Ep. 186 of War Machine vs. War Horse: Steve Jobs (Pirates of Silicon Valley vs. Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine)

On this episode we steal, like all great artists do, from the new Danny Boyle/Aaron Sorkin film STEVE JOBS by using our own three act structure focused on different movie launches on this man’s life.  In the TNT television film PIRATES OF SILICON VALLEY, the focus is primarily on the battle Jobs and Apple had with Bill Gates and Microsoft, released at a time when Microsoft was the clear victor in this battle back in 1999. Then we jump ahead to a new documentary that arrived this year from Alex Gibney called STEVE JOBS: THE MAN IN THE MACHINE. This film questions the deification of Jobs by the general public and thus offends me as I type this on my iMac. But first, returning guest Ben from the podcast  Cinematic For the People  joins me for a film that presents the deification of Aaron Sorkin in STEVE JOBS.

But first, Britt gives an unpopular opinion that Se7en is not all that it is cracked up to be, and might even be borderline offensive.  Dave returns to talk about corruption in the police, in world leaders, and even how it is affected by testosterone.  Finally, Hadas comes to talk about why she loves such a dark movie in Se7en!
