I recently watched the new Steve Jobs movie. It’s very different than the other Steve Jobs film I’ve seen. For instance, instead of following Jobs’ life over a period of time, the new film tells the story of Jobs by focusing on three major events in his life: the launch of the Macintosh, the launch of the NeXT Cube, and the launch of the iMac. The story was very intense, but I enjoyed the drama. Steve Jobs is available now in digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on February 16th. Continue reading to learn six things about the movie (giveaway).

I finished watching Show Me a Hero last night. It’s a 6-part mini-series from HBO. Each part/episode is about 60 minutes long. Show Me a Hero is based on a true story that took place in Yonkers, New York in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. A lot characters were introduced in the first episode, so it was confusing at first. Other than that, the story was fairly easy to follow. Overall, I enjoyed the series. The story was interesting, the acting was good, and I loved the use of Bruce Springsteen music throughout the drama. Show Me a Hero is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. BTW, I received the DVD set for review on my blog.

Marvel Universe LIVE! will be at the Moda Center March 3-6.
