    I recently saw XXX and was blown away by the CG that was created for the closing credits. It was basically like a visual thrill ride that leaves you breathless. This made me wonder if other credits are as good. Does anyone have a favorite movie credit? The content could be anything: outtakes, a short segment, backgrounds, or even presentation of names.

    Master of Disguise had cool ending credits that were colorful and everything. Too bad the film was a piece of crap.

    Around the World in Eighty Days - Best end credits, ever, IMO. No other film has matched the genius of Saul Bass's title designs for this film. Plus, Victor Young's whimsical musical score adds to the fun.

    Other end credits I feel are top-notch are...

    Citizen Kane
    MST3K: The Movie
    Kung Pow: Enter The Fist

    Seven has cool credits...scrolling down instead of up, and maintain the look of the opening credits. I also like the credits for Dogma.

    "A Bug's Life", the first CG movie with premeditated blooper reels to accompany the credit roll. I laughed so hard the first time I saw that.

    You can add Toy Story 2 to the list with its "outtakes."

    I haven't seen the Monsters Inc. outtakes yet, but I will when the DVD comes out.

    They aren't closing credits, but I LOVED the opening credits to Panic Room. They were so cool looking. Fight Club and Seven were cool too. I guess Fincher just has a knack for credits (and movie making as well).
