Have you ever had one of those experiences when you’re watching a movie and it all of a sudden turns incredibly awkward? And not in that cute, intended awkwardness, but more in the cringe worthy and why-is-this-even-happening way? It’s guaranteed, so here is a list of some of the most awkward scenes to grace the big screen.

‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ – The Untied Shoelace

Ugh. Guys. This scene.

There is so much sexual innuendo in this scene that even Colin Creevey, who probably got no action in his entire life, would question what is going on here.

What on earth was David Yates thinking when he filmed this scene? Did he forget that Daniel Radcliffe is short and so didn’t realise that Bonnie’s head would be in the perfect position for something that would definitely not classify it as a PG-13 movie?

It’s a real shame, because Ginny is one of my favourite characters, but pretty much every scene between Bonnie and Daniel is so awkward that I want to fast forward the movie every time she’s on screen. Their kiss in the 6th and 7th film is so passionate less and uncomfortable you would think she had been imperio-ed.

‘Twilight’ – Spider Monkey

Oh gosh. It was so hard to narrow it down to just one, but after watching way too many scenes of Twilight on YouTube, I knew it had to be this one.

What you have to understand is that the entire film of Twilight is composed of really long uneasy and embarrassing scenes, so you think you would get used to constantly wincing at whatever sappy lines they throw at each other, but I vividly remember when Edward said, “You better hold on tight, spidermonkey” and thinking. No. Nope. Too much.

It’s not even cute! Yes, please, compare me to the most hated insect on the planet, and in addition, combine it with a monkey, who are known to fling their own feces. It’s adorable.

‘Spiderman’ – Emo Peter Parker Dance

A lot of people like to pretend that Spiderman 3 never happened, and from watching this scene, it’s understandable why. I don’t know whether to laugh hysterically, or cover my eyes until it’s safe to look again.

I’m sorry, but Toby Maguire just doesn’t pull off the whole ‘confident and sexy’ guy. He’s cute, and that’s great, you can do a lot with that, but using dance moves that your mum probably taught you just aren’t going to get the ladies like she promised. Times have changed.

How Gwen Stacey even fell for him is beyond me. Look at those emo bangs; you could cause an eco disaster from that amount of grease.

Mary Jane’s face throughout this whole disaster of a dance routine though is perfect and speaks for the audience. “WTF is going on?!”

‘Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones’ – Anakin and Padme rolling in the meadow

The prequels have always taken quite a beating from hard-core fans about how bad they are in comparison to the originals. However, I grew up with the prequels, and I loved them as a kid! My friends and I use to always play Star Wars during lunch, and I was of course Padme, mainly because she’s the only female character, but I also thought she was pretty cool in The Phantom Menace.

My belief as to why so many fans hated the prequels is because the movies sort of turned into this epic romance, which is not what attracted the original fans to the series.

And I get it; some of the scenes between Anakin and Padme are truly puke worthy. For instance, the meadow scene. It’s like a scene out of The Sound of Music; they’re frolicking around amongst daisies and butterflies, having the time of their life. The bit where they roll over each other in the grass is so staged and cheesy that I’m lucky I’m not lactose intolerant, or else I would be breaking out into crazy hives. This scene is too much. The last and only time I would have done this in real life is in P.E, when we had to do a gymnastics routine.

‘Titanic’ – “I’m Flying”

I’m sorry. I can’t. This scene, it makes me cringe every time. I know it’s the most iconic and romantic scene of the past decade, but Leonardo’s hush, the whispered talking, the “I’m flying!” line and the music. Oh god, the music. I think it’s what pushes me over the edge. It’s excessive and I can’t handle it. If I was on the ship watching, I would probably throw myself overboard.

What are some of the scenes you find too awkward to watch?

Behind-the-scenes looks at next year’s live-action Beauty and the Beast continue to leak off the animated film’s 25th Anniversary Edition, arriving in September.

Today we have four new previews. This one’s a particular doozy because we get to see a first look (sort of) at Emma Watson as Belle, who has yet to be unveiled in full. The dress she’s wearing in this concept art may be best remembered from the animated movie for its appearance in the scenes surrounding the song “Belle”:

Three pieces of concept art appear to have been drawn up for the costume department. We’re also getting a look at Gaston (Luke Evans) and Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson):

Finally, we have a shot of Luke Evans and a woman rehearsing a dance scene that appears to take place on top of a table. In the background you can see additional concept art depicting Mrs. Potts (in kettle form), Chip, and a piano (who might be played by Stanley Tucci and named Cadenza):

Last week we got to see several other first looks from this same behind-the-scenes featurette, including Dan Stevens as the Beast (human form), Cogsworth, and Lumière.

At this rate, the whole behind-the-scenes look may be spoiled by the time the Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition is released to the world on September 20.

The live-action Beauty and the Beast arrives this March and is directed by Bill Condon.

90 minutes into an embarrassing year for the MTV VMAs, a bright light appeared: Beyoncé.

Beyoncé’s 2016 MTV VMA performance may go down as one of the best in the award show’s history. The Lemonade singer flawlessly moved through “Pray You Catch Me,” “Hold Up,” “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Yourself” (featuring a Cruella de Vil-like wardrobe), and “Formation,” each with their own themes and stunning visuals. (That fire! That broken camera! The feminism!)

Watch Beyoncé’s full 2016 MTV VMA performance below:

The performance was a bit of a surprise. Though MTV hinted that she’d be showing up, no one expected a 15-minute performance.

The 2016 MTV VMAs were disappointing to say the least. The first two award winners — the only two awards presented in the first 2 hours of the show — weren’t present to receive them (Drake was apparently stuck in traffic, according to P Diddy).

And peppered throughout the performances were Key and Peele, who were playing commentators who just mocked millennials and their lingo. Bizarre, when you realize that they’re just making fun of the show’s core audience for hours.

Then Britney Spears had to follow Beyoncé with a performance of “Make Me” with G-Eazy. Poor Britney! No one should have to follow a Beyoncé performance like the one above.

It’s funny how Beyoncé feels compelled to perform at the garbage that are the MTV VMAs. They don’t deserve her. There are only two legitimate reasons why she could be interested in doing this: To inspire, and to promote the Formation World Tour.

Marvel reveals what Thor was really up to during ‘Civil War’ in amazing new video

"And who's this purple weirdo?"

3:38 pm EDT, August 28, 2016

Have you found yourself curious about just where Thor ended up whilst his team mates were duking it out during Captain America: Civil War? Well, wonder no longer, as Marvel has finally revealed the truth.

We’ve all mulled the question over in our heads, since the line-up for Civil War was revealed. Where were Thor and Bruce Banner hiding out whilst the Sokovia Accords were tearing their team apart?

The answer was revealed in a mockumentary clip, directed by Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi, which debuted during San Diego Comic-Con this past summer — where it received an enthusiastic response. But, for those fans left at home, and without a coveted seat in Hall H, the answer still remained painfully out of reach.

Until now.

Released in anticipation of the Civil War DVD and Blu-ray release, this short is now available to the masses, and we couldn’t happier — not least because it’s just as hilarious as promised.

That’s right. As Tony and Steve were duking it out, Thor was Down Under, chilling with his new buddy Darryl and engaging in a little community service.

It’s definitely worth checking out for yourself, and we won’t spoil any of the more hilarious touches — especially some of Thor’s… artistic interpretations of certain Avengers team members. We’re definitely not going to be able to look at Nick Fury in the same way, ever again.

(Also, if you’ve been having difficulty tracking the Infinity Stones, Thor has the perfect solution for you!)

Rest assured that, if this mockumentary is anything to go by, Thor: Ragnarok is in very capable hands. We’re certainly looking forward to a Rainbow road bridge-tripping adventure across the universe with Thor and Hulk.

Especially if it allows Chris Hemsworth to show off more of his comedy chops, as seen in the above clip.

Captain America: Civil War is released in Digital HD on September 2, and on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13. Thor: Ragnarok will be heading to theaters on November 3, 2017.

Which ‘team’ are you on now? Team Cap, Team Iron Man, or… Team Thor?
