View Full Version : Do You Watch End Credits?
03-04-2004, 12:42 PM
You know, it occured to me that I had stopped watching the end credits for films. I'm now trying to force myself, as they offer a nice conclusion to a film, and usually have wonderful soundtracks over them. Am I the only one though, that fast forwards (or stops) a film right after the story is over?

I rarely watch end credits. Unless I'm looking for specific information, the song is enjoyable, the credits are cool, or I know there's something more after the credits I don't watch them.

Yeah, they have to be pretty kickass credits (like 'The Beyond' - turn up that volume, baby!) for me to voluntarily sit thru them. If I haven't seen the movie I'll fast forward thru them in case there's something at the end.
However, I always sit through them at the cinema, because:
a) There might be something after them; and
b) It gives the common folk a chance to piss off.

I sometimes let the end credits roll in the background, if it's a movie I've never seen before. I don't usually watch them if I've already seen the movie before. The rare exception being movies that have some footage in the end credits...like outtakes.
I always do in the theater for reasons listed above. I may not always at home, unless there is a song title I need or if the music and/or visuals are especially compelling.

im usually looking at the credits to find out where a movie was filmed.

Yeah, and picking up incidental music credits can be useful too.

I read the credits all the time. Usually to look for songs, but also filming locations, and also just to see if I recognize any of the names. Also, when I was pregnant, I thought movie credits were a cool place to look for prospective baby names. Resident Evil was filmed somewhere in Europe, and practically the entire cast has a cool European name. :)
I don't always watch them, but I leave them on, no matter what. As in, I never fast forward throught them or shut them off. They're part of the movie, as far as I'm concerned.

I always try to watch the end credits if possible.
Sometimes there's a nice little surprise hidden at the end.
Most recently: Cabin Fever.

On DVDs I speed through them to see if there are any after thought shots like bloopers. Other than that I don't pay too much attention to them.

I don't usually watch em, but always fast forward to look for bloopers/extra scenes etc. when I first watch a disc.
Sometimes I'll stay at the theater.

I usually stay for all end credits, in theatre and at home. My friends get all pissy but I say fuck them. I wanna know who made the film I just watched. :) Its pretty cool to get to the make up artists credits section and spot out people I know from other films.

Unless I am looking for some info from the credits (actor, song title, etc.), or there is great music or outtakes, I almost always stop the movie when the credits start. Sounds like I am missing my share of the things at the end of the movies (Cabin Fever for example).

no and it annoys me when someone says they have to watch them.
Don't usually watch 'em but some neat end credits I've seen are:
- Ferris Buler's Day Off(bus scene)
- Se7en(credits roll backwards to DB: Heart's Filthy Lesson)
- Halloween 4(Musin is really creepy)
- Predator(great music and roll call for the cast)

I don't know why but I always let the credit play until the end even if I've already saw the movie...

Lately I am always watching the end credits, especially if the music is great (i.e. Carrie, The Howling, Dawn of the Dead). If the music is bad, not very good, or annoying, however, I take out the disc when the credits start.

Sleepless had nice credits.
