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.

I'm glad it wasn't any longer than it was.

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: “General Electric Plans To Demolish East Oakland Factory. But Residents Want More Than A Polluted, Vacant Lot

There is no question that this historically significant building should not be demolished. A concrete cap as a solution to site contamination is a 50 year old, cheap fix that should not be an option in this case. If any company in America has the resources to save the building and clean up the site, it is General Electric. In addition, the potential importance of this building's retention to a long neglected neighborhood is also significant. Given new investment by AC Transit of the BRT project along International Blvd, adaptive reuse of this iconic building is a rare opportunity. Beyond that, I am confused by the City process and question why this is before the Planning Commission without any replacement project to consider. In order to demolish the building, I believe that local codes require that the replacement use of the site is a factor to be considered prior to issuance of a demolition permit. Beyond that, demolition of this important building would be a significant impact under CEQA. In order to approve the EIR, the city will need to adopt an SOC (Statement of Overriding Consideration). In order to adopt the SOC, the city will need to find that the public benefit of approving the "project" (demolition of the building) outweighs the benefit of retaining the resource. I don't know how you can make that finding without evaluating some reuse of the site. Without a replacement project to consider, the city and GE would be open to legal challenge of the environmental document.

Re: “Home Decorating for the Transient

As a house owner, I would like to give a complete focus on the home decoration part first, therefore, I would like to take the help of interior designers, taking suggestions from different sources, following different instructions and many others. Apart from home interior, we should also focus on the exteriors such as; quality doors and windows, backyard, walls and many others. The best part we should learn that how to save space, so we used to take some valuable lesson from this article. Thanks for this wonderful sharing.
