    If anyone is looking for a good documentary movie of Steve Jobs, watch Pirates of Silicon Valley. It captures the tensions between rival Microsoft and the success and hardships of Apple. I doubt jOBS will top that movie.

    Why? How else would there even be enough content for a full length film? If you want the absolute truth, you gotta watch a documentary. Anyway, Wozniak was there. Obviously the film wouldn't live up to his accurate memory of events. As long as it gets the core of the story across its still acceptable IMO.

    The Social Network is a good example that proves that you can make a movie full of truths and still make it entertaining without it being a documentary.

    Lord of the Rings for example...they should have kept to the books -_- Why can't movie producers just stick to the facts...I just think it's so stupid.

    Eh. I haven't read the books or seen the movies but cramming a huge amount of content into a 2-3 hour film is never going to be exactly accurate in retrospect. I should have you know, though, the guy behind those films is quite easily the most successful producer to come from my country. As such, I take extreme offence to your comments, and I will now have to hunt you down and kill you. I know who you are, tim.



    :p

    Lol! I do like the movies more than the books though. For me watching movies>reading a book. I can't wait to see the Hobbit!! :D

    I agree with that. Pirates of Silicon Valley was a surprisingly good movie. it also got the general feeling/emotions driving Apple vs those driving Microsoft.
