Ron Howard is known throughout Hollywood as one of the most talented, hardest-working people in the film industry. Audiences throughout the world have recently started being introduced to one of his recent movies "Rush" that was produced as an independent film and on thus with a budget that is much less than what a person of Ron Howard's reputation, expertise and knowledge would generally have access to. Yet, when audiences and critics have watched the film "Rush" they come back astounded by the movie he has produced.
Ron Howard has brought the life of Formula 1 racers to the big screen and done so in such a manner through his producing and the incredible cinematography that he has made a sport that for the average observer can almost look boring on television and made it an edge of your seat experience. His ability to use the personalities of the two lead characters, "Hunt" played by Chris Hemsworth and Niki Lauda played magnificently by "Daniel Bruhi" to show the world what motivates these appealing racers to perform with such reckless abandon is part of Ron Howard's brilliance.
Sometimes, Hollywood is similar to a person's family and friends in that because they know you are always available to help someone or you will always do what say you will do than a person may be taken for granted. This is possibly what has happened with the movie "Rush" and Ron Howard.
Ron Howard elicited exceptional performances out of Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhi and audiences throughout the world in places such as Tokyo are attending this movie in large numbers and leaving the theatre with great appreciation for this movie. One producer that the Oscar awards committee has definitely missed out on in 2014 in terms of award recognition is Ron Howard and his movie "Rush". Let's hope in the future the Oscar judges reward Ron Howard's excellence because they forgot to in 2014.
