Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most popular movie stars of all time.

In fact, movies which have featured the A-lister have earned over $27 billion which makes him the highest-grossing actor in history.

He has been nominated for one Academy Award for acting, and although he failed to win, he was given an honorary Oscar in 2022. 

Within our MovieMeter community, there are naturally various Sam Jackson movies that have received hugely positive responses.

It is perhaps no surprise to see that Pulp Fiction has received the highest score from our community. Many believe it is Quentin Tarantino's best movie and it was indeed the project that earned Jackson his Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Interestingly, the movies in positions three and four are ones in which he plays a very small part. In fact, for Inglorious Basterds, his role was limited to a voiceover.

He has been involved in some of the biggest franchises of all time including Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Two franchise movies - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Avengers: Infinity War - make it into our top 10.
