Movie Review: Jobs
This movie is about the life and career of Steve Jobs.
What I Like
What impressed me most about this film is Ashton Kutcher; he was excellent in his role and I have newfound respect for his dramatic acting capabilities.
I also enjoyed this movie’s soundtrack – it was awesome. Any time a film features music by REO Speedwagon, Cat Stevens and Toad The Wet Sprocket, it’s going to bring a smile to my face.
What I Don’t Like
I wish the film included the last few years of Jobs’ career. The closest we get to that is a scene where Jobs unveils the iPod to Apple employees for the first time. It’s a cool moment, but what about the launch of the iPhone and the iPad? And what about his health struggles at the end of his life? To me, this was a missed opportunity.
Despite its minor shortcomings, Jobs is a highly entertaining film that almost anyone will enjoy. If you come into it with an open mind about the subject matter and the lead actor, you’ll feel satisfied by the time the final credits role. I highly recommend it.

Movie Review – Evil Dead
Evil Dead is the most shocking, violent and bloody horror film I’ve ever seen. This 2013 reboot of the classic film franchise was produced by the original team behind the 1981 cult classic. I can’t compare Evil Dead to its predecessors because I don’t recall seeing any of them from start to finish, which is shocking since I’m an ardent fan of horror movies. Nonetheless, I can tell you with great confidence that this movie is only meant to be seen by those who don’t mind a lot of gore. If you have a weak stomach, steer clear of this one. However, if you’re game, what you’ll find here is a gritty horror film with excellent acting, terrific cinematography and a compelling narrative. I also enjoyed Evil Dead’s score. Whether it was a tender moment or an adrenaline-infused showdown, the music elevated the visuals and amplified the emotion in every scene. For horror fans with a strong stomach, I can’t recommend Evil Dead enough. It’s one of the most disturbing films I’ve ever seen, and also one of the most satisfying.
Movie Review – Nick of Time
I recently watched the 1995 thriller, Nick of Time, and it was great. Unfortunately, this film was a box office bust. It cost $33 million to make and only brought in a little over $8 million. Part of this lackluster return may have been because of dismal reviews from critics. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it only received a 29% approval rating, which is shocking considering the gripping narrative and wonderful cast. For me, what made this film so good was Christopher Walken’s performance; Walken always excels as a villain, and this was one of his greatest roles ever. Johnny Depp also did a terrific job and the supporting cast, including the always-consistent Charles S. Dutton, was strong across the board. Ignore the naysayers and give Nick of Time a shot. It’s a compelling thriller that’ll keep your attention from start to finish and make you wonder how Christopher Walken is able to effortlessly embody a deliciously villainous role.
Below’s the film’s synopsis and trailer, as well as a clip highlighting Christopher Walken’s stellar performance. Enjoy!
A stranger pulled into a deadly scheme races against time to save his daughter in this thriller. Gene Watson (Johnny Depp) is an accountant who comes to L.A. with his ten-year-old daughter Lynn (Courtney Chase) to attend a funeral. On the street, Gene and Lynn are pulled aside by Mr. Smith (Christopher Walken) and Ms. Jones (Roma Maffia), who flash what look like police badges and usher them into a van. Gene soon discovers that he’s been kidnapped, and his captors have an unusual demand — if Gene does not murder Gov. Eleanor Grant (Marsha Mason) within 75 minutes, his daughter will be killed. Gene now has just an hour and a quarter to tip off the authorities, spare Gov. Grant, and find out what Smith and Jones are trying to do, along with saving his daughter’s life. He finds a much-needed ally in one-legged shoe-shine man Huey (Charles S. Dutton).
