    Directors were once the kings of Hollywood, but in the age of the franchise, they're increasingly interchangeable

    Film has long been considered a director’s medium, with cinematic auteurs presiding over movie sets like gods. But as high-profile filmmakers are being replaced on big-budget projects with increasing regularity, some say film is fast becoming more of a board-of-directors’ medium, especially in the critical realm of the franchise.

    If all they're going to make are shit movies, then they don't need talented, inspired, or otherwise extraordinary directors.

    Hollywood figured out that their audiences are dopes, so they stopped trying to satisfy them with intelligence.
