When I was young I used to think that if you didn't take a movie out of the VCR as soon as the credits ended it would start playing backwards and I was terrified (and still am) of songs and movies playing backwards.
I didn't know about dubbing until I saw Titanic when I was like 11. I always thought the actors spoke so many languages!
When I was 8 years old I watched the movie-Children of the Corn-I was so scared after watching that movie, that i slept with the bible for about a month and started going to church. I did not want to be one of the children of the corn. For a long time also wished that I lived in a state that wasnt so close to Iowa. Thats were the Children of the corn were from.
When I was small I used to believe that movies were actually real and that the movies were just caught on tape by mistake, but then I heard about actors and how it's fake.
i used to think disney princesses had such white teeth because they had oreos in their mouths and they're lips hid the black cookie
I watched Beetlejuice when I was little and I thought Michael Keaton really looked like that. I wanted to find another movie he was in to see if he really looked like that.
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.
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 the actors in movies were all acting live behind those big curtains in the cinema.
When a grown-up is shown as a child, it was actually them, and the film took 20+ years to produce
When I was little, I used to think that actors in movies were little people and the old school VHS cassette tapes were their homes, and they would pop out when you put it in the VCR and them running around inside was the movie. I would always evenly play all of my tapes to make sure none of them felt left out.
When I was a kid I used to believe that if you got bitten by a spider you could become Spiderman or Spiderwoman.
I used to think that a movie is made in realtime. I tought that a 2 hour movie is made in 2 hours.
I used to believe that the cowboys in westerns that got shot up in gunfights were actors who didn't want to live anymore. So the film makers paid their family so that they could film them being shot.
When I was 9 or so I knew that the people kissing in movies weren't really married. So when I saw my first movie with a sex scene, I was scandalized that these unmarried people were having sex!
Fortunately my friend's older sister was there to explain that there were things called "rubbers" that the actors used, so nothing really touched and it wasn't really sex. What a relief.
i used to believe that they really killed Indians on westerns.
I used to believe when it said "Only In Theaters" during movie previews that the movie would never come out on video and that if I didn't see it in the theaters, I would never see it again.
this isnt mine, but when my brother was like, 5 and i was 15, i was really into the rocky horror picture show. I used to watch it all the time, and he would watch it with me. one day, his teacher asked what he wanted to be when he grew up. he wanted to be a sweet transvestite.
When I was little I knew that people on T.V. and in movies were only acting...so I thought during the "kissing parts" they couldn't possibly be kissing someone they didn't know. I thought they must have a clear piece of plastic in between their lips that the audience couldn't see so that they weren't really kissing.
I used to believe that every movie had a painted backround and nothing was real! I would always say it looked so real!
