Boyhood is overrated because one other film did it before?

Ummm okay.

boyhood is overrated because the story isn't anything special and aside from a boy growing up there isn't all that much in terms of an actual story. the fact that it was done before is just to show that it isn't some amazing first time cinematic feat.

The fact that it was only done one other time still showcases that regardless of the fact that it wasn't the first one to ever do it.

Sounds kind of hipstery to be like "yeah, well it wasn't the first and being second is just being a poser."

As an actual film it still holds it's own regardless of the fact that it took 12 years. I get it that you don't like it but it's far from overrated.
