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.
When my friend told me about the Halloween films I believed it was the true stry of the actor Mike Meyors becoming a serial Killer.
Someone else here used to believe this to..
i used to believe that the tiny bits of dust that show up in the light were bits of film. I was always scared in cinemas, what if someone ate an important part of the film?
when i was about 8 i decided to tell everybody indiana jones was my real father, everyone belived me untill a year later when we all found out indian was a made up character
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!
As a young child my mother used to take me and my brothers to the movies a lot...to keep us quiet she told us that the lights in the middle of the aisles were motion / noise detectors, and if we moved or talked the lights would electrocute us. I was 11 years old untill I learned the truth.
When I was younger, this girl my aunt used to baby-sit was my best friend. We were together every day. And our favorite movie was Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. Well, I had this little swing set in my yard, and we'd find a stuffed animal that had wings, like a bird or something, and we'd write a note saying we'd were at the Chocolate Factory. We thought we could swing to a cloud and find the Chocolate Factory, and use the flying stuffed animal to get us there!
I thought for a while when I was younger that my brother Jason was Jason from Friday the 13th because they had the same name.
I used to think lady and the tramp was an old movie with actors and marilyn monroe. My parents had me go home and watch it, and then i realized it was a cartoon and i actually liked it!
I used to believe (and I still believe my demented kindergarden teacher put this belief into our heads) that the FBI warning at the beginning of videos prohibiting unauthorized copies meant that we could not act out anything we saw on the tape, that is to say, copy their actions. So when I was the only one who stood up and imitated the dancing on the tape, the entire class screamed at me to sit down, and I have felt the first of many traumatic school experiences...it was only until 3rd grade I learned that copies of movies could be made, something we learned to do quite rapidly with our spare VCR and Blockbuster membership..
I thought there was only one copy of a movie and you had to wait til it got to your town,
I used to believe that when I would watch "Pochahontas" that during the Colors of the Wind song, it would flood. So I always fast forwarded through that part. I think it might have been because it did flood at my house one time when I was watching it, but that's really the only explination I have...oh well.
I used to watch cowboy films and wonder who on earth would volunteer to play the indians that got shot. I figured that they must be played by depressed people who didn't care if they got killed.
did you ever see the ring one time my dad peeked his eye through the crack in my door and i yelled really really REALLY!!!!!!!!! LOUD BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS THE EVIL GIRL that watched the tape coming to kill me (dont watch the ring if your under 13 years old)
I remember an ad for the "It Takes Two" movie and how the whole audience was made out of twins. I then believed you need to have a twin to go see the movie.
I Have a Thomas the tank Engine Video Called " Thomas Breaks the Rules "
I Used to call It " Thomas Breaks Stories "
I used to think that if a movie either had flashbacks to an adults childhood, or they started when they were a child or anything that required an adult character to be shown as a child, or vice versa, that they filmed the parts in childhood when the actors were that age, and then they had to wait for the actors to grow up to be the right age and film the rest of the movie.
When I was young (around 5 or so), I was convinced that the movie "Milo and Otis" was called "My Little Otis". I called it that for a few years until my parents decided to break it to me I was saying it wrong.
