#1 Having through the years, gone to movies made by these Hollywood dingbats, for their acting skills, to bring a story alive, for my entertainment, I willing paid money to so. Just can't do it anymore.
Samuel L Jackson is one of those... heck, he loved being in Star Wars.....
Not such in the last 3-4 years.... can't do it... haven't done it... and this comment just drives the nail deeper.

#2 Congressman James Clyburn, from South Carolina, also sees much promise in Michelle Obama.
Unfortunately, no one has seen much "promise" in dull-witted James.

#3 I've lost all respect for Mr. Jackson. He is a twit. A charismatic and talented twit, but a twit none the less.

He should only have to snap his fingers!

#5 Its really creepy to see a cult of personality in your own country, I thought the folks of the west were above that.

#6 Really? Germany is part of the West. France is part of the West.

#7 Talented, I can debate that. He has no range. Zero. Sammy Jackson has one character; he gets outside of that character, such as in Unbreakable, he stinks. In the jedi1-2-3, in what should have been an easy layup to stand out as a bright spot, he stunk. Think of a great quote from, well, what was his movie name? Damn near ruined Jackie Brown, and in fact Tarantino's success was Jackson's success. In fact, Bruce Willis' success (Die Hard 3) was SLJs success.
He gets loud and cusses unabashingly. Without the script and the director to capture that just right, you get snakes on a plane.

#8 Sam's hit or miss, mostly miss. Did like when he got shot in the head in Goodfellas though...

#9 Germany and France had their cult of personalities decades ago. US had Kennedy who was close, but also decades ago.

#10 OK. Put Moochelle in the same category as Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton. Egotistical women with warped, socialist ideas who think they're just as good as any man but never would have gotten anywhere without their husbands. None too good looking either.
Jackson is a weak man who gets all starry eyed whenever he meets a woman who has a little bit of power, whether she got it on her own or not. How pathetic.
