The Art of Title Sequences

Why would someone write a blog about Title Sequences? In their own words:

Remember when your heart sank just a little when you realized the Pink Panther movie wasn’t a cartoon?

Then, only a few years later, seeing Edward Gorey’s eerily fantastic opening to “Mystery!” capped with Vincent Price’s name on a headstone had your head spinning at the thought of the kind of stories those etchings could tell…if only the show was based on those illustrations.

Well, we want to see more of that. So watch and remember and create. And if you’ve got something to contribute, send it along.

Editors, Art of the Title

My favorites: Aeon Flux, Catch Me if You Can, True Blood and (of course) Cowboy Bebop.

(Oh, and I still liked the Pink Panther movie, even if it wasn’t a cartoon. Any movie that has a car chase scene with gorillas is an instant classic
