    The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)


    Painful to watch Noah trying so hard to become the American's Hong Sang Soo. This just like a TV movie, without any A E S T H E T I C.

    Kong: Skull Island


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

  • 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


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