Jobs got hammered by critics and has performed poorly at the box office. However, I'm guessing a lot of those critics aren't like me -- someone who grew up on Apple computers, devoured Walt Isaacson's biography, and has followed the company's every move for years.

There's nothing that terrible about Joshua Michael Stern's JOBS, a skimpy, often overly specific film biography about the late Apple inventor, Steve Jobs. Still, it would be interesting to see this film with another actor playing Jobs.

Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs: "We Get No Apple Residuals"

Regina Weinreich | Posted 10.08.2013 | Entertainment

For every inspirational speech introducing yet a new more inventive product than the last, Jobs, so focused on his vision, loses his connection to those who love him. That is what makes him so compelling a figure, so flawed; in Joshua Michael Stern's film, he's in a league with Picasso.

ReThink Review: The Dark Knight Rises - Haunted by the Ghost of Villains Past

The Dark Knight Rises is very impressive and definitely worth seeing, but without a once-in-a-lifetime performance like Ledger's Joker to provide the pulse, we'll have to be content with a final chapter that certainly delivers, but in a trilogy that peaked in the middle.

Movie Review: A Cat in Paris

Nominated for the Oscar as best animated feature (which went to the visually brilliant but drastically unfunny Rango), A Cat in Paris is a slight but entertaining tale, most noteworthy for going old-school, with hand-drawn animation.

It's hard to see the forest for the trees. And it's hard to see a movement when it is happening. That's where we are with Occupy Wall Street. So it's time to look back in time and read about successful campaigns by individuals that changed the course of human history.
