  1. I rather liked the opening credits to Oz the Great and Powerful.

  2. The Japanese intro to Xmen TAS is phenomenal.

    • There was actually a Japanese intro for the early 90’s X-men series that’s not shown in the above video. It’s pretty cool because it shows Cable, the Brood and Omega Red. You can see it in Youtube by typing in “X-men animated anime opening.” It will be the first video in the list. CRY FOR THE MOON!

  3. Lol… I could talk all day about the plot holes in batman and man o Steele…

    • I couldn’t. I tried with my brother some time back but that conversation only lasted 5 minutes. I guess we enjoyed them too much to sit picking things apart needlessly and couldn’t think of many plot holes to discuss.

  4. It would be awesome to see the X-men films all done 90’s cartoon style. Someone please get on this could be awesome to see.

  5. I didn’t it realize this before the x men intros are all just roll calls reminds me of expendable trailers.

  6. The 2011 anime opening is reminiscent of the 90s cartoon opening, with similar intros to each of the main characters

    The best opening is the 90s anime opening, followed by the 90s original opening, the 90s original opening has the best music

  7. Movie opening sequences: The opening to UltraViolet (Milla Jovovich) is rather spectacular… should be atleast an honorable on that top 10
