    The Batman

    ★★½

    Chock-full of interesting ideas, just never develops any of them. We all know billionaires are bad people. Bruce has one brief scene to accept that, and then its undermined and forgotten about in the next scene. Also, MASSIVE waste of Paul Dano and Zoë Kravitz.

    A Batman film that is more mystery than action flick is a great idea. Except the mystery is so easy to solve that viewers are way ahead of Batman and Commissioner Gordon.

    And what an obnoxious, monotonous score. Is the Schubert Ave Maria the only religious piece anyone involved with the film knew?

    The first time I thought a man was sexually attractive was in high school. I buried that emotion as…

    Boyhood

    ★★

    I'm this far behind (two weeks) logging films at Letterboxd, because of Boyhood. I've spent over a week reading positive and negative reviews, trying to pinpoint exactly why the film failed to completely work for me. I liked parts of it - mostly the parts when Mason was a child; but as a whole the film failed to engage me, and I never cared about any of the characters.

    Naturally, I am surprised at my lack of enthusiasm for Boyhood,…
