    Default 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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
