If we learned anything from Napoleon Dynamite we learned two things
1. ‘Skills’ matter.
2. Sometimes, you better stay for the credits. Otherwise, you might miss a delicious Bass.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. I’ve been there myself. There’s quite a bit of pressure involved in staying. The credits start to roll. The lights may start to come up. The theater employees start to filter in to clean up the debris. The credits start to drag on. You’re good through the director, the producer and maybe even the screenplay credits. Now the more obscure start to appear…key grip (what the hell is a ‘key grip’?), wardrobe, set assistants….the pressure starts to build. Your significant other was ready to leave 10 minutes ago. The soundtrack information starts to roll. The condensation runs down the side of your Cherry Coke in the drink holder. You’re the last 2 people in the theater. Finally, the Dolby Digital logo, the DTS logo, the copyright information! Will your patience be rewarded?
Sometimes, in the case of say, a Napoleon Dynamite or an Iron Man, yes. More often, there’s no payoff and you’re left feeling like an idiot, the theater employees think you’re an idiot and your significant other is sure you’re an idiot.
Well, fear no longer my friends, for now we have MovieStinger. MovieStinger lets you know what movies have bonus scenes, images, etc. during and after the credits. So head on over, check them out and know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em. Knowledge is power.
