Are you one of those people, who after watching a movie, always has to watch all of the credits afterwards? Like it's a ritual part of watching a movie or something. Or do you just stop the DVD (or walk out of the cinema), as soon as the credits appear?...

Personally I normally watch the credits, it's time for me to reflect on the movie I have just seen. Plus normally it has some clool music or sometimes extra scenes or whatever. Also, I'm normally too lazy to move straight away... Then again, some people are too lazy to stay...

*option 3 refers to things such as the outakes at the end of certain Pixar movies, and that extra scene during the credits of Shrek 2, among other things. Basically, anything extra that keeps you there through the credits...

In the words of Electric Six:

The first half applies. I hate credits.

I picked choice three: Only if there's extra scenes and stuff.

I'm gonna go with option 3. I only usually stay and watch if I know that theres an extra scene at the end, or outtakes, or if something happens during the credits in general. If I'm at the cinema, I'm always usually in too much of a rush to get out and go to the toilet anyway  wink

At home, I usually just swicth the DVD off. Unless, like I mentioned, theres something during the credits  smile

Number 3 of course, or if the actual credit graphics/music hold my interest like at the end of ROTK.

I'd especially stay to see any trailers or see any out-takes like the ones that usually appear at the end of Jim Carrey movies, they're cool.  big grin

I always watch the credit to avoid being traped in the crown seemingly desparatly trying to leave, I'm just patient like that...  tongue

Edit: I found it funny that 3/4 of the cinema had left when that last part of Shrek 2 came on, i feel that stuff likr that is a deparate attempt for the crators to get there name seen on screen, also i always woundered if at Big Screen Premiers people walk out during the credits and if it made the creators sad...

I always want to watch the credits, but the people I'm with usually want to leave the theater/stop the DVD/rewind the tape.  If left to my own devices I'll watch all of the credits, though.

Also, I really dislike the way that many TV stations show the credits nowadays: squished onto less than half of the screen and/or shown at high speed, so that it's impossible to read them.

In the cinema it really depends on my mood, but watching on TV or on tape/DVD, I usually always keep watching at least until I've seen the full cast list.  smile
If it's got good music, I'll probably watch the entire thing.

I missed the last part of Shrek 2 (I have it on DVD and the credits stops during the song). Can you tell me what happened?

If I'm alone, I usually watch the whole thing. It just feels like I didn't saw the complete picture if I stop at the credits. When I'm with other people, I can't. They want to get out of the theater/stop the DVD as soon as possible.

I usually watch the credits, either for listening to the music, looking for extra scenes or to find out where some of the scenes were filmed.

If I like the music, or a movie has just left me floored, I'll remain. So, I guess number 4... I don't stay just for the honour of surviving the mighty entire movie length.

I usually watch the credits, but it depends on my mood, how recently I've seen the film and whether I'm in a rush to do anything else.

It really annoys me if I'm watching a film on television and there is talking over the credits or they reduce them to an unreadable size on the side while showing an advert for a later programme  mad

I don't usually watch the credits, but if I'm watching a DVD or video I'll fast-forward through them, just to see if there are any hidden bits at then end (like in Harry Potter 2 or the South Park movie).  In a theater, sometimes I stick around until the credits are half over, but usually I just leave.

Always watch the credits.  I'm such a nerd.  Exceptions would be movies that are really bad, but those I don't often reach the end of anyway.

I always watch the credits. I like to know who did what in a movie or TV show.  If there's extra stuff, that's just a bonus.  smile

Well, it's a very short scene. Don't get me wrong, it is funny, but it's short.

I usually leave half way through. I still regret staying through the credits of Pirates Of The Carribean. Stupid monkey. Couldn't sleep for days.

School Of Rock's credits are pretty good, the movies keeps going until the credits are over.

Normally, unless I really wanna see something (like, who did which song in the movie) then I'll up and leave.

If there's nothing special after the credits and if I don't feel like listening to the track they play with them, then I'll usually leave before they end.

I've chosen 3, if there is another scene, but there is also two other cases - if the background music is pretty good and I want to hear it's end, or if I think I recognized an actor but I'm not sure its him (usually on dubbed anime, cartoon, or in "real" movies when the actor gave his voice to a character on a different flick or computer game.

I watched most of the credits in Van Helsing, because the animations accompanying were pretty cool, and I watch most other films' credits until about half-way down. The problem is, most credits of films are so looooong these days that by the time you've watched them all, you've forgotten which film you were watching; that's why I like seeing them on DVD. Some of the DVD commentaries warn you when there's something good at the end, which is great; the POTC commentary went on through most of the credits also, which kept my interest.

At Shrek2, I was part of the stampede of people rushing back in.

Usually I'll stay if there's good music or things like concept art alongside the credits. But there's only so much muscle cramp I can take

Not like old films where as soon as the film was over the words The End came up on the screen and that was it  tongue

I watch the credits for the music. And to see the musical credits. And to spot in-jokes and funny or ironic names. And if there were any of those "Hey, wasn't that...? you know- that guy/girl/whatever"-moments then I want to check out who it actually was.

But lately, on Danish TV, they're starting to clutter the end credits of movies with ads for their next movies, gameshows and series... That's crap!

I sat through The Matrix Reloaded's credits, only for them to turn on the lights and totally wreck my ability to watch the trailer, it looks weird when they're showing the trailer with the lights on.
