Nats mentioned the beginning to Up. I like a lot of other intros for many reasons, but Up is the one that had the most impact on me...completely heartbreaking, the best of storytelling without words.

I remember reading one of the many blog pages devoted to how much George Lucas sucks donkey balls, courtesy of his having become a relentless money trough pig. In the article in question, it compared the opening of the first released Star Wars movie to one of the later releases. Contrast:

First movie: credits roll, then this fucking enormous space battleship fills the screen with its looming, ominous presence, pursuing a hapless and inevitably doomed target.

Later movie: two blokes sitting at a table having a cup of tea.

Purely artistically, I find the intro of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to be sensational:

I'd like to add the continuous shot at the beginning of Spectre. Even if the remainder of the movie itself is just alright.

:smoke:
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.
