Science fiction is in fact one of the most creative literary genres around. The best of sci-fi is filled with meditations on what's "out there," what makes us human, how technology is used and how it is changing us. It takes up issues of race, sexuality and quite literally everything else under the sun. It is essentially about ideas, not action, and that's the problem, as far as Hollywood is concerned.

I have a similar theory on how Michael Jackson and Thriller ruined modern music.
I think the money made on that album changed the way the music industry approached what types of artists to record. No longer were the artists/musicians recording just albums, music videos/performances were just as important if not more important in the overall money making aspect.
You didn't have to be as talented as before, if you look good, sound good (and in some cases not even necessary) we can make money cheaper/faster etc
