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: “Jerry Brown's Cap-and-Trade Program Isn't Working

From the Environmental Defense Fund Blog
By Erica Morehouse and Katelyn Roedner Sutter

California and Quebec released results today for the November 2017 auction which showed steady prices well above the floor for the second auction in a row. The November auction was also the second in a row to sell out of allowances. Both outcomes are a reflection of the secure market that is now set to run through 2030, and demonstrate that the design features of cap and trade are working as expected to maintain a strong and stable program.

November Auction At-a-Glance

Approximately $862,407,989 raised for the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to invest in a number of programs including clean transportation, urban greening, and improving local air quality.

All current vintage allowances were sold of the 79,548,286 offered for sale, including 15,909,657 allowances that were previously unsold in 2016. This is the first auction including held allowances.

Current vintage allowances sold at $15.06, $1.49 above the $13.57 floor price. This is 31 cents higher than the August clearing price.

All future vintage allowances sold of the 9,723,500 offered for sale. These allowances will not be available for compliance use until 2020. For the second auction in a row, future vintage allowances sold out above the floor price, showing strong confidence in the cap-and-trade program after 2020.

Re: “Get Away and Spread Some Cheer

When all the "you must go there" types have gone elsewhere, peace and quiet returns to my neighborhood. Its true beauty reemerges.

Then I find I have gotten away from what is most annoying and irritating about contemporary urban life: the presence of all those fast lane travelers obeying orders to hit the road.

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

I apologize for not making my comment clear Eric Sisneros.

I do not mean to be critical or disrespectful of anyone as individuals, as entrepenures or as millennials. The owner's model of cafe as community meeting spot is great. I live nearby and walk/drive by FV and E27 a dozen times a day for 25 years. My comment doesnt come from judging intent. Im an old head. It comes from my own experience and observations. Too often community is raised against things and nothing more. Ive seen it neighborhood watch groups before. By opening their space to groups, the owners take on a responsibility. Who uses the space and to what ends. Man, stuff is changing so F- ing fast we have grey areas that require extra thought and sensitivity to navigate. People with good intentions need to be especially mindful in order to stay true to those intentions. Its humbling and hard.

BTW anyone old enough to open their own joint aint 'youth', they are the adult citizenry making It happen! i wish them all the best.
