It's amazing to think of all the inventions and advancements we've seen over the course of time.

Smart phones, automated check out machines, electric powered cars.

In this modern age of technology and science, it's rare for a year to go by without a major new invention.

One can only assume it will only be a matter of years, months, or even days when these wishes become a reality.

Or at least that people are hard at work in hopes of doing so.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.
