Hollywood buzz about Ahstons performance being possibly Oscar-worthy!

I was withholding an opinion, but wth?

So far I've only seen the Trailers... and a few movies
staring Ashton Kutcher, and AFAIC he totally lacks the
passion & karisma of Our Late Fearless Leader.

...but I'm willing to give it a chance...

..and from the trailer,
they didn't even come CLOSE to The Woz!

I enjoyed "Pirates of Silicon Valley" so between
that.. and having seen so much of "The Real Thing"
they've got their work cut out for them

I hope they surprise me. smile

Usually the movie is nothing like the trailer, I hope that's the case here too.

Being from that era and into the tech in the 80s Pirates with Noah Wylie was really close to what it was like back then. Not much was Hollywood polished in Pirates. I hope this can capture the same mindset and not be too Hollywood, but first look...

Now I sound like Dave. smirk

It's a movie. Enjoy. Right?

I'm so confused.

Don't be confused.
There is one thing thing that brought us all together as a family.

I watched an IT pro today, dealing with my businesses Windows computers, desperately trying to make it all work.

It reminded me of how much I love my Mac family.

The movie may be good or bad, but we lived it.
Happy to have you all here, after all these years.

Are you going to see the movie eventually?

Word is that Ahston is expected to do great.. but that the director is a nobody with nothing much to his name. A bad director can axe an otherwise decent production.

That can go either way...
...I've seen unmatchable movies from 1st timers...

"What's New Pussycat?" was Woody Allen's first attempt
and Mel Brooks popped the cherry with "The Producers".

Can't remember who FINALLY accomplished "The Watchman"
but (at least to us rabid fans of the book) it was a
BRILLIANT endeavor of an allegedly impossible task.

Hehe. Good for you.

I'm looking forward to it. Steve J, as I understand, was a very complex individual. I appreciate many things I've heard. And as many here, my life has been affected mightily by Apple. I can't imagine my life with out it.

As for movies. I like catching things that are off in the movie. Also I like trying to discover underlying "agendas" in movies. Or points of view of the director or producers. But this is for another thread.

And he is probably right.
But, on the flip side, any movie will seem flat when you actually lived it.

I'll see it soon.. and then you will have an unbiased opinion.

Right!...LOLllll

Re: Jobs: The Movie - 08/28/13 02:03 PM

I think it's rather disingenuous of Kucher to say what he said about the Woz, but he can say what he wants .

Looking at the trailer, I wouldn't recognize that guy as Wozniak. But as Woz said, the movie is featuring Jobs not the other folks that developed Apple.

I would assume that every accomplishment that was apple will be attributed to Jobs.

If there are mis representations in the film, the sad part is that viewers will think that is what really happened.

ASIs said, it's just a movie. Not meant to be truthful .

To bad that Woz didn't think it was a good movie. That seemed to be his concern

As it stands now... most of the world thinks Jobs was responsible for practically everything.

Bumping old thread.

Saw this movie the other day. I wasn't too impressed with the acting or the movie in general.

It sucked more than Isaacson's book. Maybe the Sorkin flick will be better, but I doubt it.

Re: Jobs: The Movie - 01/30/14 08:45 PM

Thought it was "OK"... did document many of his trials and the downside of his ego.

Saw it last Friday the 30th Anniversary of the Mac.... what a coincidence !! grin

I listened to Isaacsons book and thought it to be a decent "read".

Re: Jobs: The Movie - 02/01/14 07:26 AM

He had a year and a half with Steve Jobs, on a one-on-one basis, and the only things he could come up with was crap we already knew.

I guess it's not that it was a 'bad' book, it's that it could have (and should have) been so much more.
