This is, IMO the best ever opening scene of any movie ever made.

Seriously? I don't find anything particularly special of that scene.

I think Scream, as far as horror movies go has one of the best opening scenes.

I loved the opening scene in "Jackie Brown".

The Dark Knight when seen in real IMAX for the first time was pretty impressive. Total black screen suddenly switched to a huge city scene. Really felt like you were flying around in the helicopter they probably used to film it.

Apocalypse Now was pretty badass, too.

I think the opening scene of Drive was pretty awesome, one of my all-time favorite opening scenes!

The opening scene to the old western Duel at Diablo is one of my all time favorites. As James Garner saves a woman from an Indian attack, the camera pulls back in a helicopter shot as they ride into the desert and the opening credits roll.
