PostSubject: Don't F*** with Samuel L. Jackson   Sun May 06, 2012 9:33 am

Most of the reviews for Joss Whedon's The Avengers have been very positive thus far, which is why Nick Fury's Samuel L. Jackson now has a bone to pick with a negative write-up from The New York Times.

The Avengers star took to the Twitterverse yesterday for support. Tweeted Jackson, "#Avengers fans, NY Times critic AO Scott needs a new job! Let's help him find one! One he can ACTUALLY do!" In his review, NYT's AO Scott wrote that the Marvel movie was "hardly worth raging about," describing Jackson's performance as "more master of ceremonies than mission commander."

Jackson received a lot of encouragement from his 825,000+ followers, but a few noted that the actor's words sounded a little harsh: "The critic has a right to his opinion," tweeted @kramercapriati. "Just because the movie has made a ton of money does not mean it is a good movie." Responded Jackson, "Actually, sometimes IT DOES."

A similar tweet came from @TheFilmsNest which read, "Disappointed to hear @SamuelLJackson respond irrationally to negative review of #Avengers. People aren't entitled to their own opinion?" To which Jackson replied, "That is My Opinion! & what's irrational about it? They aren't going to fire his jaundiced ass & You & I Know It!"

As of today, the final word went to Scott himself, who tweeted, "@SamuelLJackson @TheFilmNest Jaundiced?"

I really really really want to see this film. It's bound to be great because of the genius of the director!
You gotta love Samuel L Jackson, the man's a legend!
