Opening Titles Done Right

Ha, I forgot about this sequence. Totally rocks. They're just going for it all the way.

Nice call, Kristin! Panic Room. I totally forgot about that one.

And Alex, sometimes I think about doing a whole post about this sequence based around their facial expressions. They really are going for it.
