    Deepwater Horizon (2016)

    Another movie made based on the April 20, 2010's explosion in the oil industry (in the Gulf of Mexico on the BP-operated Macondo Prospect), worst oil spill in the US history or something, so they say. 11 men were killed and the rest survived. Teaches you not to play with shit and do your job carefully, why exactly the protocol exists. Thing can be destroyed with only one man's flaw. And you'll understand why they pay you a lot for s such dangerous job(s).

    Okay so they actually have a comparison thinggy in some articles here

    I personally enjoy the movie. Though it's a bonus if you have engineering background/knowledge in it because of the term/language they're using in it, who doesn't know, well, don't know then. I do think they tried to make people understand at least, movie gets better behind everything, after all the technical parts. For some reason a news about it (I guess due to the movie) emerges here. This movie actually has 7.5/10 ratings on IMDB at the moment. Well that being said, I never really knew anything about this incident until after the movie came out. ) I would watch it again though, just for the heck of it.
