After The Credits Roll...

Is there anything more irritating than a great movie that ends with a dream sequence or an ending that just ruins everything? Movie ending botches have plagued Hollywood for decades, mistakes in the first part of the movie can usually be forgiven, but the ending is usually the most memorable and leaves a lasting impression so it had better be good. Now when a movie ends whether we’re feeling happy, sad, terrified or simply want to fist pump the air in sheer amazement, this becomes the moment where we step away from the world that we have been indulged in for the last two or three hours and return to our normal lives. But do you ever stop to think would happen after the credits roll?

We don’t mean that you finish your last gulp of pop, head to your car and discuss what you just witnessed. We mean what happens in movie land after the credits roll? Harry Potter may have aced his exams in his Defence Against the Dark Arts class but that wouldn’t get him a job in his local McDonalds so how is he supposed to support his family?

So as an introduction to our After The Credits Roll series we bring you just a taster of what’s to come. We have scoured the interweb for some of the greatest movie endings of all time and answer that burning question of what happens next?

 

Grease

 

What a lovely movie ending! Sandy does the good girl gone bad thing years before Rihanna was even a twinkle in her parents eye. The whole school of middle aged teens break out into a dip da dip da dip doowop da doobee doo and Sandy and Danny drive off into the sky in Greased Lightning. That's the issue, does the car stop? How do they get down safe? Why is no one surprised to see a car take off? This movie is set in the 50's, someone somewhere must’ve thought that it was a UFO and tried to shoot it down. There is no scenario where this is a happy ending after the credits roll.

 

The Shawshank Redemption

 

Another iconic ending to another iconic movie. Red, violating his parole, goes to Zihuatanejo to find Andy. He finds him working on a boat on a beach and the two embrace. But what happens after the credits roll? Seriously what happens next? The only guilty guy at Shawshank Penitentiary will always admit to where he has been for the last 40 years. The Pacific may be as blue as his dreams but he’s not going to be getting a job anytime soon is he? Hope may be a great thing and it is this emotion that gave this story the ending that we all wanted to see, but hope doesn’t exactly pay the bills now does it?

 

The Breakfast Club

 

“But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.” The group have all learnt deep truths about each other and have created special and romantic bonds thanks to their time together over the course of that Saturday. And Brian gets the pleasure… of writing the essay for the whole club. John raises his fist in triumph and the credits roll… We don’t know why John was so happy, he had another couple of weeks of detention coming his way thanks to his behaviour over the day. He isn’t going to have a great time every week now is he?

Here's a great subtle way to show love for an absolutely classic movie - The Shawshank Redemption. It features a distressed screenprint-effect print of an advert for a possible outcome after the credits roll "Dufresne and Redding Fishing Charters, Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

We hope that you enjoyed the first taste of our After The Credits Roll series. Next month we will have a Halloween movie special. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or head on over to social where you can find us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat.
