The TLDR of it all is that they are identical to many Travel / Tourism Board Promo or Commercials, much more so than any Cinematic Movie. They have the same look, same shots from B-Rolls, Drone shot, Timelapse, slomo and much more. I dunno why people have suddenly forgotten about these typical videos, but they exist for a long time already before the first so called Cinematic Travel Vlogs.

Here are just a few sample of Tourism Board Promo that are similar to todays Cinematic Travel Vlogs and you can search for many more on Youtube and Google.
