Oh my god. That sounds beyond comically bad. :))

I think he went to the Christopher Walken School of Career Management. And he got an A in Mighty Big Paychecks 101.
Michael Caine went there, too!
I'm goin' to Snakes on a Plane, no doubt.
And, yeah, Christina Ricci's in it. But her career's been dotted with stinkers, too.

This movie may have been made. I caught a martial arts flick on late night TV years ago and never got the title. I'm under the impression that it was made in the 70's. Where I tuned in a black guy was ship-wrecked on an island (I guess) with two or three Japanese war refugees that are just hangin' there. For whatever reason they teach him the art of the sword. He is rescued and goes after his enemies.
Does anyone know what this is? IMDB is no help. I can't find it with Google.
There's really no point anymore, is there? In the end, I died like a bitch.
Hey, all Samuel asked was that he not go out like a punk. Going out like a bitch? That's a whole different kettle of fish.
Perhaps he is choosing these roles because he isn't taking this all too seriously. Maybe we look at a film plot and groan, wondering what happened to his sense of artistic standards. He may look at it with the following equation:
me + (most likely) hot nymphomaniac = fun
Can't argue with that logic ;)
Amen. And I don't think he went out like a bitch anyway. If it had been Mace vs. Anakin, the bad muthafucka would have wiped the floors with that whiny punk. If it had been Mace vs. Palpatine, same net result, sans the whining (and more electricity). But Mace vs. both of them? He's going to die.
First there was "Snakes on a Plane." That's in post-production now, due for a spring release.
I think a broader question would be: what's with all these films about things going down on planes? There was that Jodie Foster film this year about a woman losing her daughter while she was on the plane. I'm sure there is more to the story than that, but when I watched the trailer, I thought "uh...it's a plane...how many places are there to hide a kid?"
I think George Lucas has sapped his will to live.
As I said in my review of RotS, I've never seen an actor outside of an elementary school production who looked more embarrassed to be somewhere. The loud special effects covered the sound of him sighing with relief as he got to finally leave.
It's been titled Black Snake Moan for about a year now.
I think I'm the only person who thinks the movie looks good and the title is different in an equally good way, haha. I can see the ridiculousness of it, though.
I am giggling like a mad giggling thing. It's all your fault! :)
Man's always had a sense of humor, I give him that.
"Snakes on a Plane"? You've got to be kidding me.
Please don't link me to the IMDB: I enjoy my brain and don't want it to explode. :(
I'm afraid it's Halle Berry syndrome, and that makes me hate America.
Halle Berry syndrome: Sometimes decent roles for black actors just go out of style, as if black people just don't EXIST in the minds of hollywood producers except as a recurrent fad, and when the fad is out they gotta take shit like "Catwoman."
Jackson's just getting people to sign his checks. And that's pretty sad. Not the worst thing he could do. Cheeze is better than blaxploitation. :P
