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.
