Movie making is an art, a science, and a feat of pure magic. 
 
There are hundreds of crew members, hundreds (sometimes thousands) of post production artists (editors, CGI, other VFX sound etc), not to mention all of the producers and people with director in their title (assistant directors, second unit directors, etc.) that have to get things just right to bring those special moments streaming by at 24fps.
