All of the Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Western films; A Fist Full of Dollars; Hang 'em High; A Few Dollars More; The Good, the Bad, The Ugly; The Outlaw Jose Wales; did I miss any?

Full Metal Jacket. Best opening 10 minutes ever.

No films spring to mind, always liked the opening credits of the Old Gray Whistle Test.

The first Austin Powers - the music, the colours & styling, & the dancing just make me smile every time.

Oh yes. Sergio Leone has done some brilliant opening sequences. It's either TGTBaTU or For a Few Dollars More but the one where a gunman has this distant horserider in his sights and the scene plays out slowly until with a single shot the rider falls from the horse. Brilliant stuff. And the unforgettable opening from Once Upon A Time in the West, of course....

Getting back to 2001, doesn't it open with a pull-back showing the Earth, then the moon and finally the sun - all set to the opening of Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra? That would be my vote for the all-time best opening sequence.

Correct Jools (as ever Wink ). But the space station (Blue D. ) sequence is the most memorable in my view.
