I know that financing movies can be a complicated business but I'm becoming increasingly irritated by the endless stream - at the beginning of some films - of 'A XXXX production (with darling corporate mini badge movie) in cooperation with YYYY (with their scenic corporate mini badge movie) and ZZZZ (with their scenic corporate mini badge movie) and QQQQ (with their scenic corporate mini badge movie) and......and......

Last night's first offering had six (6) credits for various film/finance companies who were involved in or sponsoring the production and by the time we'd arrived at the actual movie, I could barely be bothered. Unless it's on streaming like Netflix, you can't even jump to the actual film or decide that you've got two minutes to make a coffee - and that would rather defeat the purpose anyway for the companies involved.

Does anyone else skip the intros?

Lol yes it gets on my nerves too. Especially as it seems mandatory to have really quirky/cute names.. just annoying :-/

Its ok if there's a good soundtrack.
At the end credits sometimes I have to hear the whole song -for example Van Morrison at the end of Proof of Life,or The National at the end of The East,or I see fire (can't remember but think it was at the end of the last Hobbit film)
