Gran Apertura Vol#4 - Blade

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!!!

Blade - 1998

In my opinion, this is the movie that opened up Hollywood to the idea that comic books could work as movies. They took a very obscure character and made the movie fucking awesome... not to mention the fact that WEsley Snipes killed shit and they were about 10 years ahead of the whole vampire friendly curve that is ruling (some would say Hollywood as we speak. Enjoy this opening scene... now thats how you fuck up some vampires, son!!!
