You know how old movies have credits at the start? I prefer that.
No way! You can’t turn it off or leave!
Sometimes there are ultra slow motion shots of characters staring down the barrel of the camera and throwing something (money/glitter) in the air so it lands around them and it looks cool for some reason
Gives the director a chance to do something interesting, also means I can faff about before settling down properly.
Absolute gospel this. I have enormous respect when a modern film does a proper opening credit sequence

This is why you’re banned from blockbuster
Just amused at the idea of trying to finish yourself off before the film starts
All coming up seems should cease to exist after how good they did it in Beats.
Ah right, yeah. I suppose that is fairly funny
Long scenes with no cuts, each more gratuitous than the last
Opening scene of a series is for no real reason taken from a point in the timeline that we won’t reach until episode 8. It will be presented as a massive cliffhanger but turn out to be a fairly irrelevant moment. I honestly think they just make the whole series and then look for a clip they can just copy and paste into the opening credits.
nice to have a film just say ‘end’ and then stop too
Grief eating an entire chocolate pie in a single shot
Character X saying something like ‘character Y really likes me and we’re great friends’ then a quick cut to character Y somewhere else saying ‘I hate character X’
Feel like arrested development is responsible for this
Arrested Development with a mix of Edgar Wright? I blame him entirely for jump cuts
