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.
I'm in tenth grade, and just a few weeks ago, my friends and I were talking about "History of the World Part I" (the Mel Brooks movie) and how funny it was.
I said, "It's the best Mel Brooks movie ever," to which my friend replied, "Don't you mean Mel Gibson? Isn't Mel Brooks that country singer?"
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 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.
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 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.
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!
Around the age of 7 I was convinced that the man with the metal teeth in those James Bond movies was real...and that he liked to eat little children! :-o
When I was about 7 my family and I went to a theme park that was dedicated to movies. When we were walking out I noticed a topiary that had a sign that said "Edward Scissorhands was here". Until I was 10 I thought that he was a spy and that Scissorhands was his codename.
When I was little and saw "This film has been modified from its original version and formatted to fit your screen" at the beginning of TV movies, I thought that the movie makers had figured out how to shrink the movie picture so it would fit on our little TV.
After seeing Bedknobs and Broomsticks, I believed that my bed may fly me away one night. In order to be prepared, I would load my bed with snacks, my favorite toys, blankets and flashlights, so I'd be sure to have everything I needed if I woke up on a cartoon island.
