Movie Prequel Infographic SR Geek Picks: Middle Aged Ninja Turtles, C 3PO Raps, Live Action Recess & More!

Some of the most anticipated films of any year are prequels rather than sequels, like this year’s Monsters University. After all, haven’t you wondered why Monstropolis residents are scared of children or how our favorite monsters got to be scarers? Just like sequels, some of these movies can be a satisfying two-hour ride that answers all our questions while some are a waste of those two hours!

  1. I have no idea who Chris Kluwe is but I have that same shirt. Awesome.

  2. Still not sold on the new whose line… :( too much time has pasted… And ne drew isn’t the host.

    • Yeah, I haven’t seen any of the new ones either, not sure if I will. But have to say, Maggie Q is HAAAWWWTTT.

    • Yeah, that woman hosted the Ubisoft conference at E3 the past couple of years and she is beyond annoying. As long as the cast themselves still has that magic I don’t mind.

  3. …I can imagine the turtles , with walkers instead of weapons…
