I love watching awesome opening title sequences for films! There's an art to it, and when done right it could in itself be a great little short film that leads into the actual film. My favorite movie title sequences come from the films of David Fincher and what Saul Bass did in the 60s, like the title sequences he made for the Alfred Hitchcock movies -- both are featured in this video. 

Here's a fantastic video presentation called The Film Before the Film created by Damian Pérez. It gives us a great historical breakdown of the art of the opening titles. This is a great and interesting video for all of you film lovers out there.
