I love the opening of Trainspotting. Those lines coupled with Lust For Life is a great way to start a film.

So many great ones here (even the opening line from Drive is great), but I gotta go with High Fidelity

Out of all of those the first line from Stand By Me caught my attention the most. Pretty dark way to start a movie.

Had to give it to Goodfellas, but almost all of these are brilliant.
