In the adjusted for inflation list every “film” in the top 50 biggest all time budgets in either bad or very bad. Is there any hope that a gigantic budget will ever be allotted to an intelligent plot?

I like Spiderman 2 and the Harry Potter movie has a cool aesthetic (not a great film though).

I think that it's because the more expensive the film is, the more producers you have in control of the outcome to get the best ROI on the movie. That leads them to catering to the lowest common denominator and making middling yet entertaining movies because making something exceptional typically requires some risk taking.

Just took a look at the top 100

It bodes ill for a list when Van Helsing is easily the best movie on it

Eh, The Social Network presents itself as something greater than a basic biopic. Spiderman 2's just a solid action flick with no such pretensions.

A massive chunk of those budgets is salaries. Especially sequels where the actors can demand a lot more.

Salaries include residuals.
