I took some parts of movies way too literally as an elementary to middle schooler. For instance until I actually saw "Titanic" I use to think that when Jack told Rose not to ever let go-he meant that she had to hold onto his dead body forever. Hence around fifth grade when forced to reinact the scene with a younger girl who had seen the movie in the afterschool program (I had to play Jack-she was Rose of course) when I had to tell her to never let go-and she would let go of me I would shout "You let go!" She insisted to me that Jack didn't say that.
It wasn't until I saw the movie on tv with my mother finally that I realized it was a promise that Rose had to hold onto that she would remain alive.
Until I was about 7 I thought movies had life cycles. All brand-new movies were cartoons. Then when they were older they turned into live-action movies. Then they turned into old grainy live-action movies. After that they turned into black-and-white cartoons, and then into black-and-white movies, and then into silent films. All because someone once told me that black-and-white films were "old movies".
When I was younger I used to believe that the Reading Cinema didn't have any sound but had subtitles which you had to read.I later found out that "Reading" was just the last name of the owner of the cinema.
I used to beleive that in order to rewind a film the actors would have to re-act the whole movie backwards.
I thought for the longest time that the movie "Letters From Iwo Jima" was called "Letters From A Two Jima". I didn't get why it was "a two", but when I finally figured out I was misreading it it made a lot more sense.
Growing up, my father was telling me about Hitler's rise to power, and how he had blackshirt stormtroopers before an army, and having seen Empire Strikes Back at the ripe age of 5 or 6, the stormtroopers uniforms really scared the pants off me.
Me: you mean stormtroopers were real?
Pops: well of course
Me: are any still alive?!
Pops: it wasn't *that* long ago.
Me: (most important) DO THEY STILL HAVE THIER UNIFORMS??!?
Pops:well I'm sure some still have them hidden in the back of thier closets..
YEARS of terror.
I used to believe that all movies were documentaries, real things that had been filmed when they happened. I always marvelled that they had such great camera technology in ancient Egypt, but rode in chariots because they didn't have cars.
I used to believe that because dwarfs were featured in Snow White, they couldn't be real living people, just like fairies and goblins and whatnot.
For a long time i believed old black and white movies and photographs originally had colors, only they faded away over the years
When I was about four or five, I believed that any animated Disney movie that I hadn't seen (or had seen, but remembered nothing of) was a scary movie. Some of the "scary" movies included Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, and Toy Story. Some of those movies I was "scared" of I still haven't watched, just cuz I never really want to.
When I was little, I was watching an old, old movie at my best friend's house. Her parents were there too. I decided to point out something obvious ].]
"Wow this movie is old."
"Why do you say that?"
"All the color's dried up and gone."
They looked at me and laughed.
i used to think that the batman logo was a mouth with some funky looking teeth... until one day many many many years later I realized it was actually a bat!
During my entire childhood, I believed I was one of the three munchkins that sing to dorthy on the yellow brick road. Someone told me when i was really young that it was myself, my brother, and my cousin that welcomed her. I even went as far as to tell people in elemantary school; i was surprised they didnt recognize me.
Once when I was very young, my sister said I was a human being, but it sounded to me like "human bean". I had recently seen "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and thought she was saying I was one of the pod people and I became very upset.
After I watched Star Wars I was convinced that Luke Skywalker was going to come get me and train me as a Jedi.
If I ever was inside a plane, i used to look through the window and try to find Mary poppins living on top of the clouds!
I used to think Star Wars wis Democrat vs. Republican because they would talk about the Republic.
After I watched 'The Gremlins' I was scared of my furby because it looked like the gremlins before they turned into the monsters, and I was scared to close my eyes to wash my hair in the shower because I thought a Gremlin would attack me. I couldn't sleep either, because I couldn't stop thinking about them. It took me a whole year to get over it.
When i was little i watched resident evil and got paranoid. One thing i remeber is that anything that looks like a gate would cut you to pieces so i would cry and cry !
If your first name is on the credits for a movie, you're famous.
