Nolan should just retire at this point. Squandered all the promise of Memento/The Prestige to make these low-brow big budget blockbusters for pimply faced teenage boys. I hope I'm wrong and his next film isn't as idiotic as Inception. Not holding my breath....and ohh how right you were Cronenberg!!!!

I'm assuming you haven't watched Inception or his Batman films. He's given those films depth, subtext, and nuance. Either they went over your head, or you weren't paying attention. He got bigger budgets that have allowed him to make bigger films, but that doesn't mean that they are low brow blockbusters.

He's got a bit of a point though. Even if its a bit.

I don't agree with him, but pretty sure the line "I hope I'm wrong and his next film isn't as idiotic as Inception" means he did see Inception.

Interesting choice... I'm sure Nolan will make it work though.

Really? After The Lincoln Lawyer, Bernie, Killer Joe, Magic Mike, and Mud, we're still doubting this guy? He's also in the next Scorsese film. McConaughey's a serious actor now and being cast in a top shelf director's film shouldn't surprise us anymore.

This is one of those great mysteries to me, everybody tells me Matthew McConaughey has suddenly become this transcendent actor. I still see the same guy I've always seen, in fact I prefer him in say A Time to Kill over The Lincoln Lawyer and definately Contact over Magic Mike where IMO his greatest contributions seemed to be taking his shirt off and simulating dry humping Alex Pettyfer. It was a fine movie with an interesting story, but for me being the best actor in a movie with Pettyfer, Tatum, Joe Mangienello and Diesel from WWE isn't the Herculean feat everyone seems to be making out. Acting just wasn't that movies strength. I'll grant you Killer Joe was good, but again for me it wasn't nearly as good as Kevin Costner in Mr. Brooks and no one is hyping him like Matt Mc.

I don't think he's suddenly become a transcendent actor, but I think he squandered is talent for years on paychecks for crappy romantic comedies. He's always been talented, he's just not returning to movies of more substance that he doesn't merely walk through. He's actually acting again.

You guys are all forgetting Frailty. He was hauntingly "normal" in that movie.

He hasn't really done THAT many rom-coms. How to Lose a Guy, Failure to Launch and The Wedding Planner are the only three I can recall. It's just that they were popular and he got slapped with that label. Personally I'm looking forward to seeing him in Wolf of Wall Street.
