Some great opening credits

I started to watch the TV series “Les Revenants” called Rebound in English and Gengångare in Swedish (now on SVT Play) and I’m totally addicted. Great actors, beautifully shot and crazy good script as what I have seen so far. (thanks for the tip Johanna)

Right here you can watch this trailer for it (also embedded)
But what I really wanted to show you was the opening credits found right here but for some reason made impossible to embed. I don’t like scary movies. But I love fantasy. So far this isn’t scary in the normal kind of way. Like eating hot food. I can’t take the pepperish mexican kind of hot but give me loads of “wasabi” and I eat the lot. This is the same kind of difference of watching this “scary wasabi” series.
Just do it – you won’t regret it. And watch the opening credits!!

Another great opening credit which I love is for the series True Blood. I mean just that song and all the crazy images. Like the fox with all the maggots and the baptise in the river. Oh my – LOVE this.

This is a classic but I so remember the first time I saw this one from Se7en. First time I actually started to notice the credits by themselves. As a form of art. I can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years.

I also love the Royal Tenenbaums. I don’t know if this will do as the opening credits but it is a damn good intro of a movie. I remember sitting in a theater where I guess I was the only one who got the movie. I was laughing so hard and truly loving this movie while all the others where dead quiet and some even sleeping. They all looked like question marks and I came out being in love.

Also love the classic Addams family. I mean the hand clap. To die for.

And Do the right thing just because I loved this movie som much and because Rosie Perez dances like there’s no tomorrow. I wrote Do the right thing in all my school books everywhere and wanted to call my first child Mookie. Apparently it didn’t happen…

Here is a list with 50 great opening credits

You are right. The first season of “Les Revenants” was awesome. I can’t wait for the second one to begin. The last episode was such a cliffhanger!

Jag tittar också på gengångare, den har blivigt stor på jobbet. Den är vacker och krypande och väldigt bra. Det var tur att min kollega började prata om den på jobbet för annars hade jag nog missat den eftersom den bara visas på playen.

I love this post. I think what makes an intro really good is if it completely captures the mood of the film or show. I the true blood intro just oozes sex and edginess and the Royal Tenenbaums just makes you feels like you’re opened the perfect story books. Thank you so much for sharing these.
