Ryan: This is a two-horse race between 12 Years a Slave and Gravity and both would be worthy winners as they were two of the best films of the year.

The existential journey of Bullock’s character is as emotionally moving as anything I saw this year in cinema.
After Sunday night’s Oscar ceremony, we will turn our attention back to new releases.
