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.

give me my money back. please.

Re: “Public Defender Says Arraignments at New Alameda County Courthouse in Dublin Denies Access to Courts for Low-Income People-of-Color

Although I can see both sides to this conversation, what I find missing from the discussion is the fact that the new Dublin location is more convenient for the Judges, lawyers, court clerks and Sheriff department staff. I would suggest that those are the people who live in Pleasanton, Dublin,San Ramon, Dublin, Livermore and even the central valley.Those are the folks whose commutes disappear altogether or become demonstrably shorter with the opening of a Dublin court facility. I find it hard to believe that the inmates are the ones upset because they have to get up at 3 a.m. and go on a bus ride to Oakland or Hayward. It is probably a welcome relief to the monotony of incarceration. It seems unfair that if the majority of those arrested and the majority county population is more centralized, that all of the arraignments should happen in Dublin. The only city in the county farther east than Dublin is Livermore. Although Dublin is serviced by BART, the station is not convenient to the courthouse and public bus transit in this suburban city is not a dependable alternative. At least the county should consider having the workload split with the Hayward courthouse to give inmate families a chance to show support. The criminal justice system is already stacked against poor black and brown people. This just seems like piling on.

Re: “Naming Names: These Officers Are Responsible for the Failed Oakland Police Sex Scandal Investigation

Huge hole in your Reporting!!!
The following passage was cut and pasted directly out of the Swanson report, it clearly states the City Attorney herself knew "In November 2015", yet no where in your reporting do you ask "why didn't Parker tell the DA, Mayor, Monitor, or Administrator in the 6 months? please answer or investigate this key dangling mystery.

Swanson Report
"In November 2015, the City Attorney herself raised concerns with Chief Whent that the alleged officer sexual misconduct regarding Ms. Abuslin might be part of a larger culture of tolerance for sexual misconduct within the Department. Chief Whent disagreed and suggested the larger problem had to do with drinking and rookie recruitment. Despite having this conversation with the City Attorney, Chief Whent still did not inform the Mayor, the City Administrator, or the Monitor of the sexual misconduct allegations."
