Amazing how Fast Five turned it around. I admit I never saw the first four movies and only started watching Five because it was less about cars and street racing, while it's more about.... family.

Would Star Trek count? The films started to get progressively worse until Bad Robot/J.J. Abrams got involved.

2, 4, 6, 8 were good. They took a nosedive in 9 and 10

Never read the books so I am not sure if the follow the same way but the Harry Potter movies were pretty bad at the start and the later ones were pretty decent.

Yeah, I meant to say the later films. The 80's star trek films are great with Wrath of Khan (IMO) being one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time.

First was great

2nd and 3rd were meh.

4th onwards has been pretty good IIRC.

I'd call it course correction.

I'd say this about the Captain America trilogy.

First Avenger: Crap
Winter Soldier: Pretty damn good
Civil War: Solid
