i thought my wife was the only person in the world who did this :fyi:

Whenever I go to the movies, about 2/3 or more of the audience stays until the end of the credits, I think most people do these days.


the last movie we saw was robin hood...and she/we stayed until the end... we were the only ones in the theater...no extra scene...the only reason she stays is to hear the soundtrack music

i'm curious though...since i've never seen one...is it an outtake...is it a blooper...cuz if it's not, i can't imagine why anyone would want to see one extra scene of a movie they have just seen in its entirety ...what's the point?

They are called 'Easter eggs' and they are there as a kind of 'secret' for the audience to discover by accident

You've honestly never seen any of the 'after credits scenes'?

Often the last scene at the end of the credits reveals information about what is coming next, or it even reverses what you thought the real ending was......

There are so many examples these days I can't even remember all of them....okay let's see

The last scene after the end credits of 'The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe' reveals that the children will visit Narnia again

The last scene after the end of Iron Man shows Tony Stark being visited by Nick Fury talking about the 'Avenger Initiative'

The last scene at the end of 'Daredevil' reveals that Bulls Eye survived (a direct reversal of the 'before credits' ending)

The last scene at the end of Iron Man 2 reveals Thor's hammer discovered in the desert

The last scene at the end of Wolverine showed several different things depending on which version you saw

The last scene at the end of X-Men: The Last Stand reveals that Professor X survived and that Magneto is gaining his powers back (yet another direct reversal of the 'before credits' ending)

The last scene after the end credits of 'The Simpsons Movie' actually mocks the modern fad of adding an extra scene after the end credits by having Maggie say 'sequel?' and then everyone groans....

And I could name many other examples if my memory was better

Bottom line is that at least 2/3 of summer blockbuster type movies do have a scene after the credits are over, and audiences are aware of this fact and tend to hang around to see it....when there is no scene at the end, you can often hear the audiences express disappointment, audiences have become sophisticated and they look for and expect these 'Easter eggs'

well that certainly makes sense... guess it kinda says a lot about how few movies we have seen on the big screen...i can think of maybe 4 or at most 5 since we saw Passion of the Christ... though none had "Easter eggs"

I hear Inception is great. Going this weekend. Predators was good. Would rank it just behind the original '87 flick. Solid sequel.

I lean toward Rushintuit's opinion. Still there are a few good ones. Take for example "Casablanca"

ds (15) said Inception was amazing and kept him up all night thinking about it.

The first one I remember is at the end of the Ferris Bueller's Day Off credits. Not saying it was the first one, just the first I can recall seeing in the theaters. Or maybe it was Back to the Future? I think that may have had one too.

Well, most movies Mr. Mea and I have seen do not have an extra scene, but yes, anyone who doesn't stay is a fool, 'cuz you just never know. Ok, maybe not a fool, but it's still fun to see the extras (Ferris Buhler, Crocadile Dundee, and The Man From Snowy River all had little bits at the end. And of course, all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies did.)

Hardly anyone stays with Mr. Mea and me. There were just 4 of us at the Sorceror's Apprentice. It's not uncommon, though; when we saw A Christmas Carol at the I-Max last December, one of the ushers announced before the movie started that there was nothing after the credits so we could empty the theater as soon as the credits started.

My wife and I stay until the fellow comes in to clean up. We ask him if there is any scene at the end.

I tend to go to movies on opening night, which is the best night to go to a movie because that's when all the biggest movie fans go, the audiences on opening night are better.

Just a general comment. I'm impressed with Rushintuit's desire to develop holiness in his life. I hope he keeps on gently reminding us that our choices do matter. We do go to some movies but are very careful about the ones we go to, though once in a while we are tricked. I'm thankful for Rushintuit's reminders.

Inception was great - I just saw it. Not only does the plot make you concentrate, there is some excellent dialogue - something sadly lacking in most of today's mass market movies. The acting is also first rate with no weak performances anywhere.

Amen to that! I was on the premiere of The Dark Knight, it aired two minutes after midnight. Everybody sat silently and watched.

As for Robin Hood, I liked it as a movie. But if it wasn't about Robin Hood all they had to do was change a few names...

I haven't seen Inception yet. I'm going to see it on my birthday with some friends.

But I must say; Leonardo DiCaprio gets better and better.

It isn't a bad philosophy, but it's like boycotting every company that does bad things. You wouldn't have anyone left you aren't boycotting, and while you could just never go see a movie, I do enjoy it. I have and will continue to avoid certain movies for political/religious reasons when the producers, actors, or director or whomever are either notorious and widely known for their beliefs or include them in their movies. That's good enough for me. I'm not a teetotaler.
