Top 10 Iconic Opening Cinema Scenes

Posted By TFN on September 19, 2009



Our good friend Justin G. sends us this update on a list compiled by PasteMagazine.com of the top 10 most iconic opening scenes in the history of motion pictures.

My supremely-sharpened Jedi intuition tells me that a certain yellow crawl might be making an appearance on this list...

See the intro to the list below and then click here to check out videos of each scene that made the list.

"Our favorite opening scenes come in many forms. Some plunge readers into an action scene. Others crackle with dialogue. And one is driven by a thrilling cascade of, um, scrolling text. For one reason or another, these scenes have become iconic entities unto themselves, even apart from the movies they introduce."


Thanks for the news Justin!
