A biography that does not deal with the most interesting in Jobs life.
★★★★½ review by Korey Hall on Letterboxd
Great film trying to portray the life of Steve Jobs, i think they did well but much was made up purely to make things interesting, very inspirational and motivational, fantastic watch for geeks like me haha!
★★★½ review by Alice Souza on Letterboxd
" Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently…they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius."
(This will probably be a very tiny and biased review from an avid Apple fangirl)
Steve Jobs is an asshole. One of the biggest assholes that ever walked on this Earth (as you can clearly read on Walter Isaacson's biography about him). But boy, was that asshole a genius.
Kutcher did justice to Jobs' personality and the costume/make up was incredible. Many of the reviews I read were complaining about how Ashton was a bad actor and only acted like a visionary jerk for 2 hours. But the thing is, Steve Jobs was an visionary jerk, just like Mark Zuckerberg is an introvert dickhead and was made to look like one when portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg. Don't blame the actor for the character.
The cinematography was really beautiful and the actor's choice was really really good, especially Woz.
Also, I've got a 'The Social Network' vibe from it, and couldn't help but wonder how even better this film would be if it was directed by Fincher in the same style of Zuckerberg and his company's history.
Besides rather one dimensional characters, and some missing plot points (such as the purchase of Pixar) because of the very obvious little time for such a huge story, I liked it very much.

Wonderful casting. Never seen before Ashton Kutcher. Powerful dialogues got me glued to the movie. I thought I was not made for biopics and there comes this movie to break the myth of mine. Time to revisit "The Social Network" which I left it in the middle a year back. Also this movie convinced me to own the Apple products sooner !
Thank you Steve Jobs.

Greg's December Challenge"The December Project 2013"
Movie Number: #10
Movie Title: Jobs
Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad
Runtime: 128 minutes
Really unsure of how I felt about this one. I know nothing about Steve Jobs other than he created Apple. Everything else I learnt through this movie. So how accurate is this? No idea.
The movie was decent and was good and as far as I know Asthon Kutcher did a decent job playing Steve Jobs. It was interesting to how computers have become revolutionized over the last few decades.
I've seen this get some bad reviews but as someone going in blind to Steve Jobs I liked it.
I've got his book to read so may well pick that up soon.
