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.
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: “Young Professionals Only? Housemates Accuse Landlord of Rejecting Subtenant Applications in Hopes of Vacating Rent-Controlled Unit.

I can see both sides of this story -- that of the tenants who just want to get a new roommate, and that of the landlord, who just wants to control her own property. Both points of view have merit, but I believe that a person who owns a building can and should have more rights to decide who they rent to, than other renters in the building. AFter all it's not the renters who are renting out the bedroom, it's the landlord doing so. And she should be perfectly free to accept or turn down as many renters as she wants, without having to give a reason why.

The way I view this, if a landlord rents to a group of people, then if one of those moves out, she shouldn't have to rent the vacant room to anyone at all. If she wants to just leave it vacant and ask the remaining renters to make up the difference, that is her perogative as building owner. Her business contract was with the original group, and she's not obligated to enter into a new contract with anyone. Once all the members of that group leave, she can consider renting to another group, but it doesn't seem fair to require her to rent to anyone new while any members of the current group are still in residence.

PEople can and will throw around the word "discrimination", but as I see it, all that is doing is allowing renters to say "we have more ownership rights to your building than you do as the owner of the building." No. I see a lot of such fights going on now -- regarding who really owns the building, the tenants or the landlord -- and I think we have to resolve this with common sense and say no, it's not the tenants.

Moral of the story -- if you want control over your housing, it's good to be an owner and not a renter. I support creating more opportunities for tenants-in-common arrangements so more people who are now renters, can become owners or partner-owners of a property.

by the way...anyone paying $400 or even $600 in monthly rent nowadays in the Bay Area, should count themselves lucky rather than contact the media to complain about their landlord.

Re: “East Bay Paratransit Bus System Leaves Drivers Broke and Riders Often Stranded

Sounds like a pretty typical outsourced, unsupervised operation. As public operations the Transit agencies that outsourced this need to be called to account for this and perhaps a revue of the contracts they've let to see if they were even plausible given the services to be provided.... And of course, as always, follow the money.

Who wants to make bets on investors in the French company?
