Movie Title Montage

Not to be confused with the "Movie Title in Movies" montage, this features some great credit artwork. Check it out:

While I love movie title artwork, I think it's definitely fading out and being replaced by artwork in the end credits. Movies want to just start with the action already, fearing the audience will tune out if you don't jump in quickly enough, and then use the end credits to either showcase more information (like THE OTHER GUYS' use of financial stats) or to just expand a little more on the world the film created (like the bloopers after many Pixar films).

Which style do you prefer: opening credits or end credits?
