The 10 Best Movie Prequels of All Time
8. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Who couldn’t think more Indiana Jones was a good idea? Well, maybe plenty of people after the disappointment that was Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; but back in the Eighties, when Harrison Ford wasn’t gray, things were different. Temple of Doom was the sequel to the first hit movie, but was set before the adventurer had acquired the scar on his chin and was experienced enough to carry a gun at all times to deal with aggressive swordsmen. While not quite as good as Raiders of the Lost Ark, it had a number of very memorable moments (the insects crawling over Willie; the dinner scene; the heart-ripping, Kali-worshiping bad guy, Mola Ram) and added plenty more whip-cracking action to the franchise. Are we the only folks who think the karate-kicking Short Round is just awesome?
