I'm watching Interstellar, can't understand a word he's saying. And those car commercials?
Wow this movie is truly terrible. I guess it would help if something as important as the dialogue of the main character was intelligible or at least had subtitles.
too much weed.
He is not real, and neither are any of you. You are all products of my imagination: solipsism.
He truly is strange.
I've turned it into a drinking game: every intelligible word I take a shot of very expensive scotch. 40 minutes in I'm stone cold sober....
Maybe you need to be stoned to understand him?
Wow, this is unfortunate. This is a movie I wanted to watch. I'm not a
McConaughey fan. He and Owen Wilson just seem like dufuses in every
movie they're in, except for the Dallas social club or whatever that Matthew
was in. If it comes up cheap, or free, I'll check it out.
I'll admit he's an acquired taste but I like him. He doesn't take himself too seriously. I haven't watched Interstellar yet so I might change my opinion (probably not).
Full disclosure, I go to Vulcan sometimes.
i thought interstellar was amazing
That was fun!
I like him and quite liked Interstellar. It seems to be a pretty polarizing movie. It got nearly excellent reviews, both critically and from viewers, but I know two people who are very smart and who have opinions that I respect that said it was among their least favorite sci-fi movies they've ever seen. Neither group is wrong.
As to the man himself, he seems like a pretty cool guy. Might not have been my first choice but I figured he was just jealous of being a tag-along in Contact and wanted to try his own long-distance time travel gig himself to see what all the fuss was.
Not sure WTF those Lincoln commercials are all about other than money in his pocket, but I think he's had a pretty good run since about 2010 or 2011. Interstellar, The Lincoln Lawyer, Dallas Buyers Club, Wolf of Wall Street, Killer Joe, Mud, Magic Mike, The Paperboy, Bernie...
One movie staring him that I was never sure if it was exceptional or awful was Frailty.
Interstellar had a lot going for it; fantastic visuals that draw you in (unlike bad CGI causing an emotional disconnect,) a lot of "what if" philosophical questions that are fun to ponder, a VERY amusing robot/A.I., and some cool physics theories brought to life visually.
I would much, MUCH rather have movies like this being made instead of The Fast and The Furious XV.
Matthew Mconaughey exudes a very narcissistic, overconfident persona in most of his films--kind of how Kevin Costner is always.............well, Kevin Costner AS, insert role here: "ball player", "post apocalyptic anti-hero", "coach", etc. You usually get Matthew McConaughey AS, whatever character, with a heavy dose of his persona.
I think he turned in a very uneven performance in Interstellar. Some roles benefit from his sort of swagger, but in Interstellar he portrayed his character as narcissistic, detached, over-emotional, redneck, hot-shot pilot, highly trained mitary guy,, idiot, martyr, comedian.....but NOT like a real person experiencing life changes might adapt to circumstances, but more like he didn't have a clear idea of WHO or WHAT he wanted his character to be.
Despite that, the film IS worthy of seeing, I think.
Whats up with his refusal to wear deodorant?
I haven't seen Frailty, but have heard its a polarizing film too.
I'll have to check it out!
Now if you WANT to break your TV after watching a movie, check out the Astronauts Wife. Johnny Depp gives an amazing performance, but the last five minutes or so might have ticked me off more than anything I have ever seen.
I won't give away the ending just in case someone doesn't believe me, and watches it to see what I'm talking about....
Again... True Detective!
