Movie Credits

AAA Pictures Presents…..
A film by BBB….
Starring…..

And we all know the last person in the opening credits is the name of the movie director. We’ve seen hundreds of those in movies, but so few are remembered. Perhaps the opening credits serve as a reminder to the audience that though the movie has started, it hasn’t started completely, so they have a second chance to grab popcorn or go the the restrooms. George Lucas thought the opening credits were pointless that he left them out completely in the Star Wars series, though not without consequences that made him resigned from the Directors Guild.

Having just watched the controversial movie Watchmen gave me second thoughts of the opening credits. It was brilliantly done with great cinematography. I was amused with the “alternative history” depictions using well-known photographs found in history books. Here’s one that first made me laughed, recognizing the art as the Last Supper only after noticing the odd “uplifted finger” often found in Da Vinci’s drawings.

Then coincidentally I was reading National Geographic‘s rebuff of the moon landing hoax claims using the helmet reflection photo of Buzz Aldrin.

The other opening credits that I could remember and like was The Fall, which I blogged earlier this year. The other was Juno with tasteful drawn animation of suburb scenery.

And of course, besides opening credits, I was impressed by Wall-E‘s closing credits with brief progress of art history from the cave drawings to the Roman mosaics and then the European Impressionists.

It is good to know that, while Hollywood major distributors might dumb down the plots for the mainstream audience, the artists are given artistic leeway in areas where the mainstream audience doesn’t care much.
