    Franco has some good performances and he can be good if he is given right material but for every good perfromance and good film we get few paasable/bad ones so i think that Lewit who might not have performance as good as Franco in “127 hours” is more consitant in chosing what he is doing so il go with him cause of that.

    These guys are fairly even imo, with James and “Howl” and Joseph, who was deserving of consideration with “The Lookout.”

    I’m guessing that JGL wins this poll just based on image and perception, since sometimes, Franco doesnt do himself many favours in this area.

    The only decent Franco performance is 127 Hours. And only a couple of decent films. 

    JGL has had many more – most importantly (500) Days of Summer.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Easy. His best performance to date is in ‘Mysterious Skin’, followed by ‘(500) Days of Summer’ and ’50/50′. Also he has an impressive run of good choices and diverse roles. Even with the somehow failure of ‘Don Jon’, as a filmmaker also beats James. And what I think is most definitive, his career and filmography is ascending, while Franco’s going down.

    As much as I love both of these men, Levitt has very rarely made a bad movie or given a bad performance. I think his only dud was Sin City 2 that I have seen. Franco has made a couple of duds but also has a bunch of great movies

    The person doing these should make the objective clearer: do we choose based on who we think is the better actor or who has the better filmography…..

    Given the title, I vote based on the filmography, but everyone seems to get it wrong and vote based on acting.
    Maybe change the title of the thread? or people should be more objective…

    Best filmography: JG-L by far
    Best actor: Franco can be really good, but ogten takes on awful roles and phones it in, or worse. JGL is much more consistent, even if he hasn´t given an oscar worthy performance yet. Just give him time…

    Well, it has many shades. A filmography is made better by a ‘better’ actor. Imagine Paris Hilton playing Tilda’s part in Snowpiercer, or Megan Fox headlining Still Alice. Whose filmography shall we choose here?

    I’d say that human nature generally votes for the person overall. Even if there are ‘rules’, our votes are going to be subjective.

    I’m biased on this. JGL’s face is the most annoying thing in the universe for me. So I’ll go with Franco.

    Y’all picked Deniro over Pacino?! 
    Pacino was winning Emmys when Deniro was busy doing Sandler movies. You guys are crazy.

    Anyway, Joseph easily.

    Haha, as I recall, it was Pacino doing a movie with Adam Sandler.

    I’m with the majority here. JLG I think has the better resume.    I like Franco but his resume is too inconsistent and has too may Seth Rogen/Judd Apatow movies on it.

    I maintain that Franco is the better, clearly more versatile actor, and more ambitious artist. With that in mind, looking at their respective filmographies, Levitt’s is easily far stronger than Franco’s. So, Levitt.

    I have already said in the last thread that we are rating filmographies, but if you want to take other things into consideration it’s a free country
