X-Static Radio: 2013 Movie of the Year

Now we’all admit, we haven’t seen every single movie that came out this year but we have seen a significant amount to name the best one this year.

Our pick for movie of the year even surprised us of how good this movie is.

That movie is Ron Howard’s Rush.

RUSH starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl has made Oscar buzz and it has received two Golden Globes nominations. It has been nominated for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Daniel Bruhl)

Besides being a movie about racing and true story of James Hunt, it is a movie about striving to be the best and bouncing back up when you have been hit badly.

The real life rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda is inspiring, it’s a classic tale about being competitive against a rival.

After shining in Inglorious Basterds, Daniel Bruhl shines even bigger in Rush enough to get him nominated for a Golden Globe and enough to give him Oscar buzz.

We don’t know how well the film will do come award season but it definitely deserves the attention as Ron Howard does some cinematic magic again.

Honorable mentions include:

  • Gravity
  • Captain Phillips
  • Fast & Furious 6
