filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was in Elementary school, for some strange and unknown reason I used to think that the actors in movies consisted of dead bodies that were used as puppets so real people didn't have to do it. Very creepy, now that I think of it.
When I was little my older sisters used to go to the 'pictures' on a Friday or Saturday night. I didn't realise that 'pictures' meant the cinema and I used to envisage my sisters and their friends walking around a museum or art gallery type of set up just looking at pictures. I once asked them to let me know if they saw a picture of Knight Rider, they thought I was very weird.
I used to think that the movie ratings stood for:
G - Good
PG - Pretty Good
PG-13 - Pretty Good (if you're over 13)
R - Really Bad
It wasn't until I was 9 or 10 that I actually took the time to read what they stood for.
When I was little, I thought that if I labelled a videotape, I'd be able to see what I labelled when I played the tape. For example, I wrote "Minnie and Me" on the label and stuck it on an empty tape, but my mother told me it wouldn't play anything.
I used to believe that Marvel's movies were true story, and they were inspired by a true story and I would become a superhero like wonder woman just by the bite of a spider... But the problem was : I was scared of spiders.
When watching Flash Gordon (the film) my Mum told me that the theme music was by Queen.
For years I thought she meant *the* Queen
It was some time in my teens before I realised that James Bond actually had sex with all his 'Bond girls'. I thought they were just kissing and stuff - the idea and them having sex was quite shocking to me - "But they're not even married!"
When I was watching 'Blue Lagoon', I remarked to my parents how long it must have taken to make the film because they had to wait for the two little children to grow up before they could make the rest of it. The family still get mileage out of repeating this tale.
When I was a child I watched Young Frankenstien, with my family. Not being intimately familiar with the Frankenstien story I believed that this was the REAL story. for Yyears afterwards I would correct people on the proper pronounciation of 'Fronkunsteen' and 'Eyegor' and how misunderstood the real Dr. Frankenstien was.
When I was 5 i used to watch a lot of old Bollywood films with my mum (i still watch them!). Being Muslim, i knew that Hindu's believed that they were reborn. When watching the film, i often noticed that the same actors that i had seen in other films. I used to think 'Wow these Hindu's must really be reborn if they live that many lives!' I was on constant lookout because i thought Allah was filming everyone in the universe by means of hiding tiny little camera's everywhere to record our every movement!
When I was about 4 or 5 my mom and I were watching Wizard of Oz. When it was over I asked her why the people forgot to color some parts of the movie. I believed someone took markers out of a box and colored the TV.
I was a huge fan of the Harry Potter films when I was little and I believed that all the magic and stuff was true!When I was nearly 11 years old I asked my mum to ask Dumbledore to send me a school aplication!!I'm 14 now, and I know it isn't real...but I still want to go hahaha!!
When I was a kid, I was terrified of scary movies and new nothing about the differences between Freddy Kruger and Jason. To me, they were all the same thing. After realizing, that I was born on the 13th and that I lived on Elm Street, I was horrified at the thought that Freddy Kruger could potentially be my father.
I used to love watching biography films as a child and assumed someone, somewhere was filming everything, everyone did - just in case they became famous. A bit like The Truman Show, but happening to all of us.
When I was much younger I was amazed when watching old war movies that all the german soldiers could speak and understand english, isn't it funny how some things take years to fall into place
When I was little, I used to think that all actors were adults, and that kid actors were adult actors whose growth had somehow gotten stunted. I was a very confused child.
I thought when the tv said They were showing a Movie in a theater near you i got mad! Because There was no heater near me i i thought i could never watch movies!!!!!
I used to think that every time I watched a movie on tape, the narrator would have to narrate live so they would have to immediately stop whatever they were doing to come and add the voice for my movie. One Christmas Eve I played "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" nine times and I remember thinking "Wow, he must be tired of telling me this story so many times."
when i was little I loved watching that movie Mary Poppings.....i really thought i was Mary Poppings...I also thought that I could fly out people's chimney....i remember clumbing our neightbor's roof with an Umbrella in one hand and the Mary Poppings suit case in the other cause I was trying to get into they're chimney and fly out to prove to them that I WAS in fact Mary Poppings....
I used to think, when I saw pictures Alfred Hitchcock, that he was Freud. I have no idea how I knew who Freud was or where I saw pictures of Alfred Hitchcock at age 7, but there you have it!
