When I was little, only 3 or 4, like most infants, I didn't understand movies too well, or at least, what the characters were saying. So for years I seriously beleived that the oompah-loompas in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory were serial killers or something, and they were always on the other side of the Chocolate River, so you couldn't get to them. I thought that they would set up booby traps for the people's kids, and then kidnap the parents and kill them or something, and the parts that involved being in the same room with a lot of oompah-loompahs was that they were in an oompah-loompah jail touring it. They would mock the rest of the group after they kidnapped someone with scary little songs and dances, so up until I was, like, 7, I was terrified of the little buggers, and avoided the movie. Then I saw the movie and understood the words and all was better.
I used to believe Hulk Hogan played Mrs. Doubtfire. I never really saw the movie.
I had to leave the movie theater during Star Wars because I thought the actors were live on stage and Jaba the Hut would eat me.
Until I was 13, I believed that when a man and woman kissed in the movies or on TV, they weren't REALLY kissing. I have no idea how I thought that they could fake kiss.
When I was younger I used to think that the enemy ships in Star Wars were called Type Writers (Not Tie Fighters as they actually are).
Also in the Hymn 'Lord of the Dance' i used to think that the line
'I am the lord of the dance said he'
'I am the Lord of the dance Settee'
which confused me some
My neighbor used to think that people in L.A. acted everytime we played a video, and he couldn't understand how rewind and fast forward was possible.
When I was young there was a girl of 6 years old and she allways asked by watching the movies: " do they really kill all these people".
Three movies shaped my fears for a lifetime. "IT" made me get rid of all my porcelian dolls and clowns. To this day clowns still frighten me a little. A movie I can't remember the damn of which was about how if you die in your dreams you die in real life. The movie was called something like dreamscapes or something like that. So everytime i was chased in a dream or started dreaming anything unusual I would panic and wake myself up. The movie "carrie" I was like 5 years old and was supposed to be cleaning my room and NOT watching the movie my mom was in the livingroom. I happened to bend down by my bedroom door to pick up a toy and looked up and across the livingroom at the tv screen and carrie reached her hand out of her grave. Needless to say I screamed and hid under my bed. It took forever to get over it and for a long time I would not watch horror movies. I also was afraid of funerals and graveyards for fear someone would reach out and grab me.
At the end of the movie Gremlins, which scared me horribly as a child, it says "Always make sure to turn on the light, before you enter a room" in a creepy way. Well, I always would flick on the light with as little of me in the room as possible and thoroughly examine before entering. To this day I do that, in the same, peeking, scared way.
I saw the first Star Wars movie in the theatre as a kid. For my fifth birthday, I went to see it again. I was very disappointed when the movie ended because I expected it to have a different ending the second time around.
I used to believe that when actors and actresses kissed each other their lips weren't really touching. I thought there was some kind of camera trick that made it look as if their lips touched.
When I was young and wanted to watch movies that were a little more mature than I was - My father would tell me they were musicals and I wouldn't like them...
It wasn't until college that I found out Rocky, Flashdance, and Porky's were not musicals.
"She sees the light, she sees the light"
what I heard "E.T.'s alive, E.T.'s alive"
I was watching a movie with a friend.. Parent Trap (The newer one) and there were twins in the movie played by the same actress. One twin had nail polish, and the other didn't. When the twins were interacting, the scene kept switching back and forth between the two.
My friend informed me that "You wouldn't believe how many times they removed that girls nail polish and repainted it when they switch back and forth."
I'm not sure if she was trying to trick me or if she really believed this, but she did have a hard time understanding when i tried to explain that they taped all the shots of one twin, and all of the other then edited them together.
I knew that films were made by joining lots of static photos together, and therefore assumed that they made films by taking a photo, moving the actors, taking another photo...
I wondered how they made films of sporting events and assumed they re-created them after the event.
When ever I saw a movie, I thought the film crew filmed a child for the necessary scenes and then filmed the rest of the movie when the kid grew up years later. So I always thought it took ages to make movies, so I never became an actor :)
When I was little and my mom would take me to the theater, I saw all these tiny people at the front of the theater. I didn't understand perspective, and that things appeared smaller the farther away they were. So- I thought these people were tiny people. And I wanted one. My mommy said no. Alas- I have never recovered. ;c)
i used to think it took 65 million years to make the movie "Jurrasic Park". i got this idea because of the movies tagline on the posters for it. i couldnt understand why someone would take such along time to make a movie.
When I was five or six, I loved to watch the movie Ghostbusters 2, but when the scene with the ghost train in the sewer came on I thought that the train would come through the TV unless I hid under the bear rug in the center of the room.
I believed that everytime I kissed my David Cassidy poster he'd feel it back home in Hollywood.
