Do you enjoy watching movies at home or in the theatre? While both provide a different kind of experience, For me, it’s always at home because you can enjoy the movie by seeing your favorite scenes again and again. Cinemas don’t allow us to do this kind of things.
1. Psycho (1960)
In the classic horror film, Alfred Hitchcock gives us plenty of pause-able moments, but one in particular sticks out. When Norman Bates had a human skull on his head for just a second.
2. Scanners (1981)
David Cronenberg started off his legendary decade with this mystery horror film surrounding psychic powers. At one very infamous moment, a young Michael Ironside makes a man’s head explode with his powers. It happens so quickly and gruesomely that people had to watch again.
3. Total Recall (1990)
Arnold Schwarzenegger gave us many moments of violence and destruction through the years, but it’s a glimpse at a three-breasted woman that made viewers stop in awe.
4. Wild Things (1998)
There’s only one thing that everyone remembers about Denise Richards Wild Things, and it’s that the movie was full of hot scenes between Denise Richards and Neve Campbell.
5. Fight Club (1999)
Fight Club, directed by David Fincher based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, is filled with pause-worthy moments. Some obvious and some not so much, like this one where Brad Pitt flashes in a hospital.
6. She’s The Man (2006)
When a 19-year old Amanda Bynes lifts her shirt to show the boys that she is, in fact, a girl, teenagers across the country were smashing their pause button to find out if they could see anything.
You can’t, by the way.
7. Iron Man (2008)
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 super subtle but very exciting. And it makes sense as we later found out Tony’s father Howard helped create Cap.
8. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Margot Robbie had a turn as the sex icon of a generation in the Martin Scorsese film. She has a handful of heart-stopping moments, including showing off to the mansion security team.
9. Man Of Steel (2013)
There was a scene when the satellite that Supes grabs while fighting in outer space has a Wayne Enterprises logo on it.
10. Jurrasic Park
