    A lot of great candidates here but the original Star Wars always wins out for me. The feeling I got as a kid, already excited at the sight of that rebel ship, when the massive Star Destroyer roared over my head taking up the whole screen was life changing.

    Love it or hate it, this must be one of the most iconic and well known openings to a movie.

    Saw it 3 times in the first 2 weeks, think I have only watched it twice since then.

    I was four years old I think... my mother took me to see it on one of our rare excursions to town, and I was instantly Star Wars obsessed for the rest of my childhood.
