Movies that start with the end?

Both Fight Club and Memento start with a glimpse of the end and then flashback to get the beginning.

What other movies do something similar to this?

Granted, the linked thread is almost five years old, but I thought the topic sounded familiar.

Saving Private Ryan?
Spoiler:
I'm not sure because it could be argued that the WWII bulk of the film is a flashback, but for a while we see things Ryan didn't see because he wasn't there with the group until later.

There are actually a ton of these. I find it a little annoying at times.
