I think that it is very much a personal preference as I enjoy both short and long stories, but I can very much live without the shaky-cam. It's become a naff cliche. Now if they could get people to direct true science fiction films with the skill, seriousness and gravitas of Ang Lee's direction of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" I'd be a happy camper.
It is better either to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.
Pythagoras (582 BC - 507 BC)
