4 FEB 2021 --
Two things. First, somehow by adding this comment today, I have deleted all the comments from all the viewers that this video has ever had and I have no idea how that happened.
Second: one of the comments suggested I list the name of the song used in the
End Title Sequence. Which I agree I should have done in the first place. So if it's not
too late, here it is:
The End Title Track is "Just An Illusion" by Imagination
The version used in the movie was edited by the film makers to
go with the flow of the end title visuals. There are many versions
of this song available on YT and some of them are pretty close to
the movie version.

One of my favorite movies from the 80's, in particular the ending.
Something I've noticed about movies since then is the absence of either
an opening, or closing sequence that includes aerial footage.
This may sound wierd to some, others may agree and yet still some may
be indifferent. Nevertheless it is my contention that one of the elements
of a good film is the opening or closing sequence. I do conceed the notion
that the complete absence of either one or the other also contributes to a
Cases in Point: All The Presidents Men which has no opening but one of the worlds best films.
Sometimes a great opening seuence won't win it any awards either.
Example: The Taking of Beverly Hills, or Sudden Impact. Decent movies but not spectacular.
My example for this topic is F/X. Great opening AND a great closing/ending sequence,
which I am posting tonight.
Feel free to post any opinions, comments, whatever. I believe in free speech, even
when it doesn't align with my perspectives. Afterall, virtues are only meaningful
when they're inconvenient to defend.
