    One great thing about dvds is the perfect freeze frame you get, have any of you ever gone thru a portion of the movie frame-by-frame or just froze the picture to have a good look at something interesting?
    Obvious ones being subliminial images in The Exorcist and Fight Club.
    Some of the deaths in The Omen and Final Destination looked interesting frame by frame.
    Gladiator had some gory beheadings for freeze frame fans.
    Checking Showgirls (after putting el vampira to bed) took some time until my dvd player spat it out in disgust.[​IMG]
    Any more recommendations for freeze frame perusement?

    I like freeze-framing to see naked chicks. I wouldn't call it a good movie, but I freeze-framed "Dancing at the Blue Iguana" in a few spots to take a better look at Jennifer Tilly. [​IMG]

    There are some good freeze-frame moments in The Hot Spot thanks to Jennifer Connelly!

    I also like to freeze-frame parts of Wallace & Gromit to check out all the little details.

    This is something that I have yet to do. You would think that with the clear still picture I would do it more often. [​IMG]

    There is a scene in Mad Max where I could've sworn a cable was visible pulling a guy off of a motorcycle. Freeze frame rendered it...inconclusive.
    I also freeze framed a certain person getting shot in the head in Enemy at the Gates. I won't say who, as it might just ruin the movie. [​IMG]
    I also could have sworn I saw Nicole Kidman's boobie in Moulin Rouge. Freeze frame proved...inconclusive. [​IMG]

    I have the early edition LD of Roger Rabbit. When Jessica goes flying out of the car ... she shows she is not some sexless Barbie Doll.

    People enjoy that one...guess it was edited out in later versions

    I like to still-frame any scene that shows a newspaper headline relating to the movie- a lot of times they will not bother to actually write an article for it; if you are able to read the text it will be a totally unrelated article they just pasted in. At the end of "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" several newspapers and magazine covers are shown, which prove to be totally bogus if you read the actual text.

    I heard London had some nice bootlegs of LOTR lying around... Maybe you could get hold of a VCD copy, and freeze frame the Balrog for me? [​IMG]

    If you own the fast and the furious. Use freeze frame in the last scene to see Vin Diesels stunt guy wearing a helmet in the truck roll scene... Great movie.

    Talking of Lord of the Rings, when the dvd comes out it'll be interesting to look out for that truck supposedly moving in the background during one of the battles, well I saw it twice and didnt see any vehicles or airplanes or wristwatches, one of our crappy snoozepapers reported this.[​IMG]
    True Lies, freeze frame the bit where Arnie is riding a horse and chasing the baddie on the motorbike, it so clearly isn't Arnie I nearly kicked my telly in.[​IMG]
    In the dvd of T2, the truck tips over at the end and if you put it in slo-mo you can clearly see the rope pulling the truck along, tsk tsk.:b

    Wonder why no-one mentioned Basic Instinct as yet. There's a scene that's rather quickly over, simply begging to be frozen (no, not with an ice-pick) ... oh, well, can't remember, but it uhm, crossed my, uhm mind.

    Cees, don't worry, that was the first thing I freeze-framed, printed, blown up to poster size and framed on my wall.[​IMG]

    Try stunts. You can often see how they are done-especially car stunts and people being blown into the air.
