filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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,
In the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, Jack Sparrow asks Will Turner, "You're not a eunuch, are you?"
For years, my sister believed it was, "You're not from Munich, are you?"
I thought the movie 'Land Before Time' was actually called 'Lamb Before Time'. I couldn't figure out where all the sheep where.
I used to believe Indecent Proposal was about a man proposing to his girlfriend while naked. My mom used to ask "Are you decent?" when I took too long to get dressed, and I knew what a proposal was, so...
When I was little, I thought that all the people that was killed in films were prisoners from death row being executed while making the film.
I used to believe movies were shot from beginning to end in chronological order. I still think that makes sense.
I used to believe that all the movie stars actually enacted the whole movie behind the big white screen!
When I was a child I beleived that the 'R' rating for a movie stood for 'Rude' and thats why children couldn't watch it because it had rude bits in it.
My sister used the think that the number of stars a film got represented how many movie stars were in the movie. She was 23 at the time.......
When i was about 5ish, the first time i watched titanic i truly believed that Kate Winslet was the character in the story. This belief went on until i saw it a second time (god knows how much time passed) and mentioned it too my family. they all laughed, i was so mad with shame.
This wasn't me but a work colleague, and it made me LOL. She believed that Star Wars really was filmed in space and all the flight sequences were filmed just above the Earth's atmosphere. She hadn't grasped the concept of special effects in her earlier years
I used to think that TV shows and movies became black and white as they got older, because people's hair went gray. I was convinced that all the TV shows I liked would go black and white eventually. For some reason, this really upset me.
I also used to call black and white "gray."
When I was little I used to believe that everything that happened in movies was real. Specifically in Titanic I thought Leonardo Dicaprio had actually died and I was so sad, cause I thought he was cute.
I used to believe that when a movie was dubbed, the actors actually spoke all those different languages!
When I was young, I believed that when Dorothy walks out of the house after the storm in "The Wizard of Oz", that was the exact moment they invented color television.
When I was little, I used to believe that the movies where the actor goes from a child to an adult was really the actor as a child and the director had to wait until the actor was an adult before he could film the adult part of the movie.
