News and Notes on the Hit Movies of 2014: A Chat with Michael Smith, Film Critic at The Tulsa World

Aired on Thursday, December 18th.

From "American Sniper," "Into the Woods," and "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" to "Wild," "The Imitation Game" (shown here), and "Boyhood," we're dishing on this installment of StudioTulsa about several of the notable movies that arrived (or else will soon arrive) in theaters in 2014. Our guest is Michael Smith, film critic at The Tulsa World. Smith joined this city's daily newspaper (per the World's website) "in 1996, where he's covered everything from a school shooting in Fort Gibson to a tornado in Stroud to witnessing an execution. A little community theater coverage was sprinkled in there, too. Movies engender many of [Smith's] happiest memories, from standing in line for 'Star Wars' and 'Grease' at the Southroads Cinema to the James Bond and Pink Panther movies that always premiered at the enormous Continental Theater."
