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: “Best of the East Bay 2016: Shopping & Services Writers' Picks

You have to be a Berkeley resident to use the BPL Tool Library. If you live in Oakland, you can rely on the larger (5000 items) tool lending library at the Temescal Branch!

Re: “Oakland's Culture Clash

Wow. It has gotten bad there. I owed a home in West Oakland from 2005 to 2008. In 2004 the city of Oakland was supposed to help build a People's Co-op Grocery store where the old abandon train station is on Wood St. They didn't do this not because the funds weren't there or that they didn't have a location. The real and honest reason simply is that city officials don't care about the black community. If you live there or move there, help support community gardens, keep calling and writing to the city until they come through with their end of the bargain, and if you can help the schools out by offering to tutor kids that need it for free. It's been over ten years that the city was suppose to build the grocery store. It's time. And if you have a problem with music then don't live there. West Oakland historically was been one of the corner stones for jazz, blues, hip hop, you name it. There are several music studios in West Oakland. That neighborhood has been a black community for many generations and they deserve some respect and some nurturing.

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

Jamala Rahim you really need to stop. Looking at your social media page one would think you are still in high school. Just because you read some books and passed some tests doesn't make you smarter than anyone else. It certainly doesn't make you wiser. LaTonda has way more wisdom, character, excellent work ethic and moral values than you will ever have. That's why she was your manager. Kill the bitterness. Maybe you will move up from being the side chick which you consistently boast about on social media to a main chick.. Then you will have the attention you so desperately seek.

Thank you for including Richmond. I was getting increasingly annoyed in reading your other 2016 winners lists and not seeing the city we live in represented. The East Bay is much more than Oakland and Berkeley!

Re: “New Dating Site for Pot Users Has High Hopes

If you like you can me insane man for testifying and coming open to the public to glorify and rain praises upon the only one EXPERIENCED,ACCESSIBLE,TRUSTED AND MOST POWERFULLY spell caster called Ajayi Ololo for helping me use his reliable and sincere spell work to bring back to me my lovely wife after 8 months of separations. I and my wife had a misunderstanding that her family has to tell her to get a divorce which she did. Little did i know that she is really my wife and my woman. I know you reading this testimony will ask how did i know she is my woman and wife even after divorce. i get to know this because i always think of her anytime i find myself to be alone in the house and anytime i have that thinking i will always want to drink to forget about her, even with the drinks to clear her out of my brain the reflections of her beauty will always flash through my mind that i dont know what to do to get her back home. On thinking how to bring her back home for us to leave happily together and call off the divorce i went to marriage advisers and also register for how you need to get your broken marriage restored back. I spent two week on the seminar were we were always thought about the steps to take to restore a broken marriage back but to me it seems not to be helpful in anyway. my wife dont longer pick my calls and never wanted to see me again, and this was the woman that use to love,care,respect and adore me before. Her decision that resulted to our divorce was just a misup that could be easily be corrected after much apology to her that it will never repeat itself again. I know she getting to know that i was having affair outside our marriage is enough but my wife i use to know could not has gone so far even with the conviction of her family to do it. As for me i has a second a thought to know that there must be some enemies that must have been manipulating my wife against me and with that i need a help to rid of the enemy that could have entered her to make end our marriage even with much plead from my own side. on the point for searching and looking for help my mother said there is a man that she will refer me to help me. That it means am still in love with my wife since you are still thinking about her. On hearing this from my own mother helping me out on the adventure to get help to return back home my wife,i was so glad and happy. I felt so shock on the help she suggest that i should email (ajayiololo@yahoo.com) for help that he is a spell caster that i know for help and reliable work because it was this same spell caster that gave me drugs to be healed and cured of cancer and taken care off. not on till my lovely mother told me that spell casting is harmless but with the help of Ajayi Ololo that uses his spell casting to make your love realize and to kill and destroy any human begin involved on the process i never knew there is a man like Dr Ajayi Ololo that is been talked about all over the states and countries.

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

Whoever had the courage and vision to share this information with the press, I am grateful. Of course, the news about giving away public land made the city look bad. That's because their actions were illegal & reprehensible. Duh! How stunning that these elected officials have made so many promises to improve transparency at city hall & now they're desperate to find out who's been sharing their embarassing secrets. Perhaps they were talking about switching from waxed paper to clear plastic wrap for their lunches. I hope that in November & other future elections, Oakland voters will not just vote for their old friends again. We so need new officials who will be honest, trustworthy, ethical leaders.

Re: “Beyond Cap-and-Trade: Many Environmentalists Say California Will Improve Climate Policy If It Reduces Emissions at Source

The issues contained within the present concepts of offsets are just one part of the larger problems created by CO2 emissions.

No matter what the scale of emission reduction is, atmospheric CO2 concentration will not be reduced. Only return to Earth of mineralized carbon can do that. Sequestration of carbon dioxide by regrowth of forests and greater soil organic carbon content will quickly be balanced by ecological releases of CO2.

Interregional and international offsets and traded allowances have been prohibited in several places around the world, and I would endorse their application , especially in places like the Bay Area. National policies might cap total emissions, and distribute them to the county levels and take into account the offsets from a variety of actions in national control targets. But, locally concentrated generation of GHG and other pollutants must, in all justice, remain -or be taken- under control of the local stakeholders.

I work with "Associated Carbon Technologies, Inc" that advocates conversion of biomass to fuels and residual chars, with the mineralized chars returned to soils as "biochar", an agriculturally beneficial soil amendment, with potential financial benefit to the biomass producers and converters from the sale of 'permanent' sequestration offsets.
