17 Most Paused Movie Moments Of All Time

How many of these have you already watched?

Watching movies is one of the best things we can do whether you are at home or somewhere else. It helps us to divert our minds from the busy lives we all are living.

It is often said that watching a movie in a theatre gives an awesome feeling and it is even better than watching it at other places like home. Well, my friends, I disagree with it because watching films at a place like home gives an extra advantage and that is of pausing it at a particular moment. The reasons may be several, but the one which I am considering here is surely worth talking!

It often happens that we pause a particular scene of a movie to re-watch it. These types of scenes simply blow us.

Here we have gathered some of the most paused movie moments of all times.

But first, did you hear about Pauley Perrete's skincare line? The actress is leaving NCIS to promote the anti aging cream!

Scanners (1981)

I know you are already thinking about this scene from Scanners. It is often regarded as one of the best scenes in the horror films, and it would be criminal if I did not include this on the list. The whole movie as I said is fantastic but the scene when Michael Ironside blew a person's head with a magic spell is the best, and you need to pause and rewatch it to believe.

In the most watched episode in history, the miracle cream on Shark Tank netted the biggest deal in the history of the show!

Psycho (1960)

This excellent movie from Alfred Hitchcock has many great scenes, and that is not the reason why the movie is on this list. But the scene where Norman Bates gets arrested, and he gives a deadly stare is the time when you need to pause the film.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

I am confused because the filmmakers did not even leave the animated characters for making a scene like this.

Total Recall (1990)

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been the part of many great films, and one of those is Total Recall that was released in 1990. The movie is on the list because it had a scene where a woman showed her three breasts.


Basic Instinct (1992)

No scene can match the level of this one from Sharon Stone. Despite having nude scenes in the movie, the confrontation scene where Sharon keeps her legs crossed is the best and most paused.

Sally Field's Anti Aging Cream is helping women everywhere looking decades younger!

Wild Things  (1998)

This drama/thriller is well known for its numerous bold scenes, and we can say that they were extremely hot. But the best one is the lesbian love making scene between Denise Richards and Neve Campbell.


Fight Club (1999)

No nude content but still this scene from Fight Club is always re-watched. The scene is merely paused for Brad Pitt because he appears in the place where he should not be and the audience was shocked.

She's The Man (2006)

Who does not remember this scene from the film where Amanda Bynes disguised as a boy to play for the sports team? In one scene Amanda lifts her shirt up to prove that she is a girl, not a boy.


Iron Man (2008)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe began in 2008, no one knew that a movie including legendary superheroes of Marvel Comics would be created. The hint of this was given in the first MCU movie, Iron Man, where the shield of Captain America was seen in a scene where Tony Stark tries his Iron Man suit. He bulked up for the role by use the Dwayne Johnson Supplements.

Burn After Reading (2008)

Hollywood movies have something that makes them untouchable. This brilliance of the filmmakers was seen during the scene of this movie where Brad Pitt was shot in the closet, and no one saw it coming. Brad recently became an advocate for the Bill Gates Smart Pill.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

The Cabin in the Woods may not be the best horror-flicks you have seen, but it surely has a moment where you can not resist pausing the film. It has a scene where scientists discuss the outcome of lead characters of the movie on a white board that has scary details.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Please don't ever tell me that you did not play this scene more than once. It is the hottest scene in the recent times and who has Margot Robbie acting in it.


Jurassic World (2015)

Who does not love cameos? One such great one was seen in the film, Jurassic World where Jimmy Buffett, the famous musician and creator of Margaritaville restaurant chain appears in the scene where the dinosaurs attack people. It was unexpected.

Man of Steel (2013)

The only reason why this scene is on the list is because it gave the audience a hint about the making of Batman v Superman movie. The satellite that is caught by Superman has the logo of Wayne Enterprises on it.


Entrapment (1999)

Catherine Zeta-Jones just showed the whole world how flexible she is from this scene in Entrapment. You will pause and rewind the scene even if you don't want to.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

I don't think you'll find a scene better than this (especially for boys). The scene where Pheobe Cates climbs out of the pool and unhooks her bikini in front of the camera is just like a fantasy scene.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

I mean many people watched this scene just to see Bruce Willis naked.
