Broadsheet Trailer Park: Steve Jobs

at

jobs

What you may need to know:

1. It’s another Steve Jobs biopic, because anything Ashton Kutcher does can always be done better.

2. Local hero Michael Fassbender really rocks that turtle neck.

3. Doesn’t it look like The Social Network? Everything Aaron Sorkin writes is like The Social Network.

4. We can expect three, 30-minute scenes dramatising the half hour before Jobs goes on stage at a new product launch. Interesting. I hope it turns out better then the Newsroom. The three launches span 16 years of Jobs’ life.

5. Remember the Sony emails about this film? Angelina Jolie probably does. Sony then passed the film to Universal Pictures.

6. Danny Boyle is in charge now. He makes great films and opening ceremonies.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: They took our Jobs

Release Date: November 13

    Everything Aaron Sorkin writes is like The West Wing you mean.

    This trailer is kind of disapointing, would be nice to get a bit more exposition.

    1. swoon

      This is largely based on a true story.You might already be familiar with it even without the exposition.

    Never understood the hero-worship of this man. He had cancer and he turned to alternative medicine. What an idiot.

      1. TheDude

        You mean his daughter Lisa I think Clampers. At same time that he was denying patertnity he called his new Apple computer Lisa

  3. Clampers Outside!

    So long as he’s not painted as a saint, I may watch it.

    Kutcher didn’t do a bad job in my book… the film overall was yes, run of the mill, but it wasn’t sh*t.

    My tuppence.

    1. TheDude

      Yeah, I was expecting it to be awful too but it wasn’t. I think Kutcher at least looks a little like Jobs in it.. A good film about the same story – though with strands of Gates and Co included is The Pirates Of Silicon Valley (TV movie from 1999)..

      1. Weedless

        That’s not a bad movie from what I remember, Noah Wyle as Jobs is decent. It’s very of its time though especially since it was made before IPods, iPhones and iPads rejuvenated Apple.

      2. Lorcan Nagle

        Pirates of Silicon Valley is fantastic, probably the best biopic about the IT industry (which i mean nicer than it sounds), and multiple people featured in it have confirmed its veracity.

        I’d also recommend Triumph of the Nerds, a 3-part documentary which covers the same timeframe, and is hosted by one of the writers of the book pirates is based on. I believe it’s on YouTube

    Not the only forthcoming biopic today to receive criticism (Amy Winehouse is getting lashed out of it too).
    How can these productions ever be spot on, or avoid riling up at least one surviving relative or friend?

    1. Mani

      Winehouse doc gotten some amazing praise also, and is by the same dude behind the Senna doc.

  5. Cohen Hand

    Not that anyone gives a fig, but I thought The Newsroom was more sinned against than sinning.

    And mainly by bratty new media trolls who didn’t like the scorn Sorkin heaped upon them.

    Well, that and the obligatory ‘looking for love in all the wrong places’ school of female characterisation.

  6. curmudgeon

    Whoa whoa whoa what the hell was wrong with The Newsroom. Fupping great show, contained actual intelligent writing and didn’t pander to anyone. So the romantic sub plots werent perfect so what. Right now there is absolutely nothing on tv to replace it with.
