Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of Hollywood's biggest actors at the moment and is currently my favorite. He has been known to play a number of different roles in recent years and so I have decided to make a Top 5 list of his best films. By that I mean the films he's best in.

5. Premium Rush

A fast paced, cool action made in 2012. Wasn't the biggest hit but it did get reasonably good reviews. You wont realize the minutes go by with this one.

4. Looper

A very well crafted sci-fi that was critically acclaimed and I also enjoyed the action and mystery that came behind this flick. Levitt did look weird in this one to look like Bruce Willis but it was cool all the same.

3. Don Jon

This is Levitt's latest film where not only did he star in it but he also wrote and directed it. He shown that he has the all round talent with the raunchy and surprisingly nice story of Jon from New Jersey who loves his women.

2. 50/50

An incredibly real and believable story of the troubles that Adam (Levitt) experiences with battling cancer. Its funny, charming and really does have a lasting effect.

1. 500 Days of Summer

This film is the very reason why Joseph Gordon-Levitt is my favorite actor. The story maintains the perfect balance between not being too lovey-dovey nor too cynical. His performance is very believable and makes for a classic film.

In case you're wondering why I left out the likes of Inception and The Dark Knight Rises its not because I don't like those films because they're too of my favorites. I just felt that the films I mentioned would make for a better list! Keep an eye out for Levitt in the next Sin City with Mel Gibson.
