Period. Looking forward to his comedy this summer, 'Morning Glory.' 'Extraordinary Measures' not so much. And to say that 'Crossing Over' is one of the worse films of 2009 is a gross overstatement. Yes, the film sucked, but there were plenty of other shittier films out there that year. That, and the Weinstein brothers tore the film apart (surprise, surprise).

It's so obvious he hasn't been happy in a long time with movie making. He just looks like he's over it, even though he keeps making movies. I think he just loves the business so much, and has pride, he doesn't want to quit while at such a low. Which keeps perpetuating the problem. Read more here: http://tinyurl.com/yer3hkc “I grew up in a system where the studios spent a lot of money on the development of stories and ideas and bought books and they really developed the scripts. That doesn’t happen anymore."
Jan. 22, 2010, 6:25 a.m. CST
We'll never see them at their peak again (except maybe Spielberg), particularly Ford. And the sad thing is, there's nothing in Hollywood today that even remotely suggests we'll see anyone like them again. Clooney maybe, but I dunno. It's just not looking good with all the remakes and reboots and the way scripts & projects are developed these days.
Jan. 22, 2010, 6:34 a.m. CST
So don't expect too much. Harrison Ford agreed to the role because he wants to support studios who support new projects.

...what happened to you! My mum and sister ordered Crossing Over on digital when I visited them for Christmas because of Ford- and they like Ashley Judd- and he seemed and acted sooooo bored! I mean to do that in interviews is one thing (I thought he was sick of superstardom and the media in general) but in a film? What? And to a lesser extent Fraser- he does have the acting chops- excellent in The Quiet American and I thought was a good leading man in The Mummy- but in this he...just looks...awful- and podgy!
Jan. 22, 2010, 7:03 a.m. CST
Didn't see Crossing Over, but Indy 4 was brought down more by Ford's bored off his ass acting than the terrible script, bad direction, and gross misuse of the whole cast. Sorry for bringing Indy 4 into the conversation but it's indicative of Ford's recent state of mind. Seeing him stoned or drunk off his ass at the Golden Globes last week on top of the horrible performances he's given in bottom feeder movies the past ten years, stick a fucking fork in the guy. His recent choices make Deniro's last ten years look worthy of Deniro.

Ford should cameo in STAR TREK 2<p> picture him as a Starfleet Admiral (April?) giving Kirk his orders like Kirk was always getting in TOS on the main viewer...<p> JJ Abrams produced Fords forthcoming 'Morning Glory' (wonder if that'll be any good?), Abrams is apparently a HUGE SW fan plus Ford visited the Trek09 set so it aint impossible..<p> and talking of SW if Ford (and Lucas) want to bust Avatar from the top of the BO tree they should do a Solo movie (like Jackman doing the Wolverine movie)... not Episode VII or Clone Wars - itd be like an extention of the OT. Solo was the character everyone wanted to see more of anyway. only dont get Lucas to direct or write for that matter...exec produce only...let Spielberg finally direct a SW film <p> yknow i guess it wouldnt be impossible to do it WITHOUT Ford with someone like the Firefly guy. but theyd have to get Ford in there to cameo as Solo prime <p> anyone read that Solo/Indy cross over comic a while back? maybe something like that would work (not crashing on earth and having Indy discover the Falcon - just a film that focuses on Han and Chewie)

Jan. 22, 2010, 12:27 p.m. CST
Im suprised no ones mentioned this so far - its too obvious yes? seriously this film deserves an extra star just for that bit of casting..<p> wonder if they shot the shit together discussing the merits of each series over a JB outside a dimly lit porch after a hard days shoot?...<p> then again judging by this - maybe not:<p> Harrison Ford was so frustrated with Extraordinary Measures co-star Brendan Fraser's fluffed lines, he had "tech talk" scenes stuck to his forehead. The Indiana Jones star, who was also a producer of the film - about a real-life father's struggle to save his daughters with the help of a pioneering scientist - was keen to save time and money on the shoot and grew weary of Fraser's inability to get his tongue around complex medical terms. The Mummy star recalls, "We'd spent an entire day... and it came (to me) and all I had to do was come up with one or two lines and, for the life of me, I couldn't get it right... It's the pinnacle moment. "Harrison's like, 'F**kwit...' I said, 'I'm sorry, man, I can't get the line.' He says, 'Yes you can, there's money on the line.' "He reached over and grabbed a piece of gaffer tape, wrote it (the line) and stuck it to his forehead... and I read the line off of his forehead."

If you're talking in terms of box office, I'd say that between the LOTR and POTC trilogy, Orlando Bloom's got him beat and then some. Acting-wise, well Ford's work in Jedi, with his facial expressions and physical mannerisms, I thought he was in an old Ma & Pa Kettle movie. Aw shucks Han.
Jan. 22, 2010, 1 p.m. CST
Adjust those box office numbers for inflation and ticket prices and I guarantee you Ford's films have destroyed Bloom's. Besides, Bloom's a terrible actor, whose only decent role has been his mostly silent rendition of an elf.

Big question is how many films has Bloom carrie don his own. Ford has many films that weren't big SFX ensemble pieces. I don't remember Elizabethtown or Kingdom of Heaven making very much, hence why he's practically disappeared other than the last POTC film.
Jan. 22, 2010, 2:14 p.m. CST
But he doesn't seem able to progress to the next stage in his acting career. He should be doing stuff like Connery & Caine: playing older dudes, playing memorable, supporting roles rather than leading parts. Maybe he hasn't got it in him.
Jan. 22, 2010, 2:47 p.m. CST
..and Star Trek 2 would be a good start<p> we do need an Indy 5 though...once hes done with that - then do the supporting roles like Connery, Caine etc...he really needs to find something like Connery in Untouchables...a gruff supporting role in a ***** star film which would bad him a best supporting oscar <p>

Capone, I've seen pictures of you teaching one of your shitty little seminars - hahaha - and you dump on Harrison Ford? What have you ever done with your life but give thumbs up or thumbs down to movies? You've never put a damn thing on the line creatively. Ever. Ford is a fucking legend and the characters he's inhabited are iconic. CROSSING OVER doesn't deserve your contempt - it was a decent ensemble drama that probably exists in a far better version in Weinstein's "films I've destroyed" vault. But it had excellent performances across the board. It's only real problem is its timing. It's missed the immigration debate window and too many crappy ensemble character films had already come out - but Ford did a laudable job in the role. How you could sit across the table from the man and do an interview with him after already determining that you thought EM sucked - and that you hated CO is one of the most douche baggy, two faced acts of your pathetic journalistic career. How the fuck could I ever trust a "writer" who puts AWAY WE GO on his list of top films of 2009, while dissing Ford's return to form in CROSSING OVER. I challenge all these talkback readers who are talking shit about Ford and CROSSING OVER to actually see the film. I'm betting most of you writing about it haven't even seen it and are just repeating the bad reviews you've heard about. The film has 6.9 rating on IMDB, which is above average and rates better on IMDB than most of Ford's recent films, including his Jack Ryan flicks and CRYSTAL SKULL. And that's after Weinstein reportedly cut out over 20 minutes of character development and some major scenes with Sean Penn. You probably got turned down by some stale piece of the ass the night you went to see CROSSING OVER and couldn't handle seeing Alice Eve's gorgeous tits on display multiple times. For that reason alone, CROSSING OVER should be essential viewing.

Someone seriously needs to tell Ford about the big gigantic stinking pile of crap he produced over the past decade(s! oh gods!). Capone obviously passed on the opportunity to even subtly criticize his latest addition to the shit-pile and who can blame him? My theory for Ford's attraction to crap: The man doesn't watch movies (he openly admits it), thus doesn't know what a good movie looks like (absence of any kind of reliable taste) and hence -with all the power and money he's got- is only producing and acting in utter crap. Too silly to regret, I guess....but it's still making me a little sad. All the missed opportunities.
Jan. 22, 2010, 8:03 p.m. CST
He only has one expression, that of total disgust. And when he attempts to smile, it looks totally forced. He just seems like a miserable person. Like he despises everything and everyone around him. I used to tolerate his movies because, well, he's fucking Han Solo and Indiana Jones. But now whenever I see a Harrison Ford movie on TV, I change the channel immediately.
