Have we done Harrison Ford yet?

In honor of the rewind's movie focus: Harrison Ford, what are your favorite Ford movies?
In the 80s, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was one of the 1st vhs tapes I had owned, and is my fave out of the Indie Jones movies.

I still have to see Blade Runner all the way through. I fell asleep on it the first time I sat down to watch it.

Moving on to the 90's... Presumed Innocent was great IMO. I can watch that movie, everytime it's on. And of course, one of the best roles I think he's ever done, Dr. Kimble in The Fugitive. Him and Tommy Lee (Jones, that is) were fantastic in this one!

I catch Hollywood Homicide often on the Starz channel, it's pretty funny, and passes the time.

Someone mentioned here that Random Hearts was a monster let-down, and I couldn't agree more. Hated it.

I thought he was great in What lies Beneath, it was great to see him as a villain.

i like the guy loads, but i named the stuff that stick out for ME. yes he was great in star wars, & american graffiti, i never saw apocalypse now. i don't want to name everything he has done, to give others a chance to come up with his other characters that they might enjoy.

Last weekend, one of my local TV stations were showing "Witness" (1985). And I kept watching it. I saw it once before as a rented VHS in the late 80's.

It's a great movie! [Smile]

My favorite 2 Ford movies are Raiders Of The Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back. (These also happen to be my favorite movies of all time, period!)
I also liked him a lot in Blade Runner, The Tom Clancy movies he did and Air Force One.
Has anyone else seen Force 10 From Naverone? That was a pretty cool one with him too. He's one of my favorite actors.

He is just awesome all around!

I would go with Blade Runner and Star Wars.

I've never really rated him as a great actor, he's just good at what he does.

I've got 2 of Harrison's movies that I've never seen before queued on my rental list,neither are 80s,one is Hanover street from 1979 and the other is regarding henry from 1991,anyone seen either of these 2.

Any good?

My favourite Harrison ford movie is probably witness,I did like patriot games a lot as well.

I have seen Regarding Henry. Nothing fantastic but worth watching for sure. It's one of those 'value consistent' type movies. It's worth at least a watch I think, but don't expect anything to over exciting.

Witness is great [Cool]

If anyone's heard, he's in apparently serious negotiations to come back as Solo for the announced Episodes VII-IX, or at least VII. DO you think he'd still work in the role at this point and age?
