Jobs craziness and high ambitions make Apple one of leading company in the tech world.

Back in 1974, Steve Jobs was just another aimless guy. But he became one of the most polished and powerful men in the world. This biopic doesn’t quite make the same journey. Full review
Jobs is an ambitious but an incomplete effort. It’s ‘not bad’ but that’s certainly not what Steve Jobs stood for. Full review
The acting is fine, but the movie ends up being more like a really expensive corporate pep rally for Apple employees than a nuanced depiction of a fascinating but flawed man. Full review

Jobs falls short of being anything more than an ordinary movie experience that chronicles the life of an extraordinary man. Full review

Jobs Movie Motivational Scene
Steve Jobs: Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things – they push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Steve Jobs: [narrating] When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way that it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world and try not to bash into the walls too much. But that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is that everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. To shake off this erroneous notion that life is just there, and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it. Change it, improve it. Make your mark upon it. And once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.
Ed Woolard: If you want to get back what you lost, now is the time.
Steve Jobs: I never lost anything. It was stolen from me.
Steve Wozniak: I just wanted to be one of the guys. And of all the guys I knew, you were the coolest. You were smart, quick-witted. This was my chance to do what I loved. And to do it for fun. That’s all I ever wanted. I thought that’s what you wanted to. Something’s happening to you, Steve.
[begins walking away]
Steve Jobs: I’m growing up, Woz.
Steve Wozniak: No. No you’re not.
John Sculley: You can make a great product. But you have to convince people that what you’re selling is greater. We’re not selling computers. We’re selling what they can do with a computer. A tool for the mind. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is limitless.
Steve Jobs: [to Macintosh team] I don’t ever want to hear you tell me you can’t make it faster.
Steve Jobs: Nobody remembers the world best soda salesman.
Steve Jobs: [to Bill Gates on the phone] Let me make this perfectly clear, Bill, so that when I’m finished you can still see through those thick pretentious glasses you psychopathic unimaginative criminal! You stole… my software!
Steve Jobs: We’re gonna kill every other project. Everything. This company will not make shit anymore.
Steve Jobs: [pointing the chips on the Apple I board] It’s got to be straight, and those more symmetric.
