continue For whatever reason, I cant think of any recent movies with openings that come close to these. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) In picking this, Nat Segaloff refers to a Stanley Kubrick comment that the first shot should be the most interesting thing the audience sees after entering the theater. Indeed. Also sprach Zarathustra entered the collective unconscious and became background music for a ketchup commercial. And then theres a match cut spanning millennia. The rest of the movie aint bad, either. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers. <br>Source: http://www.boston.com/ae/movies/2013/08/10/best-movie-opening-scenes/PDiZcjPw7vzzK9LE12GQ0J/story.html

shows Dusty, voiced by Dane Cook, in a scene from the animated film, "Planes." (AP Photo/ Disney Enterprises, Inc.) Movie review: Disney cranks out predictable product in Planes By Sean P. In "Planes" (which, tellingly, does not carry Pixars name in the marketing), Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook) is a plucky cropduster with big dreams of racing in an around-the-world flying rally. He trains hard, working with Skipper (voiced by Stacy Keach), a battle-weary World War II-era P-39, to qualify. During the big race, Dusty must contend with the arrogant defending champion, Ripslinger (voiced by Roger Craig Smith), and a slew of international rivals. Director Klay Hall and writer Jeffrey M. Howard (veterans of Disneys Tinkerbell franchise) fly through the familiar landmarks of the "follow your dreams" animated playbook. <br>Source: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/entertainment2/56694088-223/planes-movie-disney-voiced.html.csp

But the most important purpose served by that added hardware may be visual and symbolic: It transforms Max into a hulkingly damaged yet superheroic man-machine a variation on the title character of "RoboCop." And it has the unmistakable look of a cross that he's been nailed to. Max isn't just fighting to save himself or his fellow earthlings. He's a this website guy who's been souped up into a post-apocalyptic, action-movie Christ. Matt Damon goes on a 'toilet strike' Matt Damon takes over Kimmel's show "Elysium" confirms the talent for razory mayhem and shocking satire, for the crazed spectacle of future decay that Blomkamp showcased in his amazing first feature, "District 9" (2009) . I've never forgotten that film's images of gargantuan alien spaceships hovering in the air, or of droid wars as bloody and frenzied as a heavy-metal version of the Crusades. In "Elysium," Blomkamp comes up with sci-fi conceits that sear themselves into your imagination. The film is set in 2154, and much of it takes place in a crumbling shantytown Los Angeles. Earth has become a great big slovenly police state, with citizens kept in check by clanging robot officers programmed to presume that you're guilty. <br>Source: http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/09/showbiz/movies/elysium-movie-review-ew

And its based, appropriately enough, on moving from what seems like a happy fantasy to a scary reality. That switch could have sunk this film from directors and former documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (The Celluloid Closet, The Battle of Amfar). But while Lovelace falters a bit, it remains a memorable, unflinching indictment.
