Well i remember ever since i was a little kid i used to watch movies at the cinema with my mum and every so often she would take me to watch it again cause i liked it so much.
So anyway were watching the movie again and at a certain point i look to my mum and im like .........that was never part of the movie when i watched it on the first time and she said the exact same...i thought it was just me forgetting the story line but no the whole movie changed.
im not crazy its happened many times and people who have watched the movie/show have agreed and are like :| wow that is weird..

change in time line? or just one messed up coincidence over and over?
opinion please!

Hiya. No need to go jumping off into 'timelines.' Movies can have different edits for different markets. Leon for example...was very different in the US to the European version. Censorship has also changed so different cuts are shown. Childhood memories are as accurate as adult ones...not very! I've got a few crystal clear memories as a kid that I 100% know have never happened. Forget about it

Watch the movie Revolver, then rewatch it. i trust you , it will happen again.


Its basically you putting it all together. rewatching it allows you too look out for things you did not before.

I won't discourage you but recently we had a thread floating around somewere about celebs who were dead and now are alive not sure if you saw it but pretty much conclusion seemed like "history changes"

Any movie has to be re-edited for TV, but maybe you are talking about seeing repeats in the cinema.

Books can do the same.

Audios can be the same. I have made it a rule to see a movie or read or listen at least twice for this very reason.

I'm going to go with the different edits theory. You'll notice you can go to any video store and get a "Director's cut" of many movies. TV stations may occassionally edit out portions of movies to make them fit into programming slots more easily, or to reduce profanity. When re-editing for different audiences across cultural lines, sometimes these edits can be quite severe, sometimes even changing the names of movies, the numbering of sequels, or the number of episodes in a series.

My own favorite example of this in action is the movies Sneakers. My father had a copy in which at the end where the team is making "requests" of the US government, one of them says that he never wants to pay taxes again and the agent agrees to make it happen. This sequence is cut out of some versions.

I felt drawn to this post for some reason. I was trying to find Philadelphia Experiment and decided to go for a troll


I have had that happen to me way to many times. I have had new characters appear. Hell I know for a fact star wars had a different star then one of the ones I saw in it later at 28. I have found it completely annoying.

It is part of what has led me on a search for knowledge. Part of my own quest for explanations come from this. I have a theory about it but I have no proof.

Let me ask you this, Have you had people and instances happen the same as the movies?

I have done a little research. I have one theory but it will over my time at this site become my catch all. Unfortunately I want it to be something else during my time here.

I am with you on this one. Your brain can't process every single detail in a movie and even a tiny distraction will be enough to cause you to miss a segment of the movie that is noticed with the second viewing.

I am leaning towards just missing a detail or two out from the first watch, but with the second you are in a better position to know what is happening generally so specifics may show themselves more clearly.

I have recently watched Transformers Revenge of the Fallen 3 times since Christmas. Every time, I notice something different and it changes my perception of the overall story and because I know a certain scene pretty well, any little differences stand out better. As someone else said, I make a point of watching things several times, just so you can soak up the every detail.

I wish something WOULD happen with Transformers... Maybe like editing out Christian Bale. He was the WORST actor in that whole movie.

I'm also going to go with the "different edits" theory.

I will give you some very clear examples of this in Warner Bros Looney Toons cartoons.

There are a few Bugs Bunny cartoons in which he races a tortoise. In one of them, he develops a metal suit that resembles a turtle shell that will help him win the race. This episode also includes a number of other tough looking bunnies who claim they are going to make sure Bug Bunny wins the race. At the end of the episode, they attack Bugs thinking he is the tortoise. He finally pulls off the suit to show them the error of their ways. They then say "Ohhhh, now he tells us". The episode usually ends here. They then pull out revolvers and shoot themselves in the head. END. That final suicide scene is not always shown on tv.

There is another cartoon with Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny. Elmer Fudd proceeds to fall asleep. Bugs Bunny finds him and invades his dream by consuming a large sleeping pill. This scene has been cut out at times.

You can see both episodes here: www.youtube.com...

and here: www.youtube.com...

There was one time I experienced something like what you mentioned. I saw The 6th Sense in the movie theater. When I saw it again on TV, the ending was very different from what I remembered.

Christian Bale wasn't in Transformers, so not sure what you were watching!

I suspect, although I am not sure how, you have confused Terminator:Salvation (a pretty poor movie) with Transformers ROTF (an excellent movie).

Maybe you should watch it AGAIN a fourth time, you could have missed his part.





Christian Bale too funny.


On topic it could also simply be a perspective thing. I know that with age when re watching movies I had seen in my youth things change. I highly doubt we are simply talking about versions or simple edit jobs here. My interests have changed and therefore I noticed subtle nuances I had missed before.

This is common these days with the advent of Digital Enhancement.

I'm a big fan of metal videos, and it seems about once or twice a month, the videos I watch are quite a bit different.

This helps maintain interest for peoples in the same situation as the one discussed: Multiple Views.

Artists that I watch frequently encourage it, if it's within the parameters the labels define.
Slipknot, Black Label Society, and Mushroomhead are good examples. Their videos are re-edited, sound enhanced, and a few lyrics are altered to change up the pace.
'Sun Doesn't Rise' by Mushroomhead is a real good example of this, because the initial video was parse, technicolor, with intermittent frame-outs. Now, the tempo is paced, and the digital effects are smoother, and it seems to keep adapting.

It's all about getting you back in.
