Creative Credits

On Saturday I went to the movies. By myself. Something I haven’t done in a long while. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, some quality Mark time.

The movie I saw was RocknRolla, directed by Guy Ritchie:

When a Russian mobster sets up a real estate scam that generates millions of pounds, various members of London’s criminal underworld pursue their share of the fortune. Various shady characters, including Mr One-Two, Stella the accountant, and Johnny Quid, a druggie rock-star, try to claim their slice…

I’m going to keep my personal review to a minimum – it’s an awesome movie. Forget what the critics are saying and judge it yourself.

Ok to the punch line of this post.

I love watching creative introductory credits to a film. I’m a firm believer in presenting the seemingly boring credit notes to a movie in a fun, eye-catching way. After all shouldn’t the first few minutes of a movie grab your attention, not bore you to death? Rocknrolla’s intro was memorable – a grungy, bad-ass gangster mash up of grainy illustrations, chunky typography and paint splatters.

  1. Amazing style, definitely looks “bad-ass” – Love the colours and the grunge elements. Never pay attention to critics, so from the looks of things it’s a movie I’d quite like.

  2. i haven’t seen this yet. Jeremy Piven ( aka Ari Gold ) is one of my fav actors is in it.
