10 Most-Paused Movie Moments Of The Day (NSFW)

From Slashfilm and Elliott Mason.


 "A subscription based British movie site called LOVEFiLM (basically a European version of Netflix) took votes from their 1.6 million subscribers and came up with the top ten scenes in movies that people pause."

PAC-MAN CAMEO – Tron (1982)



The year is 1982. Home video games are just becoming super popular and you see a movie as visually stunning as Tron. Then, in a blink, it seems like there’s one of your favorite characters on the screen. Did it actually happen? In the case of Tron, it did and the fact that it happened so long ago was probably a shock to audiences not used to this kind of thing.


CAPTAIN AMERICA'S SHIELD – Iron Man 2 (2010)



One of the first of the many Easter Eggs linking the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jon Favreau’s inclusion of Captain America’s shield in Iron Man 2 was subtle but makes sense, as we later found out Tony’s father Howard helped create Captain A.


TYLER DURDEN FLASH FRAMES – Fight Club (1999)



Fight Club, directed by David Fincher and based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, is filled with pause-worthy moments, including several where the image of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) flashes for milliseconds, hinting at the film's twist ending.


STORMTROOPER KLUTZ – Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)



Star Wars fans know this clip well. George Lucas famously left in this gaffe of a Stormtrooper hitting his head on the Death Star and while you don’t notice it the first see the movie, once you do notice it, it’s all you ever see.


JAMIE LEE'S FUNBAGS – Trading Places (1983)



Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis was always known for being sexy but it wasn’t until 1983′s Trading Places that audiences saw her topless.

  1. They always leave out my favorite -- Liam Neeson as "Rob Roy" walking out of the loch, nekkid. I think I burned my DVD I paused it so many times. :)

  8. I worked at a second-run movie theatre at the time BASIC INSTINCT came out. The film print that we received from the first-run house had a splice right at the moment in question -- evidently the projectionist before us decided to remove a frame or two for his own (or his friends') enjoyment.
