filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was 6 or 7, I was leaving my friend Mason's house when an ad for an R-rated movie came on the TV. I said the movie looked cool and he said "Too bad we can't see it, 'cause it's rated R, for adults." For some reason, I heard "'cause it's rated R, for dogs." My parents were unable to convince me that R-rated movies weren't for dogs and were actually for grown-ups. The next time I went to Mason's we straightened it all out, but to this day whenever my parents hear "Rated R" at the end of a movie advertisement, they'll say "for dogs!"
My mom forced me to watch those Nightmare on Elm Street movies when I was 5 and it scared me to death. Inspired by a sceen in the movie, I was afraid to take a shower/bath for I feared that Freddy would pop out of the shadows and slit my throat.
When my friend was little her and her brothers used to go to the video store to rent a movie and they always wanted to rent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which she hated. She would find a different movie but they would tell her "You have to find one with the movie in it otherwise they don't have it" so she would go down every aisle picking up every case to find one with a movie in it....needless to say they always ended up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I used to think that Bill Murry and Tom Hanks were the same person.
When I saw a Back to the Future II scene of Marty McFly talking to Doc Brown on the Walkie-Talkie, I thought Marty said "Duck, duck come in!"
I used to belive that all in tv was kind of real adventures, I was a big fan of Pierce Brosnan that days and I knew that I'll watch him in some movie saturday night, when accidently an evening before I saw him travelling around the globe in 80 days (good movie!)I was really worried that he won't be able to get back on time for my saturday's movie :)
when the Scary Movie Movies first came out i thought they were actually supposed to be scary, thats what everybody else told me anyway.
I used to think that huge blockbusters that are being heavily advertised were the only movies in the theaters, and all the regular public went to see them. The weird looking flicks were movies that only freaks, or "hill folk" as I used to call them (got that from my older sister) went to see those movies.
Think I learned my lesson the second I saw "Cool Runnings" (the first film I hated, which ironically the rest of my family loved)...
Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre. I was 5. The experience freaked me out, although later I became a huge fan. I was amazed that the sets were so intricate and that they could change the them so quickly. I thought that it was a play happening behind the screen, and they put a screen in front of the action so the colors would look better. I was scared that one of the characters would accidentally shoot someone in the audience.
i used to believe that all the movies were real life stories so i asked my mom how come one actress is a detecive in one movie, a reporter in another movie and a student in another movie.
I used to believe that whenever we put a movie in the VCR, alarms would go off at all of the actor's houses and they would all have to go to the studio to act out the movie for us.(the same thing went for animated movies too.)
My friend told me about the movie The Ring, and ever since I was scared, and still am, that someone will crawl out of the tv and kill me.
When I first heard "The Exorcist," I thought that "The Exorcist" was something about exercising and work out.
Upon seeing "The Land Before Time" films, my six-year-old self became obsessed with dinosaurs. I invented a finger game, and dinosaurs would crawl around my bathtub. I would get in trouble because the baby long-neck's "long neck" was my middle finger, and adults simple didn't understand that it was a dinosaur. Whenever I took a bath, the bathtub became a prehistoric underworld and dinosaurs would climb all over the place!
When I first heard "Saturday Night Fever" I thought that it was something about getting sick on a Saturday night
I used to think Satsuki (on My Neighbor Totoro) was a gay man that lived with Mai and her dad.
my four year old niece loved watching "My Fair Lady", and thought the main lady singing was called "Her eyes are too little" [Eliza Doolittle]
When I was younger (about 8), I used to get Alfred Hitchcock confused with Adolf Hitler, because of their names.
When I was a kid a friend of mine told me about this alien movie he had seen. In one scene the good guys were on a roof throwing Molotov Cocktails at the aliens. I didnít know what that was, but didnít want to ask either. I had this image in my head of people on a roof throwing Martinis at the aliens and wondering how that was going to help.
my uncle happens to look very much like steve martin, and he does the odd commercial or bit part in a movie. Until I was about 8 I thought that my Uncle Rich was in Father of the Bride and it was just common knowledge in my family and no one mentioned it. I thought his other name was steve martin.
