Star Trek Meets Monty Python


Who knew the crew of the Enterprise were such talented comedians? LOL, this is great. Someone edited classic Star Trek footage to recreate the Camelot scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I think it syncs up beautifully.

Here’s the original scene to compare. So funny!

First Look at Thor


Here’s the first publicity photo of Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth. You may remember him as Captain Kirk’s dad in the recent Star Trek movie.

Not bad at all! It’s a bit depressing that we have to wait over a year for this movie, which is scheduled for a May 6, 2011 release.

Disguise Your Eyes at the Zoo


Did you know that gorillas get mad when you make eye contact with them? The next time you go to the zoo, you would be wise to wear these special glasses.

A zoo in the Netherlands is actually giving these glasses to visitors so they don’t get attacked by gorillas! Wow, really? I’d love to see a whole crowd of people wearing these, it would be so surreal (and more than a little creepy).

The Rotterdam Zoo is giving away cardboard glasses that make it appear that you’re looking off to one side; these are gorilla-viewing glasses, meant to avoid incidents in which gorillas attack visitors for making eye contact with them. The glasses’ introduction follows an attack on a woman by an escaped gorilla…

Trailer for Jonah Hex

I’m so impressed with this trailer for Jonah Hex! This looks like such a great supernatural Western action movie.

I’ll confess, I haven’t read any Jonah Hex comics and I don’t know a whole lot about this character. But I will certainly be at the theater on the day this comes out.

Jonah Hex stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox, and arrives in theaters on on June 18, 2010.

Henry Hoover Costume


Heh, this is a clever costume idea, though it is fairly creepy looking. It’s Henry Hoover, the walking vacuum! Funny stuff, though I find his eyes somewhat disturbing.

Here’s a helpful commercial, in case you have no idea what a Henry Hoover is, exactly. My, what a big nose hole he has. Someone stick a hose in it!
