filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was little and saw "This film has been modified from its original version and formatted to fit your screen" at the beginning of TV movies, I thought that the movie makers had figured out how to shrink the movie picture so it would fit on our little TV.
Last December (I was 12, people) I watched the movie A Wrinkle in Time in school. After watching that I was convinced that the 5th dimension the kids went to in A Wrinkle in Time was real, and I was bored and I wanted to find the Tesseract.
That only lasted a few hours, and then I put myself down for believing such a childish thing at 12 years old. And then I told someone (I think it was one of my friends) and she said, "Hey, it's possible." She most likely said that to make me stop feeling so down about believing it.
When I was little the Carry On films were the most risque television that my siblings and I were allowed to watch at home. At the time, all the innuendo and tight clothing and cleavage seemed very grown-up to me. So much so, in fact, that when I was having a video-party (bet they dont have those anymore) for my 11th birthday and my friends wanted to know what we were watching, I mentioned some of those films. Most of them hadnt heard of them and seemed more interested in what age rating they were, so I confidently told them they were at least a 12, maybe even a 15. My proud bubble was burst when one girl chimed in "No they're not, they're only a PG!" No one seemed very impressed after that, and suffice to say I rented some cool modern films for the party!
I once believed that anytime a tape was played, and thus a movie watched, the actors were somehow acting it out live. I finally got straightened out when I asked my dad, "How can they be ready to redo the whole movie anytime someone wants to watch it?" and he explained the concept of VHS tapes to me.
when i was 10 (now 24!) i watched "when harry met sally" with my dad and (then) 8-year-old sister...at the famous scene, my dad, with the straightest of faces, told us that sally was having an epileptic fit...at 10 i had no reason to believe otherwise!!
I'm in tenth grade, and just a few weeks ago, my friends and I were talking about "History of the World Part I" (the Mel Brooks movie) and how funny it was.
I said, "It's the best Mel Brooks movie ever," to which my friend replied, "Don't you mean Mel Gibson? Isn't Mel Brooks that country singer?"
When I was a kid, my parents took me with them to see a movie called "Breakfast At Tiffany's". When I heard them saying it's name, I thought they were saying "Breakfast Activities". It didn't turn out to be a very good movie for a kid to watch, and I didn't get much out of it. I thought it would probably have been better if it HAD been "Breakfast Activities"
When I was a small child, I thought Ingrid Bergman and Ingmar Bergman were one and the same person. When I was told that Ingrid was a she and Ingmar was a he, I later thought that they were husband and wife. When I started becoming a foreign film fan in my teens, I finally understood that Ingmar Bergman was one of the most famous Swedish directors ever (although I've never cared for his movies) and that Ingrid Bergman was a famous Swedish-American actress. Also when I was little, somewhere along the way, I thought Candace Bergin was Ingrid and Ingmar's daughter. I also learned later that Candace wasn't at all related to Ingrid and Ingmar, who weren't related to eachother either.
I went to a catholic school and when i was 7 we saw "jesus of nazareth" in class. i didnt understand how they could've gotten camera crews to record jesus doing things. i thought they had a time machine to go tape all this. i didnt understand the concept of actors.
I thought the Stromtroopers in Star Wars were robots.
I watched movie The Ring 1 at the age of 10 and immedietly after the last shot I called everyone in my friend circle and my family and told them that I won't be here after 7 days cos I thought that as I saw that killing clip in the movie I would be dead after seven days too and at that time I was serious!
the first movie I ever saw with Johnny depp in it was Edward scissorhands when i was 6. For the longest time I thought the scissorhands were his actual hands.
For years I thought the local cinema should replace their curtains because as they opened the film shone through them!
After watching the film "Back to the Future II", I asked my dad for a hoverboard for christmas. He then painfully informed me they didn't actually exist.
i used to believe that when watching a movie in the theatre. actors would actually perform behind the canvas screen..how smart of me.??
When I was young, my mum and dad let me watch 'Terminator 2'. I knew it was a film, but what stuck with me was the idea that if you ever did anything important, someone would come back from the future and try to kill you. I used to crawl to my bed from the door, just in case there were snipers in a helicopter outside. I was about 14 at this time...
Since I can remember, I was CONVINCED that the people in Pocahantas were Spanish, not English. I think it was because I saw something else with Spanish people who wore similar clothes. (For some reason I never wondered why a Spanish person would be named John Smith). :)
When i was 6 i used to constantly watch the sound of music but became increasing worried that Julie Andrews was getting angry and tired of having to keep singing for me and that she would lose her voice... also that the new readers could see me getting dressed so i used to hide behind the sofa... Pre-recorded obviously didn't mean a thing to me!
Until Recentyly I used to think
The scary cab driver in Home Alone 2 said
Emich Petter and Head Kid
I felt silly asking a cab driver what that meant.
I then realize he said
"Ain't much better in here kid"
I used to think that Jason Voorhees was a swiss cheese man instead of a slasher killer. I played a Friday the 13th game on the original Nintendo, but I wasn't aware it was based on a movie. So when I was fighting the Jason on the game, it was yellow, and it had what looked like holes in its face due to the hockey mask. And I was terrified of it, because it looked like swiss cheese. Once I found out that it was really a killer instead of swiss cheese, somehow I became less afraid of it. I was a strange kid...
