We droids are made to suffer; it's are lot in life.
Like many fans, it was my favorite movie of the prequel trilogy.
However, if I had my way, there is one thing that would have been different about it: Anakin would not have been given his Sith name in the movie.

  Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist - Rotten Tomatoes
• Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist at IGN
• Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist at AskMen
Schrader's Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist may be slightly more literate than Harlin's dopey schlockfest, but this deadly dull and pretentious film is ultimately just as bad.

  The Mavens' Word of the Day
Prequel means, as most people know by now, 'a sequel to a film, play, or piece of fiction whose events precede those portrayed in the original work'.
The word got a lot of attention in the late 1970s as plans for a sequel to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were being discussed--it was thought difficult to have a sequel to a film in which the two main characters are slaughtered in a hail of gunfire in the last scene.
In 1977 the Silmarillion was viewed as a prequel to Lord of the Rings (with coinage of the word attributed to J.R.R. Tolkien).

  Prequel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This film is both sequel and prequel, since it intercuts the further story of the Corleone mafia family under the leadership of Michael Corleone with the story of his father Vito Corleone in his youth.
Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia is The Magician's Nephew, a prequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which was written first.
This is contrary to the term's original meaning, which defines a prequel as a type of sequel, not the converse of a sequel.

But even though prequels feature characters and situations with which the public is already familiar, they aren't guaranteed winners at the box office.
According to Chernoff, fans enjoy it when a prequel incorporates a pre-existing story element in a clever way, since they are rewarded for their knowledge.
If a prequel messes with continuity, the fan base is alienated – something that has to be avoided at all costs in the age of the internet.

 Ju-On: The Prequel (JAPAN 2000)
Like the many sequels that would follow, Ju-on: The Prequel is divided into numerous vignettes, all of which add up to tell the tragic story of a dysfunctional family, their eerie haunted house, and the killer curse that befalls anyone who enters.
Although there are many interconnecting stories, the heart of Ju-on: The Prequel lies in its tale of young Toshio Saeki (Ryota Koyama; the role would be played by Yuya Ozeki in later films), a young boy who has been missing from school for quite a few days.
In fact, there are plenty of creepy thrills and unsettling atmosphere to discover in Ju-on: The Prequel, although some may find the inevitability of the film's curse a bit unsettling; namely, everyone who comes in contact with the house ends up dead, disappeared, or hospitalized.

 Offensive 'Exorcist' prequel fails to scare up anything worthwhile - The Boston Globe
But if you're looking for groundbreaking badness, you needn't look much further than the new "Exorcist" prequel, which is one interminably grisly waste.
Schrader, in addition to having written "Taxi Driver" and directed movies such as "Affliction" and "Auto Focus," is also the author of an astute book on transcendentalism in the work of three non-American directors.
Needless to say, the studio eventually nixed Schrader's version of this prequel, which I imagine was heavy on the academic ideas and low on scenes shot through the holes in half-eaten corpses.

 'Chainsaw' prequel is a cut below - The Boston Globe
He never quite made it into the top tier of slasher-movie killers (Jason, Freddy, and Michael), so it doesn't come as a surprise when we see him angrily hack up beef in the local slaughterhouse.
And especially not when we see him driving a chainsaw clean through the pretty boy he's always wanted to be.
While intended to be a prequel to the remake, this is basically a remake of the remake.

 Trendspotting - Prequel Panic
Direct to video animated prequels have silently been released for films as recent as Van Helsing and The Chronicles of Riddick, but again not living up to the promise of the original movies.
In fact, the television series “Enterprise” was supposed to act as a prequel for the other Star Trek series, and that has worked so well the powers that be (including Berman) abandoned that concept and seemingly turned the show into a time travel saga, presumably trying to capture some of Scott Bakula’s “Quantum Leap” success.
From Bill’s background in an animated prequel to Kill Bill to a twice filmed but yet to be seen preface to The Exorcist, everyone feels the need to explain the backstory of popular characters and stories.

 Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist Movie Review (2005) from Channel 4 Film
In this case, that studio is Morgan Creek, where the suits decided they didn't like Paul Schrader's vision for an Exorcist prequel, so scrapped it in favour of a new take from Renny Harlin.
Schrader doesn't have an entirely clean record, and an Exorcist prequel was never his baby anyway.
The veteran filmmaker, former Scorsese collaborator, writer-director of such films as American Gigolo and Affliction and director of 2002's Auto Focus was effectively brought on as a jobbing director.

Hollywood is fond of remakes, but this prequel — the fourth in the series of Exorcist films — was discarded and remade before it was even released.
The bedevilment doesn't end there: Its original director died, its next director was fired, and its final director was struck by a car during the shoot.
A series of directors were approached to shoot new scenes that might punch-up the scare factor.

 Amazon.com: New Spring (A Wheel of Time Prequel Novel): Books: Robert Jordan   (Site not responding. Last check: )
There are flashes aplenty of the RJ we saw in the first 5 WOT books and I do wish he had spent more time on the Aiel war (yes, I know, the story has to start somewhere after all!) and perhaps some discussion between the Accepted on their preferred Ajah.
Jordan started out realeasing a WOT book every year, and that's not unreasonable for a trilogy, but for a series of 10+ (nobody knows how many it will be), that's simply not ok. Even worse though, it started to stretch out to 2 years between books, and now even 3 years in some cases.
This prequel follows Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche during their time as Accepted in the White Tower, and also the first few months of their time as full Aes Sedai.

It didn't matter that the end result was little more than a shameless cash-in that didn't have half the charm of the original: the prequel was born.
You could hardly call George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequels throwaway cash-ins, but you'd be hard pressed to say anything complimentary about them, either.
Presumably because it's easier to resurrect the dead in a prequel than a sequel (unless of course, you're talking about the "Halloween" or "Friday the 13th" franchises).
