Do poor sequels make the original film worse?
I watched an interview with Quentin Tarantino, who remarked that The Matrix used to be his favorite movie, but that the sequels were so bad, he lowered his opinion of the original film.
I often tell people how good the original Rocky and First Blood movies were, because the follow-ups were so bad people forget.
Inversely, The Road Warrior made the movie Mad Max much more watchable.
Do you allow badly made sequels to effect your taste on the original films?
What movies does this bring to mind?
