You can be my wingman any time

Movie-mocking mainstays Owen Egerton and John Erler have entered the Rewind Kindly competition with an old favorite: Top Gun. It’s familiar territory for the two, who (with Jerm Pollet) have parodied the film before live audiences a dozen times as The Sinus Show. And – aww! – this is the first movie-mocking Owen and John have done since Sinus split more than a year ago.

But enough about them. This entry is unusually brimming with local talent.

Les McGehee (radar operator) is author of Les McGehee Plays Well With Others, an instructional book and memoir about improv. Scott Chester (Ice Man) and director Ben Bartley appear with Owen and Les in Zach Scott Theater’s Plays Well with Others live show.

Mac Blake (Goose) draws Bill and Erik, which is now syndicated in That Other Paper.

Rewind Kindly: Top Gun

Those are the best low-budget special effects I’ve ever seen.

About Rewind Kindly

From my earlier post:

Inspired by the upcoming release of Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind, Rewind Kindly challenges teams to “complete an up-to-five-minute, homemade, low-budget remake of a popular Hollywood film” to be screened at the Alamo Drafthouse…

Screenings begin tonight at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar and end Wednesday, February 20. A best-of screening and awards show will be held at the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz on Thursday, February 21, immediately before the opening screening of Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind.

speaking of me (mac blake) I was also part of a group that made a 5 minute version of Die Hard for the same competition. It also features Master Pancake’s John Erler and Joe Parsons as well as radio personality and Master Pancake contributor David Jara from KOOP’s Mascot Wedding show
