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 :)
when i was small, i used to think that the film 'fiddler on the roof' was a horror movie. it always sounded a bit sinister
I used to believe that The Blair Witch Project was real. And those dolls that stood in the corner used to freak me out (and still do) because of the end of the movie.
I used to believe that actors come together to act out a movie, scene by scene, every time a new copy was to be made.
When I was a kid I would watch old black and white movies and thought that something happened around the 60s that made everything color. It wasn't until I asked my parents what it was like when the world went color that I learned the truth,
