Page 3.14 and Jennifer Ouellette (and many others, see links therein) discuss Iron Man II. Julia and I saw it last night. It is good.

When the credits come on, if you stand up and walk out you are a chump. Even though they are the longest credits ever shown in movie history (IMHO) you must stay to the end.

Have you ever considered the TCO of a handgun (in Minnesota)? Screaming into the Abyss has. ‘Cept he does not include the cost of liability insurance.

    I’m not so sure on longest credits. I found The Secret of Nimh’s credits to be pretty damn long, as it took more than 5 minutes to get through on fast forward on my old VCR… 🙂

    Tough, I didn’t pay to watch the credits. I must not do anything you say.

    Yeah, nix that on the “must stay through the credits” thing. The 3 second ad for another movie at the end was immensely stupid looking.

    I always sit through the credits, easter egg surprises are just common enough to make it worth my while.

    My favorite was at the end of “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”. It tied up a loose end I didn’t even know was there. 🙂
