25 Movie Scenes That You Have Definitely Paused To Take A Closer Look

Let's be honest here. Everyone pauses movies. And it's not just because you want to go to the bathroom. There's just something on the screen that you just really don't wanna miss.
Have you ever seen a movie in the movie theatre and you caught a glimpse of something? Perhaps a list full of easter eggs and pop culture references, or Sharon Stone crossing her legs, or maybe a flash of something that was just enough to catch your attention but quick enough for you to doubt what you've seen? And then, oh boy, you just can't wait for the movie to hit the Bluray market and/or streaming so you can pause and take a closer look at that scene?
Well here's a list of some of the movie scenes that you have definitely paused!

#1 Basic Instinct

One of Sharon Stone's most well-known roles. Even those who haven't seen the film are aware of her involvement. Or, more precisely, they are aware of one scene. And that scene is when she uncrosses her legs during an interrogation by cops. For a split second, you can see that she isn't wearing panties beneath her short dress.

#2 Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice

There's a memorable scene in Batman v. Superman where the moody Bruce Wayne takes a shower. And you can see Ben Affleck's butt during that scene. It's well worth pausing for a moment to take in the sights.

#3 Boogie Nights

Boogie Nights focuses on Mark Wahlberg's character, Eddie Adams, a porn star. And you can see his penis several times throughout the movie. It's a prosthetic, but that doesn't make it any less frightening or deserving of a screen pause.

#4 The Cabin In The Woods

A group of college students visits the titular cabin in The Cabin in the Woods. As it turned out, anything they touched in the cabin will summon a beast to murder them. While they are eventually attacked by a zombie family, there is a whiteboard with all the different creatures that may have attacked instead. A dragon bat, merman, seductive witch, Kevin, and an angry molesting tree were among the most bizarre alternatives.

#5 Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallow: Part 1

Even aficionados of the book were taken aback by this one. A kiss was in order between the phony Harry and Hermione. People were taken aback as the couple appeared naked as they kissed passionately.

#6 Fight Club

Spoiler warning! There are several fast flashes throughout the film that cause people to try to pause it. Tyler Durden, a projection of the narrator's imagination, appears during such flashes.

#7 Far And Away

This is yet another scenario with male nudity. A young Tom Cruise can be seen napping on a bed at this point in Far and Away. In addition, he is entirely naked, with only a bowl concealing his privates.

#8 Forrest Gump

People are presumably familiar with this scene because it is in such a well-known film. Specifically, the moment in which Jenny is playing guitar in public while naked to her buttocks.

#9 Love And Other Drugs

Another film with several pausable moments is Love and Other Drugs. There are plenty of naked Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal scenes to keep any viewer entertained. In this scenario, halting the film.

#10 Iron Man

In the original Iron Man film, this is a blink and you'll miss the moment. As it turns out, a damaged version of Captain America's shield may be seen. However, in the sequel, they make this gag much more evident.

#11 Passion Play

In Passion Play, Mega Fox plays a heavenly entity. The film reminds viewers of why the general public finds her so appealing. After all, she spends a significant amount of the film topless.

#12 Peter Pan

Oh, the animators' blunder here. Peter Pan is a mainly innocent film, but there was one blunder with how Peter's shadow was created in this moment. Isn't it a little out of place here?

#13 Psycho

People frequently pause this moment at the end of Psycho due to the image that they believe is overlaid over Norman Bates' face at the end of the film. As Bates smiles, it appears that a skull is forming over his face. But no one has ever figured it out for sure.

#14 She’s The Man

In her earlier years as an actor, Amanda Bynes participated in a number of more filthy films. She's the Man was one of such films. And there's a scene in that movie where she lowers her shirt to show off an athlete.

#15 Teen Wolf

There is a scene near the end of the film Teen Wolf in which everyone is celebrating the end of a basketball game. And this is when you may spot a certain individual in the bleachers. Someone, it turns out, left their fly undone.

#16 The Lion King

For a long time, this was dismissed as a silly theory, yet it's actually true, at least in certain ways. Simba's body begins to evaporate after seeing his father, Mufasa, in the sky. In addition, the stars briefly read "SEX." The original intention was for it to say "SFX," which it does for the majority of the time it's displayed. There is a brief moment when the "F" appears to be a "E."

#17 Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have been friends for many years, so it's no surprise that they've hidden easter eggs in one other's works. Some members of ET's species can be seen in the Galactic Senate in The Phantom Menace.

#18 The Rescuers

This is one of the most "blink and you'll miss it" moments in cinema history. You see a quick glimpse of an actual photo in one of the windows as the titular Rescuers fly through the city. The photograph depicts a naked woman. The shot was later removed from following re-releases. The animators simply sneaked it in because it was considerably more difficult to notice when the film was filmed.

#19 Three Men And A Baby

You don't have to be familiar with the film to find this section surprising. That individual in the background, it turns out, was not supposed to be in this scenario. And it isn't precisely acknowledged. Tom Selleck is actually a cardboard cutout. There was nothing creepy about this, yet it sparked rumors of a ghost boy on set.

#20 Total Recall

Total Recall has one element in common, whether it's the original 1990 version or the 2012 remake. And there's a three-breasted woman in the film.

#21 Tron

Tron was a fascinating and seminal science fiction picture of its day. There were likely to be some easter eggs in the picture because it was based on computers and video games. And one of them is a Pac-Man game visible on a map in the film.

#22 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Steve Rogers is said to be preparing a list of things to catch up on at the start of the second Captain America film. He had, after all, been frozen for decades. You can see that list when he's putting down a recommendation from Sam Wilson. You may view all of the key media and historical landmarks he's documented. The list is also different in each country.

#23 Wizard Of Oz

This one is based on a theory rather than actual facts. People halt to catch a sight of something as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man stroll along the Yellow Brick Road. People thought the black area near the back of the set was a Munchkin who had hung themselves.

#24 The Wolf Of Wall Street

There are numerous opportunities to pause and reflect in The Wolf of Wall Street. And many of them center on Margot Robbie. This film was instrumental in propelling her to popularity. It just so happened that she had to show off her naked body multiple times throughout the movie.

#25 Zootopia

When Judy Hops travels to the city of the same name in Zootopia, she listens to the film's theme song on her iPod. Several song parodies of various Disney films are briefly mentioned.
