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.
Thanks to my cousin, I used to believe that Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street) lived in his attic. I guess he was bitter because when he was little he was told JFK's ghost lived there. I bet Freddy Krueger and JFK make great roommates!
At the end of the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade I thought that Harrison Ford and Sean Connery really got immortality because they drank off the ("real") holy grail. That made me jealous of them that they were so priviledged to be in a movie that makes them immortal. In a way of course - I was right.
When I was about 7 my family and I went to a theme park that was dedicated to movies. When we were walking out I noticed a topiary that had a sign that said "Edward Scissorhands was here". Until I was 10 I thought that he was a spy and that Scissorhands was his codename.
The very first movie I saw in the theatre was E.T. I was very distressed as I thought E.T. was going to come out of the Exit doors and get me!
My boyfriend used to believe that in every movie, they had to at some point say the name of the movie- to remind the audience of what they were watching.
I used to believe that if a movie showed a character as a kid, and then showed them older, that they had had to wait for the actor to grow up in order to film the rest of the movie. So basically, I thought a lot of movies took 10 or 12 (or 20) years to make.
when I was little I thought if you drew a door like on beetlejuice you would actually go through to the other side,so I drew a door,knocked 3 times and nothing happened..sad day
I used to think Superman was real. My dad showed me a picture of George Reeves from the '50s Superman show and said he was Superman and that he fought in World War II. Dad then told me that Superman retired to live in Queens, in a house right down the road from our own. He refused to take me there.
My little brother used to believe that every time you watched a film, the actors/actresses had to act it every single time!
until 2weeks ago i though a lightsaber was called a light saver
I used to believe that in crime scenes at movies, people really was killed...
