When I was 6, the movie 'Jurassic Park' came out and we rented it. I remember being particularily affected by the scene with the velociraptors (sp?) in the kitchen. That night, and many nights afterward, I would check all around my room to make sure there weren't any raptors hiding in there.

I used to beleive that in Hollywood, the actors wern't actually kissing, they were just mouthing the air. This is thanks to my dad telling me that they made the male actor eat garlic before shooting a scene so that the woman would want to "kiss" the air and not the man.

Well, growing up, my mom raised me really weird (she was a germaphobe and stuff) and whenever I saw kissing in movies, I would be disgusted and think about all the germs they would be spreading, and how would they be pretending to kiss each other like that when I thought that only people in love kissed each other. So I kept thinking of possible ways they could be kissing appropriate and without spreading germs. One idea was they had pieces of plastic stuck to their lips when they were making out.

I used to beleive that people in music videos and movies were doing them live all the time. I always wondered how they change clothes so fast.

When I was little I knew that people on T.V. and in movies were only acting...so I thought during the "kissing parts" they couldn't possibly be kissing someone they didn't know. I thought they must have a clear piece of plastic in between their lips that the audience couldn't see so that they weren't really kissing.

I used to believe that a 'Lifesaber' (the glowing weapons in Star Wars) were actually called 'Life-savers'. I was so confused why someone would want to hit an enemy with something that was called a Life-saver. Sadly, I'm 14 and I just found out a couple months ago.

You know the film 'The wizard of Oz'? It starts in black and white but changes to glorious technicolour when Dorothy arrives in Oz?

I used to think they'd started to make the film before colour was invented and just decided to start using it once it was available!

When I saw previews for The Lion King before other Disney films, I saw people taking pictures of real animals. From that I drew the belief that Lion King was a movie of live animals that was shot on to special "animated film," which made the movie animated.

i used to think that since the movie screens in theatres were so big that there was a huge video player behind the screen and several people had to lift the gigantic tape into the player and then someone had to be shot out of a canon to hit the play button.

When I first saw Star Wars at home on video I announced my contention that the green bounty hunter's name was "Quachy Nose" because that's the sort of nose he had. It confused me to no end when I got the action figure and saw the name "Greedo" on the package.

Back when the COCOON movies were popular I for a long time thought there was an actress in them named Donna Meechee (I wasn't sure how to spell her last name). I puzzled over what character she played. Quite sometime later I finally found out that I was hearing the name of actor Don Ameche instead.

When I was younger, Grease was one of my favorite movies, and I was convinced that Olivia Newton-John was married to John Travolta in real life. I even had proof: she took his name, only she choose to take the "John" instead of the "Travolta."

When I was young my parents let me watch Terminator 2. Somewhere in the film it said the whole world would end in 1997. I believed this to be true until 1997 came and nothing happened.
