Ain't It Cool News (www.aintitcool.com)
Movie News

What did we ever do to deserve something this cool' Sam Jackson is AFRO SAMURAI!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with news of a project that could possibly be the coolest thing ever. On the whole planet of Earth. In the whole Universe, Multi-verse... ever. Sam Jackson as AFROSAMURAI? That concept is... just... wow.

This project, which you can read about over at Variety if you want more info, is going to be adapted to both a live action feature and a cartoon series, where Jackson will also voice the cartoon version of himself.

I don't know about you guys, but I have visions of a live-action CLONE WARS-esque Sam Jackson killing the shit out of bad guys left and right... With the tone of something like SHOGUN ASSASSIN... That's what I want and I hope I get something anywhere near that cool! AFROSAMURAI has just become the title to look for... Although it looks like we'll have to wait for 2007... sigh...

    I still think Hollywood can't direct a 'real' fight/action scene. Just my opinion. You watch Naruto episode 133-135 and that is how Spiderman or X-Men should have moved like in the live-action movies.

    Where did all the acting hate come from? I can think of plenty of niche actors. Hmmm... C.Heston, John Wayne, Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise. S.L. Jackson found an archetype character to work with that people liked and he ran with it. Not everyone wants to be a jack-of-all trades.

You'd rather see some no name Buddy Holly looking weirdo in a lame ass movie than Sam Jackson following the code of the samurai and chopping guys in half? Thats a new low folks, Lets face it Sam Jackson is fucking cool. Just like Robert Dnearo whose name i can't spell right Clint Eastwood,Al Pacino and Burt Mother Fucking Reynolds. If they stuck to only action movies and bad ass roles they would never do wrong in our eyes but they gotta do some shitty things for money every now and then. Bottom line Sam Jackson rules ass.

    I consistently pay to see regurgitated horror films just to give out about them, but it's an enjoyable hobby. I buy the ones I care about, pay in to the ones I can't wait to dissect and eventually piss on (The Descent turned the tables on that old notion though). Guilty as charged. Now with that out of the way, Afrosamurai sounds like a pretty stupid idea seeing as we already had Forrest Whitaker kicking ass and flirting with pigeons in Ghost Dog. But I enjoy Sam Jackson's stuff, so I'll go see it anyway. I just reserve the right to complain about it. On a slightly less related note, Oldman will always be cooler than Jackson. "Bring me everyone." "What do you mean "everyone"? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVERYONE!

    Sam Jackson's not supposed to be a Shakespearian Thespian, he's supposed to be cool. Which is what he is. If 'Afro Samurai' is meant to be next years Million Dollar Baby, then sure he's probably the wrong choice. But by the sound of it, Afro Samurai is meant to be cool, ergo Sam Jackson is the best choice, with Lawrence Fishburne a close second.

    by Meremoth

    It's a stereo type, alveit a stereotype I've never heard of before. Saying white people can't tell the difference between rice isn't because the white devil has been opressing everyone ever since we stole black powder from the Chinese and built superior weaponry. Besides, just because Sam can't weild a lightsaber doesn't mean that black people can't use swords. It's like saying white guys can't dance. Damn. Ok maybe white guys can't dance.

    Sam as an actor... and other stuff

    by Neosamurai85

    You know, I was looking him up on IMDB and I realized something... I ain't seen half the shit this man has cranked out. So I got to ask, how many of the people that keep saying he is a one trick pony have? I mean, He certainly has played around with the same character a lot in some films... but all og them. Oh and Meremoth... Did you just say gay people can't dance? WTF??? Oh and liljuniorbrown, I mostly agree with you... except with Robert De Niro. I don't want to see him just do action films. I want him to get off his ass and be the badass motherfucking actor he really is. The guy that could be anything in his youth. Age used to mean deep roles... Lion and Winter kind of stuff. But De Niro keeps fucking around with the Fockers! I've got no problem with Action De Niro. Heat... Ronin... gold. But man... Raging Bull... that's what I miss. Peace.

    Why not do AFRO NINJA THE MOVIE

    by Black Caeser

    Sam Jackson can do a nunchaku routine then flip and conk himself on the head. Then get up and stagger through the rest of his routine. That can be the whole movie.

    Actually there are plenty of Mature-rated cartoons

    by The Killer-Goat

    They play alot of them on Cartoon Network after 9pm. Because not all cartoons are for kiddies anymore. Get with the new millennium, y'know?

    Neosamurai85...slow your roll before you hurt your role. Darkfalz_stop being an attention whore, it does not suit someone with dark as their moniker.
