Sorry JackWhyte but your thesis just doesn't stick. The only thing you've proven so far is Hollywood blockbuster films are successful in China. A fact that can be said for pretty much every single part of the world.

You argue that simplified plot-lines and dialogue are now common in North American films in order to cater an international audience while still ignoring the fact these very same movies are the all-time highest grossing domestically. Made up facts about Asians hating subtitles aren't convincing.

There are few things you can actually point to the rise of CGI action films:

- Mega corporations such as Disney having the resources now to release a blockbuster film every fiscal quarter
- Advancements in digital cinematography causing traditional film making to be less popular
- Theatres up-selling enhanced experiences such as D-Box, 3D, UltraAVX for more profit
- The digital age of streaming forcing studios to create big visuals to get people to the box office.
- Rise in franchise/brand films due to their potential for multiple installments and merchandising.

The dumbing down of movies to appeal to wider audiences has existed since film making was a business. The fact is people want to see big spectacle regardless of what language or the part of the world you're in. It's more prevalent now because its more affordable and film special effects from 20 years ago can be seen on network television.

It's no Pulp Fiction (what is?), but Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is f'ing fantastic! The actors you mentioned put in possibly the best performances of their careers. Incredible use of music too. Loved it!
