The New Peasantries

Am I going crazy? I have always been the kid who loved big-budget, effects driven films so much, I would spend endless hours debating with so-called "academics" regarding what deeper meanings can be gleaned from such films as Clash of the Titans, Spiderman, any of the Star Treks, and even Return of the Sith.
