Criminals plan ATM robbery in short film His nickname is “Olafantastic” and I can see how he earned it. Timothy Olyphant is an athlete (he swam competitively for USC), an artist (his drawings draw raves), and a devoted husband and father (he's been married to his college sweetheart since 1991, with whom he has a son and two daughters). He’s easy on the eyes, respected by his fellow actors, and scandalfree. To top it all off, Olyphant is the rare actor who excels not only at playing good guys and bad guys but guys in between, like lovable loser Dick, a clueless junkie bank robber in 2009’s indie treasure “High Life.” Our story takes place in 1983 in Winnipeg, Ontario, where we meet our “hero” Dick (Olyphant), a scraggy-looking guy with bad hair and no future beyond his next fix. Dick’s been in and out of prison so much that his wife finally left him, taking their son with her. He works as a hospital custodian now. It’s a lousy job but it’s the only one he’s been able to hold and it does give him access to his favorite drug morphine – at least until his old cellmate and fellow junkie Bug (Stephen Eric McIntyre) shows up at work one day and manages to get Dick fired. Dick isn’t all that upset. Bug might
Mary Anne Hempe Forgotten Video be a dangerous psychotic with absolutely no conscience, but Dick is glad his old pal is out of the pen. Dick knows he can depend on Bug when it comes to criminal enterprise. Forget the job; Dick has a plan to steal enough money to buy a year's supply of dope all at once. He's going to rip off one of those fancy new ATMs. A non-junkie would immediately recognize Dick’s plan as somewhere between stupid and beyond stupid, but Dick is convinced that nothing can go wrong. He's thought of everything. In addition to Bug, Dick enlists the aid of hypochondriac thief Donnie (Britain’s Joe Anderson, who will appear in the next “Twilight” installments as Alistair), and ladies’ man Billy (Rossif Sutherland, son of Donald and Keifer’s half-brother). Like the others, Billy is a junkie. Unlike them, Billy has never done time, which causes friction in the group. According to Bug and Donnie, someone like that just can't be trusted. But Dick has no choice.

He needs Billy's charm and luck — traits that none of the other team members have — to get them through the plan's critical first phase. Once that’s out of the way, the rest of the scheme will go like clockwork and they’ll walk away with hundreds of thousands in cash. No one will be hurt. And no one will be killed. The plan is flawless. In theory, at least. “High Life” started out as a stage play in Montreal, where it won several awards for playwright Lee MacDougall. Perhaps one reason why “High Life” made such a successful transition to the screen is that MacDougall also co-wrote the screenplay (with “High Life’s” director Gary Yates), and was able to keep his four main characters just the way he wanted them, warts and all. Another reason is the fabulous cast; Olyphant is terrific as the group’s lame excuse for a “moral compass,” Joe Anderson is a hoot, and Stephen Eric McIntyre steals every scene he’s in — he has an amazing face! Hollywood should definitely take notice and start casting him in splashy bad-guy roles. The soundtrack is awesome and the hallucinatory moments (like the horse) are great. “High Life” is rated R (for language, violence, and drug usage) and is a brisk 80 minutes long.

Jump blues chanteuse Kirsten Thien’s third album starts with a fiery blast of brass. It’s a hot first taste of an album memorable for being a tribute to love and lust. Aurally these songs taste good but don’t be surprised if you have hickies on your ears after listening. The first two tracks “Love That’s Made To Share” and “Nobody’s Ever Loved Me Like You Do” along with six more are Thien’s originals.

OU alumnus creates children’s album for all ages By Aaron Wright Gray pop editor
So he may be a self-proclaimed children’s artist, but Oklahoma City artist Brendan Parker’s upbeat, rhythmic tunes will be a treat for adults who are kids at heart as well. “Spaghetti Eddie! And Other Children’s Songs” is Parker’s first time to create a children’s album. This University of Oklahoma alumnus has spent more than 10 years performing, spending time in California doing so before returning to Oklahoma. This album was first put together as a gift for his goddaughter. The 10 tracks on the album range from the educational “Body Parts,” “How Many Colors Do You Know?” and “Days of The Week” to the imaginative “Make Believe” and “Kitty Cat Town.” Parents will love the “Pick It Up” song that encourages children clean up their messes. “Sleepy Song” is a catchy lullaby. “The day was fun, but now it’s done,” Parker croons during the gentle song. The title track “Spaghetti Eddie” is a fast-paced character-based tune sure to bring a smile to the lips of all listeners. My favorite song on Parker’s first children’s album is “Together Like You and Me.” It could be a cute love song for either
romantic relationships or family relationships. It could also be interpreted as a song about friendship. “Peanut butter and jelly, meatballs and spaghetti. The bees and honey go together like you and me,” Parker sings, opening the song. Similar comparisons about ketchup and mustard, toothbrushes and toothpaste, milk and cereal and thunder and lightning follow this opening line. Parker is currently working on two other albums, one being a follow up children’s album. “Spaghetti Eddie! And Other Children’s Songs” is currently sold on iTunes and CD Baby as well as in Full Circle Book Store, Zoe and Co., Gretta Sloan and The Learning Tree, all in Oklahoma City.
A Review: ‘Yogi Bear’ a bit of a stretch By James Franklin MCT News Wire
When you think of a bear roaming the forest, you might mentally conjure the image of a hulking, fanged beast with powerful forelegs, matted fur, and mud and scat caked on its stubby hind quarters. Put a cartoon bear in that same forest and you get something that looks like a bad dream you might have had as a kid, when the line
between fantasy and reality was less distinct. The movie “Yogi Bear” places computer-animated bears in the same liveaction space as human actors and pretends the combination doesn’t look profoundly weird. The problem stems from Yogi himself — he retains the bulging eyes, wide mouth and rubbery body he had in the old TV cartoons. Watching a cartoon creature with photorealistic fur
and visible bottom fangs harass park visitors sounds like a recipe for children’s nightmares. “Yogi Bear” takes the cartoon’s simple, recurring premise — Yogi tries to steal “pic-a-nic” baskets — and grafts on a love story between Yogi’s foil, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), and a documentary filmmaker (Anna Faris), plus a plot in which villains try to sell the logging rights to Jellystone Park.
