filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that they used convicts as bad guys in action movies and the stars actually shot/threw them off buildings/punched/killed them.
I used to believe that when I went to movies people were behind the screen acting out the part
I use to believe that when a movie stated "5 years later" it meant they waited 5 years to continue filming.
I used to believe that it was against the law to see a sequel to a movie without seeing the first one.
I was about 11 or 12 years old when I finally got to go to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida. It was only then that I discovered that the 'ACME' Hole-in-the-walls from cartoons, and particularly the film 'Who framed roger rabbit' were not available for purchase!
when I was little I used to belive that someone keept adding parts to movies I watched. Realy though I would leave the room without stoping the movie and come back to watch later. Then when I rewatched that movie I would see the parts I missed (the new parts
I used to think that since old movies and shows were in black and white, that meant that color wasn't invented in the real world until the 60's.
I also thought the "Rush Hour" was when Rush Limbaugh was on the radio, and that this somehow created more traffic.
When I was little, a movie came out called "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum". For the longest time I thought it was "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Farm".
Back when the film "Aliens" came out, I was reading an article about it and how it was 'seven years in the making' after the first film. I thought that meant "Aliens" took seven whole years to film. The kicker was that I was 13 years old at the time and should have known better. ;P
When I saw the original "Amityville Horror" film, it was the first time I had heard the name "Jodie"--the name the daughter gives the evil demonic pig. For years after that I believed anyone named "Jodie" was evil.
When I was younger, I used to believe when movies would show the attention slide, that “no unauthorized reproduction” meant that it was illegal for people to have sex in a movie.
When I was seven I went to Disney World, and we rode on this one ride in MGM Studios that was about a bunch of various movies (I think it was called the Great Movie Ride or something). And there were narrators, who doubled as actors I guess, but I had no clue about that part.
When we got to this one part, one of the narrators (who was also an actor, which I didn't know) was doing this Old West hold-up-type thing. And she ran into this building and the building CAUGHT FIRE!!!! So I thought she caught fire too NOOO! The flames were apparently real too...you could feel the heat as we went past them. And I was just like "WHY WOULD THEY JUST KILL HER LIKE THAT?!"
I stood corrected when she came back out at the end of the ride. YAY!
I always thought when someone died in a movie that the person who died was played by a person on death-row so the directors always hired them to make it more realistic
I used to believe the D in the Disney logo was a backwards G. I never understood why.
I used to believe that the pirates on the pirates of the caribbean ride would come to life and eat me!
when i was 3 or 4 i was obsessed with the movie snow white and the seven dwarves, and i thought all dwarves mined for jewels like the ones in the movie. so when i saw one in the grocery store i yelled to my mom 'where's her pick axe?!'
You know that commercial for the movie "Milk"? He´s on stage, yelling, "I am here to recruit you!" But I was sure I heard, "I am here to make fruit juice!" I knew that couldnt be right, but I had no idea what it could be....
i used to think that movie stars were born in space and lived on stars. that's why they were so beautiful and famous and why all the people i knew weren't famous. also, they were born in the stars and everyone admired them so they wanted them to be in their movies.
good theory though!
I used to believe Tim Burton was the son of Richard Burton. And not only as a child, I was about 20 when I found out they're not related at all.
Around 8th grade I took a scene in Adam Sandler's "The Water Boy" too seriously. It was when he snuck a girl into his house while his mother was sleeping. (His mother had always warned him to stay away from girls) The girl asked if this was okay and he told her that "What mama doesn't see won't hurt her." It then zoomed into the mother sleeping-she was wearing an eyemask. I thought that her son had placed it on her so that she wouldn't be able to see him with a girl.
