MoviesAs I mentioned on the show the other day, I absolutely had a ball with the #unseenprequels hashtag that ran rampant for a few days. What was it? Folks were coming up with names of prequels that do not exist. It turned into mostly puns and silliness. Hey, at 1am reading through Twitter posts, it was high comedy! 🙂

My list of the best, worst and a few in-between are below. I will add the #unseenprequel titles that I came up with as well. My own comments are in parenthesis next to the title. I try to give credit to the best unseen prequel titles where I can. Although it is true that for most titles, there were likely ten, hundreds or even thousands of people that came up with the same or similar titles, I give credit to the authors that either I saw first or I saw retweeted the most.

Worst #unseenprequel Titles

Some of these titles are too obvious to be worthy of any praise, but most are just plain bad. Some are so bad that the authors should be banned from the internet! Bans are noted in red.

  • Smoldering Saddles (Banned!)
  • The Normal Lebowski (No ban, but close…)
  • Star Trek: The Previous Generation (Banned!)
  • Star Peace (Banned!)
  • Evening of the Night Before of the Dead (Banned!)
  • W-Men (Banned!)
  • W-Files (No ban, the “W” almost works for me here. Still, this is in the bottom of the pile.)
  • 299 (No ban, just too obvious to rate well.)
  • Thursday the 12th (No ban, same as above, too obvious.)
  • 10,001 BC (Too obvious, but you do need to understand how BC dates work.)

Best #unseenprequels Titles

  • @Idanders: The Construction Site on the River Kwai
  • @Bryce1984: The Lambs That Wouldn’t Shut Up
  • @blogdiva: Second-Base and The City
  • @KagroX: Still Plenty of Mohicans
  • @defconqueso: Conceived on the 4th of October  (I thought this was super clever!)
  • @StevenE_8: Everyone gets along on The Bounty
  • @weaselbacon: The Bourne Penultimatum
  • @ZenDeHoag: Zack and Miri Take a Polaroid of a Clumsy Backseat Handjob (My personal favorite)

My list of #unseenprequel Titles

  • Indiana Jones and the Diaper of Doom (Banned!Yes, I would get banned for this awful attempt.)
  • Salem’s Unincorporated Land (I do not think a ban is in order, but this is still a lame attempt.)
  • Apocalypse Any Time Now… (I really liked this one.)
  • We Have a Few Starfighters Left (This is a top notch attempt, if I do say so myself!)
  • Has Anyone Seen Red October? (This is worthy of a retweet!)
