This was SO BORING! Avoid at all costs. The handsomest actor is immobilized in a hospital bed the whole time, buried under a tone of make up.
It's painful to watch a bunch of assholes. The movie consists of a bunch of assholes and one naive nice guy. The assholes mistreat the nice guy and the nice guy suffers but it all ends happily ever after. Painful, and boring, too...
Wow, I think I like the harsh negative critics better than this... whatever this is you wrote. You think it's the weakest entry in the series? Fine (although I absolutely do NOT agree with you and would love to angrily rant to you why), but honestly, you're a critic, review like a critic! Where's your evidence it's the weakest entry in the series? I'm a 14 year old teenager and even I wrote a better review in my website than you!
It stunk up our house, did not see chemistry between Drew and Justin, raunchy seldom works...
I wish the critic would give some practical information and say where we can watch this film in the East Bay. There is nothing more frustrating than wanting to see a film but not being able to see it. Since this is the East Bay Express, it seems like the subject matter should be about something in the East Bay. All I can find is a movie time in a San Francisco theater. I wish the critic would say which dates it's coming to an East Bay theater. Thanks.
How on earth did Kevin Spacey, one of the best actors we have, get roped into this loser of a film? I was so excited to see it that I didn't even want to wait until it hit the East Bay and I traipsed across the bridge to the Embarcardero. I sat in anticipation for the whole couple of hours, waiting for the feeling that I was enjoying it. I never did. The movie never took off. No matter how well-done, there's just something off kilter about it, and not in a good way. It's hard to pinpoint the problem, or problems.
Terrible, terrible, utterly atrocious movie.
This is one of the worst pieces of trash I've ever seen. I've lost all confidence in Kelly Vance. It is unbelievable from start to finish and gets laughably worse over its unfortunately long running length. And it's violent, unncessarily. And we don't care about the characters. And there's no reason for its existence, either in the story or any sort of concept above that. It's simple trash and poorly done trash at that. On top of that the scenes that are supposed to be subtle (the original murder), meant to be nuanced (I guess), are simply confusing. For a better of review of this see the Chron or the CSM. It sucks bigtime.
nolan is overrated. memento is overrated. the dark knight is overrated.
that being said- leonardo is starting to look old. gonna have to start calling him leonard dicaprio. joseph gordon levitt was bad ass, and i now want to take ellen page out for ice cream. she was insufferable until i realized how sexy she is just now. juno is garbage, fyi.
but i digress. due to the success of inception we will be forced to suffer through more big budget unnecessarily self indulgent god awful rotten cinema. directed by that opiate for the masses of asses, nolan.
give me my money back. please.
Such a sad place to arrive at, just selling any soul left to new office uses, so sad to see this just turn into class a drivel.
I can't believe Oakland will loose this wonderful resource. Over the I years I've seen concerts, High School basketball and roller derby games and quarter midge auto races (my oldest sister was queen of the race in 1959). I love many of the change Oakland is currently experiencing. However, we need to preserve our history not throw it away.
"The other two-thirds of new office space built in the converted Kaiser Center auditorium side of the building will be rented at market rates as general commercial office space. Likely tenants include tech companies, attorneys, and similar professional firms."
...as was the plan from the start. When no (local) arts organizations come forward to rent the class A office space, as it was advertised, it will be 100% market rate and another public asset will be privatized. The function, legacy and soul will be lost forever...as was the plan from the start.
View-corridor obsessives like OHA, Naomi and James Vann lobbied against the alternate, convention preservation, new hotel tower option and this is what we're left with.
Is Darwin still gonna beat that "NIMBYs Dont Exist" drum now that even his allies worked so tirelessly to get us here?
@ Leif Bierer: You're *joking*, right?! Transferring--sale, sharing, etc--*any* quantity of weed--even passing a joint--to *anybody*, including those poor "disabled veterans" you're *all* about, is presently a *felony* outside of a medical collective/cooperative; after 64, sharing up to an ounce between any other adult is completely legal, and over an ounce is only a misdemeanor!
Seriously, you tools really ought to look this stuff up *before* you post it ... !
