filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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,
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."
