Cool title sequences

04.16.2008
Sometimes a movie's opening credits and title sequence are purely functional: name of movie, actors and filmmakers, done. Other times (as with the Bond series) it takes on a life of its own and becomes a small work of art.

The aptly named site ART OF THE TITLE collects many of these particularly impressive intro segments, including such excellent specimens as FIGHT CLUB, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, THE SHINING, SAHARA, ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, DELICATESSEN, SEVEN, THE KINGDOM and U TURN.

The site isn't quite comprehensive -- among the notable omissions is the single-take tracking shot that opens THE PLAYER -- but it's a nifty group (which gets extra credit for including the supergoofy UK series GARTH MARENGHI'S DARKPLACE). Some of my own faves:

Extra Tidbit: Some famous movies with no opening credits: UNFORGIVEN, THE MATRIX, OCEAN'S 11, GHOSTBUSTERS, ROBOCOP, CITIZEN KANE and LORD OF THE RINGS.
