for an explicit example of how the Intangible Sludge has become standardized, look no further than a season 1 dexter screencap & a dexter: new blood screencap (pls do not @ me with "but he's not in miami anymore")

Why has this look become so standardized? It hurts my eyes and brain.

digital cameras with insane dynamic range + LED light + fix it in post. These things arent inherently bad but its made a lot of people, especially younger DPs sloppy. Haze the room out, shoot it in LOG, end up liking the LOG look, forget to add the colors back in. Sludge

Is this why it's become increasingly difficult for phone cams to take good moon pictures despite being technically better?

no it's more that they actually aren't technically better. With phone cameras no matter what they do you're always still limited by sensor size and lenses. For a good moon shot you need a very long lens

But how come older phones could take moon pictures with at least basic eye-level detail instead of shiny blobs? (thanks btw)
