filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was very little I believed that every time you watched a movie the actors would have to be notified and would have to re-enact the entire movie while it was broadcast on the TV. I was always amazed that they didn't blink while the movie was paused.
When I was little I used to believe the movie "Alice in Wonderland" was actually called "Alison Wonderland". I thought her name was Alison. I was very little then.
I used to think after watching the movie Goast Busters that that the pink foamy gewy stuff that came out of the bath facet would come out of mine when I had to take a bath so I was always scared to take a bath.
I used to believe that producer Fred Fuchs was Fred F***s. I guess that was because I wasn't wearing glasses and the "h" looked like a "k."
Whenever I saw a movie based on a true story, I used to believe that there were cameras following the "real" person around and I would wonder how they knew that a good story was going to happen to that particular person. And if someone killed someone I wondered why that person was stupid enough to do it in front of a camera.
At the movie theater, they had 'Show Tunes' so music was playing in the theaters while you waited for the commercials/previews to start, I used to think there were people behind the screen playing the music.
When I was 14 (soooo embarrassing...) my friends and I got in big trouble for renting "Basic Instinct" on an afternoon off from school. But we weren't bad kids - just naive. You see, we thought all the sex and bad language was edited out for home video since once they're rented, anyone in the house can see them. So we had the double shock of seeing more than we wanted to and then getting in trouble for it!
When I was very young, I had an animated Beatrix Potter video of one of her stories, and for some reason I believed that the ending credits went on for ever!
I believed for so long that Lindsey Lowhan (or however you spell it) had a twin during the parent trap...I still say she does..lol :-)
I didn't understand that movies could be filmed in separate scenes, and I wondered how the actors changed their clothes in the split second between scenes.
I used to believe that it was against the law to see a sequel to a movie without seeing the first one.
When I was younger,I used to believe that if actors in a film kissed, they had to be married in real life.
When I was younger I remember asking my grandmother why old films were in black and white. She said that ppl used to see in black and white, now in colour and in the future we would be able to see through things. I was so excited about this!
When I was younger I was convinced all of the cartoon characters in the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? were real because of the way they interacted with the actors in it.
When I was little and my mom would take me to the theater, I saw all these tiny people at the front of the theater. I didn't understand perspective, and that things appeared smaller the farther away they were. So- I thought these people were tiny people. And I wanted one. My mommy said no. Alas- I have never recovered. ;c)
We took my sister to see National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when she was 5. When it got to the scene of the cat being electrocuted under the chair, my dad actually had to take her out of the theatre because she was crying so much and so loud. She was convinced that they'd actually fried that cat.
My son, who was at the time about 7 years old, was very easily frightened. A friend wanted him to watch the movie "Something Wicked This Way Comes," which is a Disney movie, but sort of scary, nonetheless. Of course, I didn't allow him to watch it. But the friend described the movie for him, but made it sound very innocuous. However, he mentioned a scene where a merry-go-round goes backwards, which was enough to send my son over the edge. Later that night, there was a knock at my door, and my son appeared, crying, saying "Mommy, I'm afraid - Something Wicked is coming this way!"
I used to believe that the place where black & white movies were recorded everything was in black & white.
When I was about 8 or 9, my older sister was watching Edward Scissorhands. I was allowed to watch it with her because everyone thought I was old enough...however, the scene in that movie where he lightly touches the guys face and it bleeds scared me to death. For 6 months, when I walked down the hall (one floor, long hallway), I would stop at every door and peek in to make sure that he wasn't standing in the doorway to cut my head off.
Even when someone was walking with me...I wouldn't tell them the reason though because I didn't want him to go after them as well.
i once believed that indiana jones was a real person. i presented this theory to my brother and he informed me that he had been a real person but he had died long ago. so id often pray that god would take care of indiana jones and i would often look up to the sky and imagine him looking down and watching over me from heaven. im still kind of a movie nerd.
