I never cared for dude and I think he's highly overrated. Cheadle doesnt have his body of work but is a better in my opinion.

The only movie by Samuel L. Jackson i ever cared for was A TME TO KILL

Outside of Pulp Fiction (which i dont care for) what good movies has he had a leading role and shined in?

hes not the same kind of actor as cheadle, who is a black nerd and great actor.

SLJ has charisma and a certain undefinably cool style, his acting is effortless but also you don't see him doing a lotof deep or subtle roles.

some of his great iconic roles:
pulp fiction
jackie brown
avengers
afro samurai
boondocks
star wars
shaft (fuck that he was good in this)
do the right thing
other guys lol

See the movie "187" with Samuel. Beautiful performance and the ending is so full of emotion.

You should think more than you do now of him after seeing it. Also see "Against the wall", which is based on a true story, neva tha less good acting.

sam jackson is one of the few actors id go see a movie for just because he's in it - like that lakeview terrace movie

smokes must be british or something. def not american.

187 he deserved a fucking oscar nom for that role. great performance.

ordell robbie was a great character made even greater by the great sam jackson.

and jules whitfield is one of the greatest characters in ANY gangster film. if anything, he deserves lifelong props for that shit alone.

I have to add Black Snake Moan to the list of his great performances. Great acting from both him and Christina Ricci.

Bridget Fonda was looking good in Jackie Brown. Samuel is a better actor than Don Cheadle. Samuel's movies are better than Don's movies. Only movies of Don's i like is Traitor and Brooklyn's Finest. I like Samuel's Shaft, Jackie Brown, Do The Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Lakeview Terrace, Kiss Of Death, Soul Men movies. I wish he would do more action films because i think he would be good at playing a cop. I really liked Shaft even though Jeffrey Wright's character was better than his. 187 is a good movie but it's not one of my favorites by him. LOL@Samuel whipping Spike Lee's ass bad in Mo Better Blues hahahahahahahahaha. He hit Denzel Washington in the mouth with a trumpet in Mo Better Blues. I like how Samuel always gets angry in most of his movies hahahahahahahaha.

threadstarter hasn't seen "the sunset limited" (neither has 2pac hologram, since he said samuel can't do deep roles...also see "jungle fever")

"jackie brown" was boss, that was one of his best roles, he was a cool gangster and a fully realized character, he assumed a whole different walk and body language.

shut up.

Don Cheadle is the man. I was watching Traitor the other day. The movie where he's a counselor is pretty dope too. I forget the name of that one though.

Samuel L. Jackson is a respectable actor too. Anyone seen Black Snake Moan? Lol, that movie was bugged out. Snakes on a motherfucking plane!

I just saw 2 new straight to video movies with Samuel called Meeting Evil and The Samaritan. Both are good. He has a new movie with Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington(he also did Lakeview Terrace with her)that Quentin Tarantino directed. I saw the previews and i think it's coming out next month but i don't wanna see it.

'The Negotiator' is decent and hasn't been mention.

The Samaritan was somewhat terrible.

Outside of Pulp Fiction (which i dont care for) what good movies has he had a leading role and shined in?

I think it's mainly because he seems to Be himself a lot in the roles he plays Which not a lot of people can do. It's either that or he's just awesome because Of all the times he says motherfucker in 90% of the parts he plays. Nobody says motherfucker And sounds cooler quite like Samuel L Jackson says motherfucker
