Yes, The Drinker is primarily into  the action-adventure-fantasy genres. If not always right, he is always entertaining.

Yeah, he's definitely got a good (if not sardonic) sense of humor; it would probably be fun to have a few pints with him at his local.

Yes, a good rant, but he's only referring to super-hero and/or "franchise" films.  Those are the most noticeable or pervasive of modern films, but they are certainly not all modern films.   That guy's videos always seem to cover "action/sci-fi/superhero/franchise" movies anyhow.  
As far back as the late '70s and into the '80s, critics and film-makers were asserting that "sequels", and the early Star Wars franchise were killing film-making.  Perhaps those things are a good reason why the industry is where it is now - what Francis Ford Coppola called "factory film-making".  
In a funny (almost self-destructive) Q&A session with the actor Anthony Mackie (Falcon from the Avengers series), he mentioned that most new films "suck" because mainstream Hollywood is largely "now making movies (only) for 16-year-olds and China."
To me, the worst thing is that those films and those industry practices do not leave space - or even consideration - for more creative or "deep" films to get made or released.  That seems to be more true now than when the "sequel/re-make/franchise" trends blossomed in the 1970s and '80s.

Mostly.

There are a couple of good counterexamples, all done by people who have done great original work:
True Grit
Dawn of the Dead*
Solaris

But yeah, mostly.

*OK, an exception. This is Zack Snyder's high water mark. Still better than the original.
