filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to beleive that because cartoons were drawn, films were too. I used to think that they used 'special pens' to do this.
I always thought that the celebrities I saw at the theaters or on TV were really tall. Every single one of them I thought were at least 6 feet tall or taller. I didn't really think of them as real people.
When i was little i used to think the screens in the movie theater were HUGE ones of those TV VCR mixes. I thought there were HUGE videos that a whole army of people would have to carry in. I also thought there were buttons on the bottom, so one time when the movie stopped due to "technical difficulties" i ran up to the screen and searched for a play button. needless to say, i didnt find it.
When I was little I thought that videotapes worked by sending a signal to the actors who would then quick get ready and perform the movie for you. If you pressed pause, they would stand totally still, and if you pressed rewind they would do it all backward.
I used to believe that films were real and so I would be terrified to see a scary film as I thought that the charactors would come and "get me" at night if I didn't think that the film was good needless to say i didn't see many films as a child and still have a problem with horror films to this day!
I used to believe that in movies, the same person played himself that of when he was a kid. I had thought that they actually waited til that person reached that age to continue filming again.
when I was small, i used believe that a soundtrack from a movie was everything audio related, such as the talking, the birds chirping etc... as well as the songs
When I was little, I used to believe that, when I watched a movie, every person that I saw was a real (small) person that was somehow magically stuck inside that tape and forced to perform the exact same thing the exact same way over and over again. I always refrained from rewinding or fast forwarding the tape because I thought it meant that all the people had to do everything really fast.
When I saw movies or t.v. show had a character who aged significantly, such as from a child to adult, I thought they were filmed over a long period of time.
I used to think that in movies when a character starts out as a baby/kid and then it goes into the future that they actually had to wait for that baby/kid to grow up before they could film anymore. I remember watching forest gump and thinking that it must have taken 50 years to make that movie!
My brother somehow got the idea that Daley Thompson played Gus in Superman III, & that Superman was drinking vinager in the bar scene.
If I ever was inside a plane, i used to look through the window and try to find Mary poppins living on top of the clouds!
I used to beleive that in order to rewind a film the actors would have to re-act the whole movie backwards.
I used to think that at the movie theatres, the actors were just acting behind the screen.
When I was little, I watched the movie "Iron Giant" and when the missile was launched, the kid said that everybody was going to die. I thought missiles actually killed everybody on Earth.
When I was little and I would watch a movie that a character grew up in I thought it actually took a lifetime to film the movie. I didn't know they actually used different actors/ actresses.
When I was really young I was obsessed with weddings, and wanted to be a wedding planner. I was always disappointed when they didn't show entire weddings in movies/tv; there would be the bride walking down the isle, and maybe the shot after the wedding. I decided that it was because, if they filmed the whole wedding, the actors would be legally married.
When I was five or six, I loved to watch the movie Ghostbusters 2, but when the scene with the ghost train in the sewer came on I thought that the train would come through the TV unless I hid under the bear rug in the center of the room.
When I was little... My parents used to threaten my brother and I about... Well, their choice of a babysitter for us. "If you don't stop misbehaving," they'd say, "We'll get Freddy Kreuger to come babysit you!" And we fell for it. Every time. It wasn't until later that I realized Freddy exsisted only in the movies...
I saw the movie ET when very young, and was quite frightened by it. I was scared that I would get sick and turn into a dying alien like when ET was captured by scientists. One night I was lying in bed and thought I saw ET pop up outside my window--I leapt out of bed and ran screaming to my parents' bedroom!
