    Yurigokoro

    ★½

    The first act is very cringey, but it's getting better with the help of acting & chemistry of Yuriko Yoshitaka & Kenichi Matsuyama. Has some good scenes, but messy overall.

    Double Mints

    ★★★½

    The characters are somehow not fully described, but the vision of the director is really interesting for a compelling story. That peach-eating alone deserves some recognitions.

    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.
