Following Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Damon and the Toms, Cruise and Hanks, Samuel L. Jackson hit The Late Late Show last night to re-enact his career at fast speed with co-star James Corden. The 10-minute, blue screen–aided retrospective kicks off, flawlessly, with Pulp Fiction and the whole Biblical monologue from Brett's apartment—followed by another scene from that one, succeeded by more Tarantino action via Jackie Brown.
This is arguably the best edition of this Corden sketch. It's got something to do with the quality of Samuel L. Jackson's filmography, plus his actorly abilities and the joy of watching him recreate not-small chunks of dialogue from the classics.
The roll call after the Tarantino opener includes Snakes on a Plane, Jurassic Park, the Star Wars prequels, The Incredibles, Goodfellas, Unbreakable, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Do the Right Thing, Shaft, Black Snake Moan, all those Marvel movies and even Kong: Skull Island, not out till tomorrow.
