Aaron Sorkin is my favorite writer. In any medium. Books, TV, Movies, Comics, Video Games; if Sorkin wrote the phone book I would read it obsessively. I just got done binge-watching the final, criminally short run of The Newsroom, and he turned what could have been a write-off, six-episode pity season into a brilliant loop that turns the series into a giant novel.
Speaking of big books, Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs is the basis for this adaptation of Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s look at Steve Jobs. If you don’t know who Steve Jobs is, after someone hits you with a tack hammer, you can point to about ten items in the room in which you’re reading this that he had a hand in creating. He was one of the truly great minds of our time, and I cannot wait to see what Sorkin does with his life’s story when Steve Jobs releases in October.
