Most Paused Movie Moments Of All Time
Do you enjoy watching movies at home or in the theater? While both provide a different kind of experience, for me its always going to be the former. Enjoying a movie in your home in your comfortable position eating whatever you want has got to be better than watching it in a theater. Besides if you miss any scene, you can always rewind and see it again.
Nowadays, you can watch new movies on your computer via streaming without even having to rent any DVDs. And you can watch them anytime you want, and pause and play any scene as many times as you wish.
Lets take a look at the top 14 movie moments which you simply cannot continue watching without pausing at least a couple of times.
1. Psycho (1960)
Alfred Hitchcock was considered by many to be the master of suspense and his movie “Psycho” is regarded as one of his best works ever. The movies had several thrilling scenes, but the most thrilling one was when Norman Bates got arrested. A human skull was present in place of his face as soon as the camera was pointed towards him. You just can’t continue watching the movie without pausing a few times during this scene.
2. Scanners (1981)
This film by David Cronenberg is an all time classic. The scene where the psychic powers emerged was probably the most important part of the movie. Michael Ironside shows a glimpse of his psychic powers in one of these scenes by exploding the head of a person. Everything happens so fast that we need to look at it a few more times to understand what happened.
3. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
Jessica Rabbit was probably one of the most sexual characters in the history of cartoon and in one of the scenes, she went full commando. But as you know she doesn’t exist in real life!
4. Total Recall (1990)
Arnold Schwarzenegger was the star of this movie – his character was brutal, and he did full justice to this cruel and violent character. However, the most surprising scene was probably that of a three-breasted woman. I am sure everyone who has watched this movie has paused a few times to look at those closely.
5. Basic Instinct (1992)
T0pless scenes were in almost every movie around that time, but this movie broke all barriers. Sharon Stone had her legendary scene in this film, when she kept her legs crossed during interrogation. And as you can realize a lot more was shown than just her undergarments.
6. Wild Things (1998)
Neve Campbell had a wild scene in the 1998 movie, Wild Things when she and Denise Richards kissed. I am sure you will take a second glance at this scene.
7. Fight Club (1999)
I think almost every adult has seen this excellent movie. Like the other ones above, this one doesn’t have any pornographic scene. However, you will be forced to pause and play throughout the film, because the entire movie is so confusing. And the twist that comes at the end of the movie makes it an all time classic.
8. She’s the Man (2006)
Amanda Bynes is the female lead of this movie, and when she lifts her shirt to show other boys that she is a female, I am sure even the audience, especially teenagers, were hoping for some “real” proof. That is why this movie became so popular among teenagers all over the world.
9. Iron Man (2008)
Iron Man came out in 2008, and at that time, we had no idea that there is going to be an Avengers movie. But subtle hints were present throughout the film. Look at this picture taken from one of the scenes of the first Iron Man movie. Can you see the shield of Captain America? However, it was just a prototype at that moment.
10. Burn After Reading (2008)
This movie by the Coen brothers had some massive shocks. And it doesn’t come as a surprise because this duo is well known for their violent and action scenes. In one of the scenes, Brad Pitt is in the closet, when he gets shot in just a fraction of a second. The whole thing occurred so fast that you would probably have to rewind and play it again to understand what happened.
11. Cabin in the Woods (2012)
If you have seen this movie, you probably remember this scene, where the scientists were discussing how to end the lives of the heroes. In the background, there was a white board with names of all kinds of monsters created by these scientists. I am sure many of us have replayed and paused that scene several times to figure out whether we have heard of some of those names.
12. Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
This movie made Margot Robbie one of the sex icons of this modern generation. And in this scene where she spreads her legs, we all wanted to see what Leo was witnessing. So don’t say that you never replayed that scene! That would be a lie
13. Man of Steel (2013)
The main reason why this movie is present here is that it dropped a few hints of Batman Vs Superman in the future. In this picture, you can see that the satellite Superman chose while fighting in outer space belonged to Wayne Enterprises.
14. Jurassic World (2015)
This one is not like the others, cause this one is amusing! Remember the scene where the pterodactyls were attacking the visitors in the park? Well, there we find Jimmy Buffet still having his food while searching for a shaker of salt! Don’t believe us? Watch the movie again and look carefully this time.
