Sure there are the occasional movies like Whiplash and Birdman that I love, but for every one of them there are 10 movies that absolutely suck and are complete wastes of time like Boyhood, Call Me By Your Name, Manchester by the Sea, and other things with zero appeal to me or most audiences. If I go watch a Marvel film, so far I am 100% guaranteed across 22 movies to really enjoy it. If I go watch an awards movie, Iíd say Iím 90% likely to hate it and 20% likely to think itís one of the worst movies of all time.

Iíll take my AAA video games and Hollywood blockbusters any day!
I don'y like artsy movies either.

But action movies like Marvel's are limited by the need to be measured based on profitability. For example, humor sells.

Now marvel movie's have too much humor. Same with plot, intrigue/mystery can't limit the action or good vs. bad dynamic for the special affects industry needs to make money so even when mystery could better an action movies plot, it is usually stripped down.

A lot of cats hated it when the film industry devoured the comics industry in the late nineties. Not saying there wasn't an issue with propaganda before (present & prevalent in the very early issues of the incredible one) but basically the media is part of the globalist propaganda wing for fascists & national socialists, their slaver sidekicks from the man-children & the spawn between the two.
