In The Dark Tower, Idris Elba plays a gunslinger named Roland Deschain, a man who roams an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the ‘man in black’ (Matthew McConaughey). Deschain is also searching for the fabled Dark Tower in hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world…
The plot of The Dark Tower is certainly unlike any Stephen King story I’m familiar with and that’s reason enough for me to watch. There’s also the names Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba to convince me further. I really want this to be good; toes, fingers and everything crossed.
Katheryn Winnick, Tom Taylor, Nikolaj Arcel, Abbey Lee and Claudia Kim also star.
Inspired by a true story, Gold, the latest movie starring Matthew McConaughey, Edgar Ramirez and Bryce Dallas Howard is all about one man’s challenging American dream.
A dream of find gold and the even more difficult task of keeping it once he lucks out and does…
Directed by Stephen Gaghan, I’ll be watching to see McConaughey in yet another new light. I also want to know precisely all the ways that people are going to ‘come for’ his character; that is once they get the distinct whiff of billions and billions of dollars. The phrase more money, more problems is so very fitting in this case.
The Sea Of Trees stars Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts and Katie Aselton. It’s also the Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting 1997, Milk 2008) directed movie that was famously booed at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival…
Based on this trailer, I’d never have guessed that the movie is likely to be bad. All I’m sure of at this point, considering that love, grief and suicide are key themes is that a laugh a minute is unlikely to be words used to describe anyone’s experience of The Sea Of Trees.
My true reaction before realising that this is the movie that was booed was: ‘Yeah! Another Matthew McConaughey movie and it stars ken Watanabe too; an actor whose face I’ll always be glad to see because of the great work he did in one of my all time favourites, Inception (2010)’.
I think I’m going to give this movie a chance. I’m not promising that I’ll definitely make it to the very end, but I feel I must at least try.
