Excellent point on the actors! Relatedly, I think ppl discuss sometimes how certain actors get typecast into certain roles, but it really does seem pretty extreme. How good of actors are they if they can't just show up and be told what role to play? I remember watching a bunch of Joaquin Phoenix movies in a row and realizing he seems pretty similar in each.

Maybe there need to be more movies where the actors don't even act that human at all. Instead of "getting in the head" of some kind of character, maybe just create a new imaginary "animal" and act that out? Maybe that's what star wars basically is?

I'm not in the movie industry at all and by no means a qualified critic. Just talking out loud..
