C2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, May 17, 2012 Entertainrnen00 The "Best Woman Won" Miraculously, 64 year old Greg Smith, AKATARZAN, made a mark for tfirnself by being "the last man stand- ing". He made a noble effort to "&apos;put himself' in the mix, but it didn't fly with the women. Tarzan creates a true conundrum. On the one hand, he's,humble and wise. Except when he's totally out in left field with Kat's panties on his head and her tank top stretched into oblivion so he could wear it to Tribal. The 'panties' on his head made our little Boo Hoo Bow Head (Kat) cry. I would think she'd be more inclined to be really, really, REALLY pissed at the dirty old man! Oh well, there'll be no car shocks for the good doctor!!! Chelsea couldn't be hap- pier to have Tarzan back at Loser's Camp. "Tarzan needs to get the hell off our island before he drives me totally crazy!" I think I could have endured his antics a lot better than watching him parade around in those bikini skivvies. Gross! This episode was the last chance the tribe had to blindside Kim. If Alicia and Sabrina would have con- vinced Tarzan and Christine to join them in a surprise vote for Kim, this game would have turned upside down. Alas, Kim didn't have immunity. Kim and Chelsea totally have each other's back. If Kim and Chelsea end up in the final three together, Chelsea has a good chance of beating Kim. Ya' gotta' wonder at what point the "I Love you" and "if I have to send Chelsea home, it'll be my worst night here" pales in the face of one million dollars! It's true friendships are made on this game, but at the end of the day, and year down the road, that friendship is teeny weeny in the face of what a million dollars can do to change one's life. I can almost hear the clink, clink, clink of cham- pagne glasses all over the world! Finally, FINALLY a women's alliance held strong to the very end. There's hope, redemption, and the amazing power of one woman to hold a FOCUS come hell or high water! Kim completely stopped the world for me in those final moments of win- ning yet another immunity challenge. Numerous times Kim would come from behind to win, again and again. She is now the most talented woman to ever play this game. Kim packaged up all the ingredients of success: 1) She cultivated high quality relationships with everyone. 2) She avoided pitching fits and falling in them. 3) She held her focus on the end game from the very begin- ning of the game. 4) She master-minded strategy with calm resolve. She was blistering, blindly smart with every move she made. 5) She made the really big and risky moves with courage. 6) She poured on the athleticism. 7) She refused to settle for less, and was smart enough to keep her emotions tucked safely in a strait jacket. 8) She was savvy enough to pull Miss Big MouthPuerto Rico in close and keep her there. 9) She challenged herself to make good deci- sions and then made them. 10) She kicked everyone's ass without a single boast- ful slur. She did nothing to make her have to crawl through a swamp of shame like Colton and Alicia. Kim is a Number Ten Woman, with skill, technique, kind- ness, and FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS! I'm betting her ex- husband is now wishing he could have been a wind at her back! Let's see, was that one million dollars, plus another $100,000?! For the very first time in Survivor history, my favor- ite top three landed in the top three. Sabrina is a masterful, beautiful model of eloquent speech and kindness. She does, however, need to pick up the pace on pitching in around camp. Chelsea was a curie and a strong alliance for Kim. I loved that Kim chose to take the top strongest players with her to the end. She didn't cop out by screw- ing the good players so she could land at the end with slugs. She took risks all the way to the end, while proving that great leaders have great people with them. In every sense of the word, Kim dominated this game and has put herself as the front runner woman in Survivor. Hats off to Kim and all for a Great Season! Funnies continues comedy show Funnies Comedy Club continues their series of monthly stand-up comedy shows Saturday, May 19, with Tony Stone and special guest Spencer Hicks. Show times will be 8:30 and 10:30pm and will be hosted by Funnies co- founder Rob Neville. Stone has spent over 20 years performing in clubs, colleges and corporate gigs all over the country. He also spent eight years as a come- dian aboard Carnival cruise ships. In addition Stone has appeared on Comedy Cen- tral, and A&E's Evening at The Improv, as well as Caro- line's Comedy Hour. He has opened for Rodney Danger- field, Tower of Power, Blue Oyster Cult, Jerry Seinfeld, Ray Romano and many, many more. Hicks is not just acomedian, he's more of a word-wizard that teleports effortlessly between light and dark without missing a beat or alienating audiences. His goofy smile and pleasantly awkward delivery belie not only the scope of his mate- rial but also the polish of his stage-awareness. Hicks has been cultivating a steady following working clubs in the mid-west and opening for comedy favorites such as Paul F. Tompkins. Neville says he is ready to get back to business as usual with this show after the last couple of months. "This show will be a nice change of pace," he adds. 'qlae last two months we've done a special family-friendly show and hosted a fundraiser. This time around, we just have to do the show and that's it." Last month's show was a special benefit show for the Humane Society of Stillwa- ter. Along with some special donations from Town & Gown Theati'e, Quality Inn Hotel, Stillwater Family Care and the All-American Rejects, Funnies Comedy Club raised over $1,600 for the Humane Society. "It was a special night all the way around," Neville adds. "I think Jackie [Ross-Guerrero, director for the Humane Society of Stillwater,] was surprised to see the donation amount at the end of the night. We will likely do it again next year, as well." Neville is also excited for the combination of Stone and Hicks on stage. "Tony is a 20-year veteran of clubs while Spencer is one of Oklahoma City's most well- known up-and-comers," he explains. "Amazingly enough, for being as different as they are in age and background, they are a little similar in style. I think that will make for an interesting contrast on stage." Tickets for Funnies Comedy Club presents Tony Stone are only $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Discounts are available for groups of eight or more. Tickets are available now online at www.myticketscene.com or cash purchases can be made at the Quality Inn.

This is the kind of chiller that takes its time, relies on tried-and- true techniques, and builds an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. Lawyer Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) must sort through the estate of a small town's recently deceased crazy lady. When Arthur starts seeing a woman in black and hearing voices, the villagers have nothing to say to him. This is Radcliffe's first leading role without a magic wand, and he does well enough to prove that he can stay alive post-Potter. He pulls it off as the grief and anxiety-stricken man trapped in a 1960s-style scary movie. "This Means War" (PG-13) - Chris Pine and Tom Hardy play two CIA agents who are super -cool deadly, handsome and super best bros for life. When they both fall for Reese Witherspoon, they decide to put their invaluable skills to work sabotaging each other's dates. It's a silly plot pushed to its most-Hollywood extent -- lowbrow humor and action sequences in a romantic comedy that's light on the iDnlance. If you can't handle the cheese-factor in the film, it Daniel Radcliffe in 'q'he Woman in Black" can cause physical discomfort with its lack of chemistry and low-hanging quips. However, if you have an itch to see a movie that moves along at a good pace and features secret agents shooting each other in the groin with air rifles, 'q'his Means War" could save the evening. "Red Tails" (PG-13) - The animated feature is the kind of family entertainment you wish you could have known as a rugrat. Arrietty is a 14- year-old girl, and one of a secret race of tiny people who live in the cracks and recesses of the human world. An'ietty gets discovered by Shawn, a normal-size human boy, and a secret friendship forms. The animation is top-notch. Tuskegee Airmen have a The characters, colors, action proud place in American his- tory, and "Red Tails" tells the story like it was written for a B-movie. The Airmen became the first African-American pilots in U.S. armed forces during World War II, and one of the most decorated units of the war. Somehow, this comes across as boring and generic in "RedTails," amovie so loaded with corny speeches that you would think it was running for student body president. "The Secret Worm of Arri- etty" (G) -- This Japanese scenes -- all of it just looks amazing. The film is a beauti- ful, gentle story with enough splendor and juice to keep you pulled in.
