Here are a few of our favorites.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, with its now de rigueur post-credits “hidden” scenes, has kept legions of viewers’ asses plopped firmly in their Fanta-stained seats well after the final credits start rolling. The latest MCU post-credits scene, following the conclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy, is too good to ruin here, but I’ll say two spoiler-free things about it: It fit in perfectly with the tone of the movie itself, and it will likely go over the heads of most people under age 30.

For any teenaged readers who thought Marvel was the progenitor of this post-credit-scene business, think again — it’s been going on for decades. Early on, though, it was a rare and unexpected thing that most people found out about only after someone said, “Did you stay until the very end??” Because there was no YouTube, people either had to pay to see the film again in theaters or wait until it came out on VHS to see the scene.

Some of the best post-credits sequences tease sequels (some of which never happened), put a little cherry on top of the material you just saw, or feature an outtake or off-script riffing (which happen more commonly during end credits these days). Some of our favorite post-credits scenes on this list are simply ones that make me reminisce on my childhood.

Which reminds me: YouTube Powers That Be, how can you NOT have a video sequence of Raul Julia’s M. Bison sticking his hand out of the rubble after the credits of 1994′s Street Fighter?!?? That’s classic stuff!


Kill Bill (2003) – This quickie scene is an outtake of Uma Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo ripping an eyeball out of a member of the Crazy 88 army, clearly delighting in it. It should get fans excited for the rumored upcoming release of both Kill Bill films combined.


Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) – This 45-second sequence is just as irreverent as the movie that preceded it; while it worked back then, it now serves as a reminder that the Ron Burgundy schtick is kinda played out after a decade. Raise your hand if you actually *loved* Anchorman 2. Thought so.


The Fast and the Furious (2001) – This scene shows Vin Diesel’s Dominic driving through Baja, having successfully escaped the cops in the states. It set the pace for a franchise continuity that’s 13 years and running. Fast and Furious films are awesome. More please.


Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) – Because this is footage of an actual building being demolished, I am pretty sure the filmmakers didn’t pay for it considering it’s a scene that few people would see, because people didn’t stay past the credits in 1992. My guess is the building was being blown to bits anyway, so they filmed it and had Mel Gibson and Danny Glover dubbed talking in character over the video. Pretty lazy, if you ask me.


Iron Man (2008) – Since the original Iron Man was the first movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and arguably still the best), its post-credits scene introducing Samuel L. Jackson as (black!) Nick Fury is still the most memorable, as it left nerdboys salivating for what MCU had to offer. With few exceptions, it hasn’t let us down.


Crank (2006) – Made when people were still funding Jason Statham-led films, Crank wasn’t very memorable in general. But its post-credits sequence — a 16-second recap of the film reimagined as a 16(ish)-bit video game — is cool mainly because it’s so unique.


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) – An awesome film from the roota to the toota that aged remarkably well, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off kept viewers watching throughout the end credits roll, only for Ferris to tell everyone to shove off. If there’s an earlier post-credits scene that matters, I know nothing about it.


Masters of the Universe (1987) - Every little snot-nosed ’80s kid loved He-Man, and the live-action movie was extra-awesome. For little boys, that is. Everyone else hated it, which means Skeletor was never able to make good on his Ahnuld-esque “I’ll be back” post-credits promise.

America’s pop-culture infatuation with movies is perhaps only rivaled by its obsession with cars as well. So it’s no surprise that movies account for the most iconic cars in the nation’s history, save for maybe Kennedy’s Lincoln and O.J.’s white Ford Bronco.

However, just because a car is iconic doesn’t mean that it’s desirable. Well, sometimes it does, but fame isn’t much of a virtue in and of itself. For that reason, you won’t see any Fast and the Furious cars on here. Because they’re not cool. They’re ridiculous. You WILL see the A-Team’s van on this list, which is a also a ridiculous car, but since it often contained Mr. T, the van is both ridiculous AND cool.

You see? You’ll see.

Cameron’s Dad’s Ferrari

In the discussion of the most iconic cars in Hollywood history. The 1962 Ferrari GT California is an amazing car, but the fact that it’s the “Ferris Bueller car” makes it even more attractive. Of course, the car gets destroyed at the end of the film, but breathe easy ¬– it was a replica. A real Ferrari GT (of which there are only 100 or so in the world) was used for the close-up shots, but three replicas were built for the driving and wreck scenes.

One of the replicas was featured in a Minneapolis Planet Hollywood, then made its way down south of the border to the one in Cancun. Not exactly a dignified end, even for a replica.

Stuntman Mike’s Deathproof Car

In the back half of the Grindhouse double feature, Deathproof, Kurt Russell stars as Stuntman Mike, a charming driver who ends up murdering girls by picking them up in his 1971 Chevy Nova. But aside from bearing a passing similarity to a production version of the car, Mike’s car couldn’t be much more different. Encased in safety devices and a roll cage, the car is meant to keep Mike safe while he kills just about everyone else. Of course, it turns out that the car isn’t completely Deathproof, but it’s reliable enough that I would put it head-to-head with a Volvo to ensure peace of mind for soccer moms.

Eleanor

It’s a little disheartening to include a car that was so clearly featured in Gone in 60 Seconds to occupy spots on lists like this one. However, this list isn’t to take into account the producers’ intentions, and the 1967 Shelby GT500 is bad ass enough that it makes the cut, intentions aside.

The car has gotten so popular that the estate of film creator Toby Halicki has had to put the kibosh on several shops around the world that were producing and selling “Eleanor” replicas without any licensing arrangements.

Can you blame them? That’s a pretty sweet ride.

The Off-Roading Shelby GT

Taking things in the other direction with a more subdued presentation of the GT500 The Thomas Crown Affair remake just offhandedly shows us just exactly how TC rolls with his Mustang sporting several off-roading modifications when he takes a jaunt to Martinique. It’s got off-roading tires, fender flares, a lighted roll bar, and doors that are welded shut. It’s an inspired car that takes some serious aftermarket work that makes the ride look classy as hell. Just like the businessman himself.

No wonder Rene Russo gave it up so easily.

Crockett’s Testarossa

It’s a dated dinosaur these days, but the connotations of what this Miami Vice ride meant in the 1980’s lends the ride enough credibility to make it still the object of envy. There’s perhaps no car that emits “flash” as much as this 1986 Ferrari Testarossa, which Ferrari graciously loaned to the show after they thought that the original car, a 1972 Ferrari Daytona (which was actually a replica). The replacement Testarossa still embodies a lot of what the 1980’s and Miami stand for. Namely, crass consumerism and a lot of decisions fueled by cocaine.

The A-Team’s Van

The fact that the producers of The A-Team were able to make a van look cool enough to get on this list is a testament to just how great this “car” was. It’s a modified GMC Vandura (!) It’s “tricked out” in almost hilarious fashion with red hubcaps, a red racing stripe, and a rear spoiler, because aerodynamics on a cargo van make all the difference.

One of the six original vans is on display in Keswick, England, which is so un-American that I want to have a second war for independence right now.

K.I.T.T.

Yup. We’ve entered the “cheesy 1980’s cars” section of the list, in case there was any doubt. K.I.T.T. stands for “Knight Industries Two Thousand” and was a modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am, a car that looks really great when matched with a black leather jacket. For those who are younger than 25 or so, the car was featured on the ridiculous David Hasselhoff series Knight Rider.

More importantly than the design, was the personality of the car itself, which was voiced by William Daniels, who is perhaps best known as Boy Meets World’s Mr. Feeny. Sometimes driving (and living) can get lonely, and it’s nice to know that when things start piling up against you that there’s a chatty 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am to listen to your problems.

That’s what I dream about.

Honda shoved their new Super Bowl ad starring Matthew Broderick up our Inter-butts today. The ad sees Broderick parodying his most well-known film, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, as he calls in sick to work and goes on a wild adventure in his Honda CR-V. His stops include the Museum of Natural History, singing in a parade, and outfoxing the studio head. Pretty entertaining spot. Though his tiger-striped vest is sorely missed.

Ferris Bueller – Honda

Over the years, advertisers have relied on film parodies to help peddle their wares to varying degrees of success. Below are some that made us laugh, made us groan, and made us change the channel.

Back To The Future – Nike

Back To The Future fans have been waiting years for the chance to own Marty McFly’s fresh kicks. Nike finally decided to get around to doing it and as a result, we have this maxi-commercial starring Bill Hader, Kevin Durant, and Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd. It’s no surprise to see Lloyd reprise the role for an advertisement. He’s done so in the past and has appeared in a string of low-budget projects in the past few years. Which is a shame. The man’s a great actor. That’s why the BTTF fan in me is happy to see Doc on the screen again.

Back To The Future – Spike

However, when Spike TV decided to honor Back To The Future at the 2010 Scream Awards, they landed a coup by putting Michael J. Fox back in the driver’s seat of the DeLorean (which was destroyed by a train last I checked **smug nerd noise**). Previously, Fox had never reprised the role and this appearance was an awesome salute to pop culture. Here’s hoping they never remake these films.

The Wizard of Oz – FedEx

Using computer sorcery, FedEx found a way to travel back in time and take control of The Wizard of Oz‘s Lollipop Guild. Either that or they used a really good graphics program. It’s a pretty clever ad that shows the dangers that can happen when supplies are cut off to the Munchkin’s Village.

Simpler times, those 80’s. Actually, wait. No. More complex times. The high school hierarchy was tantamount to an Indian caste system, everyone was meaner because they were on cocaine, and it seems like bullies were a bigger threat than al-Qaeda is today.

So, more complex times, I guess. But it’s hard not to long for the era represented in movies of our childhood. We can’t relive those days, but we can still dress like the 80’s. Recently, Nike made the announcement that they’re releasing Marty McFly’s Nikes from Back to the Future 2. They might not have power laces, but it’s insane to think that these won’t be the hottest shoes since #23 laced up.

Are we nostalgic yet? Technically, those “80’s” shoes were from the future, but since we’re talking McFly, let’s look back at some 80’s fashions we’d like to bring back while we’re bringing back 80’s shoes that were actually supposed to be from this era. I’ve got a headache.

And in case you missed it, here’s the Nike ad for Marty’s shoes…


9. Hockey Jersey

Hockey jerseys: when sweatpants aren’t apathetic enough. Nowadays, the only champion of the hockey jersey is (shudder) Kevin Smith. It used to be that wearing one meant you didn’t give a damn in a cool way. Now it seems to mean you just don’t give a damn.

Icons: Cameron (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)

8. Canadian Tuxedo

Here’s an instance of Back to the Future displaying a fashion that actually is from the 80’s. Denim. Denim wherever you can cram it into your outfit. The more the better. You won’t look ridiculous. You’ll look like a sleek urban cowboy, only instead of rustling steer, you’ll rustle up women and jealous stares.

Icons: Marty McFly (Back to the Future) Audrey Griswold (European Vacation)

7. Shoulder Pads For Girls

Linebackers ARE sexy. So it’s no wonder that women took the initiative to give themselves wide, angular shoulders that made them look like walking V’s. Of course, congestion in narrow hallways reached an all-time high, so the style was dropped as quickly as it was embraced. However, with today’s hallways bigger than ever, let the women broaden their shoulders.

Icons: Every Heather (Heathers), Working Girls (Working Girl)
