In the Beginning There Were. . . Opening Titles

Sometimes the best part of a movie is the first few minutes of opening titles, before the script kicks in and disappointment takes over.

These opening titles give you your first impression of a film and some of them feature wildy creative animation and motion graphics. Check out these great opening title sequences:

Movies You Should See has a discussion about the Best Opening Credit Sequences. From the discussion on that page comes Part 1 and Part 2 of a really nice video montage of some well known opening titles.

Find dozens of opening titles at Google Video Search including the opening of Bill Murray Classic Meatballs.

Main Title Heaven in a great blog that presents dozens of Main Titles from television series, including Automan and Hunter. Unfortunately many of the YouTube clips have been taken down due to terms of use violations, but many still remain for your enjoyment
