you know why, my hillbilly friend
its the balance between passion and mooolah.
these movies, ... in the end are ultimately about the moolah. that's why sequelitus came about. there are a lot of talented and passionate fans out there who could probably do a better job too.
something original has risk, and talent... but risk... risk limits the 'investment moolah'... and they need a reputable direktor... or its all indie, less investment moolah.
my suggestion is, look out for foreign/art house movies. here's the thing, every country/continent has a great film, even if but one.
watching foreign movies always gives u a fresh experience. try Operation Mekong, its a chinese film or look for Cold Eyes, korean. both of these are espionage. i've long forsaken mainstream movies, didnt watch most of the superhero movies. arthouse/foreign but well produced movies are the tasty medium rare steaks.
i could recommend more but idk your taste. hope theyre ok
