I started watching Trainspotting for one more time and I found the opening scene to be one of the best ever. Here are my favorite opening sequence in a movie:

1) Trainspotting:

2) Apocalypse Now:

3) 2001 A Space Odyssey:

True Romance - This also has such a good opening. I couldn't find the clip for this movie opening scene.

List your favorite movie opening scene.

I always loved this opening scene. So clever, and so much more to pick up on when you watch it the second time and so on. Even when they revisit this scene at the end of the movie, there's that really clever line of "Heh, flashback humour."

Fallen with Denzel. If you pay attention the narrator tells you exactly how the movie is going to end.

Alien is another. More subtle but the tension is palpable. The computer headpiece turning on always catches me off guard.
