Not so very long ago, Matthew McConaughey appeared doomed to join the Hollywood scrap heap of handsome guys who just don't have a reliable knack for picking the right script, but these days, it seems like everything he touches turns to cinematic gold -- and with a starring role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar looming on this weekend's horizon, McConaughey's recent hot streak seems safe for at least another blockbuster.

Critics Consensus: Paul Is Sweet Sci-Fi Fun
This week at the movies, we've got a close encounter (Paul, starring Simon Pegg and Seth Rogen); a perfect drug (Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro); and some rough justice (The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei). What do the critics have to say? Simon Pegg's filmography is littered with expert genre parodies (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and director Greg Mottola is known for mixing big laughs with poignancy and intelligence. And although their new effort, Paul, may not live up to their previous work, critics say it's an amiable, sweet road comedy that smartly sends up sci-fi references.

RT was fortunate enough to chat with Phillippe about his Five Favorite Films, as well as his fortuitous introduction to the film industry and what it was like to work with legendary directors like Clint Eastwood and Robert Altman.
