filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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
The first time I saw the movie Spiderman, I was about 3 or 4. When he got bit by the spider I wouldn't eat or drick anything because I thought there was a spider in it.
When my mom would take me to the movies she would let us go to the front row but I hated sitting there because I thought there was a giant hole for the movie people to put in a giant cassette tape, and i would fall in.
I used to believe that the pirates on the pirates of the caribbean ride would come to life and eat me!
When I would see a commercial for a Mary Kate and Ashley movie I thought it was three girls names instead of two, like it was Mary, Kate, and Ashley. So when I would see a video that had them on the cover I would wonder where the third girl was.
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.
In Peter Pan, a pirate says, "Here we are collecting barnacles on this miserable island!", the joke being that they were so inactive that barnacles were growing on them.
Well, when I first saw the movie, I didn't get the joke and I thought he meant collecting like you collect stamps or whatever. I thought he was implying that they were so bored that they could only do silly things like start a barnacle collection.
I used to believe that when watching a video on tv everytime you pressed rewind the actors had to do it again just for you.
When I was little, I believed that all actors and actresses who had to kiss each other onscreen did so with the use of either special effects, wax lip covering, or didn't really kiss on the mouth (just slightly to the side of the mouth). I was convinced that they would never kiss for real.
i used to belive that wnen you watched a black and white old film ,the people were actually black and white and therr was no colour.
When I was very young I had a conversation about the origin of gremlins with my grandfather after seeing the Gremlins film. He told me that in WWII the army and air force reported that gremlins destroyed their equipment and somehow were affiliated with the japanese. A few weeks later, now convinced that gremlins truly existed I was sitting in the bench area of a local mall. An old man gave me a few pennies to through into a water fountain and make a wish. I told him he can keep his change, 'I only throw gremlins in fountains' (after the mildly traumatic climax of the film).
I use to think that everytime I watched a video there were little people in the video tapes preforming or doing something to make the movie run. And when I watched Waynes World about once a day, I was working them to hard.
when i was little i used to share a room with my sister. she had a poster from the movie "the crow" and i was terrified of it. i was always afraid that when i turned the lights out he would come out of the poster and try to kill me. i rarely slept with the lights off....
When I was 9 years-old in 1997, my friends and I were obsessed with the Spice Girls and their movie SpiceWorld. In reality the movie is totally fictional, but for some reason we thought it was a real non-fiction documentary.
We also used to think that Sporty Spice and Posh Spice were the same person (I guess we never questioned how they could be in the same scene together if they were the same person) ha ha
I used to believe that actors were people that were suicidal, and the stunts were real. I didn't believe in special affects. Yeah...
when I was younger, I use to watch scary movies, and when they were over I always thought the thing from the movie would come out of the tv and try to eat me
i once had a friend who went to see a lianardo decaprio movie, and in the end the character which he played died. my friends husband was sitting next to a girl who started to cry. then he leaned over and said to her, ( jokingly) " you know, he actually did die in real life". and that just made the girl bawl even harder. boy, did he feel bad after that!
My family has an obsession with horror movies, so growing up I wasn't really that scared of them. However, I was completely tramatised by 'Ant Bully'; for months afterwards I was terrified of sleeping sideways in case ants poured a potion down my ear and took me away from my family.
This is the kid who would always blink at statues to prove weeping angels didn't exist xD
When I was very small, Dad took us to a drive-in movie where Ivanhoe was playing. It was my first knowledge of 'knights in armor'. My brother and I were so impressed, we stopped playing cowboys and Indians and began a new game. But we didn't know what to call ourselves. I asked Dad (who wasn't very impressed by the movie), "Dad, What was Ivanhoe"? Dad said, "He was a goon". We played 'goons' until I was about twelve.
