STEVE JOBS marks the third biopic of the Apple cofounder, and the second within the past two years. It also just happens to be this reviewer’s honest opinion that it is easily the best of the three. Sorry Ashton Kutcher. Let me start by saying that by the end of the first half hour of the movie, I was convinced I was watching Steve Jobs himself on the screen. That’s how amazing Michael Fassbender portrayed the man. He’s already in talks to be nominated for an Oscar for this performance and I could quickly understand why that might be the case. Kate Winslet and Seth Rogan also play their parts impeccably as Joanna Hoffman and Steve Wozniak, respectfully. Then we have the always incredible, Jeff Daniels, rounding out the cast with another great performance (we’ll just forget about Dumb and Dumber To).

This week on What to Stream Right Now, we’re delving into the deepest parts of the cosmic unknown and watching some pretty iconic science fiction. But that’s about where the similarities end for these two. As always, make sure to check out our previous episodes if you’re not a fan of the sci-fi genre.

This week on What To Stream Right Now we’re discussing a movie and tv show about geniuses! Because who doesn’t want to be one…

GOOD WILL HUNTING – Dir. Gus Van Sant (1997) IMDb

Will Hunting (played by Matt Damon) is a young janitor at M.I.T, but as you could probably guess, he’s also something of a math genius. However, he can’t seem to find direction in his life and looks to psychologist Sean Maguire (played by the late Robin Williams) for help. They form a unique relationship, which quickly transforms into a wonderful friendship.
