Why are movies so bad?

I saw Elysium this weekend. Two great stars, Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

The movie had a couple of interesting ideas, but they were in the trailer. Nothing to hold your attention or even entertain. I was fidgeting the whole time.

In contrast, the new episode of Breaking Bad was dramatic, lots of great action, incredible fine touches. Little extras that weren't required, but make it so much more interesting.

Why can't Hollywood make an action movie that also has something to entertain the mind?

Five minutes of Breaking Bad had more in it than 1.5 hours of Hollywood blockbuster.
