A bad stretch since winning the Oscar.

He did do Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective and Interstellar after his Oscar win. All of those are great films.

Let's see after that

The Sea of Trees (2015)- Stinker from all concerned. One of Van Sant's worse films.
Free State of Jones (2016)- Good film, a bit underrated imo.
Kubo and the five strings (2016)- Great
Sing (2016)- Fun kids film
Gold (2016)- Passable at best.
The Dark Tower (2017)- How Sony studio messed up one of Stephen Kings best books I never know. McConaughey was Miscast.
White Boy Rick (2018)- Not bad, should have been a lot better for how great subject matter is.

The Sea of Trees and The Dark Tower were awful. But his best film in that run was Kubo and he's only using his voice in that.

He was great in True Detective.

reply

Definitely the best thing he's done even more so then his Oscar winning role. Just perfection.

reply

He got the Oscar after True Detective. But yeah his rebirth is over.

reply

But the role was before True Detective. It was over once he won the Oscar, the rebirth was complete. it hasn't been a disaster for him but his touch has deserted him.But he's getting paid well so good for him.

reply

Oh my mistake. Maybe he should stop swinging for fences and take a few years off.

reply

All of those 3 movies/show was done shooting before he won his Oscar.

McCounaghey has always had a terrible career, aside from his initial hot streak and later Academy Award win.

The guy has no quality control on the films that he takes.

You're forgetting those Lincoln commercials.

reply

That’s what I said go back to your Lincoln commercials. I like him so much wish he was in better movies.
