Why is Samuel L. Jackson so highly regarded?
 
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

Big Smokes 05-19-2012 04:51 PM

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's role in Jackie Brown was boss.

IrOnMaN 05-20-2012 07:41 AM

I've never seen Jackie Brown. I'm so late.

Mumm Ra 05-20-2012 08:13 AM

what kind of person doesnt like pulp fiction anyway, ive never met one

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

KERZO 05-20-2012 08:27 AM

yeah FMJ, I'd say One Eight Seven is probably one of his best performances.

Big Smokes 05-20-2012 09:05 AM

i person that neg rep me can go fuck themselves mad that someone doesnt agree with your opinion

main_man 05-20-2012 05:52 PM

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.

so why is he so highly regarded?
cause hes fucking great at what he does.

samuel l. jackson = offical wu corp legend status.

kurupt_kw 05-22-2012 01:48 PM

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