    Default How often do you stay for the end credits of the movie?

    Yet another poll. The question is how often do you stay during the credits.

    I only stay longer than needed so I dont get trampled by all the people trying to leave at once. So I usually see about the first 20 seconds of it so there will be enough room for me to leave comfortably, then im gone.

    Mostly I watch at home and only watch them if I want to know something specific. Often that's the music and its so annoying that they're always last.

    I'm mainly interested in it because of the special effects companies that worked on the film. But they're also usually near the end of the credits. They're actually normally the last of the major credits before the song and copyright credits.

    And of course, we need to know that no animals were harmed during the making of the film.

    I like watching credits to the end although I'm usually waiting for the soundtrack.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Also, there are sometimes scenes after the credits. This happens in a lot of John Hughes movies.

    So I guess FM and I are the main movie geeks thus far! (Although I can sense FM does it for more than just watching them! )

    Yeh, I had to pay for one again after a friend told me what I missed... why do they do that? I do like the out takes during credits and watch then.

    It's interesting that when I used to live in New Jersey, nobody stayed for the credits. In Los Angeles, nearly half the audience stays.
