Goofs

In the first act, Steve Jobs talks about the issue of Time Magazine naming "The Computer" as Person of the Year, instead of him and the Macintosh. Despite the scene taking place on Jan 24th, 1984, that issue came out in December of 1982 and the Time's Person of the Year from 1983 was Ronald Reagan and Yuri Andropov. See more »

Film Different: A Cool Movie - Not meant to be a documentary
21 October 2015 | by calibanplayerSee all my reviews

This movie is a dramatization, based on stuff that really happened, and it is a really cool movie.

No, this movie isn't meant to show history exactly as it happened. If you want to know all that read the book by Walter Isaacson. It's a great book.

The script is pure Sorkin-Porn. Rapid-fire dialogue with 2 conversations going on at the same time. If you liked The West Wing or any of Aaron Sorkin's other movies, you'll feel at home with this one.

They also get the small emotional moments right as well. Some of the best moments are between Steve and his daughter.

The directing and editing is masterful. I liked the choice to shoot on different formats for the different years and the flashback scenes punctuate the drama on screen perfectly.

All the actors do a fine job, especially Michael Stuhlbarg who plays Andy Hertzfeld.

I hope when they release this movie on blu ray they include the video of the real Steve doing these product launches as bonus features.

If you can get past the fact that this movie isn't a word for word recreation of history, you will enjoy it.
