    My absolute favorite is Post Tennebras Lux (Darkness After Light I think is the translation). So beautiful. Sets the tone for the movie perfectly. The movie is about the symbootic relationship between good and evil.

    Super Troopers- the funniest opening 15 minutes on film.

    Casino Royale- amazing opening chase scene

    Inglorious Basterds- Waltz is near perfection as far as an actor. When a movie bad guy gives you chills, they are good.

    The Matrix- Trinity escapes

    Reservoir Dogs- Mr Pink and his tipping theory

    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    The Departed (Nicholson's narration)
    The Revenant - not really the first scene, but the indian battle maybe 10 minutes in counts as an opening scene to me
    Just Friends (fat Ryan Reynolds)

    Not a movie, but a show... Game of Thrones. I was hooked after the opening scene.

    That was the first movie to come to mind for me. It was an incredibly brutal and sad way to begin a movie, especially because it was based off true events...but it was so well done.

    Super Troopers is an easy answer for me.

    These would round out my top 3. I've also always like the credits and opening scene of Se7en to set the tone for the movie. That probably beats out Reservoir Dogs for #3.
