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.

Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

A lot of folks complain that undocumented workers have broken the law. Have you ever considered that slaves in the pre-Civil War South broke the law when they set foot off the plantation? Or that the Surpreme Court ruled that no black person was a citizen, North or South, and could never BE one? The law was immoral then, and it is immoral now. If we benefit from the sweat of another human being's brow, then we must repay him or her. People who pick our crops and hoe our fields and tend our children are being hunted down on our streets and cities and farms. This must stop. Undocumented workers cannot change the laws but We the PEOPLE can, and it is our responsibility as decent people to do so.

Re: “Biff’s Coffee Shop In Oakland Was Googie Glory

We can continue to build nice tall, generic buildings if that's what people really want, but a restored Biff's would have been a hit with the new Millenials as architect Roy notes. We've seen a resurgience in bowling at the Plank, and restored Kwik Way/.Merritt, which someone will probably try to raze again soon. That leaves the classic Alley on Grand which has become a hit with Millenials despite it's run down state. And that's exactly what pepole want; not another expensive skyscraper. Oakland has had a rebirth of modern ,, trendy restaurants , which is great , but lets not let the town loses its old soul. Thank god for the Paraount and Fox theaters https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=7299998174811532615#editor/target=post;postID=4427836600293029248;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=link

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

Jim Mzt, in this case the public is allowed. Reporters are specifically targeted for removal, even though they "obey the policies or laws that the public must obey." So what justifies removing the reporters?

Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

These protestors should follow the immigration law. If they are not legal residents they have to leave that is the law. The Sheriff Department is doing it's job correctly. UI applaud them for that.

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

We need to make some changes to the so called rights of the press. They should have to obey the policies or laws that the public must obey. They don't get a free pass to anything only to what that are allowed.
