Goofs

Backstage before the Macintosh launch in 1984, Steve Wozniak excitedly tries to describe to Steve Jobs the size and energy of the crowd in the auditorium. He struggles to come up with a suitable comparison and Jobs eventually informs him that he can't wait for Woz to come up with a metaphor. As Wozniak had used the work "like" several times in his failed attempt, the comparison would have been a simile, not a metaphor. See more »

We will know soon enough if you are Leonardo da Vinci or just think you are.
12 February 2017 | by Marwan-BobSee all my reviews

The best part of Danny Boyle's biopic is the whip smart dialogue one would already expect from screenplay maestro Aaron Sorkin and the solid performances from Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels. This is strongly supported by a fantastic musical soundtrack from Daniel Pemberton. Where the film falls down (in my opinion), is in its structure. It has 3 segments: 1984 with the first release of the Mac, 1986 after the controversial firing of Jobs from his own company and his release of the NEXT computer and culminates in 1997 with his rise back to the top and release of the new IMac. Overall, The film didn't truly cover any new ground and left me still wanting to know so much more about what made the man tick. An entertaining and well made film for sure just not the masterpiece it could have been.
