    Wolverine and Mystique being played by the same actors kinda pushes it towards prequel. Especially as both are knowing nods to those who've seen the original films.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Mystique wasn't played by the same actress outside of an in-joke cameo.

    And wolverine's appearance was again more of an in-joke.

    Both cameos make no sense if it is a reboot. Go read my post again, although it was so short I felt sure this time you'd get it in a single try.

    I think it's somewhere in the realm of alternate reality in the same universe type comics bullshit, but it's definitely not a prequel in the narrative sense. It's a new story, not a previous chapter in the established one.

    Yes, they don't. It's similar to the DB5 from Goldfinger being in Skyfall. It doesn't make sense but it's just a joke basically and not to be dwelled on.

    I wouldn't class it as a prequel, more that some shit happened before the others took place.

    The cameos can still make sense if you ignore they used the same actors and just look at the characters.

    Yep OK fair enough. I can't think of another example of a good prequel, so I guess you're rig...TEMPLE OF DOOM.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Temple of Doom doesnt count because barely anyone knows its a prequel. It doesnt exactly advertise the fact and, like a bond film, they all stand apart as their own ripping yarns.

    Except the last one.

    It is a rare example of a good prequel, though.

    I'll take ToD as a good example, although Indy is proper Saturday Matinee story-telling stuff. Each episode is what it is and happens in isolation. The timeline is sort of irrelevant (let's ignore Crystal Skull).
  • Deleted user 10 December 2012 13:31:14
    Temple of Doom is a weird one. There's nothing really about it that makes it a prequel, it just happens to take place a couple of years earlier.

    Apparently, the X-Men films are the same continuity...

    Young Indiana Jones generally was pretty good.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

  • Deleted user 10 December 2012 13:34:20
    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is the only other good prequel.

    We found 2 out of how many?

    Godfather 2 has already been mentioned.

    To disappear up my own arsehole, Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of historical (and comedy spin off) prequels which incorporated recogniseable characterisations from earlier plays. Falstaff, for example.

    GF2 wasn't really though. It was a sequel with flashbacks.

    They're not flashbacks.

    Flashbacks from a guy who died in the first film?

    Is it a crime to suggest that Terminator: Salvation wasn't complete shit?

    Yes. It had barely any redeemable features.

    Get bent.

    Yes. But T2 would be an interesting shout.

    They could all be prequels in a closed loop time travel palava.

    Anyway, quite a few comics have good prequels.

    X-Men: The Hidden Years was an excellent prequel series.

    All the Terminator films take place in a loop in time. You can surely argue all of them after the first are prequels.

    And all BttF films, no doubt.

    In which case BttF 2.

    BttF doesn't loop in the same way.

    Until the Terminator franchise continues past the point where the first Terminator and Kyle Reece are sent back, they're all prequels (arguably). That is the initiation point in time of the Terminator narrative.
