filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
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.
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
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.
When I was child I used to believe the future going to be similar like in the film Back to the future part 2
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).
