I’m a huge Apple enthusiast, so you can imagine I’ve been looking forward to seeing the new Steve Jobs movie. While Jobs has been deemed a genius over the years with his constant innovation, there are many pieces of his personality that began coming out more over the years from the people closest to him. This movie was to give more insight into the true Steve Jobs.The film was primarily set at three iconic product launches for Apple, beginning in the late 80s and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac (yes, the colorful blue one you remember from back in the day). It was pretty neat to see all of the older Mac products and the technology that we’ve come such a long way from (but that was innovative when it was first released).
Another big focus of the film was Jobs’ relationship with his daughter Lisa, who he didn’t like to awknowledge, for whatever reason. I’m not sure how accurate the scenes are that the movie depicted, but it was tough to watch, especially when the daughter was young and didn’t quite understand things.
The film stars some pretty big names – Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, and Kate Winslet, which is definitely one of the biggest attention-getters in terms of publicity for the film (plus, the Steve Jobs name, of course).To be honest, this isn’t one that I’d recommend going to the theaters for, but rather a wait til’ it’s on Redbox one. There were some very interesting parts, but all-in-all, it wasn’t quite what I expected. There were some plotlines that seemed to drag out longer than they needed to be, where other plotlines, product launches, etc. could’ve been brought into the film. It did, however, bring some interesting things about Steve Jobs to light!
Are you an Apple fan? Will you see the new Steve Jobs movie?
