    in this one you have to wait 6 minutes for the titles:

    "Tokyo Godfathers"

    ...& this one is a 30 seconds masterpiece:

    "Memories"

    present day, present time:

    "Lain"

    Kamikaze Girls: Our hero gets hit by a cabbage truck.

    Ghost In The Shell 2. Pretty much a shoe-in for any discussion of movie goodness.

    Hell yes. Rounding out the trilogy in fantastic style.

    DESPERADO INTRO.
    IN MY OPINION, ONE OF STEVE BUSCEMIS BEST SCENES. AND IT SETS UP THE "MYTH" OF THE MARIACHI BEAUTIFULLY. ALL IN ALL A GREAT MOVIE, EXCEPT FOR THE LAST 20 MINUTES WHICH KIND OF FIZZLE OUT, LIKE RODRIGUEZ EITHER RAN OUT OF MONEY OR COULDN'T FIGURE OUT A WAY TO END IT PROPERLY.

    Edit: and if we're mentioning Ghost in the Shell, the pre-credit opening of the first movie is just teriffic. Even when it's dubbed. The credits themselves too, of course.

    The Batman opening credit sequence is one of the few that I delight in every time I see it and never skip... including watching the video post just now even though I know it well and truly by heart. The music, the dark retro-streamline aesthetic, the simple, powerful animation and the use of light and shadow... just perfect. Good pick, solario.

    Love the opening to "The Fall". Another recent favorite that comes to mind is "A Serious Man", which I had to upload to youtube myself.

    How can I forget the most iconic opening to the most iconic geeky show ever?

    Yes, Solario, yes!! I had the good fortune to be a child when Batman The Animated Series was on TV and I watched it ritually as only children can. I believe that my being a grown woman of good taste today can be partially attributed to that opening sequence.

    If allowed with all this TV talk! Was so stylish for a TV title sequence:

    The Fall. Beautiful opening.

    Kudos to those name-checking Saul Bass, Buckaroo Banzai, and the remake of Dawn of the Dead.

    Allow me to add:

    Se7en

    Once Upon a Time In the West

    Plus, a special nod to The Hangover. The end credits actually serve more than a humorous purpose - they tell us just what happened during the guys' blackout.

    Closing credits to The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

    Wes Anderson is an underappreciated director
