  1. Hollywood A-lister Christian Bale has reportedly bailed (no pun intended) on his role as Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic of the Apple co-founder.

    "Wozniak’s character would likely only be featured in a minor supporting role."

    Not if the film were in any way accurate. Jobs was just a crooked salesrep and a filthy libertarian douchebag.

    'Filthy libertarian' is a new one. Care to enlighten me?
     
  8. Just how many films are they going to make about him? Jeez... gotta keep milking the Apple sheep I suppose.

    Sigh... I'm bothered by biopics, be it good or bad. They are just big excuses for actors to win Oscars. It’s a corrupted cinema. Even the most interesting person – if they are telling their life from beginning to end, it’s going to be a boring movie. If they do this, they have to do a comic book version of their whole life.

    Glad Christian Bale left this one. Not worth putting in his filmography.
