I'm not really impressed. There are much better movies to see.

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.

I'm glad it wasn't any longer than it was.

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: “Going the Distance


It stunk up our house, did not see chemistry between Drew and Justin, raunchy seldom works...

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.

give me my money back. please.

Re: “The East Bay Still Has Some Very Visible Reminders of Our History of Racism

Did you know that as late as the early 70's there were active Klan chapters in Castro Valley? They were shutdown as fast as they were found too.

What exactly is EBX up to here? This type of reporting is SO erroneous as to fall into the category once called "yellow" journalism as practiced by Hearst "news" organization at the time of the Spanish American war ("Remember The Maine!")

Re: “One of Oakland's Most Historic Figures Was Also Horribly Racist

What in the name of whatever deity you follow is going on at EBX?!?!?

This article has clearly had ZERO fact checking and strongly reminds me a story reported at FOX news!

Re: “The Albany Cross Resurrects Memories of the KKK

Corrections:
1. The Albany Lions Club is suing the City of Albany itself and in addition several council members and staff.
2. The entire City Council unanimously declared the cross' presence on public land "inappropriate."
3. The cross does not "technically reside on a small patch of land granted to the Lions Club." The land is wholly owned by the City - the Lions have only an easement for access to maintain the cross. Easements only apply when another entity owns the property, otherwise an easement would be unnecessary.
4. The electrical wires were attached to a eucalyptus tree not simply run through them.
5. The 2010 Census data list Albany as 49.3% White(non-Hispanic) and 3.3% Black.
Comment: The Lions lawsuit states that the cross is "implicitly communicating traditional messages associated with the religious holidays and memorial of certain national events." It is a blind spot that the Lions are unable to recognize and acknowledge that the implied message of a large illuminated cross on public land is perceived very differently, and painfully, by many members of the community for many different reasons.

Re: “One of Oakland's Most Historic Figures Was Also Horribly Racist

Jack London wasn't perfect, but this is a terribly one-sided article. Jack London was raised the first years of his life by Jennie Prentiss, a black woman who had been born into slavery. She took him to church, the First African Methodist Episcopal church in Oakland, and he later donated a large sum to the church. Many of the newspaper articles he's slammed for are actually more balanced than the headlines (written by the newspaper editors) for them would suggest.
