My pal daves just sent me a link to what I believe should be a new category at the Oscars... or at the Golden Globes at the very least!
Best Opening Credit Sequence.
The first opening credit sequence I ever remember was for one of the Pink Panther movies. It might not have held up well, but at the time it was like having a little cartoon before the feature.
Laboratory101's list has a quite a few of my favorites... including what I agree is one of the best ever: Seven. What're some of yours?
