    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★

    This is weird. It's a stupid but beautiful movie, which really understand how to make fun of its stupidity.

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★½

    Well-made in parts, this thrilling flick provides breathless chilling atmosphere in the 2nd act with some great directions. But unfortunately, the lack of writing skill downgrades the gray characters and the frustrating final act, makes the movie don't do full justice for its premise.

    Boyhood

    Boyhood is a pretentious bore.

    12 years in the making (always mentioned in the PR), but the film follows to a lifeless and boring main character that I forgot right after watching. Linklater tries to make it real with his direction, to make his audience identify with the characters, but I can't watch a movie about someone that I don't care about, to confirm my feelings, my boyhood. I'm familiar with slice-of-life drama, but Boyhood is so pretentious with clichéd dialogue to teach me some lessons about life. I don't need that gimmick.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    ★★½

    This sequel is a mess with many forced elements and pacing issues.
