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 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.

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 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.

When I was very young, my favorite movie was "Lady and the Tramp." Well, there's one scene in the dog pound where a dog is taken away to be put down. Not understanding that animals are put to sleep in animal shelters, I asked, "Mommy, where are they taking that dog? And why are the other dogs all sad?" She replied, "They're taking him to get a bath, honey." At the time, I believed her without questioning. I don't remember how old I was when I found out that she was lying.

When my mom told me that they "brought out" Lady and the Tramp once again, I thought that there were men walking around the neighborhood with carts (similar to the ones at the beginning of Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast) full of video tapes of the movie. Therefore, she had to go and buy one before they were all gone.

I used to believe that movies were shot in the exact order that you saw them on screen. For instance, Scene One was shot first, Scene two second, and so on. For some reason, I was VERY upset when I learned that wasn't so!

When I was really little, I thought that when you were going to put a video in, you would have to call the actors so they could get ready to do the show for you!
