I loved the movie Puff the Magic Dragon except for one part...
When puff pulls jackie's "living thing" out of his ear and puts it into the paper jackie. oh, God...
I was terrified that Satan was going to pull out my soul through my ear. Now tell me, what kind of thing is that to put on a children's show?!
When I was younger, my uncle really loved the movie LaBamba and he would watch it often when I was over. I always thought that Richie Valens name was actually La Bamba until the time I was 12 or so.
I used to believe that the "million dollar movie" that used to run on NYC TV stations at 4pm was actually 2nd run features of movies that had already been shown to a select group of affluent people that literally paid one million dollars to view the movie.
It seemed odd to me that people would spend so much to see a movie before me, but then again, some of them were pretty good. (I think I held this belief because my older brother told me this was true -- nasty!)
Up until a few months ago, I thought a "sneak-preview" for a film was a really long movie trailer that you watched on TV at a certain time. Then when I heard on the radio, "Win tickets to a sneak preview of..." I thought it was a really long trailer that you went to the theatre to see. I found out what it really was when my friend was all excited because she won tickets to a sneak preview and I was all, "Why are you so excited about a movie trailer?" Then she told me.
When I was little, my favourite movies used to be the Predator series. Now, this is coming from a 4 or 5 year old girl. But I wanted my mom to burn our copy of Beetlejuice, because it was too scary. I remember being scared to death once, because I had said Beetlejuice three times in a row, and I thought Beetlejuice would come and kill me or something. I was a very... odd child...
After seeing Mary Poppins, I immediately went home, grabbed an umbrella and began practicing to fly with my umbrella by jumping off the couch and holding my umbrella. I would measure how far I jumped each time and actually believed I would eventually fly.
My Nephew Stephen used to always ask if he could watch on VHS the Movie Prince Of Pizza. This was actually The Prince Of Egypt and when He got older he would get annoyed at us when we kept asking him to repeat it, because he thought we were making fun of him.
I used to believe that if a movie showed a character as a kid, and then showed them older, that they had had to wait for the actor to grow up in order to film the rest of the movie. So basically, I thought a lot of movies took 10 or 12 (or 20) years to make.
The very first movie I saw in the theatre was E.T. I was very distressed as I thought E.T. was going to come out of the Exit doors and get me!
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.
