Movie is ridiculous, so are most "magic users", especially those who try using only mystical powers without thinking logically.

But if you try to think outside the box for a moment, think of your mind as a powerfull biological computer you may get interesting results. Personality becomes OS, subconsciousness - OS kernel, nerves in rest of your body - something like /dev in linux, mental sickness - corrupted files or computer virus, possesion - hacker brake in.
And we do know what skilled technician or even so called power user can do with his or her computer... optimizing, tweaking, fixing bugs and errors...

Thought I was the only person that thought like, trouble is in this day and age unless you go round lying to yourself and putting on an act no one likes you.

Been there, seen that, nowdays its "they may not like me, but they must respect me". Either due to who i am or because of what i can do to them.

You can even cure (or create) illnesses and physical reactions (see the placebo effect and homoeopathy for example).
And see and speak with ghosts or a god, or a devil, or Elvis. All imaginary of course, but it's real to the person imagining it.
Or be 100% confident you heard three gun shots as a witness when there was in fact only one. Which is what makes most eyewitness testimony next to useless.
