^Well, I'll be honest and say that I don't go to the theater that much. When I do see a movie, it's usually because my friends are going, too. If I don't like the film, I won't buy it when it comes out on DVD. I'm something of a dinosaur, I guess. It's just that I've always preferred to get a good story instead of explosions. Explosions don't require intelligence or creativity; however, explosions framed by a good story are incredibly entertaining, so I do appreciate action films, but I want the films to have a solid foundation.
Good writing is sustainable much more so than good special effects. That's probably why the original Star Wars
trilogy is better received than its prequel counterparts. There are a lot of things I like about the prequel films, but they don't compare to the first set, IMO.
