If you are a big fan of watching movies at home, we’re sure you know how valuable the ‘pause’ button is. For example, the tool allows you to stop the film for a while if you are feeling overwhelmed. That way, you can take a breather and digest things first before proceeding. Other than that, the button can be useful too if you need to pee or get some food. Well that’s the huge advantage of watching on your couch as opposed to sitting in a theater, right?
In other instances though, hitting the pause button is also perfect for catching little details that most casual viewers might miss in first viewing. Case in point, this list compiled by Providr gives us the 28 most paused moments in movie history – like ever!
Read on and see for yourself.
#1. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
Young Phoebe Cates plays Linda Barrett in this movie and in one scene, she went for an afternoon swim with Stacy Hamilton, played by actress Jennifer Jason Lee. Brad, Stacy’s brother, is watching them and when Cates later left the pool, she just removed her red swimwear right there and then.
#2. Wild Things (1998)
#3. Basic Instinct (1992)
Of course, no list of most paused movie moments will ever be complete without Basic Instinct. That epic leg crossing scene by Sharon Stone is definitely one of the most iconic in the history of films.
#4. Scanners (1981)
#5. Cabin in the Woods (2012)
#6. Wizard of Oz (1939)
#7. Teen Wolf (1985)
#8. The Little Mermaid (1989)
#9. Fight Club (1999)
#10. Total Recall (1990)
#11. Psycho (1960)
#12. Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
#13. The Lion King (1994)
Eagle-eyed movie fans caught the word “SEX” in this Disney movie as it forms from the dust. The makers, however, said it’s actually “SFX” which is a nod to the studio’s special effects department. If you ask us, we’ll say it really looks more like an E than an F.
#14. Boogie Nights (1997)
#15. Tron (1982)
#16. Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)
#17. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999)
It’s no secret that Star Wars creator George Lucas is a close friend of fellow filmmaker Steven Spielberg. So in Phanton Menace, Lucas decided to insert a little easter egg where E.T. and his family can be seen.
#18. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
#19. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
#20. Three Men and a Baby (1987)
#21. Jurassic World (2015)
#22. Iron Man (2008)
A prototype of Captain America’s shield can be seen in the background as Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) checks with her boss and love interest Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr). This simple easter egg later proved to be one of the jumping points for the Marvel cinematic universe.
#23. Man of Steel (2013)
#24. The Rescuers (1977)
#25. Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
#26. Signs (2002)
#27. Burn After Reading (2008)
#28. She’s The Man (2006)
Of course, who could forget that jaw-dropping moment when pretty Amanda Brynes, who was 19 years old when this movie was shot, lifted her shirt to prove to the boys that she in fact a girl. She did it during soccer practice!
So there you have it, film buffs – the 28 most paused moments in the history of movies. Think we missed something? Tell us about it in the comment section!
Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’ Blamed For 2 Cases Of Teen Suicide
Two teens from California committed suicide days after watching Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why.” Families angered for show’s renewal.
“It’s very graphic, especially the two-minute scene where she slits her wrists in a bathtub,” Peter Chui, a relative of a teenager who committed suicide last April blames his niece's demise to Netflix "13 Reasons Why." The show adapts Jay Asher’s New York Times bestseller portraying Hannah Baker, a troubled student who mailed her classmates a series of mysterious cassette tapes before killing herself.
According to reports, two teens in California committed suicide just days after watching the show. Bella Herndon, who was just three days away from her 16th birthday and Priscilla Chui, 15. The two girls were not connected to each other and died four days apart.

Ellen Degeneres Catches Studio Audience Member Stealing And Things Got Really Awkward
“Let that be a lesson to you,” Ellen remarked.
Perhaps what’s worse than stealing is stealing something that’s supposedly for free in the first place – and then getting caught in the act because the place actually has a hidden camera. This is exactly what happened in Ellen Degeneres’ show recently and the host made sure that the offending person learned her lesson.
As it turns out, the show put up a table of Ellen merchandise with a sign that fans can each get one item for free. Most of the fans obeyed the simple rule (one wanted an Ellen cap so much but put it back because she already took something else) but two women decided to take more than they deserved.
Eventually, Ellen addressed the matter – on air!...
