    Right now I have Apocalypse Now in mind.

    But there's plenty of amazing opening scene in movie.

    Morrrison's voice in this version of The End is quite unique, really high piched compared to original CD mix or remaster.

    I'm a huge fan of the Doors, I still wonder where they took the record, because it's not the one released on the eponym album.

    I saw that movie.

    I can't think of any movie I'd want to watch 6 times

    This by far.



    That's the John Barry 7 performing the theme and, yes, Oliver Reed in the check shirt.

    I choose the opening scene from the best western movie ever made to me.

    Once upon a time in the west.

    "Enter the Void" is notable for the stylized fonts in it's opening credit sequence:

    (It doesn't get too interesting until about 1:03)

    Didn't know Jeunet was known oversea for something else than the marvelous Alien resurrection.

    When I was a child, I was in love with Audrey Tautou, then I discovered Paris and parisienne girl.

    And things were not the same as the movie ahah.

    Too many classics to list -- but here's one of recent vintage. Killer Jon Spencer track as well!

    Not the opening scene, but pretty close, and I think this guy could qualify for being maybe tougher and meaner than any of those sissy boy martial arts heroes. Not necessarily a role model, well maybe for some people.
