What he's basically saying is that the writers of the movie assume that the audience will be comprised only of braindead, drooling morons, and so they've written all the characters to likewise be brain-dead, drooling morons - you know, so the dumbasses in the audience can relate to them better.
Josh, who directed that flick? ...Ridley Scott, that's who. ...He invented these characters, and gave them life of their own. ...Once, there was a script, and a vision, and with drawings, and all put together from the hands of a visionary, a filmmaker, a movie director with an eye for compositions, a cameraman.
I totally understand what you're saying, and have no problem whatsoever with it; it's your own vision, yours only as a viewer, a critic, a human being who feels and reacts to what he sees.
Your vision is unique, and mainly your own. You can try to communicate it, and you can try to convince us all; good luck I'd say to you, because me too I have my own vision...comprende amigo.
