    Forest Whitaker is not that black dude in the Movie Pulp Fiction. The one who quoted a Christian Scripture, or GOD's word. Samuel L. Jackson makes Forest look like that retarded guy called "Forest." He is a white guy who is called "Forest Gump" in another Movie that isn't anything like Pulp Fiction. I saw Pulp Fiction five times within a two months time. I paid to sit in a theater each time I was watching John Travolta, or Vinnie Bobarino, dance to some pretty cool oldies music. So, I will sum up this opinion by saying, "Forest Whitaker" has a nice face. He is close to the Face of God. Not GOD. There is a difference. God might be the Muslim God, not the Christian GOD. That is a big maybe. Run Forest, Run.
