filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
After seeing 'Grease' when I was little, I kept expecting people to break out in song and dance while we were in public - especially when we'd go to the county fair. I even tried starting it a couple times and was confused when no one joined in.
I thought that when there was a flashback scene in a movie they would shoot those scenes first when the actor was young and then wait twenty years for them to grow up to finish the rest of the movie.
When I was 7, I watched the movie, "Arthur locked in the library," and it scared me so much that I refused to go into libraries because I thought that if you went in, you would get locked in and get eaten by an evil grandfather clock. I also thought that the aforementioned clock would kill you if you sat on the toilet for too long.
I used to believe that those movie previews shown on tv were like a puzzle, and if you were to gather each different one together and arrange the clips in the right way, you would have the whole movie.
when i was young,i used to believe that everytime a movie is screened on tv, the whole set for the movie is put up again and again and the actors enact again and again whenever the movie is screened
I used to think that if you wrote a name on a recordable VHS, it would become that movie when i put it in the VCR
When watching appolo 13, I felt terribly sorry for the man called Housten; everyone seemed to want him to solve all their problems!
I believed this until an embarrassingly old age.
I used to believe they used special effects to make movie kisses look real, since obviously they couldn't be forcing actors to really kiss people they weren't in love with.
I used to believe that actors whose characters died in live-action movies were actually killed in real life. For example, in a James Bond movie each anonymous henchman who was shot was a real person who was completely fine with being killed for the sake of the film. I always grappled with the question of how these people would be paid, and I concluded that if the actor agreed to die for the movie the producers would pay off any debts of the family members.
When I watched the original Star Wars trilogy on VHS as a kid, I believed that the actors were inside of the tape, and when I rewound the tape, it would make them do the scene again, therefor making them mad. I didn't rewind the tape that much after that.
i used to believe that when you watched a movie, the actors were acting it out in real time for you EVERY time you watched it. and even when you re-wound or fast forwarded the movie they would go super fast
When I was younger, my Dad used to tell me that black and white films were black and white because colour hadn't been invented yet. I believed him until I was around 10 years old :)
