Stay through the credits, as there are 3 mid-credit scenes and 1 end credit scene that pays off a running joke from the film.

It felt a little strange to be the only person leaving when the credits rolled at The Dead Don't Die. If I missed something, oh well. 

It was also strange to go into a theater and have to stand in a maze of partitioning (or whatever the word for it is) instead of just walking up and buying a ticket

It feels like now most post credit scenes end up online.

i was glad I knew there were none in Endgame, as I had use to bathroom so badly, I could not have waited the 5-10 minutes more.

I did that at the new Godzilla. Don't care if I missed anything.

I really liked Toy Story 4. I'd say it was the funniest of all 4 movies. Lots of great running bits. I did have an issue with the ending, however

Spoiler

I did not like Woody deciding to stay behind and leave the Buzz and the rest of the toys. To me, it goes against everything Woody has stood for in the prior 3 films. He has ALWAYS been about being there for his kid. Now that he's no longer his new kid's favorite toy and he sometimes gets left behind or forgotten about, he just up and leaves? He spent how many years in Andy's toybox just waiting to be picked up for the briefest moment. He was willing to live in the attic forever just to be there when Andy might want to be with him. But now......he "gets lost" and leaves. Nope. Didn't care for it at all. And it didn't seem like Buzz and the rest of the toys really took it all that hard. What seemed like it should've been a huge emotional moment fell flat for me because I just couldn't believe Woody would actually do that and leave his kid no matter what the circumstances. Now, maybe if it were Buzz making that choice or something I'd understand and see it more. But not Woody. 

Other than that, though, I did like the film a lot. All the new characters were great. I'd say it's kind of a toss up right now between this and 3 for my #2 fav in the series (which goes 1,3,4,2 right now) May take a few more viewings to see where it finally settles on my list.

So I did a lot of thinking about the movie lately because my daughter kept bringing it up or we kept talking about it. What you said makes a ton of sense and I guess adds on to something I thought about:

Spoiler

I'm on board with everything you said. In addition, you have to think back to Andy giving Woody to Bonnie and saying Woody was the most important toy and to take good care of him and what not. So not only does Woody give up on Bonnie and being there for his kid, Bonnie gives up on him too, but not totally. We wound up watching Toy Story 1, 2, and 3 and Bonnie is younger than Andy was in 1. To not think that it's just a phase where she made a toy out of a spork is pretty silly when he stuck with Andy through more neglect than that. Bonnie would likely see Woody's importance again.

The other problem is something these movies have missed out on, which is that when you get older and have your own kids you give your kid the toys that were important to you. Woody could have stuck around holding out hope that he would one day get returned to Andy. Or going back to 3, Andy would have realistically held onto Woody to one day pass down to his son or daughter.
