Favorite title/credit sequences of 2007

Most are fairly simple and unimaginative, but some are terrific.

Probably my favorite of the year would be the end title credits for 300 which sustained the visual excitement and energy of the movie.

Any others that stood out this year?

I like the closing credits to Michael Clayton, it was very Soderbergh-esque with the camera lingering on George Clooney and the music playing, reminded me of the stunningly beautiful final scene in Traffic when Benicio Del Toro is watching the baseball game.

Yeah, that was a really good closing credits sequence. I kind of wished they would have kept the taxi ride going during the entire end credits.

Closing credits for Ratatouille were great (probably just because I loved the music in that film so much)

The end credits for Shoot 'em Up was pretty slick.

Oh yeah, I loved how they moved to a shot of the restaurant sign and faded everything but the word "Ratatouille." The "fin" was a nice touch as well.

Superbad (love the old Columbia logo)
Elizabeth: The Golden Age (nicely parallels the baroque title sequence of the original film)

One of my favorite opening credit sequences of 2007 was for The Kingdom. The four-minute sequence is a short overview of how the Saudi Arabia and United States relationship has developed/changed since the 1930's.
