    As the budget on these sequels goes up, the vigor and creativity seems to decline proportionately. It happened with the James Bond movies, and virtually every other series where an initial success is converted into a money making formula. Do you critics have some kind of mathematical equation that predicts the point at which the declining creativity curve intersects with the rising budget curve?
