The "pointless hollywood blockbuster" argument Can't Post

Now that the trailer has come out, this argument seems to have been really prevalent among skeptics. What I don't understand is, what's so bad about a film being a fun action film? If it still has character and story depth, and is engaging, does it really matter what kind of film it is? The same thing happened with Star Trek. What was once a quaint little TV-show became a gigantic blockbuster movie series. And you know what? Both those films were amazing.
