Stingers

A post-credits scene (also called a stinger, tag, credit cookie, Easter egg or movie coda) is a short clip that appears after some or all of the closing credits of a film have run. It is usually either included for humour (where it may be called a "stinger gag") or to set up a possible sequel, as well as to inspire the audience to stay through the credits during the theatrical release.

The Media Stinger website has a list of all movies with stingers. I've added the link to my links page, or click here for a detailed (and frequently updated) list. Now you'll never leave a movie too soon, or look like a dick for staying until the end if nothing else happens!

Enjoy, and darn it: 'Buried' (2010) has a stinger and I didn't stay until the end.
