filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
There is a part in the Gremlins movie when they are messing with the tv and in the film it goes all fuzzy like it's been disconnected for a while only i thought it was real when i was younger and got really scared
I used to believe that because dwarfs were featured in Snow White, they couldn't be real living people, just like fairies and goblins and whatnot.
when i was little i believed that when we watched a movie people had to act the movie all over a gen.
When I was little I listened to The Wizard of Oz record album. One day I told my mom I liked the part where they find the kitten. She was a bit perplexed, so we listened to it together. During the Tin Man's song they say, wherefore arte thou, Romeo. What I heard was, Look what I found, meow meow.
I thought when a movie was unrated it meant it was so bad it exceeded all the ratings!
I used to believe that the world used to be black and white and then changed to color, instead of black and white movies changing into color.
I thought that Whoopi Goldberg was a singer until I was about 10
My neighbor used to think that people in L.A. acted everytime we played a video, and he couldn't understand how rewind and fast forward was possible.
Movies used to befuddle me.I couldn't figure out the amazing coincidence by which a phone would ring at precisely the right moment...or someone's lottery ticket "coincidently" just happened to be drawn.
My sister was convinced Laurel a Hardy were puppets because of the lines in the old black and white films. We were quite young, and I didn't have the ability to persuade her otherwise, despite knowing she had to be wrong. It was very frustrating.
When I was little i thought that the part at the begining of movies where it says this film has been modified to format your screen.. meant that they took parts out of the movie.
I used to believe that if you answered the phone you go into the Matrix and got to kill agents, so I would always try to answer the phone. one time when i actually did after hanging up i tried to run on the wall gowing down my steps and broke my arm, so i know better now
