'Social Network' scribe 'strongly considering' Steve Jobs movie - Page 2

post #41 of 47
.

Movie of the Week

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movie_of_the_week

.

What it would probably be

And, imho, what "Social Network" was

Aside from a re-make/copy of "Pirates Silicon Valley"

But merely Facebook instead of Apple

.

If want to do justice to Steve Jobs, tell his story ?

Come back in 50 to 100 years, or more

His work, and influence on History, has just gotten started

.

Change the World

I would say trilogy would make more justice and cover all the events from his early teenager days.. or maybe it should take of from where Pirates of silicon valley left off.. I loved that movie and watched it a couple of times.. Whatever the direction they take they have a tough job at hand to really do justice to the historical events at apple and elsewhere..

I would urge said scribe to strongly consider not strongly considering the Steve Jobs movie. "Social Network" wasn't that great, to be honest.

Was Sorkin not the person who could never find time to write that address to Princeton students for SJ?

Social Capitalist, dreamer and wise enough to know I'm never going to grow up anyway... so not trying anymore.

None of his movies and shows are anything special. They aren't bad, but they aren't Oscar material or anything.
In the 70's he'd be the guy penning all those "movies of the week" on whatever the issue of the day was at the time.

The only reason Social Networks was popular was that it drew attention from the same crowd of shallow people who think having lots of "friends" on Facebook means they have a life.

It is a shame all the sleazeballs are lining up to try and profit off of Steve Jobs death.

Maybe Sorkin can win a Nobel Prize for his Steve Jobs movie? He would have done as much or more than Obama did to win his.

Good catch, I missed that honking irony. Page 456 in the hardcover.
