By Cody Lee on Nov 26, 2013

For those of you who were unable to see it in theaters, Ashton Kutcher’s much talked about ‘Jobs’ film is now available for purchase. You can either buy it or rent it in iTunes, and then of course it’s available in Blu-Ray and DVD as well.

After months of rumors and a lengthy delay, ‘Jobs’ opened to mixed reviews on August 16. It stayed in theaters for just 7 weeks, and only pulled $35 million worldwide. It was considered by many to be a flop, but now you can be the critic… Read More

 

Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ biopic is a box office flop

By Christian Zibreg on Aug 19, 2013

The Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher as Apple’s legendary co-founder Steve Jobs has opened with disappointing revenues and bombed at the box office this weekend. Specifically, the flick pulled in just shy of seven million dollars domestically, earning it the seventh place at the box office. This is one of Kutcher’s lowest openings ever and hardly a success knowing the figure fell short of the $8-9 million distributor Open Road Films was hoping to rake in.

And as if mixed reviews weren’t enough, the movie has failed to impress the trusted review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes which gave it a rating of just 25 percent… Read More

 

Some thoughts on Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ biopic

By Cody Lee on Aug 18, 2013

The long-awaited ‘Jobs’ biopic, starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, opened in theaters this weekend, and by all counts it’s been a bit of a flop. According to Deadline Hollywood, it’s sitting at the #7 spot, pulling in just $6.7 million domestically.

But is it really that bad of a movie? No. Then why is it doing so poorly? That’s a tough question to answer, but I’m going to try to do it in the following paragraphs. Don’t worry, I imagine this is the fiftieth ‘Jobs’ review you’ve come across, so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.

I saw Jobs yesterday afternoon, with my girlfriend. We went to the 12:50pm showing, and unfortunately we got there just as the previews were starting. So if they had shown the new Mac Pro commercial, we missed it.

The movie opens with Ashton—I mean Steve making his way to the stage for his big iPod unveiling in October of 2001. It then flashes back to his early 20′s and proceeds to take us on a journey of the founding of Apple… Read More

In emotional interview, Ashton Kutcher reflects on Steve Jobs’ legacy

By Cody Lee on Jul 25, 2013

It seems like the tech world collectively chuckled and rolled its eyes when it found out that Ashton Kutcher—the stoner star from That 70′s Show and Hollywood’s go-to guy for b-rated romantic comedies—was going to be playing Steve Jobs in a feature film.

But Kutcher has turned more than a few heads with his portrayal of Apple’s co-founder in Open Road Films’ ‘Jobs.’ And looking at this clip of his appearance on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show from last night, he obviously had tremendous respect for the man… Read More
