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