Freaky Friday Finds: Crazy Animal Eyes, Batman Imposters, 'Die Hard' Dr. Seuss, Kirk Cameron's Sad Birthday and More

Oct 14, 2011

It's Friday, which means it's time to let our hair down at headquarters and break out all the weird, freaky stuff we've been hiding from our parents so they don't think we've gone completely mad. Just don't tell anyone you got this from us ...

While not entirely movie related, these intense close-up shots of animal eyes (from photographer Suren Manvelan) are freaky and awesome, and totally worth staring at for a half hour. More here.


And speaking of eyes, here's a fun little Hollywood eyebrow makeup tutorial from 1938 ...

From 1938 to 1984 (and 1990), here's a mash-up of The Karate Kid and the rapper-turned-actor duo, Kid N' Play ...

Sticking with the year 1984 for a moment, here's what the Tom Hanks comedy Splash would look like as a political thriller

Those who think 1985 was, like, totally better than 1984 because it featured the debut of Growing Pains might like this image of Kirk Cameron celebrating his birthday, even though it's the saddest thing spreading across these interwebs today. Poor Kirk, but at least he's putting Subway's five-dollar footlongs special to good use. [via Buzzfeed]

Aww, maybe Kirk Cameron needs a little more of this in his life. Courtesy of New York Comic-Con comes the Best. Cosplayer. Ever. (p.s. we shouldn't have to explain this one)  [via Buzzfeed]

Speaking of things that belong squarely in the 1990s, Joel Schumacher recently called Val Kilmer the best of all the Batmans, telling IFC, “I thought he looked great in the costume, and I thought he brought a depth to the role. I thought the relationship between Val and Nicole Kidman was very sexy.”

Mmmm, ok then. But of course we're not done with Batman yet. Here's a pretty sweet preview of some sort of animated series called Gotham City Imposters, featuring citizens of Gotham who dress up as their favorite hero and villains.

And while it's easy to dress up as your favorite character, it's not as easy to sound like them. I guess that's why the book How to Speak Zombie was created. And I guess it teaches you how to speak zombie?

Alright, well if you won't read that book, how about this one -- based on the recently-announced title of the next Die Hard sequel [via Slashfilm] ...

Die Hard making you feel nostalgic? Fine, we'll end with two Star Wars-related videos. First we have Christopher Nolan talking about wanting to be Han Solo, and, finally, a spoof music video called Moves Like Jabba. You're welcome. Happy Friday!
