Goodfellas, begins with that scene in 1970 and then flashes back to Henry's childhood

it would have gone from a decent movie to an AWESOME, trilogy-ending movie.

Deja Vu is sort of an interesting case. It starts with the end and is the legitimate beginning all at the same time.

Serves me right for only reading the replies. Oh well, at least my last post had a second movie that was not mentioned yet.

Was Goodfellas actually the end though? It's been years since I've seen it, but I don't recall that having anything to do with the end.

No, it starts with something that happens in the middle of the movie.
