Top Ten Best Movie Prequels

These are some of the most beloved prequels ever made. Also keep in mind sense I haven't seen a bunch of prequels, I'm ranking these on how much popularity they have (for the most part).

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Product Image

Am I the only one who likes this more then the original movies, including Empire Strikes Back?

Best Star wars prequel. Almost as good as the originals.

I don't care what people say. This is the best movie ever!

Easily the best of the Star Wars prequels

2 X-Men: First Class X-Men: First Class Product Image

Plain awesome - TriggerTrashKid

I loved but Wolverine Origins is better

Just awesome

3 Monsters University Monsters University Product Image

Nice - TriggerTrashKid

It can’t live up to the original, but this is a smart prequel with a powerful, unconventional message.

Monster Inc is more funny but this is Iconic

A monsterously fun film

4 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Product Image

It wasn't THAT good.

The best Disney SW movie by far

5 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Product Image

I haven't seen it yet - TriggerTrashKid

All Indiana Jones movies are great, except for the movie with Shia Labeouf

6 The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly Product Image

Outlaws? - TriggerTrashKid

Although the movie follows the adventures of the Man With No Name, he's not the central character of the film.
Set in New Mexico in 1862, the story follows the exploits and misadventures of a bandit named Tuco, played by Eli Wallach, trying to get revenge and money from his scam partner, the Man With No Name, whom he almost affectionately dubs "Blondie". Betrayal, slapstick, torture and violent bromance ensue as the two are forced to work together to find buried Confederate gold.
As a prequel, it's good. As a standalone film, it's a masterpiece. Dramatic, tense, powerful, emotional, beautifully crafted and side-splittingly hilarious.
It's not for everyone, but as my kind of film, it's perfect. A beautiful, rugged work of art. And Eli Wallach flawlessly burns up the screen in the role of a lifetime. This is his movie and he owns every second of his screentime. - SourNote2014

7 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Product Image

I like the Desolation of Smaug the best. The first one, nothing really happened other than Bilbo finding the ring. The last one was okay, but the second one is the best. The movies could have been a lot better, though.

This movie bored me but is not bad

Buddy, it was excellent. But Desolation of Smaug is the best in the Hobbit series. Battle of the Five Armies: an unnecessarily long disappointment.

All three were great

My aunt loves this series

8 Rise of the Planet of the Apes Rise of the Planet of the Apes Product Image

Good. - TriggerTrashKid

It rises above the rest of the movie with apes in the title. Especially when the Tim Burton remake.

This ISN'T a prequel. It's a remake - robertoiglesias271

9 Prometheus Prometheus Product Image

I loved it, just it's for adults. :( - TriggerTrashKid

Prequel all the way

Sorry this movie was bad but the final was quite awesome
