filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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...
I was five years old when the live action Flintstones movie came out. I actually thought that they had filmed it in the stone age! I thought "Rosie O'Donnel (she played Betty Rubble) must be REALLY old!!!" I got everything cleared up a while later.
I used to believe that when people kissed in movies they weren't really kissing. I thought they just pressed their cheeks against each other and moved their heads around so it looked like they were.
I thought kisses were reserved for special occasions, like for when you got married or found a boyfriend (in real life, of course).
When i was a little kid like 5 or 6 i thought that movies where real, like someone toke a camera and filmed people in their real lives. like i thought full house was a real house with real kids and someone was videtaping them and they didnt know it!
I used to believe that when that they were filming The Wizard Of Oz that thay invented colored movies and they had half black and white,half colored movie.
