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.
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 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!
I still believe that in movies when they show photos or pictures of a character when they were younger, the actor has to take photos of themselves all the time in case he needs them in a film.
I don't know where I got this, it may have been a dream (or nightmare?) that I had that I incorporated into the real world.
When I was a kid, I saw "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" on TV. As I was growing up, I could swear that there is a scene after the little girl blows up into a blueberry where the Oompaloompas come in all with spoons in their hands, poke a hole in her side and start eating the blueberry jelly inside. This memory was so real to me that even as an adult I would tell my friends that that was the scariest part of the movie for me (it was very rare for movies to scare me as a child). When my wife (now ex) bought the movie for my kids, we sat and watched it together and I said, "Oh! They must have cut that part out!" When I explained to her what part they had cut out, she thought I was soooo wierd! It was at that point that I figured out that it must have been a bad dream I had after seeing the movie.
In the Indian fil industry, songs in movies are an absolute necessity. Background sining is therefore done by a number of background singers for the actors on camera.
When I was a kid i used to think that every actress sang exactly like Lata Mangeshkar or Asha Bhosle!
I used to believe that evryone who got shot in Western Movies was actually a bad man in prision who they wanted to get rid of!
I used to believe that ET was actually a murdering alien who came to earth to kill little children and was living under my bed!
As a small child, I used to believe that Elizabeth Taylor (the actress) and Queen Elizabeth (the queen) were the same person. I think I figured out the difference around 3rd-4th grade (1962), but I was really confused there for a while (both were in the news a lot back then).
I used to believe that people called your house and asked you if you wanted to be an actress....so I always waited and no one ever called..im 13 now...lol..i wanted to be an actress when i was young
i use to think that movies were real and there were just camras all over the world. then i woundered why i was never in a movie.
After seeing the movie nuclear war movie, "The Day After" when I was about ten years old, it scared me so bad that every single time a news update commercial came on television, I thought it would be announcing that the bombs were on their way from Russia. That movie messed me up bad!
I used to believe that movie soundtracks were the movie's audio only.I used to believe that when you bought a soundtrack you would hear everything they say in the movie.
...is that way overrated?
When I was young, I thought that the movie Anne Of Green Gables was called Anna Greengables and I always thought why would they pick that last name for her when she lives in Green Gables? Won't people make fun of her?
When i was little I used to belive that the probe on Star Trek:Voyage Home was really in outerspace and we needed to find whales for it.
