A Few Of The Greatest Acting Performances From The Prolific Film Star, Samuel L. Jackson

By Craig Waters

Any time a discussion comes up about actors who seem to appear in every movie, one person that always jumps into my mind is of course, Samuel L. Jackson. When's the last time you saw a movie that didn't have him in it? The guy is all over the place! Not that this is a bad thing; I actually appreciate Mr. Jackson and his extremely dedicated work ethic.

While everyone has their opinion on the actor, this article will cite my favorite roles that Samuel L. Jackson has played.

The first movie I will discuss is one of the obvious choices, and it is none other than Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino movies do not get better than this 1994 cult classic and it is truly amazing it did not win best picture. That's what happens when you get released in the same year as Forrest Gump and The Shawshank Redemption.

Another movie of his that is definitely worth seeing is Snakes On A Plane. Ok, so maybe it is not definitely worth seeing, but if you appreciate over the top ridiculous plot lines, it does not get any better than this. I'm not sure why this movie was so enjoyable, but it was.

One movie in which Samuel L. Jackson starred that I thoroughly enjoyed was Basic. This psychological military thriller also stars John Travolta and has so many twists, it is almost ridiculous. If you like movies with twists, it is definitely worth seeing. Don't worry I promise I didn't ruin anything for you.

If you have not seen Unbreakable, then you are missing out on one of the better M. Night Shyamalan films out there. Samuel L. Jackson stars as Elijah Price, a mentor of sorts to a man that figures out he has supernatural abilities.

One other film that needs to be included on this list is Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith. Samuel L. Jackson was awesome in the Star Wars saga and while episodes I and II were lackluster, episode III pulled out all the stops.

Hopefully there are one or more films from the great Samuel L. Jackson on this list that you have yet to see.
