typically they just reflect what an uneducated, thoughtless and easily amused culture we are part of...
You are mixing up two different concepts.
First, there's hollywood box office performance in and of itself, which I agree that over a shorter time frame is hardly indicative of true talent (Twilight Saga - I'm looking at you). These one hit wonder - type performers flame out quickly.
Then there's track record. I challenge you to name a single actor/actress who has remained relevant for over a decade (ie: a real "track record) while continuing to star in shitty movies. There simply isn't.
If you are one of the very few in hollywood with a distinguished long-term track record of hit after hit after hit in radically different types of roles, then it only means one thing... you are one talented mother****er.
