The 10 Best Style-Over-Substance Movies

"One of the most common accusations made against genre movies, or in fact any movie that isn't either an arthouse favorite or Oscar bait, is that they're "style over substance." What critics mean when they use this expression is that the movie prioritizes its visuals over a perceived depth; films that prefer to dazzle the viewer with the virtues of their technical aspects than provoke thought on a societal or philosophical issue."
"That is not to say that there aren't movies that do get carried away with visuals and forget all the other important aspects of filmmaking, but there are several examples of movies that prove that, when done, style becomes the substance."
