"Terminator 2"

"The Matrix.

That trinity scene really kicked things off"

 

"Super Troopers. I’ve seen the opening hundreds of times, and the rest of the move maybe 5."

“I believe in America.”"

 

"The Dark Knight bank heist scene"

"The Lion King, it always gives me goosebumps."

 

"Baby Driver"

 

"Scream. When the “star” of the movie is murdered, epic"

 

"A new hope.

After the title crawl, you can clearly see who the good and bad guys are. The star destroyer flying over seems to go on forever, and you realize right away that you don’t f@#k with the empire

Then after the stormtroopers shoot up the rebels, darth vader makes his first ever appearance. One of the most iconic villians of all time, this intro cemented star wars in history"

"Wall-E is a masterpiece start to finish, but the world building they do in the opening while establishing the character and overall tone is just incredible."

 

"Raiders of the Lost Ark. It sets the tone for the film, it has more than one twist, and is just generally entertaining. It’s a little slow for the first two minutes but worth the watch."

 

"Goodfellas. Brutally shooting and stabbing the guy in the trunk and then smash cutting to the gangster monologue perfectly sets the tone of the film"

 

"If we’re counting the first thing the audience sees, the opening credits to Lord of War tells its own story in a low key horrifying way."

"28 weeks later"

 

"Raising Arizona is pretty great"

 

"It’s been a while so I’m not sure if it is actually the opening scene or just very early in the movie, but the storming the beach scene in saving private Ryan is outstanding."

 

"Contact.

Starting at Earth, then panning out of the solar system, then the galaxy, then out to the edge of the universe, all while listening to older and older radio transmissions. Genius."

"People are always asking me if I know Tyler Durden.

3 Minutes. This is it. Ground Zero. Would you like to say a few words to mark the occasion?"

I shouldn't talk about this.

#19 The opening scene is the old man visiting the cemetery where he remembers the beach landing and the events leading up to the battle in the town, which makes no senese because Ryan wasn't there.
He was a paratrooper who dropped further inland and met the other soldiers days later.

“The Art of Racing in the Rain” Opening scene is sad and the whole movie is told in flashback leading up to the opening scene.

"The Other Guys" Killing off Samuel Jackson and Dwayne Johnson at the beginning of the movie - I knew it was going to be good.
