Why are you still watching their movies. ... at least at the theaters

I haven't had cable or sat T.V. for 6 years, I do have an extensive movie collection though.

Most North American movies are cultural marxist garbage but there is so much more out there. What is referred to as "repertoire" movies are usually pretty good and have what OP doesn't find in jewed productions.

Fuck Hollywood, small time producers are way more talented because they rely on a well developed story instead of cheap CGI and empty action scenes as filler.

The last films from this decade from Hollyweird which I enjoyed were Hell or High Water and Cold in July. Apart from being woke garbage, virtually everything shat out by Cancertown this decade is, as you rightly say, entirely forgettable and simply not remotely entertaining. Other than old classics (Double Indemnity, The Shootist, Big Jake, Out of the Past, the Bogey/Bacall collaborations to name a few I have watched in the past few weeks), I've switched mostly to East Asian cinema. They do great action, thrillers and horror. I highly recommend the Detective Kaga series out of Japan if you like good murder mysteries. A bit melodramatic in parts, but very entertaining nonetheless, plus there's an innate morality and human decency in them which I no longer recognise in (((western))) media. I recommend starting with Wings of the Kirin.

In no particular order, some of the ones I've enjoyed.

Film Year Director Notes
Seven Samurai 1954 Akira Kurosawa It's a classic. Watch it.
High and Low 1963 Akira Kurosawa See above.
Ring 1998 Hideo Nakata Much better than the shitty US remake.
Spirited Away 2001 Hayao Miyazaki Former and current highest-grossing film in Japanese history. Released in China only recently, it blew Toy Story 4 out of the water in sales.
Battle Royale 2000 Kinji Fukasaku What Hunger Games tried (and failed) to be.
Kikujiro 1999 Takeshi Kitano
Your Name 2016 Makoto Shinkai Former highest-grossing film in Japanese history until Spirited Away reclaimed the spot after it's Chinese release this past week.
Audition 1999 Takeshi Miike Bloody, disturbing, but very well done horror/thriller.
Godzilla 1954 Ishiro Honda Spawned the longest running film franchise in history.
A Silent Voice 2016 Naoko Yamada One of the few films with a good dub.
Space Battleship Yamato 2010 Takashi Yamazaki Campy as hell, but I thought it was fun, so I included it.

It's anti SJW to have an arc. That would imply that they were not perfect in every way or not the one.

Dialogue requires difference of opinion or knowledge, and the will to bridge that gap.

Modern Hollywood cannot have that. All their characters are now more or less static, unless the background of an existing character requires them to show a montage of them turning into a superhero.

Because the dialog has to translate and be palliatible in at least eight languages/countries.
