Although the song is kinda weak compared to some of the better, classic Bond songs, I do still enjoy the Opening Credits for Moonraker. It's nowhere near that of The Spy Who Loved Me though, that's for sure.

For Your Eyes Only (Opening Credits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Id08vsWjT2c

As I point out in my review for For Your Eyes Only, this is the best part of the entire movie for me. One interesting fact that immediately caught my attention when I saw this in the theater was having the one singing the theme song appear in the Opening Credits. To my knowledge, this was the only time that's ever happened. Bravo Sheena Easton, you have made history.

Huh, don't recall that song. I believe you're correct about the singer in the credits.

The Living Daylights (Opening Credits)

Licence To Kill (Opening Credits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju_by-sC79c

No, I don't think these two Opening Credits are cool. The Living Daylights is actually pretty bad, add a sh*tty song to the mix and it fails, big time. The License To Kill Opening is slightly better and has a decent song, but it's far from what their best have been in the past. So, why am I posting these? Head to the next post and see, b*tches!

When I saw the GoldenEye opening, I was blown away by its awesomeness. They went back to the source material of some of the best sequences in Bond history. There is absolutely no flaw to be found in this. Plus, I love the song by Tina Turner. If there is one criticism of this sequence, its the PC nature of it. Gone are naked chicks for the most part and in are clothes. Grrrr!! Other than that, I can watch this over and over........

Tomorrow Never Dies (Opening Title)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDe1xi4tGUA

I love the song and the X-Ray look to the Opening Credits for sure. It does enough to distinguish itself as something new and fresh while paying tribute to the past.

Die Another Day (Opening Title)

For The World Is Not Enough, the Opening Credits was about the only good thing about the movie. Song was decent. As for Die Another Day, I totally dig the new look and I like how that actually incorporate some of the films narrative into the Opening. The song itself for me was just an 'okay' Madonna song, but as a Bond song, I don't think it works.

C a s i n o   Royale (Opening Credits)

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


Love, love, looooooooove the new look to the Opening Credits. It's f*cking awesome! It should actually be headlining this thread. What could possibly make this better? Oh, I dunno. Perhaps a kick ass song by Chris Cornell.

Despite Resident Evil: Retribution (#5) really falling down in the series, I do remember the opening credits... because of the slow mo reverse perspective. Of course after the credits roll, they do show the scene forward in real time and it takes all of a 20-30 seconds.

Quantum Of Solace (Opening Credits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4LpSzKnEtA

Although I like the song by itself and the art direction for this particular sequence was cool, it is nowhere as epic as the one seen in Royale.

A View To A Kill (Opening Credits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWVbVT3igdw

The sequence really doesn't belong in a thread called Cool Opening/Closing Credits at all. But I wanted to wrap up my Bond Marathon and point out how a horrible design element here, coupled with a sh*tty song can effectively derail a movie before it even begins. Worst. Bond. Opening. Credits. Ever.

I thought it was very interesting how the remake stuck pretty damn close to the Opening Credit sequence of the original.

Slumdog Millionaire End Credits

Very cool credit sequence and one that sure to keep everyone in the audience glued to their seats. I highly doubt anyone walked out once the movie was "over".
