Sharp Stanley Kubrick fans know that the director of “Passengers” dropped some Kubrick-Esque easter eggs. The easter eggs referred to none other than “The Shining.” Morten Tyldum is a big Kubrick fan and wanted to honor the late director through its set design.
For starters, the robot bartender bears a remarkable resemblance to the bartender from “The Shining.” Then, the ship’s carpet is comparable to the carpet in the Overlook Hotel.
The Favourite (2018)
"The Favourite," tells the story of Queen Anne and her two most loyal supporters, Lady Sarah and her cousin Abigail. Interestingly enough, the film has made our list with one scene in particular. The scene that caused viewers to pause involved Queen Anne explaining to Sarah why she favors Abigail so much.
Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne, delivers her reasoning in such a deadpan manner that it gives the scene all the more reason to pause and soak in what just happened.
Black Panther (2018)
The Academy Award-winning film that took audiences by storm was bound to have at least one pause-worthy moment. The scene in which T'Challa has to battle Killmonger to keep control of Wakanda is intense, to say the least. One worth pausing for.
What makes the scene even more incredible is the moment when Killmonger wins and throws T'Challa over the waterfall, overtaking the Wakanda throne. No one, and we mean no one, saw that coming.
The Crying Game (1992)
"The Crying Game" was a huge success, both commercially and critically. The thriller set in Northern Ireland was full of excellent performances, but there was one that stood out.
Nightclub singer Dil, played by Jaye Davidson, is responsible for the scene in which jaws drop and pause buttons were pressed. In a key scene, Dil reveals she's transgender, and viewers worldwide responded with a collective double-take.
Disney loves adding easter eggs that appeal to the parents watching with their children; the infamous "Frozen" was no exception. In the scene with Anna and Hans, there's a moment when they're discussing sandwiches...
Well, the scene is a play-by-play of a scene in the critically acclaimed (adult) television show "Arrested Development."
