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

Origins Wolverine is boring, First Class will be a classic in the future!

I loved but Wolverine Origins is better

Plain awesome

Just awesome

3 Monsters University Monsters University Product Image

I think it's terrible. It's a rip off of Animal House and that's the plot.
It's so unnecessary and stupid to me.

Monster Inc is more funny but this is Iconic

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

A monsterously fun film

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

The best Disney SW movie by far

It wasn't THAT good.

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

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

I haven't seen it yet

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

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.

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.

My aunt loves this series

All three were great

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

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

Edit: It's a reboot. But I don't know why people are calling it a prequel.

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

9 Prometheus Prometheus Product Image

This was such a dumb movie. Too bad because it's so visually stunning.

Sorry this movie was bad but the final was quite awesome

Prequel all the way

Amazing movie. Just a little too complex and secretive for some viwers.
Also, IT'S NOT A PREQUEL IT'S A SPIN-OFF.

10 Red Dragon Red Dragon Product Image

The Contenders

11 The Godfather Part II The Godfather Part II Product Image

The first one is better

12 Alien: Covenant Alien: Covenant Product Image

Everyone hates this, except me.

13 Bumblebee Bumblebee Product Image

Its actually really good and reminds me of the iron giant

14 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Product Image
15 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Product Image

RoTS is better. This one rots.

Phanton Manace is better

16 Puss in Boots Puss in Boots Product Image

Thank god it's only Puss.

17 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Product Image

Not watched it yet, but seems good. I see fire.

18 The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies Product Image

All Hobbit movies are good.

19 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Product Image

Another one which I like

20 Minions Minions Product Image

Not that good, but funny.

21 Scooby Doo: The Mystery Begins Scooby Doo: The Mystery Begins Product Image

The only live-action scooby doo movie I can watch as many times and not get bored of it.

Blows the first two movies out of the water and was pretty solid itself.

I hate live action movies in animated series

Another fun live action Scooby Doo film

22 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning Product Image

I actually liked this now that I have actually watched it

23 Exorcist: The Beginning Exorcist: The Beginning Product Image
24 X-Men Origins: Wolverine X-Men Origins: Wolverine Product Image
25 Star Trek Star Trek Product Image
