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!
