I am not on the Joseph Gordon-Levitt train.
I liked him in Looper, but he was forgettable in The Dark Knight Rises and Inception. I really disliked him in (500) Days of Summer. Probably doesn’t help that I flat out hated those three movies anyway. And Looper? That was such a good story that I would’ve liked it no matter who was in the lead role.
There’s something about JGL’s presence that just irritates the $h!t out of me. It’s the same feeling I get from Julia Roberts and Bradley Cooper. When they show up on screen, I want to punch it.
Those are obviously not my most rational moments in life.
So, JGL makes me want to punch things. Then this happened:
The Sandman. With Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring.
I was never interested in a Sandman adaptation to begin with, but I had a better attitude about it when it was in the works as a series on The CW.
