrank and moved into my neighbors yard... and gave his voice to my neighbor...My friends teased me for years when I told them I thought she sounded like him i never mentioned the rest... :)
I used to believe that filmstars come from a different world and people from that world only are filmstars.i.e. common people cannot become filmstars....
My father was watching Camelot one evening (yes...the musical with Robert Goulet and Richard Harris). There is one scene when King Arthur is furious with his wife because she is being so unkind and unwelcoming to Sir Lancelot. The character of King Arthur has a song that he sings about it. At the beginning of the song, he is quite loud and slams a door or two. When I asked my dad why, he told me that it was because King Arthur drank some cola at dinner and the caffeine was keeping him up. He was unhappy and upset because he couldn't sleep.
I am ashamed to admit how many years I believed *that* one....
a little boy once told me that the scariest movie ever was "harry potter and the chocolate factory" i assume that would be a pretty scary movie
When I was about 4 or 5 my mom and I were watching Wizard of Oz. When it was over I asked her why the people forgot to color some parts of the movie. I believed someone took markers out of a box and colored the TV.
When movie previews would say something like "Only in theatres on November 3rd" I thought they would only be in theatres for one day and it used to really upset me.
I used to think when a add for a movie said "in theaters only" it meant it was never coming to video so if i wanted to see it i had to go to the theater. I remember being really sad because i thought i would never be able to see Fivel Goes West
i always thought that when i watched a movie, there were people behind my screen that were acting it out at the very moment for me.
When I saw the Wizard of Oz for the first time, I asked my dad why Auntie Em was collecting those baby chickens into her apron. He told me that she was going to make chicken nuggets. Made sense to me.
When I was 7, I was into stuff like today's Candyman and It. I was brave and never got scared until I saw Scary Movie (2000). That's when I wet my bed. I never knew humor 'till then.
At 8 my mom thought I would enjoy the movie the Excorcist?! For the next two years I believed the devil was going to possess me, so I used to put my dolls and stuffed animals in a cocoon around me to protect me. What was my mom thinking? (I still have never watched that movie to this day)
I used to think when I was around 6 or 7 that every bit of a movie was individually drawn out, and then when every single bit of the film was done and there were thousand of pictures on pieces of paper, someone would flip them through and other people would record it. After it was recorded, the voices were added.
Whenever someone came round and we watched a movie on TV, I'd drive them crazy being so specially in awe by it and pausing it every 2 minutes exclaiming with utter amazement, "ISN'T IT SO COOL? SOMEONE DREW THAT!" occasionally I return my attention to the TV and press the pause button over and over so that each frame went one after the after slowly. "And that! And that! And that!"
Well, it SEEMS kinda logical ;) I have no idea how I thought that up or how I found out it wasn't true. Imagine what I'd have been like if I hadn't figured out how movies were really made by the time Shrek came out! I'd have been pausing it on DVD every few seconds to pore over every little detail...
there was this movie that i used to watch all the time when i was little about these dinosaurs that had to save their grandfather from dying. well my mom told me that if we watched the movie too many times, the grandpa dinosaur would end up dying
For years, I thought the Land of Oz (from The Wizard of Oz) was Australia - which is often abbreviated as, of course, Oz. It was only a year or two ago I realised the naming was just a coincidence, and that the Land of Oz in the story was meant to be a mythical, non-geographical place. At least I understand now why none of the characters had Aussie accents...
This is not mine, but my boyfriend's. We were watching TV when an advert came on for the Charlotte's Web movie. He watched with surprise, and said to me at the end "Ohhh, so Charlotte is a spider!" I asked him who else he thought would have a web. Anyway, it turns out he thought that Charlotte was the little girl, who had spun a web of lies and deceit. For years he's been unable to understand why that would make such a great childrens' book. Bless...
When I was barely 5 my parents took me to see Terry Gilliam's gothic-fantasy film TIME BANDITS (1981). It's about a little Enlgish boy and several dwarfs traveling through time. It gave me the worst nightmares for years! I'm surprised I didn't need therapy. Even to this day, I'm still a little scared of the actor David Warner!
In 1989 I saw BACK TO THE FUTURE 2 at age 13. I still love it, but I knew that those 'hoverboards' were fictional. However, director Robert Zemeckis gave a press interview that year where he jokingly said: "'Hoverboards' have been around for years, but parent groups won't let them be manufactured!" (paraphrasing). To this day there are otherwise intelligent, college-educated, adults who LITERALLY beleive that 'hoverboards' exist! My older sister is one of them!
When I was little and I watched movies I used to think the actors were acting out their parts over and over again. I couldn't understand how they got it exactly the same every time, and I didn't understand why they'd want to put on the same show just for me, but I still thought they did.
