filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
My parents told me that if you touched the cinema screen you woukld be electrocuted. This was clearly just a ploy to make me behave at the cinema, but I believed it for years, as no-one ever touched the cinema screen!
I used to believe that an "Al Pacino" was a kind of a horse. Hahaha.
I used to believe that the actors would act out entire movies everytime I pressed play on the video, and stop when I pressed pause.
The guys in Star Wars would have got really fed up of saying the same lines over and over and over again!!
I used to believe that movies were all true (occuring) stories. For years I went around calling Sylvester Stalone Rocky.
I believed that chitty chitty bang bang ended at the point where they all first get in the car and it flies, this is like 15 mins into the film but my mum had taped it but cut the rest off so i was very distressed to see the film carry on after this point and you can imagine my distress at seeing the childcatcher for the 1st time!
There used to be a movie I loved as a kid called "The brave little toaster" and my favorite character was the Toaster. I was so into the movie that I thought that my toaster was secretly alive too and I would go as far as unplugging it and taking it to my room to take care of it. My ma got annoyed with it real fast and ended up hiding it from me and only taking it out when she needed it.
When I was a small child, I thought Ingrid Bergman and Ingmar Bergman were one and the same person. When I was told that Ingrid was a she and Ingmar was a he, I later thought that they were husband and wife. When I started becoming a foreign film fan in my teens, I finally understood that Ingmar Bergman was one of the most famous Swedish directors ever (although I've never cared for his movies) and that Ingrid Bergman was a famous Swedish-American actress. Also when I was little, somewhere along the way, I thought Candace Bergin was Ingrid and Ingmar's daughter. I also learned later that Candace wasn't at all related to Ingrid and Ingmar, who weren't related to eachother either.
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.
I heard about the musical Cabaret and thought the characters were involved in World War 2. (They were based on real people, but they never fought in the war)
I used to think when a add for a movie said "in theaters only" it meant it was never coming to video so if i wanted to see it i had to go to the theater. I remember being really sad because i thought i would never be able to see Fivel Goes West
