Yes it made me cry!
Saving Private Ryan.
couldn't agree more.
That was a good movie
Very intense, absolutely!
oh! hell yeah, i agree...that's real life war!!
Are you sure about that ? The opening scene of a 70+ year old PVT Ryan visiting the D-day memorial with his family pawing at him as he reflects on the war. .what was so awesome about that ?
R u sure? Read my first reply here
Read my first reply to this answer
But that's not the opening scene. Read my first reply here.
I was meaning the war scene. But I liked the part where he was visiting the memorial too. It showed people that the country backed then sacrificed a lot to keep them from living under Hitler's laws.
The scene of him visiting the memorial was.
I know . ..or rather, I figured you were talking about the beach landing . That was intense . As a combat veteran myself, it had me all knotted up and welled up and in the zone. The scene I still can't watch over is the hand to hand scene where the German they let go slowly buries his cold steel into the Jewish soldier then walks by the clerk who insisted on letting him go free like he (german) just fckued his (clerk) mom and didn't care who knew. That whole movie was so intense. The grainy and jumpy cinematography , the sound effects of all the firepower reporting . Definitely an awesome movie. Hanks should have got another Oscar for it.
Yea, sorry. I didn't mean to cap all over your answer. I thought I was replying to each individual comment. I stand corrected.
A Clockwork Orange:<br />
The milkbar scene with the additional music for the funeral of Queen Mary.<br />
Inglourious Bastards also has a very good opening scene. Filled with excellent dialogue (Tarentino's trademark) ending in a shootout.<br />
The Social Network opening scene also consists out of fast paced dialogue, like the entire movie basically. Definitely worth watching as well.
An EP Documentary: The Mystery of the Nerd's Thighs
yes! and that's a mystery unsolved!!
The James Bond movie: The Spy Who Loved Me with that amazing ski chase
I totally agree
Overall, a great film....one of the best.
Excellent music score too...(Hans Zimmer, always the best)
Star Wars : New Hope
Lesbo Anal ******* 4............lots of very "opening scenes" in this under rated gem of a movie.
Alright buddy, your comment had me so curious that I googled a phrase that I never envisioned that I would ever be googling. I, not only feel violated by what I so...I just, flat out can't believe what I saw.
I think the sequel was far superior to the original.
Not another teen movie.
2001 - A Space Odyssey
Now I'll be dreaming of monkey men trying to hit me over the head with bones.
Yes, it was a great beginning, but the rest of the movie was so boring, it gave me blood clots in my legs.
That match-cut from the ape-men to the orbiting space-weapon has to be one of the greatest transitions in cinematographic history!
try the book.. then the movie will be so much better :)
Hands down the best opening sequence in all of film history. I wondered how many answers it would take before someone realized that 2001 is THE answer.
My first, instinctual choice also. Books/movies/media/song that speak to the human condition are always a mile above the same made solely for entertainment.
...another important thing to remember: Don't even bother with the sequel "2010" - absolute rubbish! (The film's only saving grace is that Dame Helen Mirren plays Tanya Kirbuk, the Russian Commander) (oh! how I adore H.M.!!! - total class! ♥ ♥ ♥)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I know its sounds but it was so cool.
That 007 movie skyfall haha
I can't believe they killed Bond!
That was definitely a great opening scene!
The Sound of Music
I saw that with my father as a child. I remember turning to look at him and he had tears running down his cheeks. Good post.
Lord of the rings...probably
Wolf of Wall Street
Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Hands down!
