The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher will open in theaters on April 19, the movie's distributor announced today.
The indie film, which is set to debut Friday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, covers Jobs' life during the years 1971 through 2000 -- a time frame that includes the founding of Apple, as well as his ouster, the formation of Next and Pixar, and then Jobs' return to the company when Apple acquired Next.

Apologies for being a little tardy on updating our long-running list of must-have Blu-ray movies, but here it is, refreshed for 2013. This month's updates entries include "Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection," "The Avengers," "Finding Nemo," "Jaws," "Lawrence of Arabia," and "Titanic."

We also keep an eye on AVS Forum's Blu-ray picture-quality and audio-quality threads, and have always appreciated the site's tiered rating system.

When you have a colorful story, several artists will want to paint it.
Just a few weeks ago, John McAfee, the security expert who secured a difficult path out of Belize after being sought for questioning in connection with the murder of his neighbor -- announced that he'd sold the movie rights to his tale to a Montreal-based TV production company called Future Media.
Now, I understand that the great Warner Bros. has decided that it will participate in trying to make money out of the McAfee legend.
Twitter is an acquired taste.
There are some who bathe in its immediacy and randomness. Others raise an eyebrow in condescending contemplation.
Hundreds of thousands of sentient beings were recently uplifted when Megan Fox, she of many wonderful movies whose names one doesn't always remember -- decided to plunge into Twitter's dark waters.
