Ashton Kutcher stars in Jobs, the new movie about Steve Jobs and his life. This movie has been heavily panned by critics and Apple Founder Steve Wozniak “Woz” for it’s gross inaccuracies.
All in all…. the movie is good. Not excellent or merely OK, but good, and it does indeed hit an “excellent” in one spot… inspiration.
You can tell this movie is done by Apple fanboys, but Apple fanboys that became fans after Steve and Apple went through hell and back and finally delivered the comeback for Apple that nobody in the industry thought possible. Recent Apple fanboys inherently have a bit of whimsical nostalgia for the past. So assumptions are made and some things are compressed or off. Article Continues…
Some would say that since its very inception in 1988, Other World Computing has been a star. And in a way, it’s true—we’ve always striven to provide “out of this world” products, services, and customer experiences. But in this case, we’re looking at achieving a different kind of stardom. Yes, we’re talking about celebrity. The “A” List, if you will. The elite, the red-carpet-walking, Botox-injecting, crash-diet following, only-green M&M-eating set that star in your favorite films. And now OWC is set to join the ranks of these stars and is about to embark upon its big break.
OWC is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring an upcoming independent film called “Intramural” by providing our Mercury Elite Pro drives to store the massive amounts of data needed to create a film. Everyone knows a good film needs a strong lead—okay, in this case that lead will be Jake Lacy (of The Office fame)—but they also need strong data support. And that is where OWC comes in to save the day. Article Continues…
Back in April, humor website Funny or Die released a satirical Steve Jobs biopic in a mad dash to beat two other more serious films that were already in production to the punch. In fact, they were in such a hurry that there wasn’t much time for story, accuracy or, you know, good jokes.
Now that we’ve had time to hate reflect on the warm-up act, we get our first extended look at the first of the two “legitimate” movies about the former Apple CEO with the trailer for Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher. Jobs actually premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and was originally slated for a wide release in April but was pushed back to its current Aug. 16 release date for unknown reasons. A third Steve Jobs movie – based on the official adaptation of Jobs’ authorized biography by Walter Isaacson – is currently in development by writer Aaron Sorkin.
Judge for yourself, but Kutcher definitely looks the part … until he opens his mouth, that is. But we’ll reserve full judgment until the movie is released.
What are your impressions of the trailer? Sound off and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Last week we shared Audi’s two Spocks commercial with you and it staved off our anticipation for our company outing this weekend to see Star Trek: Into Darkness for a little while. However after finding this gem of a Start Trek short from internet sensations Rhett & Link, I’m thinking I don’t even need to see the movie anymore. How could it possibly be better than this?
So, which do you think is better? Tell us in the comments.
