Doctor Strange (2016)
Don't get us wrong, "Doctor Strange" has many pause-worthy moments, but the scene towards the end of the film, when Doctor Strange dies several times, has definitely become a fan favorite. Doctor Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto to manipulate time and save the world. Doctor Strange enthusiasts believe that the Eye of Agamotto will have an important role in future installments, which is why so many chose to pause on its effects. Honestly, we can't blame them!
Fact. The film achieves its greatest triumphs through its breathtaking special effects.

Although these elements may appear disparate at first glance, they harmoniously blend together to create a stunning visual tapestry that leaves a lasting impact on the audience.
Star Wars - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Yet another "Star Wars" film on our list. A major part of the fun of watching this 1983 film is pausing scenes to see how its visual and special effects have held up over the years. You may be surprised to discover that they've held up pretty well. Of all the pause-worthy scenes, the most paused moment in the film happens when Luke Skywalker backs away from killing his father, and the Emperor strikes Vader with a bolt of lightning.
Vader attacks, and as he stumbles back, the remaining bolts of lightning flow over him, and for a split second, audiences could see his skeleton illuminated under his armor.
The Greasy Strangler (2016)

The Brothers Grimsby (2016)
In the uproarious comedy "The Brothers Grimsby," there exists a scene that induces a reflexive reach for the remote control as viewers witness a streaker sprinting across a football field. However, the excitement may be tempered by a surprising revelation. Contrary to appearances, Rebel Wilson was not herself engaging in the daring escapade. Sacha Baron Cohen, the film's star and writer, attempted to coax Wilson into participating, only to encounter her reluctance.
Thus, a clever solution was found in the form of a blonde body double—a talented dancer hailing from South Africa—who seamlessly stepped into the role and delivered a moment that both bewildered and delighted audiences. This anecdote exemplifies the film's comedic spirit, highlighting the creative lengths undertaken to bring laughter to the screen.
