As much as audiences claim to love action scenes in television, most people still strongly prefer series that are well-written to those that are more flashy but have less developed characters and plots.
I tend to think this is true for movies as well, but I'm not so sure.

It's certainly true of movies intended to have a serious story. Imagine if a film like The Shawshank Redemption were all action and no character development...

It would've likely done $100 million instead of barely making back its production budget. But it's a great movie.

Unfortunately, for the most part folks go to theaters for "event" films. Films that have lots of action and special effects. Likely a byproduct of ticket prices going up, up, up. If they're going to pay, they want an experience they can't get at home.

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

^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.

No, what I mean is that you don't seem to get blockbusters with that kind of movie. Not these days, anyway.
