“Jobs”

May 17, 2014

So I finally sat myself down to watch the Steve Jobs biopic aptly titled: Jobs, yesterday.  And although not as good as I expected, it is certainly good for what it is.  It doesn’t gloss over the uglier aspects of the man behind Apple Computers, nor does it go into the post-Ipod part of his life which is also okay.  It’s not a film about Steve Jobs having cancer, but a film about how he starts a computer revolution, loses an empire, and then comes back out on top of that same empire, which maneuvered him out.  Ashton Kutcher looks just like the guy too.  It’s definitely boring in parts, but it is what it is.  It’s interesting to see just how hard it was for Steve Jobs in social situations, lots of yelling, and spouting of obscenity when he didn’t absolutely love or agree with something.  You see the genius, you see the monster, and you see the man.  And you see just how smart the guy was, and can barely fathom that only mere decades later, all of his inventions have basically changed the course of history.  So love the guy or hate the guy, or feel indifferent about the guy, this movie really gives a deeper glimpse into the inner workings of the early computer industry, and I just find it remarkable, moreso than any other aspect of the film.  It is good on the whole, but my mind is boggled by this one aspect of it all, and that is incredible.
