I guess I just like liking things

JosephGordonLevittJoseph Gordon-Levitt turns 34 today and he’s one of those actors who seems to get better and better as time goes on. These two reasons are enough to do a list on him today, aren’t they? (Yes)

I think it’s weird I haven’t seen ten movies he’s been in, but it’s also weird that I didn’t remember he was in Lincoln, so maybe I don’t even know what’s weird anymore.

Here are all the JGL movies I’ve seen, and I actually like every one of them:

9. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For – If they’d made this movie a year or two after the first one, I suspect it would’ve been received more excitedly.

8. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – The sequel was way more fun, but if you ignore the sinking ice in this one you can still enjoy many parts of it.

7. Lincoln – We no longer need to make any more Lincoln movies, as this one and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter have us covered.

6. Looper – I’m a sucker for time travel movies, Bruce Willis movies, and cool movies, so this one was right up my alley.

5. (500) Days of Summer – One of my favorite “rom-coms,” (top five, for sure) though it hardly fits that category.

4. 50/50 – I’m sure this movie isn’t for everyone, and I’m sure my opinion will change on it from decade to decade, but I really liked it the first (and only, so far) time I saw it.

3. The Dark Knight Rises – People griped about this movie a lot, but I really like it. If they did follow-ups where JGL’s character took up the Batcape, I’d probably like those as well. But he’d be supercool as Nightwing, too, so maybe they should just do that.


1. 10 Things I Hate About You – This is more a Julia Stiles movie, sure, but JGL gets some fun stuff. If I ever do a Heath Ledger list, you can look for this one near the top spot (probably #2 after The Dark Knight, really).
