I like insidious characters who are always plotting.

Like Hugo Drax.

If your plot sucks, you movie will most likely suck.

Well naturally. But I was referring to films that emphasis one element over the other.

For example, ROCKY I would be more character driven while ROCKY IV would be more plot driven.

Plot driven, but it better have some damn good characters. I can't stand those movies about following people around while they discover themselves. Some hijinks damn well better ensue.

if the nun did the murder then it would be character driven.

I prefer to see movies where the $150 million is well-spent. So it better have at least 1 or 2 actors I love and/or lots of actiony set pieces.
