Re: “Up in the Air

Wow, this movie is depressing...especially if you are unemployed, as I am. The movie doesn't seem to completely condemn the horrible line of work of the two protagonists. And it has a weird ambiguous ending. Has he learned something or not? Is he going to change his life?

Re: “Boyhood

Wow. I obviously missed something. I read all the glowing reviews and maybe my expectations were unrealistic. The concept is interesting and novel, but I can honestly say I can't remember being more bored. The kids just don't offer any charisma or acting ability.

Re: “Little White Lies

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.

Re: “Our Idiot Brother

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...

Re: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2: 3D

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...

Re: “Somewhere

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.

Re: “Casino Jack

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.

Re: “The Next Three Days

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.

Re: “Inception

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.

Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Win Prestigious George Polk Award For East Bay Express Series on Oakland Police Scandal

It's now February 20 at 11am pacific. I just visited the Polk awards web site. I see no announcements for 2017 and they don't seem to appear on the 2016 lists? What's up?

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Now I can gripe a bit by the headline and the first line of this report -- because the reporter wasn't kicked out -- the reporter's first paragraph is contradicted by "I then requested the judge to ask the man again if he'd be OK with me staying on those terms. The man seemed OK with this, but I got up and left the courtroom, anyway." (GRRRR). So this headline and article kinda stinks. Reporters - the truth is not such that the ends justifies the means. Don't trick me, especially with an outright lie.

HOWEVER, this whole "media is the enemy" thing really pisses me off! Trump tweeted about it on the same day that this article was posted -- so one didn't cause the other. But the press are our eyes and ears -- NOT OUR ENEMY. If the public can be there, the press can be there and if someone is made nervous by the press -- that's a sign.

Have you ever sat through a public court proceeding? No? Thank God, because it's dead dull boring. It's like watching paint dry. "Due process" is important but not exciting, and so it's easy for the public to bypass observing such public proceedings because we're comfortable with the assurance that someone else is likely watching and if anything urgent or outrageous happens, we'll be alerted by someone who has more time than we do.

Even though they're open to the public, most court proceedings are not even attended by reporters -- but the fact that they can attend is a check and balance to nefariousness such as shortcuts through our rights, deals that ought not be made, and other bad behavior.

Thank you, reporter, for doing OUR job. We need you. We're on your side. We really appreciate it. This weekend, I counted 5 different ways that I pay money for news. It's valuable to me and I don't get mine for free. But please don't funge up the facts. It doesn't help.

Re: “Oakland Tenants Say Eviction Notices on Rise After Ghost Ship, Call on City Hall For Moratorium

Am Sherri from Texas. i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Donard. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. 3 days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000 daily. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 in one week without any stress of being caught. I dont know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address donardmorrisworld27@gmail.com. And I believe they will also Change your Life. email: donardmorrisworld27@gmail.com
