    I’m kind of apprenshive about it. On one hand, their’s a lot of talent here, but Boyle is inconsistent as a director.

    Without a doubt. Boyle, Fassbender, Sorkin it could be the next Social Network who knows?

    I voted for “yes, but only in an expanded field” cuz that’s the closest thing to a “maybe” of the options given.

    Boyle is hit or miss. Sorkin too for that matter (arguably more hit than not), but the cast is rock solid.

    That being said, even if it doesn’t live up to expectations, I can still see it getting into screenplay and getting a few acting nods at least.

    Just because I own Apple products doesn’t mean I want to see a film about the miserable git who founded the company. I can’t imagine many people do.

    Fincher and Bale bailed (couldn’t resist) on it. That’s already a sign. Sorkin’s portentous screenplays may appeal to the Academy’s overly developed sense of self-importance, but they can be very unwieldy.

    I adored Fassy but just look at his IMDb: he’s signed onto an endless number of roles, working for directors I’ve never heard of. He seems, unfortunately, to be following the Ewan McGregor/Jude Law career path into irrelevancy: there’s no role he won’t take! Don’t know whether it’s motivated by ego, greed or just the pride of doing a fellow actor out of a role (a London thing).

    The whole thing looks like a giant mess to me.

    I see Fassbender getting snubbed and Winslet and possibly the screenplay being the only nominations it gets.

    I think that it will be more like this year’s Gone Girl than The Social Network. A screenplay nomination, maybe an acting nomination, but left out of the picture lineup, even if it’s expanded.

    I voted no. I’ve heard some good early reports about the script, but I think the combination of its unconventional narrative structure, Boyle’s unreliability as a director, and Fassbender’s physical miscasting will limit its Oscar chances.

    There’s a critically praised documentary by Alex Gibney (“Going Clear”) about Jobs which was shown at SXSW. Don’t know whether that’s a positive or a negative or how much impact it will have. But it will refresh people’s memories about the real Jobs, making Fassbender’s job that much harder.

    Given the talent, probably if there’s still an expanded field. To think, we could be saying “Academy Award Winner Seth Rogen” next year.

    Yeah. It seems to have good enoough names, promising early world on the script and full-throated studio support. Of course those don’t always work, but as long as it’s good I don’t see this specifically having a problem.

    The film has promise but so did Chappie, Exodus: Gods & Kings, The Counselor and we know how the story goes.

    No. Acting, screenplay, makeup
