Certified Vintage: Samuel L Jackson

With over a dozen new movies tied to his name, Samuel L Jackson seems to be at the peak of his game. True, Mr. Jackson has been doing this longer than some of you have been alive. Yet, his days in film are not the most interesting parts of his life. Then again his acting career is symbolic to VIntage Grind. 1979, is his first accredited feature film and over the next 11 years he was in 8 more. The first two years of the 90's he doubled that! How, he never gave up, stayed focused and stayed on his grind.



It starts in a boxing gym with people booing and yelling come on get him with a scene that screams amateur boxing. On the other hand this is from the end of an era, where plot was important. When the drama of the movie could not be enhanced a time when the acting was more important than the look.

The character Rocky Balboa in essence embodies the Grind side of our magazine even with win; he immediately suffers a loss. As the promoter explains the money he gets from the winnings, he continues home to drink a sip of beer from the fridge feed his pets and fight of swelling with a hand full of ice. This resonates grind, it screams to everyone who wakes up works hard and somehow goes to sleep with less than when they woke.
