Gladiator, Star Wars: A New Hope, The Lord of the Rings, and… did I mention Gladiator? It seems like a lot of our readers here at FAIL Blog have the exact same cinematic library. When we asked all of you to share your favorite movie openings of all time via Facebook, it seemed like you all could not get enough of the same few movies. But look, some movies are worth repeating because they are just that good. Personally, I can’t tell you exactly what the opening of Gladiator was like so many of you can (I’m guessing there was a battle involved), but I’m glad you all seem to fancy yourselves some Ridley Scott.
For comparison purposes, we also included some other movie openings from this viral r/AskReddit thread with the same prompt. As for my personal picks, I’d like to throw a few others in the mix: Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, David Fincher’s The Social Network, and Jordan Peele’s Us for something recent.
