Hate of Mike aldred seems crazy, his style is so energetic and fun. But what you're saying rings true, they want the comics to look like the movies, it looks polished, but it can become a bit too standardised because of that, some of the character is lost.
I read the start of his arc with "Everything dies" and it did something really cool with marvels illuminati who had before hand been just a plot device, they are then thrown into an unpleasant complex moral problem.
At this point I will say I am not an event fan, I've always found them sensational with little lasting change or dramatic impact and that they just derail existing not only one existing title, but several to push a sales up for a period.
So I read infinity expecting the same thing to happen and was pleasantly surprised: The main narrative not only continued to develop but didn't seem to have been pushed out or changed to accommodate this. It has its big-fights but it also has some great sci-fi.
Now it probably pulled other peoples titles in and did exactly what I said about derailing them, but I wasn't reading those titles so it didn't bother me.
