One of JOE's favourite films of all time, Snakes on a Plane, is eight years old this week and to celebrate we have decided to take a look at what makes Samuel L. Jackson just so motherf#*ing cool.


To be honest, it was hard to summarise just how awesome the man is with just a  few points.

His box-office figures are staggering

According to the Guinness Book Of World Records, he’s earned $7.42 billion in his career. Wow!

Jackson doesn't suffer fools lightly


After enduring a cringe worthy interview KTLA’s entertainment correspondent Sam Rubin, who thought Samuel L. Jackson was in fact Laurence Fishburne, this is how the great man reacted in his next round of interviews for Captain America 2.

George Lucas explained that lightsabers could only always be two colours: red for the Sith and green for the Jedi.

Samuel L. Jackson managed to convince Lucas that his lighsaber should be purple and have the letters BMF (“Bad Motherfu'*er”) inscribed on it.

It seems that he really likes Katie Taylor
