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 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!"

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.

My older brother told me that he was harry potters twin brother and every time I wrote a letter to one of the characters, he would write a letter in cursive in reply and stain it with tea to make it look "magical"

When I was younger, this girl my aunt used to baby-sit was my best friend. We were together every day. And our favorite movie was Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. Well, I had this little swing set in my yard, and we'd find a stuffed animal that had wings, like a bird or something, and we'd write a note saying we'd were at the Chocolate Factory. We thought we could swing to a cloud and find the Chocolate Factory, and use the flying stuffed animal to get us there!

When I was about four I was in day-care, and we always watched movies there. One of my favourite movies was Home Alone which the day care occasionally put on. One day I really wanted to watch the movie, except I didn't know the name. So I started yelling, ''I want to watch Kevin! I want to watch the Kevin movie!'' (Kevin is the main character in Home Alone). It took a few minutes for the day-care staff to figure me out.

My twin sister and I used to believe that we could do every dance move the people in Dirty Dancing did. I can't tell you how many times we about knocked each other out when we would try to through a leg on the other's shoulder like they did in the first dance scene.
