I never read the ending credits. The only time i wait for the credits to end is to see if there was a bit after, like a little bonus (i hate it when you find out there was on after you leave! But honestly, i cant help but feel that they should speed up the speed it comes down, or have something interesting to watch whilst its going. The same applys for the begining as well!

If you worked on a movie, wouldn't you want to be credited? You couldn't have had the movie without any of those positions/people, so they're important,too, even if their work isn't as obviously visible.And However, I cannot understand why miscellaneous support roles whose skills & qualities are not in any way apparent in the finished product would need a mention. Except, without them, the movie didn't get made.

Hello vinaysughir, thanks for posting here ! In your post, you wrote that readind the credits is important because in them there are shown people names,last names who worked with the movie. But do you read those names ? Do you read credits ?

Some movies have little extra scenes at the end of the credits which I really like. I think the Scooby Doo films did. Marvel films definitely tend to. My partner and I usually stay in the cinema after a movie has finished to watch the credits to make sure we don’t miss anything. I also like knowing the names of the actors because sometimes you recognise people from other things, but you can’t place them.

Usually if it's a good movie that I've watched at the theaters , I'll watch the credits. I always watch ending credits for Marvel movies though. For example, I went to watch Ironman2 and it showed a little preview of Thor.. When I'm at home, I don't bother looking at the credits unless I'm interested in the cast, producers, music, etc.

I usually skip the credits, unless I actually want to look for a song that they played in the movie. So then I'd have to sit there and look at the names roll by. Or if I'm in a movie theater, I just wait for it to empty out before I have the chance to get out, so I watch the bloopers/credits scrolling on the screen.

I always watch the credits at the end of a movie. I like to see who was involved in the making of the movie. It irritates me when i see a movie at the theatre and everybody jumps up to leave before the credits are over. To me, the movie is not over until the credits finish rolling by.

The only reasons why I stick around for the credits part are: 1. I need to see the music or songs included in the soundtrack. They usually appear last. 2. Since I mostly go to the movies with my boyfriend, we have a litte game where we find people who have the same names as we do. The one with more similar names wins. He usually always wins because his name is quite common. The loser treats the other for lunch or dinner. 3. While waiting for the replay, I have no choice but to wait till the credits and trailers are done.

Well, watching credits after the movie is over can be a boring thing for many. I watch the credits only if I am impressed by the movie in any way - be it the performance, or the special effects or the story or anything that I find interesting. Otherwise, i too skip over that stuff. I know it is rude to ignore the work done behind the scenes, but who will want to waste time in knowing the details if the movie was not interesting!

No, unless there's this song in the movie that you heard or the first time and would like to know the singer...something like that...not always

That’s another good reason I forgot to mention. I’ve heard of several good artists through film soundtracks.

Once upon a time I didn't watch the credits, but lately they have gotten to the point where they are sometimes more fun than the movies themselves! They show bloopers that happened during the making of the movies or sometimes it's dancing and partying after the movie, etc. It's just plain fun!

Hello mysticmagie, thanks for posting here ! Yeah, nowdays there are more good stuff like bloopers or fun scenes in the credits. A while ago nothing good were shown in credits. Just names, last names...... Ant some other words

If ill be able to witness a very well played movie, having a good story, good script, then thats the time i look at the credits at the end of the show. Otherwise, just like you, i turn off the TV or my player.

Yes. I always watch the ending credits. Always. Even if I'm in the movie theatre and everybody else has gone. As long as the credits are rolling, I'm watching. I particularly look for names of those that have contributed some aspect of the film that I found interesting....whether it be in the editing or special effects, the score, wardrobe, what have you. If it's something has struck me, I'll look them up on IMDB and see what else they've done. Also, as one who has worked in the industry, I look for names of people I know or have worked with. As a regular viewer, most people don't realize just how much goes into the film making process. I even look at who catered for the set! lol. I'm also fascinated by instances of nepotism. Meaning, I look for names in certain areas that are recognizable and the person is possibly a relative or descendant of an industry old-timer. There is a wealth of information to be found in the credits if people were interested or took the time to sit through them!

I always stay for the credits in the movie theater and I usually let my DVDs play all the way through the end of the credits. The way I see it, if I enjoyed the movie I should at least watch all the names of the people who made it possible scroll by. I'm also a film student so I enjoy seeing all the different jobs listed. Staying after the credits gives me a chance to talk to my friends about the movie before we go. Since the theater is basically empty at that point it doesn't really bother anyone.

I'm "watching" but I can't say I'm really watching.I just listen to the music from the credits.Not reading names only when I'm interested of an character and want to find out his/her name but that's rare.

Sometimes the music's good. Sometimes there are funny bits at the end. 28 Days Later had an alternate ending after the credits. I also get a laugh at the "All characters and events are fictitious ..." bit if it's a movie like Avatar or Shrek. However I can't help wondering if anybody looks at the closing credits and says, "Wow the caterer, the accountant and the second assistant best boy gaffer grip did good work, I should get them for my movie!"

I seldom watch credits. I think it is just a waste of time even if it lasts only a few minutes. Sometimes I stay for the credits because there are some movies that still show some scenes after the credits. Maybe they do this to entice viewers to watch and stay for the credits. That is one nice technique they have and effective too.

I was watching Aladdin 2 while visiting with a friend - actually, we were mostly visiting and her son was watching the movie (back in the day of VHS tapes.) Anyway, he would always stop the tape and run it back as soon as the credits start to roll and watch it again. But that time he was distracted by something and the credits finished and the little short bad guy was hanging from a tree and said "can someone get me down?" I laughed, she ran it back because she hadn't ever seen it before either and I said I had been wondering what had happened to him since he flew through the air and wasn't seen again. After that, even the kid (well, he's now 24) would let it run to the end at least once to see if there were any prizes at the end...

I do watch the end credits . Or should I say i see them in the theater and on a Premium channel like HBO . But When I see a movie on a channel who turns off the sound of the end credits or splits the screen to put on a promo, I change the channel. Some of my favorite films have a great song playing as they roll the credits. And some films like Cannonball Run and The Simpsons have some funny things added to the credits.Usually i wait to see what songs were played and if there is a soundtrack.
