When I was little, I would watch action movies with my dad. I used to think that people who were shot died for real, and always wondered why an actor would agree to die for the sake of a movie. I then concluded that the director must pay them millions of dollars and let them live for a little while with big houses and fancy cars so they wouldn't be sad when they had to die at filming.
When a grown-up is shown as a child, it was actually them, and the film took 20+ years to produce
I used to believe that the actors in movies were all acting live behind those big curtains in the cinema.
When I was younger I remember asking my grandmother why old films were in black and white. She said that ppl used to see in black and white, now in colour and in the future we would be able to see through things. I was so excited about this!
When I was little I used to believe that when movies portrayed an actor in many stages life, they started filming when the actor was younger and then resumed filming when the actor was grown up.
I used to believe that on films when the cast came up on the end of films 'in order of appearance' it meant how good-looking they were. I always got confused watching the hunchback of notre dame, where frolo came before phoebus!
I waited for the mail to come on my 11th birthday so that I could get my letter to Hogwarts... It never came.
When I was a child I used to believe that Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang was the most amazing movie ever - when I went back and watched the film as a teenager and realized that the entire film had been a dream sequence, my heart broke a little.
When my twin sister and I were little we asked our mom if native americans were still alive today. When she said yes we took this to mean the same native americans were still alive today that were alive during the time of the western movies we saw. For years I believed that, much like elves, native americans lived forever.
That box office numbers were not about money. If I heard, "The new Star Wars grossed over 10 million this weekend." I thought that 10 million people were grossed out when they saw it.
...that everything was black and white pre-1950's and that's why movies from that time weren't in color.
I was convinced that disney movie characters were real people. After watching the Little Mermaid, I would always try opening my eyes and singing underwater, and was so sad when i couldn't do it! The weird thing was that it was only disney movies, never television cartoons.
I used to think that when I was watching a movie, it was happening live. For example, I use to think they always shut down the city of New York everytime I wanted to watch Home Alone
When i was younger i used to think the WARNING messages at the beginning of movies for copyright reasons were actually urgent news messages broadcasting live to tell us important things. I was so freaked out cuz i couldn't read yet and didnt know what sort of dangers to watch out for!
I used to believe that whenever someone got shot in a movie, they really died. They sacrificed their life for their art.
When I was little I believed that old movies were in black and white, because the world used to be black and white.
I used to believe that there were little tiny men in the VCR that moved the wheels around the tapes I watched...This led to many destroyed VCRs while I tried to meet them.
When I first watched Jurassic Park I thought that in only a few years we would be able to clone dinosaurs for real and I remember looking through a book about dinosaurs trying to pick which one I wanted for a pet!
I used to believe that every movie was someones favourite. All the way up until Meet the Spartans came out.
I believed the world was black & white before 1950, and that the Wizard of Oz was shot during the transition. When I asked my Dad if that was true, he wasn't listening and responded "Yes". So for years, I believed it.
