Well there are certainly cross-overs since the The Magnificent Seven was an adaption of the Seven Samurai and was most influential.

I agree with you that production value replaced plot, likewise most of my favorite Sci-Fis are from the 70s and 80s.

That's because of the market needs of cinema productions to appeal to a wider and "easier" audience, in order to have a guarantied return of investment.

As a result do TV and streaming productions often offer much better plots nowadays.
