Mediabistro's design blog, Unbeige, has a two-part compilation of 25 great typographic title sequences. Enjoy!
Have a look at this one too: marvellous typographic rendering of a dialogue from Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. It's already been posted at least 4 times on YouTube.
It may not rank as "great," but the cooking show "David Rocco's Dolce Vita" actually lists, in the credits, the design firm of the font used in the opening sequence. (It's P22....)
That has to be a first. I bet Zuzanna Licko would be happy to see that sort of thing become common practice.
The word "typographic" must be used verrrryyyy loosely here... but some great stuff. I just watched Dr. Strangelove last week again and noticed the way cool typography there.
I also love Thank You for Smoking: http://www.shadowplaystudio.com/smoking.html
Recall cool type based credits for Cronenberg's Crash http://www.cronenbergcrash.com/Scenes/Credits/credits.html
Dead Ringers but can't find it on the web.
The Untouchables - shadows cast by huge letters - can't find it either
the remake of Cape Fear http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MoOz7D4Z94

Yeah, I found myself thinking the same thing while watching. :-)
Before I view the 25 Sequences, even if some out there hate it, you have to give kudos to "7even" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOTG3VgOqpg
I was showed up. They did include "Seven" along with "North by Northwest". You have to include a Bond title. My picks 'From Russia With Love" Goldfinger"
Oh and here's another little sequence, hardly about typography, more like The Origins of Reader-Friendly Book Design. A great favourite with palaeographers:
