ashton-kutcher-as-steve-jobsI went to go see “Jobs” the movie last night. Let me first say that I paid $9.50 for a ticket and $10.50 for a Vitamin Water and a small popcorn. The movie was supposed to start at 9:00, but for 22 minutes I had to sit through car and soda commercials then a couple of trailers. What in the world!? (yeah, I don’t frequent the theaters)

I became a fan of Ashton in “Butterfly Effect”. His real name is Chris Ashton Kutcher by the way. His Steve Jobs character was outstanding. I’m not sure it’ll win an Academy Award, but he will probably be nominated for it. If it weren’t for his distinctive voice, some of the shots you could swear it was Steve himself.

There was something missing from the movie. It very well could be from the high expectations many movies set these days though. But it seemed kind of dull. I can’t put my finger on it.

I believe there’s another Steve Jobs movie coming along, I’m looking forward to seeing that one as I believe Woz is consulting on the movie.

    how many stars did you give it, you can’t review a movie without stars
    from what I’ve read it doesn’t show his true character very well, for instance the mother of his child was on welfare while he refused to pay child support for 2 years….

  2. I think that the feeling you get about “something missing” is a result of knowing the subject too well. If you are in tech you know at least half of the story simply by being awake. If you read the Isaacson book last year you know the other half, and then some. So the movie will seem flat if it skips any details. With that said, I am still looking forward to watching this movie.
