Until I was about 10, I never understood why people claimed to have cried during the Disney movie "Bambi". That was because I had never registered the fact that Bambi's mother had been shot and died - I was under the impression that she had been hit with tranquilizer and taken to a wildlife preserve. At the time it seemed like a perfectly good explanation to me. Wouldn't you be sad if your mom was taken to a preserve and you weren't?
Of course, the logic doesn't stop people from teasing me relentlessly.
In the film 'Pulp Fiction', there is a line "Check out the big brains on Brett". my family has it as a soundbyte on the computer. As a little kid, I heard it as "Check out the big brains on BREAD"! I pictured a giant brain on two pieces of HUUUUUUUUGE white bread.
i used to believe that actors in the film actually worked on screen in the movie theatre as on a stage and they come out when the theatre gets empty.
I used to think that Dr. Doolittle (Dr. Doolittle) and Eliza Doolittle (My Fair Lady) were related to one another- amazing, since "Dr. Doolittle" is also "Professor Higgins"!
I used to believe that Ben Stiller and Will Ferell were the same person.
I used to believe that Al Pacino and Al Capone were the same people.
When I was little I always thought that the actors loved each other in real life. I grew up miserable because I found out it wasn't true.
When I was younger, about 5, I thought Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" (Dystopian Sci-Fi movie/novel) had something to do with an orange getting stuck in a clock and had no clue why it would get rated X because of that. I know now that it is a very violent movie and is condemned by Catholics.
I once asked someone how they made it look so real when people got shot in the movies...
The response was that they find people who want to commit suicide and who look enough like the actor (who was going to be shot) and they'd use them, with real bullets.
I used to believe that when I movie came out in theaters they only had one copy of the movie and they passed it around to the different theaters across the country and that's why it would show in one place before another. Then several copies would be made to sell.
When I was about 3 years old, I was obsessed with the movie "The Big Rock Candy Mountain" In the movie, these two kids would meet two bears in their backyard. When they went down the slide on the playground, they would end up at the Big Rock Candy Mountain in a magical town. I would spend hours sliding down the slide in my backyard trying to get the the Big Rock Candy Mountain. After a very long while, I told myself that the only reason I couldn't get there was because I didn't have a magical bear in my backyard.
i don't remember what age i was but i used to think making a movie that took place over several years had to be filmed over like 20 years or something because i didn't think they took kids to be the young version of a character and another actor/actress for the older version. i thought they started the movie when the kid was like 5 or so and when they reached the right age for the next part of the movie they'd start filming again, with the same actor/actress, and so on, until the movie was finished. needless to say, i was quite impressed by the quality of the movie considering i thought for the movie to come out in theatres in 1998 or so, they had started filming in the 70's lol.
I used to believe that movies were different everytime you watched it. I kept watching The Little Mermaid over and over again because I truly believed that one of the times I watched it, Eric would get to kiss Ariel during the boat trip in the lagoon.
I always thought that the celebrities I saw at the theaters or on TV were really tall. Every single one of them I thought were at least 6 feet tall or taller. I didn't really think of them as real people.
I used to think hobbits were decorations.
after seeing the movie The Tommyknockers as a kid, i was so afraid to step foot on an escalator for months because of the green light shining through the cracks, i thought Tommyknockers lived underneath them
When I was smaller I was a very big daredevil. I have a really good memory and I can remember this like yesterday. One night we where visiting my moms old friend from a base. We hadnt seen her in 5 years. I was very young and she gave us like 50 movies we could watch. So I picked "Freddy vs Jason" & "Nightmare on Elm Street" I had eaten TONS of tangerines and I was jumping up and down freaked for my life because freddy had just put his hand in the ladys bath. For years I was scared that he might do that to me (still am) and that he might do that with the toilet. And I didnt stop sleeping in my moms bed till last year. When my mom told me that movies where make pretend. Im turning 13 this year. Couldnt she have just told me earlier?
After seeing Bedknobs and Broomsticks, I believed that my bed may fly me away one night. In order to be prepared, I would load my bed with snacks, my favorite toys, blankets and flashlights, so I'd be sure to have everything I needed if I woke up on a cartoon island.
My mum told me Mel Gibsons real name was Melanie (when i questioned it she said it could be a boys name too). Years later i had quite an irate arguement in my whole biology class trying to convince everyone thta this was true!
I used to believe that Bruce Lee died because he burst from being full of sweat. My dad told me that he had his sweat glands removed so that he wouldn't sweat on film. Sooo embarassing.
