I used to believe that movies were actually television news stories about really weird events. This was shattered at age 6 when I saw "The Making of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids."
I used to believe that videotape projected like a film strip, so I took a video of the movie "Beethoven" and drew on the tape inside with a Sharpie, hoping to make a working animated cartoon once I put it in the VCR. When it didn't work (it looked a little garbled in places, nothing more), I spit on the tape, thinking the wad of spit, being thicker than ink, would surely show up on the screen for one frame. It caused the tape to snap when I rewound it, and it made my mother very unhappy.
When I was a little girl I was completely in love with Superman (and still I am...). My parents explained me that it was just "fiction" and that nobody canīt fly. Then, when I was watching the movies and seeing him flying I believed that Christopher Reeve had a string tied at his waist (to avoid his fall down...) and everytime I saw those scenes where Superman goes to the outside space I always thought "wow... what a looooong string" :) (I was so cute)
I used to believe that there were little tiny men in the VCR that moved the wheels around the tapes I watched...This led to many destroyed VCRs while I tried to meet them.
When I first watched Jurassic Park I thought that in only a few years we would be able to clone dinosaurs for real and I remember looking through a book about dinosaurs trying to pick which one I wanted for a pet!
When I was a kid, I used to believe that kissing scenes in movies weren't real. I refused to believe that the actors would just kiss each other like that.
When I was a kid, I used to believe that Gremlins was the sequel to E.T.
WHEN I WHAS A KID I COULDENT READ THAT GOOD SO IN THE END OF A MOVIE WHEN THE CAST CAME I TOUGHT IT WHAS "CATS" AND IT MENT OF ALL THE CATS IN THE MOVIE
I used to believe that unless a movie was really good, it would not be released to the general public. It made sense in that why would anybody want to see a bad movie? The illusion went out the window the day I saw 'Police Academy 2'.
I still think it would be a good idea, though.
I was 7 years old when"The Excorcist" first came out and there tons of scary rumors about this film. My aunt knew a woman who had aged twenty years while watching it. I of course believed her.
I'm from Germany and as a kid i used to believe while watching an american series that the actors starring in that series had to learn german ...I really didn't notice that those voices weren't their real voices.
I used to believe the munchkins in The Wizard of Oz were children who had plastic surgery and makeup done to make them look like little grown ups.
I remember asking my dad once very seriously why people in the olden days walked faster. The old black and white silent films from way back when were always showing people moving faster...
I was about 4-5 ears old when I first saw Star Wars in theatres. I had just woke up from a tiny nap and had no clue what was going on in the movie. All I knew was that a planet was going to be destroyed. It was Tatooine, but I thought that that planet was Earth. I thought that the movie was being broadcasted live from outer space. I started crying real hard when the lasers formed on the Death Star, and when the lasers hit, I was waiting for a noise of destruction to come our way.
After watching the film "Back to the Future II", I asked my dad for a hoverboard for christmas. He then painfully informed me they didn't actually exist.
My parents frequently had my older brother baby-sit me. I remember one night we were watching TV...and it was past my bedtime. My brother was 15 and I was 9. My brother decided he wanted to watch Candyman. He tried to make me go to bed but I insisted on staying up until our parents got home. I didn't like sleeping not knowing where they were. So, I ended up watching Candyman at 9 years old. For years afterwards I was scared to go into a dark bathroom.I was convinced the Candyman would reach through the mirror and impale me on his hook. After I was finished using the bathroom I would step out into the hallway, reach around the door and turn the light off. God forbid if the power went out in the house and I had to go. I would scream and cry.
To this day I still turn the bathroom light off AFTER I step out in the hall. I'm now 21.
After watching the film Mary poppins when I was a little girl, I was convinced that if I clicked hard enough, my bed would make itself.... It didnt work. Unfortunately, it didnt stop me trying to slide down the banister, and the result was a broken arm.
I never got around to trying tea on the ceiling, as of that day I stuck with flying kites.
For years, I thought the Land of Oz (from The Wizard of Oz) was Australia - which is often abbreviated as, of course, Oz. It was only a year or two ago I realised the naming was just a coincidence, and that the Land of Oz in the story was meant to be a mythical, non-geographical place. At least I understand now why none of the characters had Aussie accents...
I used to believe that if my bedroom door were not pushed tightly against the wall, Darth Vader would have a place to lay in wait for me once my father turned my lights out.
I used to believe that we (the human race) was a movie and God was showing it to everyone.
