OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS: VISUAL HAIKU THURSDAY WILL RESUME AFTER LABOR DAY – I WILL POST SOME THEMES SOON!
Best opening scene? Hmmmmm. This is the one that came to mind first – ALTHOUGH Gone With the Wind was a consideration – this one always causes a stop-and-watch moment at our house. It is very patriotic in this household, for some unknown reason …. ???? Anyway, it took me a while to figure out which movie in the series it was …. but I give you, as my Best Opening Scene in a Movie ….. James Bond …The Spy Who Loved Me.
Classic and iconic James Bond stuff …..
1. Hot girl: “But James! I need you!” Bond: “So does England!”
2. Out-skiing the professionals
3. The parachute – timed to perfection and presumably someone actually did that stunt!
4. The music and looking-down-the-barrel opening (although not in this clip)
5. Those typically 70’s-ish fashions!.
