#35 In the beginning, there was money

As most of you know, a couple of years ago, George Lucas released another Star Wars movie. Only, instead of another sequel to the holy trilogy, this one was a prequel, a movie that comes before the others. Hollywood, being the monkey-see, monkey-do folks that they are, have rushed to make all sorts of prequels; some advised and some not. Thanks to many of my loyal readers who sent them in, I have been able to compile a list of prequels that will be coming to a theater near you. I have the answers listed below, but see how many of the movies you can tell what the prequel is for. Give yourself 10 cool points for fifteen correct without looking, and 50 cool points for twenty-five without a peek. If you get all thirty, you are not doing enough with your life.

See ya on the open trail,
