Tim Cook isn’t a fan of all of the new Steve Jobs movies.

The Apple CEO stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday night, where he admitted that he hasn’t seen any of the new Steve Jobs films – and not just because he can’t stream them on his iPad yet.

Cook said he’s stayed away from the films because he feels they are not flattering depictions of Jobs, his former boss. Since Jobs passed away in 2011, there have already been several films based on his life, including Man in the Machine and Sony’s Steve Jobs.

“I love him dearly and I miss him everyday,” he told Stephen Colbert. “I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this, it’s not a great part of our wold. ”

Instead, he only had positive things to say about the Apple creator.

“He had this uncanny ability to see around the corner and to describe the future, not an evolutionary future, but a revolutionary future,” he raved.

The newest namesake film based on the life and career of Jobs, starring Michael Fassbender, hits theaters Oct. 9.
