Good shout. Maybe The Good, The Bad and The Ugly or A New Hope.

Why quote the OP on the 1st page...

Anyway, good shouts Morricone and the scrolling titles + Williams score in SW are both iconic. But both are dependent on the soundtrack (Yes I posted RB...but the images of Jake/DeNiro in the ring help make it operatic)...Saving Private Ryan for me probably loses a few marks personally as it influenced the whole shaky cam generation...

I love game of death..even though it's a brucesploitation flick but the music (composer: Jon Barry tops it, obviously they were going for a 007esque drum.

Yeah [MENTION=427]Jim Kelly[/MENTION] the John Barry score is great. Im a Bruce Lee fan. Guess Im lookink for an opening scenethat sets up what the film is as opposed to who is in it title card with a good score...

As an example...

From a technical perspective, from 35 secs on is pretty good:

I'm not a big fan of the film tbh but am a sucker for a great long tracking shot and it does everything to set the scene
