If a movie is going to have a title sequence, it needs to be interesting and actually introduce the story. I absolutely despise James Bond opening sequences because it's just 3-4 minutes of random visuals that serve no purpose.
It's silhouettes of naked women for 3-4 minutes. How does that serve no purpose??
And the visuals aren't random; they symbolize elements of the film's story. At least, that's the idea. The Maurice Binder-designed Bond titles are the best ones.
They just go one for way too long, and most of the songs suck.
