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!

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.

Man I'm glad my efforts led the University of California Berkeley to evacuate the grounds department from the Edwards Stadium on campus because the building will probably fall down in the big one.

Re: “The Big One: Scientists Say the East Bay is Overdue for the Largest Earthquake in Centuries. And We're Not Prepared.

The map does not show the fault running through the UC Berkeley stadium. It appears further west than I've seen on other maps. Is this an accurate depiction of the fault location.

Re: “The Big One: Scientists Say the East Bay is Overdue for the Largest Earthquake in Centuries. And We're Not Prepared.

The map of the Hayward Fault doesn't seem to be loading properly or is inaccurate. The fault generally follows Highway 13 and then along the backside of the Berkeley Campus, including, as mentioned, through Memorial Stadium. But the fault is pictured several miles away from all that.

Re: “Why Does the Berkeley City Council Care About a Dog Meat Festival in China?

There's a much more pressing problem in our own back yard: the Bay Area's many live animal food markets. California annually imports some TWO MILLION non-native American bullfrogs for human consumption (commercially-raised). Plus an additional 300,000 to 400,000 non-native freshwater turtles, all taken from the wild in states East of the Rockies, depleting local populations. These markets are common in Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento and Los Angeles, mostly in various "Chinatowns." Often illegally released into they wild, they prey upon and displace our native species.

Worse, the majority of the bullfrogs (60+ %) test positive for the dreaded chytrid fungus (Batrachrochytrium dendrobatidis, or Bd), which has caused the extinctions of 200+ species of frogs and other amphibians worldwide in recent years.

ALL of the market frogs & turtles are diseased and/or parasitized, though it is ILLEGAL to sell such products: E. coli, pasturella, salmonella, blood parasite, giardia, et al. Many of the animals are stacked four and five deep, often without food or water, and butchered while fully conscious.

Now THERE's an issue where the Berkeley and Oakland City Councils could REALLY make a difference. Follow the money.

Re: “City Forcing West Oakland’s Alliance Metals to Close on August 20, But Supporters Argue Recyclers Have No Safety Net

Let's march out the Elephant in the room here! The City of Oakland gets a huge "franchise fee" (estimated by some to be up to $25 million) from its granting of exclusive rights to companies for their collecting solid waste and recyclables. Such a fee cannot pertain to recycling companies (like Alliance) whose recyclables are not collected by them, but brought to them by individuals (whether in shopping carts or trucks). Oakland's "franchised" collectors charge their clients by volume, and every piece of recyclable material not being collected by them (but by others) cuts the revenue those franchised collectors can charge their clients. This also probably affects the revenue percentage based franchise fees collected by Oakland from their franchised collectors - reducing the city's revenues. The Alliance Recycling outdated website states it collected 15,600 Tons of recyclables in 2008. Imagine how much volume that 15.6 tons removed from the franchised collector's revenue streams, and how they must be complaining about that lost revenue to a city government that is also losing revenue from its reduced franchise fees as a result. The city of Oakland is squarely in bed with those big businesses it granted exclusive collection rights to. One look at the Alliance Recycling location on Peralta Street will confirm that street is packed with industries - it is nobody's idea of a residential or gentile neighborhood setting. Oakland has laws against the illegal collection of recyclables (such as raiding waste bins of such), so rather than expensively policing such violations, it chooses to shut down the recycling company. This is less about sidewalk blocking or nuisances and more about a conspiracy between Oakland and its franchised collectors to do what in anybody else's viewpoint would be the illegal restraint of trade. The elephant in the room here is holding a bundle of money in its trunk, and that money is headed straight for Oakland and its exclusive franchised collectors.
