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.
I was watching this scary movie with my uncle and it had scary music. The next day when I went to the park, I thought that the band of men that were in the movie were coming to get me since I thought that the same music was playing. I ran to my aunt at the playground. I said in my high-pitched voice, "A band of men are coming to get me!!! (I pointed to where I saw them) See!!!". Then I hid behind me aunt hoping that they wouldn't eat us or if they had to, that they would eat my aunt first!!!
When I was young, I thought that the movie Anne Of Green Gables was called Anna Greengables and I always thought why would they pick that last name for her when she lives in Green Gables? Won't people make fun of her?
In the movie "Grease" when Sandy was saying that she didnt drink, I was like WOH!!! She doesnt even drink water???
When I was young and watched "The wizard of Oz" I misinterperted the ending. I thought that Dorothy really HAD gone to Oz.... and I was so crushed when I found out she really hadn't. It was one of the most dissapointing moments of my childhood!
When I was a child I believed that when going to the movies the actors were really performing in back of the big white screen. Just before Star Wars I turned to my Mom and said, "Wow, those actors must be really tired because after this show they have to do the next one at 5 PM." Mom told me that is not how it works!. I, at the age of 5, had no concept of "film".
My sisters and I wanted to know why the Wicked Witch of the West dissolved when water was thrown on her at the end of The Wizard of Oz. My mom told us it was because she was made of brown sugar. Makes sense...right? I thought so until I was in my twenties.
I used to believe that movie soundtracks were the movie's audio only.I used to believe that when you bought a soundtrack you would hear everything they say in the movie.
...is that way overrated?
I was about 4-5 ears old when I first saw Star Wars in theatres. I had just woke up from a tiny nap and had no clue what was going on in the movie. All I knew was that a planet was going to be destroyed. It was Tatooine, but I thought that that planet was Earth. I thought that the movie was being broadcasted live from outer space. I started crying real hard when the lasers formed on the Death Star, and when the lasers hit, I was waiting for a noise of destruction to come our way.
I used to think that when they said "Now showing at theaters everywhere", that it was showing at every single theater in existence.
Remember that guy from Mary Poppins who would laugh so hard he could float? Oh gosh... I would spend hours locked away in my room trying to do that. My parents must have thought I was a complete idiot just sitting there laughing with no reason.
I once believed that E.T. was real and that he stood outside my bedroom door at night!
I used to believe everything in Star Wars was real. I wanted the Millenium Falcon to come take me to space.
