filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
I never understood the magic of video cassettes. I truly thought that when inserting the cassete into your VCR, there was a signal sent to the studio, upon which the actors would immediately jump up and begin performing.
When I was younger,I used to believe that if actors in a film kissed, they had to be married in real life.
I believed that actors who died in a movie--got paid a lot of money----went out and had a blast till the money ran out----then went and got killed in the movie---don't know where I got that idea
When i was little, my grandmother used to babysit my sister and me and watch movies with us. Whenever the FBI Copyright warning would come on, i'd ask what it was and grandma would invariably answer "Don't worry about that. It's not for kids." For some reason i took this to mean it was "adult content" and looked away for fear of accidentally seeing naked people and getting in trouble with the FBI. It never occured to me to question why there would be porn at the beginning of my favorite Disney cartoons.
As a kid I used to watch these old b&w movies and thought that world used to be black and white..
I used to think that, if they did flashbacks to when the characters were young, they would start filming when all the actors they wanted were at a young age, and then waited until recently to do the present scenes!
When I would see a commercial for a Mary Kate and Ashley movie I thought it was three girls names instead of two, like it was Mary, Kate, and Ashley. So when I would see a video that had them on the cover I would wonder where the third girl was.
I usesd to believe that black and white movies were once in color. I thought that over time the color would dissappear.
I used to believe that the actors in the cowboy movies really went over a cliff or really got shot and I was undecided whether it was worth all that to be in a movie.
