Cool Opening/Closing Credits
« on: March 30, 2012, 08:07:08 am »
I had been thinking about this for awhile, and until last night, it was just thinking.

Post some of your favorite opening credits to movies. Or even some of the closing credits can be cool (I just kind of recall funny outtakes).

Anyway, I was blown away with the visuals to Opening of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

also impressed with Zombieland
The way they integrate the text in the scene is cool too

Having just watched Shoot 'Em Up a few days ago, the End Credits was actually still on my mind. Awesome stuff for sure.

It's a shame that no one has posted the End Credits for both Fast & Furious and Fast Five which have incredible sequences to close out the movies. Bah!! Lazy YouTube'rs

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Opening Title Sequence

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY4f_83t_rw

Sick, sick, sick! One of the best Title sequences I have ever seen. As great as it is, it really doesn't tie in with the rest of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Still pretty damn cool though. Reminds me of Tool or NIN.

UPDATE:

Just noticed that Mac posted this in the first post. Damn you Mac! Damn You!!!!!!!

The motion tracked Zombieland titles reminds me of the opening for Watchmen for some reason.  That was an opening that blew me away when I saw it.

I posted this link in the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo thread, it's a retrospective of David Fincher's opening sequences  I quite like his idea of the opening being a prologue and data dump, setting up everything you need to know without wasting the audience's time.

And while it doesn't accomplish that task, IMO, the opening for Casino Royale with the cards... I dug that.  And I dug the music too, felt like a fresh injection of life into a musty old franchise (that I honestly wasn't that connected to).

It's been more than a few years since I saw "Ultraviolet" but I remember thinking "if they remade Mallrats, THAT"S how they opening should be done."  Although I still have a problem with the stuck-in-the-6os superhero four-colour motif that comics are stuck in when they're shown on screen.  MEANWHILE... the opening for Sin City, with the comic panels with the actors' names, I like the idea but it was just not visually interesting.   I know Rob-Rod's a fast worker but there could be so many interesting things to do the second time around, maybe a take-off of Hitchcock/Saul Bass pastiche.  The trick would be making it look different from the rest of the movie.

Almost every Opening Credits relating to the Bond Films could qualify for this thread. Just sayin'.

Having just watched The Spy Who Loved Me, it's time to add one of the best and certainly one of my all time favorite Credit Scenes from a Bond film. I will most likely add each credit scene after going through my James Bond Marathon currently in effect.

Spider-Man 3 (Opening Credits)

I meant to post these a couple of days ago. Better late than never. I like all 3 openings, particularly that of 2 & 3 because it's basically used as a "recap" in an ingenious way instead of what a typical serialize TV show uses with their "Previously on....." Of the 3, I absolutely love 2 because it uses artwork from the amazing Alex Ross, who is a god among gods in the art world.
