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.
here's an idea, why not have ohlone college charge parking on weekends for mission peak visitors?
Another important data point that EBRPD needs to consider is that mission peak has the highest density of nesting eagles. See excerpt below from
Joe DiDonato spent part of the late 1980s in a cabin in the Ohlone Wilderness, surveying eagles. He recalls that his estimate of more than 20 nests between Mission Peak and Del Valle was met with incredulity. But later surveys by biologists Grainger and Teresa Hunt, who did extensive trapping, banding, and radio-telemetry, confirmed that number. “We have the highest density of nesting golden eagles anywhere in the world,” DiDonato says. In part that’s due to a bountiful prey base, primarily ground squirrels. A resurvey by the Hunts in 2005 found that all 58 territories documented in 2000 were still occupied. Most local goldens, sensitive to human disturbance, nest in remote places.
Trickle down politics
So, pipelines and selfies are perfectly appropriate reasons to destroy Native culture in the 21st century?
Do you know what makes this more infuriating? The Ohlone College entrance to Mission Peak is always empty on the weekends and has spots for hundreds of visitors. More than enough to accommodate the demand.
Mr Saijan, there used to be plenty of parking on the streets, but it is now mostly restricted to residential permit holders on the weekend. Perhaps the City should open Weibel Dr and then the parking lot may be reconsidered. Firebert, you can use the trails you prefer --it seems you don't like Mission Peak, but that doesn't mean others share your tastes. Please also explain what pictures are acceptable; it may be possible to get rules added to ordinance 38 and to hell with the First Amendment.
I'd like to use Vargas Plateau instead if driving out of my neighborhood to use Mission Peak, but the park district failed to convince a judge that they completed work as per a 2012 lawsuit settlement. Nevertheless, the plaintiffs offered to allow the park to open with the lower access points while the remaining issues were litigated. The Park District considers this favoritism even though anyone can park on the adjacent streets and use these access points. Somehow the EBRPD funding permit parking is not? The EBRPD has some pretty twisted logic. I'm convinced, after waiting more than 10 years for Vargas Plateau, that the District's senior staff prefers land museums and litigation over park access.
The obvious is now undeniable: neither the Mayor nor her appointed sycophants have any control. Oakland deserves, and desperately needs, a civilian police commission unfettered by OPD or the corner office at City Hall. Vote!
This is what happens when basic bitches flock to a hill to take selfies in front of a stick. There are tons of better hiking trails in the bay area with better vistas. It's a fad trail and it will die soon
A. How was this a conspiracy? B. Since when are OPD officers prosecuted for taking part in conspiracies? No officers were prosecuted for conspiring to extort thousands of dollars from downtown club owners during the Dellums administration. (OPD deliberately overscheduled and then sent officers them home, charging the club owner for the officers who were sent home.) OPD officer(s) testified to this conspiracy in depositions when one of the club owners sued (OPD shakedown put club out of business).
