A poor Jobs
ON Friday night, my business partner and I left the office in excitement to go to Polo Park and catch the release of the movie Jobs. Since I was a kid, I’ve looked up to Steve Jobs as one of the greatest innovators of all time. We got to the movie incredibly early to make sure we could get tickets and find seats. We got there 30 minutes early and to our surprise no one was there. I started to think people were watching this film at other theatres or they all went to the early shows. I thought this was supposed to be a big movie release given the movie hype. Thirty minutes into the movie, I had no idea what was going on. The movie was all over the place. Following the storyline was difficult; even for an Apple fan like myself. The acting was brutal, and the entire movie was Steve being really mad, crying, or telling people to go %$#* themselves. I left 55 minutes into the movie because it was that bad. I was really disappointed this movie turned out so gawd awful. I was hoping for it to be quite good just because how awesome the Social Network was. The Steve Jobs story is much cooler in my opinion than Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s story; but the Social Network kicks the crap out of Jobs. Ashton Kutcher did a really poor job with the movie — along with the writing and directing, they basically made the entire movie a bunch of inspirational quotes, advertising tag lines and a checklist of biopic clichés. Steve Wozniak, one of the original founders of Apple, even said he doesn’t recommend going to see Jobs. He said the movie was way too much fiction. Can you believe that when planning the Jobs movie they didn’t even ask for Woz’s input on the storyline or ask one of the founders of Apple to help formulate and mould the script? Jobs disappointed me, and I wouldn’t recommend it.
