filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When seeing films from the advent of motion pictures, I assumed that everybody used to walk differently than we do now, and that's why people's movements were so jerky. It was years later I learned it was the difference in the film equipment used.
When i was little i used to think that actors actualy had to grow into the parts that they played , for instance if the movie started of with a character as a little girl they had to wait for her to grow up so they could film those scenes , i have no idea where that came from, cause really nothing backs that up ! but the whole concept of other actors and makeup just wasn't gettin through.... but its ok after my mum nearly wet herself laughing she set me straight !!!!
I use to believe that if you rewind a tape or a movie you were making the actors do it over and over again.
I had a friend who, as a child, used to think that name of our local movie theater was "a theater near you" because of the commercials that always said "coming soon to a theater near you" :-)
I used to believe that movie ratings stood for the following: G=Good, PG=Pretty Good, R=Rotten, X=Extra Rotten.
Now that I'm grown up, I have different thoughts on this.
My twin sister and I used to believe that we could do every dance move the people in Dirty Dancing did. I can't tell you how many times we about knocked each other out when we would try to through a leg on the other's shoulder like they did in the first dance scene.
I used to think they actually killed the actor who played Robocop, like all his scenes as Alex Murphy were done first, then the director had the actor killed on screen and that OCP was a real company and financed the movie studio(that hows they gave them Ed 209 robot, and the armor parts for robocop)
when i saw Sound of music, i used to believe the kids in the movie were real life brothers and sisters.
As I saw "Back to the future 2" first time in 1991, when I was eight, I was convinced they had really moved in time to the year 2015 to make future scenes! I just couldn't believe someone could create vision of the future with so many details - there were lot of trade-marks, types of clothes, so many products (Pizza, Pepsi Perfect etc.) that it made me sure it was true AD 2015. I only wondered how the hell they had found the way to travel in time...
When I was younger I believed that every movie (or piece of literature) that had the title of the movie (or book) in it was true. For example, "Pinocchio" was based on a true story because they said Pinocchio all the time.
You can imagine how terrifying this made everything.
I use to believe that people in black and white pictures only saw in black and white.
When I was a kid I used to believe that (whether or not you were watchiing a color or black & white television) when Dorothy got to Oz you would see it in color.
When I was younger, I saw a James Bond -007 movie. The next day, I received many amused looks and puzzled stares as I described to everyone how James Bond pushed a button in his hotrod and how the "ejaculation seat" sent the occupant flying through the roof of the car!
I spent my childhood Saturday afternoons watching a lot of old musicals on TV.
I used to believe that grownups got involved in song and dance routines as part of their day to day lives.
It used to bother me that I wouldn't know what to do if a bunch of singing and dancing strangers leapt up to me and tried to incorporate me into their number.
I consoled myself by supposing that as I got older the dance steps and the words would come to me naturally, like other grownup ways.
For a long time I used to believe (due to title) that "Gone with the wind" (1939) was about the people from "old times" who lost everything when tornado had destroyed their house and everything!
I used to believe that it would take years to make a film that had children in it, as they would have to wait until the kids grew up.
My sister told me that Jackie Chan was insane and lived in a mental asylum. They only let him out to make his movies. My sister continues to lie about things and I continue to believe her.
When I was little, my favourite movies used to be the Predator series. Now, this is coming from a 4 or 5 year old girl. But I wanted my mom to burn our copy of Beetlejuice, because it was too scary. I remember being scared to death once, because I had said Beetlejuice three times in a row, and I thought Beetlejuice would come and kill me or something. I was a very... odd child...
I used to feel really sorry for poor old Will. In every war/movie/cowboy movie I ever saw, some nasty man would shout "Fire at Will!!!"
I wondered why he would agree to appear in so many movies if he knew he was going to be shot at......
i used to think when ever i wanted to watch a movie that there were little people inside that would actit out for me
