In all the little life we have, we don’t always get to experience everything. There are things and situations that have been presented to us by movies. Movies have painted a picture for a lot of things giving us a mild expectation of what it might look like in RL. Watching a spy catch a criminal, seeing someone perform surgery in the middle of the road or various courtroom scenes are some of them. Although we know these situations have been dramatized for the purpose of entertainment we enjoy and sometimes deem them to be real.

Many of us may never have visited an actual court but we know and expect it to be some way. Seeing how a court function on screen as compared to reality has to be one of the classic examples of the false imagery that various movies have developed over the years.
