    When the writers get free rein in the opening credits.....


    A good opening creates interest, & sets the stage without giving up to much....

    Might not be a movie, but for some reason I really like the intro to True blood, it just catches the series perfect I think.

    For TV shows, my favorite openings of all time are in Breaking Bad.
    Each one is new, a visual feast, & integral to the story.
    Creepy (pun intended)....

    James Horner's score is integral.
    This is just after the credits end...

    It looks outdated now, but at the time it was really impressive.

    I tried to see it, but just couldn't get into it. Despite it having gotten very good reviews

    Since the days of huge screens are long past the true scope of that beginning can no longer be fully appreciated. Watching it on my monitor it does not awe at all.

    I wonder how it would work with VR goggles.

    It's supposed to be disturbing.
    And it succeeds.
