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!
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?
i don't remember what age i was but i used to think making a movie that took place over several years had to be filmed over like 20 years or something because i didn't think they took kids to be the young version of a character and another actor/actress for the older version. i thought they started the movie when the kid was like 5 or so and when they reached the right age for the next part of the movie they'd start filming again, with the same actor/actress, and so on, until the movie was finished. needless to say, i was quite impressed by the quality of the movie considering i thought for the movie to come out in theatres in 1998 or so, they had started filming in the 70's lol.
I used to believe that when I movie came out in theaters they only had one copy of the movie and they passed it around to the different theaters across the country and that's why it would show in one place before another. Then several copies would be made to sell.
I used to believe the theater near me was actually called "a theater near you," as in coming to a theater near you. I think it was a cineplex.
When I first saw the film Gandhi advertised at a cinema, I thought it was a film about a friend of mine whose surname was Gandhi.
I started believing in this when i first saw Stuart Little(the first one). I watched it, and i had bursted into tears! I started thinking that every rat was Stuart!
One day my dad had found a rat in the house. I had believed it was Stuart! Lol when my dad smashed it I cryed my eyes and lungs out!! Lol i stoped beilieving in that wen i was 7. lol
I always felt really akward eating while I watched a movie. I thought that only my favorite actors could see me and that would be rude to eat while they talked. ie- Don't eat while Davy Jones is talking on Pirates of the Caribbean, he can see me.
I actually believed the movie E.T was real when i was like 5, and thought alien ships landed on Earth all the time. Freaked me out for years. Now even as an adult any alien movie is too much. yes i know E.T was friendly..still freaky. sorry.
I believed that old movies from the 30s and 40s were filmed in black and white because color hadn't been invented yet. However, the movie The Wizard Of Oz confused me cause it was both in color and black and white. So I came to the conclusion that they had known that color was about to be invented so they filmed the black and white scenes first (which actually was filmed in sepia tone) and then filmed the color scenes after it was invented. What confirmed my beliefs further that color didn't exist back then was the the Wizard Of Oz book describes Kansas as having no color.
