As twisted as it is, the NC-17 rated Killer Joe is one of the best films I’ve seen this year. One of the reasons why is the movie’s stellar cast, which includes Emile Hirsch as Chris Smith, a scummy drug addict who arranges the murder of his mother in order to get her life insurance.

Matthew McConaughey on ‘Killer Joe’: “I remember throwing the script in the trash and saying I don’t want to be any part of that world”
Those that know me well know that my all-time most hated movie is The Wedding Planner. I was stuck seeing that movie on two separate dates before I learned it’s perfectly acceptable to tell a girl “no, I’d prefer not to see a Jennifer Lopez movie.” As much as I dislike the movie, I hold no ire toward Lopez’s co-star Matthew McConaughey, although I never thought much of him as an actor because of his tendency to star in romantic comedies and awful action movies (though he is awesome in Dazed & Confused, one of my favorite films).
