oops, you're absolutely correct!

i love it too, and i am not annoyed by its anthropomorphisms (or "Earthisms")!
there, they seem to serve a different purpose - every story is a parable on human society.
plus, one simply cannot beat jean-luc picard.

if you mean that there's loads of films, but most of them just aren't very good - i agree.
why would that be?
maybe it isn't so long ago that CGI technology caught up with the grand visions some authors have?
I would love to see another Solaris remake, or an iain m banks novel.

i seem to remember that some of my favorite sci-fi authors actively refused to give permission to make their books into movies.

there's also something i have noticed about so-called-hollywood story writing:
one would think that getting your hands on a good, solid story would not be the most expensive part of a modern movie production, yet it often seems that those are the cheapest, full of inconsistencies and stretching the suspension of disbelief to yet another record almost-breaking-point.

Exactly what I meant. Moon was hailed as being clever and fresh, I was all meh. Same with Ex Machina, though they both had some really cool ideas, cinematography, dialog, etc...

I thought Cloud Atlas was damn good, audiences didn't. I haven't seen Jupiter Ascending, everything I've read about it says it's horrible.

Let's see what happens with the reboot of Dune...

I haven't read any Sci-Fi in decades, I bet a lot of viewers do, though, so there's that whole dynamic of fan feedback and movies playing to fans (cough, super hero films, Star Wars reboot, Star Trek reboot).
