One thing you can say for Michael Fassbender: he’s no Ashton Kutcher…thank God for that. Because finally, after multiple attempts, we get a film about the Apple icon that’s pretty damn great. Even with all the talent in this new Danny Boyle film, we hold up screenwriter Aaron Sorkin to be the shining star of the movie. Listen to Chris, JC and Elliott describe it in words that, quite frankly, seem embarrassingly trite next to what Sorkin would have said.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Is Brian ever going to be on a review again?

    I’m betting that the movie will win for Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Picture.

    BIll Gates doesn’t have to be dead, for a movie to made about him; Just look at Straight Outta Compton.

    I would like to see a film on how Warren Buffer built his empire and add Bill Gates friendship, but I guess Warren doesn’t have the cool factor that Steve has.

    Something tells me the film literally ends with Jobs and his daughter being happy together, hinting that he’s a better person now… I hope I’m not right.

  • Pirates of Silicon Valley was better

  • Austin/Chubblicious

    I cant wait to see this movie, Social Network is easily one of my all time favorite movies, hearing that this is comparable to that makes me excited. I’d also love to hear your opinions on Beasts of No Nation, I watched it last night and loved it, But I probably shouldn’t have watched it right before I went to bed because I could not stop thinking about it.
