Top 3 Films: Matthew McConaughey

Happy 41st Matthew!

A Time to Kill (1996)

This film, directed by Joel Schumacher, is based on a John Grisham novel about a father that murders his daughter's rapists.

Matthew stars as defense attorney Jake Brigance. Also starring in this film are Sandra Bullock as a law student, Samuel L Jackson as Carl Lee Hailey (the father), Kevin Spacey as the prosecuting attorney, Oliver Platt, Charles S Dutton, Ashley Judd, Keifer Sutherland, and Donald Sutherland.

Reign of Fire (2002)

I love this film. It is set in the distant future in London, in a time where dragons rule the world.

Besides Matthew, who stars as the American Denton Van Zan, it also stars Christian Bale and Gerard Butler.

There should be a sequel to this film.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)

Not really usually into these type of movies but this one was pretty good.

Matthew co-stars with Kate Hudson in this film.

It was directed by Donald Petrie who is the same guy that directed Mystic Pizza, Grumpy Old Men, Miss Congeniality and Welcome to Mooseport.


  1. I really like McConaughey. Did you see Ghost from Girldfriends Past (at least I think that was the name of the movie)? It was really good. He was fantastic in Contact as well.

  2. Yeah, I did see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. I totally forgot about that one. It might have bumped How to Lose a Guy off the list.
