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!

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.

Re: “Berkeley's Special City Council Election Zeroes In On Housing, Homelessness Issues

Ben Gould has no experience but school and is in his early twenties. Kate Harrison has worked in government for at least twenty years. She is also invited as a consultant around the world as governments try to improve their system of governance. Kate managed the SF entire court system for years.

This kid, Ben, tells completely different speeches depending on his audience. He's a classic flip flopper: he says progressive things to progressive audience and conservative things to real estate interests.

We need honesty and ingegrity. Kate has it and Ben's wildly divergent campaign speeches suggests he'll say anything to win, which indicates a lack of integrity.

Interesting that you only have his campaign donations through 2016. He is said to be raking in real estate money and he has been seen meeting with Tom Bates, our finally-gone bad mayor.

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

Let's face facts. I knew Biff's as a kid long, long ago. Even then it was kind of seedy and run down. By the time it shut down in '96, it was more than tired.

Euphoric recall is wonderful, but it's also a fantasy... Today being driven by what I think of as carpet baggers... People who came here long after the glory days of the east bay, ignoring the blight that it became and to an extent still suffers from... Boarded building, out of control city administration and rampant crime in the streets.

I don't see anyone complaining about the loss of the Merritt Bakery. It was open 7/24 had great inexpensive food... and tended to catch fire from time to time.

It's time to rebuild Oakland, not worship a long gone past.

Re: “NBC Paid for Ghost Ship Operator Derick Almena's Hotel Room During Exclusive Interview

What the fuck, Charles C. Eroster?! Who the fuck do you think you are? You obviously have absolutely no fucking idea what you are talking about and it is people like you who would (and did) elect a white supremacist fascist to reign over the FREE states of America and kill all hope for anyone other than idiot middle class white men to live peacefully and happily in the country that promised them "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." You are the disgusting storm cloud that robs all the sunlight and beauty from the world and I hope that your life is doomed to mediocrity and you die knowing that you did this whole thing called life completely wrong.
