Yeah bad CGI can really mess a movie over long term, that's why I leads prefer the practical. Look at a film like John Carpenters the Thing, it still looks amazing.
Or even just compare some of the FX in the old and new versions of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Freddy popping out the wall above the head looks amazing in the practical effect in 1984. In the 2010 version it's CGI and it looks awful.
