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: “How Serious is the Wild Fire Threat in the Oakland Hills?

It seems incredible to me that a committee made up of appointed-by- city- council residents of the Wildfire District pretends that it knows more about fire prevention than the experienced, highly trained professionals who make up the OFD. The WPAD board in the past has attempted to execute its own "fire prevention"agenda, which, with the exception of the goat herding contracts, has little or nothing to do with fire safety. Many of the people in the Wildfire District do not even realize that the WPAD had nothing to do with private property. The goat contracts, and anything else that the WPAD managed to do, involved only city-owned, public property--so why should the owners of private property be expected to pay an additional tax for a service that should come from the OFD budget or from the general fund? Maintaining fire safety in public parks and other public spaces that all Oakland residents use should not be paid for only by the property owners in the hills. The Mayor, the City Council, and the OFD should be responsible for fire safety (both fire prevention and fire suppression), not a board of biased citizens who have dared in the past to attempt to advise the OFD on its policies, and how to spend its money.

Re: “How Serious is the Wild Fire Threat in the Oakland Hills?

Hills residents have shown they are willing to pay for extra fire prevention services and will do so again when it's clear that the extra funds would be used effectively. For at least 9 years, OFD has been short-sighted about all fire prevention work. It took the tragic Ghost Ship disaster to expose the ridiculous lack of inspection services in Oakland and wake OFD up to their responsibility to inspect commercial properties. The 2017-2019 budget process being done now is adding at least a dozen fire inspectors, which is a good start, but is only designating one or two of those full-time positions for the vegetation management and wildfire prevention staff, where 3-4 would be more appropriate for our large city. Not until the vegetation management plan for Oakland's Open Space properties is completed and data entry systems are updated to enable City departments to coordinate their efforts better, can a new hills fire prevention taxation district move forward. I'm not convinced yet that the fire prevention efforts will have a high enough priority within OFD. Time will tell, but I am more hopeful that the next Hills wildfire prevention district will be more popular and effective than the one that just ended.
