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.
I believed that the film "Home Alone" was actually called "Homer Lone" and that that was the name of Macaulay Culkins character.
When I was little, I swa the movie Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and got scared to death of the Oompa Loompas. I thought they would come and send me down a chute to a garbage disposal while I was sleeping. I still get the jitters about them.
when I first heard of the film home alone I thought people were talking about some guy called Hoe Malone.
I imagined him being kind of like a cross between bb king and frank sinatra.
I used to think that James Bond and all the other secret agents worked for MFI.
i used to think that actors were not allowed to actually kiss in films so when people did i thought they had to have kissing doubles, it always amazed me that the doubles looked so much like the actor.
I used to believe that the actors in movies had to have the same names as the characters they played. This really confused me when I saw Robin Williams in several movies, playing different characters each time. I figured he must have a LOT of twin brothers.
My uncle was delighted when he got a "Godfather" video for his birthday, and told my cousin, who was 9, that it was one of the best films ever. After my cousin went to bed, my uncle settled down to watch it. A few minutes in he heard the sound of a note being pushed under the living room door.
It was from my cousin, and read: "Oh yes? When are they going to start speaking English then?"
I was about 5 when my dad took me to the cinema for the first time. Sat there with a tub of popcorn about the size of me and enough coke to fill as swimming pool, my eyes widened as the curtains parted and I shouted "Look dad! They've got magic curtains!"
The magic of cinema...
I used to think I was Freddy's child. I lived on Elm St. and I was born on the 13th, which I assumed was obviously Friday. Turns out I was born on a Wednesday...
I used to believe that every time you watched a movie, the actors actually had to act it out again!
I used to beleive that E.T. was a killer and it took about 7 years to figure out what it was really about.
I used to believe the munchkins in The Wizard of Oz were children who had plastic surgery and makeup done to make them look like little grown ups.
when i was little i used to believe when you watched old home movies everything you saw would happen again and that you would never stop doing it.
My older brother told me that he was harry potters twin brother and every time I wrote a letter to one of the characters, he would write a letter in cursive in reply and stain it with tea to make it look "magical"
After watching a movie (i forgot what its called) but the witch goes "Im melting im melting" and starts to slowly die.. i thought if i went out in the rain i'd die to!
this isnt mine, but when my brother was like, 5 and i was 15, i was really into the rocky horror picture show. I used to watch it all the time, and he would watch it with me. one day, his teacher asked what he wanted to be when he grew up. he wanted to be a sweet transvestite.
