Do you sit and watch the credits roll after a movie. If so it is to see if there are any extras at the end of the movie. (e.g Pirates of the Carribean 3) Or do you simply like to aknowledge all the people who made the movie possible.

I don't usually sit and watch the credits roll unless they are playing clips along with it because they don't really interest me.

Yes, I do sit and watch the credits roll, mostly because there's usually someone whose name I forgot or maybe I want to know who performed a song in the movie but also to see if they stuck something on the end. Two movies in particular I remember doing that are "No Way Out" and "Trains, Planes and Automobiles". Annie

Thanks for responding, you brought up a great point. I too sometimes watch the credits to find out who performed a song that I liked. :-)

I generally watch the credits as I like to see who has contibuted to the movie and also look for the songs which appear. But also because occassionaly you get some funny out takes or even an occassional clue to a possible sequel as is the case with X-men: The Last Stand.

Yes, some movies do give clues at the end. I've heard that the title of the next James Bond film used to appear at the end of the credits. Although im not entirely sure if this is true or not. It is a technique (putting in clues) that I believe should be used more often.

Dear tabatha, Good one!! I missed the extra part on 'Pirates of the Caribean 3' From then on...I always stay to watch the credits..whether have extra or not...lol Do you watch all the Jackie Chan movies? If you do, it always have bloopers or 'behind the scenes' featured after the credits...many movies,cartoons. animations are having their extras, or something interesting at the end, so do not leave the cinemas immediately...you will miss some important facts like in 'Pirates of the Caribean 3' Just want to add additional point...do come in early into the cinema, most of the animations or movies by 'Dreamworks' are having a special 'short story' before the main movie start...example in 'Wall-E', Madagascar, Ratatouille and many more... All this is 'added value' for our money spend on the movie tickets, why waste...come early and do not leave immediately...enjoy the shows! Tks and do keep in touch!

Iriene coincidentally enough my dad brought me up on Jackie Chan movies, he is a great fan of all his films and has a collection of his dvds. Yes, I love watching the bloopers or outtakes at the end of his movies. Sometimes we think his stunts are so effortless as he makes them look so easy, but the outtakes show us how hard these stunts really are. I really admire Jackie Chans dedication and hard work. As for 'Pirates of the Caribean 3' I too missed the final scene at the end of the credits and saw it on youtube a few weeks later. Since then I try and watch the end credits to see if there are any suprises instore. I also love the little bonus animated stories that are incorporated before the pixar films. Yes im now an adult, but I will always love animated movies. :-) I also like it when there is a song at the end of the movies, sometimes accompanying the credits where the whole cast and crew sing or dance. Sometimes a montage is made where actors and crew have burst out into a certain song during production which becomes the movies theme song. An example is at the end of ''Bend it Like Beckham''. As an aspiring actress myself I love to see the whole cast and crew getting on well and having a great time.

Dear tabatha, Great to hear from you again! , I have been checking for your response every now and then..perhaps I like the way you response and the relevance to the topic in discussion, great job..keep it up You have the right 'vocabulary' for the right words in mind! Do you watch 'Mama Mia'?..Somewhere during the credits, they sang again and that was really fun :-) A few Singapore's Movie by Jack Neo...at the end of the credit they will show some bonus to gives us some ideas what happened to the hero / heroins ...sometimes they will put the phrase there : 'Do Not Leave Yet, There are Some More'..then those audience who are standing to leave will laughed and sit back...lol Some 'interactive elements' in it. I always encourage my son to watch good movies, I noticed he learns a lot... Tks and do keep in touch!

Pixar movies has wonderful extra scenes on end credit. My kids expect these and watch it till end. For others movies I usually read it to know the performers new to me or to know who did a catchy musical score or I want to know where the film was shoot. But most specially I want to know if any animal was harm during the filming.)

How terrible! that's probably where it all started - the disclamer.
