filmsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was little I always thought that the actors loved each other in real life. I grew up miserable because I found out it wasn't true.
I used to believe that Ben Stiller and Will Ferell were the same person.
I believed that if you recoreded all the previews for a movie you could pice them al together and watch the entire thing.
When I was little I believed that Casper the ghost from the movie Casper was real. Because he turned into a hot guy when he temporarily came back to life at the end of the movie I had a huge crush on him. I used to believe I was in love with him and that someday we would meet and marry. I daydreamed about our wedding and everything!
when i was little i used to think that when you put a video into the vcr that it would somehow send a signal to the actors and they would preform it live everytime you watched the movie
I used to believe that when people died in movies, they really did die. Then i couldnt understand why they would reappear in another movie and die again.
When I was five and Lion King obsessed, I REFUSED to believe that Mufasa was dead, and I thought grown Simba was Mufasa, and grown Nala was Serabi (or whatever I forgot her name) and the rest of the plot was Simba got lost and they were looking for him, so at the end I thought Kiara was Simba. And I also thought Simba had dreamed the entire thing. (What?)
All this just 'cause I didn't want Simba's dad to die. AREN'T I NICE?
When I was little I used to believe that when movies portrayed an actor in many stages life, they started filming when the actor was younger and then resumed filming when the actor was grown up.
There's a scene in the movie "Herbie: Fully Loaded" where, for a single second, you can see Lindsay Lohan's bare shoulders and upper back as she changes clothes. I thought this qualified as nudity and was shocked that the film was rated G. It was long time before I realized it was possible for movies to have ACTUAL nudity.
Other examples include a moment in "Kangaroo Jack" where the camera lingers on the female lead's (completely covered) breasts - I just didn't realize it was possible for movie content to get more graphic than that and was bewildered that the movie got away with the PG rating.
When I was young there was a girl of 6 years old and she allways asked by watching the movies: " do they really kill all these people".
When people got killed on the big or little screen, I thought it was for real. When grown-ups were "tired of living", they would very naturally volunteer for that kind of thing.
when i was young, i had never seen A Nighmare on Elm Street and i didn't know that Freddy Krueger was the villain from that movie, i always just assumed that when people talked about Freddy Krueger they were talking about a keebler elf. i guess i thought this because Krueger and Keebler sound a bit alike, and i think there's a keebler elf named fred or something. anyway, so whenever someone talked about being scared to death of Freddy Krueger, i would laugh at them hysterically because i would always picture them being scared of a keebler elf. i believed this until i was 14 years old, when i went to a wax museum, and there was a wax figure of Freddy Krueger, and it said that he was the nighmare on elm st. villain and all, and then i understood why the other kids would look at me funny or run away whimpering when i laughed at them for being scared of him.
I used to believe that every time you watched a movie, the actors actually had to act it out again!
My uncle was delighted when he got a "Godfather" video for his birthday, and told my cousin, who was 9, that it was one of the best films ever. After my cousin went to bed, my uncle settled down to watch it. A few minutes in he heard the sound of a note being pushed under the living room door.
It was from my cousin, and read: "Oh yes? When are they going to start speaking English then?"
I used to think Satsuki (on My Neighbor Totoro) was a gay man that lived with Mai and her dad.
many moons ago (well, i'm not that old) i was at the cinema with a friends of mine and a trailer for a new film came on. after a few film clips it said "tom cruise", then some more film clips and "renee zellwigger", then a few more clips and "jerry maguire" and i turned to my friend and said "i've heard of the 1st two, but who's she?". sadly i hadn't realised that jerry maguire was the name of the film... this 'friend' has never let me live it down and bought me the video a few years back just to rub it in!
when i was little and when i go to the theaters i always think that there's someone on top of us acting and shooting the scine on the white board. I always wanted to go to the room to see the actors.
i used to believe that actors in the film actually worked on screen in the movie theatre as on a stage and they come out when the theatre gets empty.
i always thought that when i watched a movie, there were people behind my screen that were acting it out at the very moment for me.
I once went to watch a movie and saw the main hero die a tragic death. Thinking that he was dead for good, I started crying and created quite a scene. I coulndn't bear the fact that now he wont be able to make any more movies!
