...and for the record. I prefer my movies to just start please, completely devoid of any credits and such until the end.
Don't know if it is still true but the Academy requires the film Title, Director, Producer and maybe 1 or 2 other names to roll at the beginning or it will not be considered for an Academy award. There was controversy with a film that had the Title only (if I remember correctly) and was excluded from consideration. Conversely, at one time (maybe still true) some directors / producers put all the credits at the front because the film is so bad that you would not see the entire film or if you did, would wait for the credits to finish.
