Movie Review: "Jobs" (2013)

Jobs (directed by Joshua Michael Stern) is not a bad movie like many people & critics seem to think and I actually liked it. Ashton Kutcher plays Apple icon Steve Jobs and he's not bad either, I think the bad reviews he got were very undeserving.

This movie follows Jobs from his days at Reed College, to his short stint at Atari where he partners up with his old friend Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad who really looks a lot like the real Woz) to create Apple Computer, and then shows the story of Apple from those early days up until the introduction of the iPod in 2001.

I believe this movie does a decent job of telling Jobs' story from those early days and portrays him as the visionary he was as well as how much of an asshole he was.

This isn't a great movie and probably could have gone a bit deeper, but I did like it...6.5/10 stars
