Up to 4:30 lengths per break now? Crikey.

 

It again could be perception, but it seemed once upon a time you could count the number of then shorter 30-40sec slots before un-muting again to 4-5 (or so I thought) to hit the 2/2.30 mark.

 

 

 

You'll also note the new norm is put credits in a PnP window (a change after cutting them off and people complaining.. not that they are visible/readable!) and scroll them fast so they can either switch straight to the next one. Or throw another break in between.

This one always confuses me. Hollywood people (not just actors but all the behind-the-scenes people too) generally belong to strong unions, I would have thought that they would have rules in place about giving their members proper credit on all screenings of movies/TV shows that they were involved in. Cutting out the credits or shrinking/speeding them up would seem to go against this. But maybe this isn't the case?

I personally find it irritating. Often I want to look at the credits.
