Can I skip Naruto movies?

You don't need to watch any of the Naruto or Naruto Shippuden movies except "The Last" and "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" because those 2 are the only ones that are really part of the story. All the other movies don't really fit into the timeline because they are movies that aren't actually canon. In the case of the Boruto movie, you can skip it if you are going to continue the story in the Boruto anime.
