Sometimes the experience of watching a movie extends after the end. It prolongs into the end credits with a perfect pair of music and shots, montage of stills, clips... and makes you stick around a bit more on enjoying it.

Which closing ending sequence is the best?

Nice to see a fellow end credits buff! Always staying till the end, always rewarded with something. :)  I really hope that my feature films will always have end credits that will make most of the audience stay till the very end. 

FYC: 
The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) (credits)
F/X (1986) (credits)
Natural Born Killers (1994) (credits)
Lost Highway (1997) (credits)
Inspector Gadget (1999) (credits)
Inland Empire (2006) (credits)

Bonus: "Twin Peaks" Part 5 (credits) and Part 14 (credits). Actually, 2017 series in entirety. 

Also wanted to suggest Finding Nemo (2003) (but it's impossible to find a good video) and Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) (which is still in theaters). 

P.S. Needed to type and insert the links TWICE due to browser failing just after I completed. Still went for re-doing, despite it being 5:11 AM. I just love the subject too much. :)

Thanks for your contribution. ;)

Fact, this rolling down credits from bottom to top is unusual on movies. It's kind disturbing because i'm accustomed to the reverse technique. Added.

Thanks for your contribution. ;)

Not sure about the best but the worst would be BEING THERE, if there was one movie that certainly didn't need to end with a 'bloopers' sequence, it this one.

I also didn't like the Bollywood choreography at the end of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, a film that tried to play it like an entertaining drama didn't need to give the audience what "they expected" just because it's set in India... not to mention that Jamal (SPOILER**********) had just lost his brother, it's not like he would feel like dancing. 

The best end credits? With no hesitation:

WILD THINGS (1998)

'Fun poll. And tough choice.

May I suggest a small edit in the intro? (replaced on with comma)

Sometimes the experience of watching a movie extends after the end. It prolongs into the end credits with a perfect pair of music and shots, montage of stills, clips... and makes you stick around a bit more, enjoying it.

Thanks for the correction.

About the suggestion, that doesn't count as final credits. It's at the end of the movie, but before credits.
If this were integrated into the credits, it would count.

Great idea!  FYC:
Chicken Little - "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart"
Avengers: Age of Ultron - Showing the Statue of the Heroes.

By the way, It might help if you briefly describe what happens during the credits of these movies, so people know.  :)

SeventhAr7,

I have to say this one is one of my favorite polls. I like the way you added YouTube links so that everyone can watch and then decide the option they want to vote. You have done an wonderful work. Please try to keep up the good work.

Oh...and my favorite is 'Slumdog Millionaire', I love the "Jai Ho" song by A. R. Rahman.

On that list, I'd say A series of Unfortunate Events, being a dream sequence about a constant hide and seek between the Baudelaires and Count olaf.

Time Bandits, with George Harrison's "Dream Away" playing over a red-tinted montage of stills from the movie, recapping the journey you've just been on. If you leave or stop the movie during this, you have no heart.
