The two that come to my mind the quickest are these two:

Intro from Saint's Row 1. Really hope they go back in this direction for 4.

and this from MK Armageddon.
Alabama Crimson Tide: 2011-12 National Champions.

The Witcher 2 is also fantastic and so is Halo 4.

The Witcher 2 is also fantastic

The one with the guy on the ship? Yeah, that is amazing. I remember Lost Odyssey's opening being pretty incredible too.
Do you want to read awesomely rad reviews and articles? No? ****.

SoulCalibur II or Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

In fact I'd go as far as saying the Marvel Ultimate Alliance scenes are my favourite this gen... if only because I'm a fanboy. Dunno why they look so good and the actual games graphics are little more than upscaled last gen graphics. I know that's exactly what they are but why'd they put so much effort into those?? The great CGI with Doom in the rain at the end made me weep when I remembered the god-awful treatment Marvels best villain got in the F4 films.

If I remember correctly, the cutscenes in the X-Men Legends games were gorgeous in comparison to the in-game graphics as well.
Hulk is strongest one there is... Hulk is... only one there is... only one... there... is... Hulk feels... cold
