ZOMBIELAND (Ruben Fleischer, 2009)

My favorite scene (aside from everything with Bill Murray in it) was when Jesse Eisenberg said that the best thing about Zombieland was that “There are no Facebook status updates”, and then a year later he played Mark Zuckerberg on The Social Network.

JOBS (Joshua Michael Stern, 2013)

6FA93CAD-077A-4371-8A48-0EEEF8121541

Provided a superficial look at the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, depicted here as a genius a-hole. It’s no The Social Network.

Ashton Kutcher did a decent mimicry of Jobs, although there were scenes where he looked like a young Tom Cruise doing the impersonation.

You know that this film was simply glossing over its subject when the highlights were actually on Steve Wozniak, played by the funny Josh Gad.

You’re better off reading the Jobs biography.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
