I'm a huge geek when it comes to title sequences. If they're done right they act as great prologues to films, tv shows or games; they set the tone and direct the audiences emotions.
I came across this great collection of title sequences and it seems that they keep it up to date which is just plain sexy:
ART OF THE TITLE
Kyle Cooper's work for the "Se7en" titles is still my favorite piece of visual anything!...the double visions of Jon Doe's pen writing in his notebooks and sewing them together with his cutoff fingertips as Nine Inch Nail plays in the BG...soooo awesome! The obvious sync up with the song saying "you get me closer to god" with "directed by David Fincher" at the end still cracks me up.
Trivia #1: There's a frame in the Se7en title sequence that's flipped upside down, rotated, smeared and reads "This will be the end of you."
Trivia #2: I have never bothered looking for Trivia #1. Someone just told me it was there.
