Gran Apertura Volume #3

Gran Apertura means "Great Opening" in Italian. I felt it was an appropriate title for the new column I will be writing here at C-C-D. I love movies, but every once in a blue there is an opening segement in a movie that just sets the bar way to high for the rest of the flick. This opening scene is so good, it can't be topped by the rest of the movie itself. Or, sometimes the opening scene is part of an excellent film, and it does the job of getting you roped in. No matter what, the opening scene in a movie is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT scene in the whole film. So this column will highlight some of the greatest opening segements from the wide world of cinema. If you like what you see, maybe you will go ahead a check out the films in completion. Happy Viewings!!!

Super Troopers - 2001

I absolutely love this movie from the Broken Lizard crew. They have made some doozies, but this one is by far their best work. They get right to it in this opening scene, and the movie just keeps getting better and better. One of the best cop chase/pullover scenes ever, you can not possibly tell me this is not funny. Enjoy the clip... thanks for the videoYoutube!!!
