Instant Replay

Filmmaking Frenzy plays fast and loose with your Hollywood favorites

Can't wait for Michel Gondry's new Jack Black-Mos Def comedy Be Kind Rewind? Well, the Alamo Drafthouse is here to whet your appetite. Their new-ish competition arm, Filmmaking Frenzy, is hosting the Rewind Kindly competition, in which any schmo with a camera can remake his or her favorite films, DIY-style. Submissions are up online now for your viewing and voting pleasure. You'll have to register first, but what's a few seconds filling out online forms when you can waste a whole work day watching the likes of Bambi retold in four minutes of fart jokes and awkward birthing scenes?

(Thanks to the Chronicle's Mike B. for alerting us -- you can check out his hi-larious T2 redo here.)
