Is it art imitating life or the reverse? They get a lot of criticism but all they do is give the buyers what they want. Action films drive the train and get the best return and they can use CGI to control expenses. Hollywood is encapsulated in one example to me of the problem with it all being about the profits to cover for the losses on many of them. When Peter Jackson did Lord of the Rings, he used CGI but mostly depended on make up and actors to set his scenes and bring larger scenes to life. He got more money to do The Hobbit, stretched the story line to three films and spent more time on CGI and ruined the experience for me. It was obviously made for one reason, to make profits. The same man made both but the difference was the moneymen capitalizing on the popularity of his LOTR success. He left out story in the first and added it in the second, all to make more money. When profit is the motive, the final product is rarely good.
