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.
I second what Jan Van Dusen said.
Nice work Lacabe, very good.
Was directed to this story by USAToday, when they attributed facts to "alternative weekly newspaper East Bay Express" on the front page of the sports section last Friday. Isn't USAToday distributed nationally? Not too shabby.
It's about time someone took down one of these pie-throwing douchebags. That's the assault here. Johnson simply defended himself. For all he knew, this dumbass could've had a gun.
Shame on Oaktown! The City is already "profiting" from unlawful businesses (dispensaries) "selling" the controlled substance marijuana by "taxing" the illegal activities! Now they want 25% ownership too, I'd like to hear them explain to Uncle Sam and the IRS how a governmental entity can blatantly violate current state law and federal law! Can't anyone see what the hell is going on here in California? They'll put individuals and organization lives, assets and livelihoods at risk of potential prosecution just so they can "cash in on our use"! Our own lawmakers have turned the "Compassionate Use Act" upside down and made it the "Compensation from our Use Act"! Wake up cannabis community and smell what our local and state governments are cooking! California has created its own drug cartel from the grey area they created, if you can't beat the "black market" just form your own "grey market" and take over the industry with corporate and government greed!

I contacted his email address.And i told him everything that happened all he told me was i shouldn't worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after One hour my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happened i was very surprise and very, very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again.

He can use his HOLY spell to help you. his email again email@example.com and you can also call him +2349029587438 that is his Whats App number too THANKS..
A once fine department. Most of the good officers have fled the turd pile known as the city of Oakland.
I appreciate the value of your article, but have to take issue that Prime Gallery is named among artist collectives that "threw late-night events without attracting law-enforcement attention." They're characterized as this underground venue that was nurturing of a diverse community, and portrayed as victims of neighbors who watched them as though under a telescope.
This is a gross misrepresentation of this particular scene, which was comprised of teens and early 20 somethings that would leave shattered liquor bottles for blocks around. Kids from the parties would tag on residences, local businesses, and neighborhood murals. In less than a year, the small gatherings had escalated into weekly block parties that would prevent traffic from passing and would bring cops well into the morning hours. Neighbors confronted them several times, particularly after gun shots were fired.
It is true that eventually they were removed from the space. Tragically, this was not before their August eviction party culminated in the murders of two young men. Prime Gallery should not be portrayed as a loss to Oakland's art and music culture - it was an inevitable explosion that was not diffused in time.
Very nice and informative article here. I was searching for the same form some time ago and found a great service with a huge forms library. By the way, if anyone is facing a problem of filling FL 12.928, I've found a template here http://pdf.ac/2KTAwL. You also can esign the form and fax it.
So far, AB InBev hasn't messed up my favorite Goose Island brews since buying them in 2011.
