Lord of War (2005)
The visually pleasing “life of a bullet” sequence is a perfect opening for a film about an arms dealer. 720p HD version.
People who added this item 5843 Average listal rating (4042 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.1
The retro animated intro to Catch Me If You Can perfectly sets the scene and time period.

People who added this item 6369 Average listal rating (4489 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.6
Seven (1995)
A wonderfully creepy title sequence that perfectly sets the mood for the film you’re about to watch.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 2834 Average listal rating (1982 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.6
Superbad (2007)
It’s amazing how much personality can be expressed in a simple silhouette.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 735 Average listal rating (488 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.9
Charade (1963)
There were a lot of animated opening title sequences in the 60′s.
People who added this item 4037 Average listal rating (2776 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8
Casino Royale (2006)
In an effort to re-invent the franchise the infamous James Bond title sequence was overhauled. The result was a visually pleasing intro that still pays its respects to the original.
C!pH3r's rating:
A lot of Tim Burton’s films sport fantastic title sequences but Sweeney Todd’s is especially great. The creepy atmosphere and music combined with the dark imagery sets the tone very nicely.

People who added this item 3196 Average listal rating (2097 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 8.8
Vibrant colors, great animation and an amazing score. This title sequence has it all.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 9114 Average listal rating (6689 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.8
Fight Club (1999)
One amazing sequence starts at a microscopic level and continues to expand outward until we are looking down the barrel of a gun.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 774 Average listal rating (508 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1
We would be remiss not to include the original Pink Panther in this list.
People who added this item 2217 Average listal rating (1431 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.6
A very clever title sequence with the credits written on vintage cigarette packaging.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 749 Average listal rating (418 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.2
In a world where the simple act of reading has been outlawed it only makes sense to have the titles read to you.
People who added this item 1256 Average listal rating (708 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.6
Delicatessen (1991)
Just beautiful in all respects. A wonderful use of practical effects – they don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 4649 Average listal rating (3282 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.4
Alien (1979)
A very slow paced, minimalist title sequence. The result is nothing but haunting.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 118 Average listal rating (71 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.3
The concept is fairly simple but it’s so well done and the final result works beautifully.
People who added this item 1763 Average listal rating (1086 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Another great example of a contemporary film featuring an old school animated introduction.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 2781 Average listal rating (1748 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.3
Vertigo (1958)
Vertigo features a masterfully crafted and almost hypnotic title sequence. A perfect opening to the film.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 3144 Average listal rating (2072 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Panic Room (2002)
This is the third David Fincher movie to make this list, it seems the man can appreciate a great title sequence. This is a very basic concept yet it’s brilliantly executed.
Wonderful imagery combined with the hand written text makes for a very unique and memorably title sequence.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 1967 Average listal rating (1297 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
EuroTrip (2004)
Say what you will about the movie, this is one creative and well-executed title sequence.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 1953 Average listal rating (1100 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.4
Pi (1998)
This is a great example of an amazing and original title sequence done on a shoe string budget.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 1866 Average listal rating (1225 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.3
A series of intersecting lines form into a skyscraper. Very cool effect, especially for the time.

People who added this item 640 Average listal rating (396 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.4
It only makes sense for a film about a comic book creator to have the credits in a comic book fashion.

The James Bond franchise really understood the beauty of a great title sequence. Though we only included one classic in this list, the rest are here in spirit.

The credits for American Psycho play as many mind games on you as the film itself. Great attention to typography.Warning: Course Language!

Psycho (1960)

The Kingdom (2007)

We all know that first impressions are important, right? Well, the same goes for film. The opening title sequence of a film is that film’s opportunity to make a good first impression on you, the viewer. A well-crafted title sequence introduces the audience to the tone and theme of the film as well as the cast and crew. - Smashing Magazine
