    His turn as an IT guru in Firewall was nothing short of hilarious miscasting.

    None of his big films have been in genres which tend to win major awards either. It's all sci-fi, adventure or action films, really.

    Are you suggesting he was choosing those roles over ones more likely to get him awards? Somehow I doubt it.

    Nah, he is just one of those actors who is not bad or great, gets the job done with some charm. The good roles just dried up and he did some bad films but you can see he was trying to do different ones at least, I imagine he has a hefty pay check which doesn't help.

    I thought he was good in What Lies Beneath and more recently Morning Glory. Still watchable as ever.

    Also Tommy Lee Jones got an Oscar for the Fugitive. Talk about a snub for Harrison who wasn't even nominated.

    He had masses of screen presence when he was younger but he's been shit for a good while now. Doesn't help that he's clearly a cunt in real life.

    Eh? No, I mean that he could have played the shit out of most of the roles and it wouldn't have made him win any awards. On the face of it he seems more concerned with the money than the glamour.

    He got nominated for Witness.

    Ford has said it before, it's just a job to him but there is times when he does care about the character. He wouldn't have got far if he didn't.

    I have huge amounts of man love for Harrison Ford. The fact he's also a grumpy cunt just makes the attraction stronger.

    I was staring at that last one for a while thinking "is that supposed to be Indy 5?"

    Then I realised I'd actually managed to wipe Cowboys and Aliens entirely from memory. I've seen the entire thing through and only remember that Bond had something stuck to his arm for most of it.
    That's a weird one. It's a shit film but he's pretty good in it, same with bond.

    He totally called it

    I don't think that's necessary true. Again, the Fugitive was well recognosed at the Oscars but he didn't get nominated. Regarding Henry was also Oscar bait that got ignored (he went full retard, never go full retard).

    I think he could have been more. Some decisions and pissing off the wrong people limited him.

    He's already got a big VFX-heavy sci-fi film coming out soon, so he's already having a crack at that genre.
    Really? I thought that was Del Toro with Pacific Rim?

    Cuaron or Del Toro were my top picks. Just have a look at the Troll market scene in Hellboy 2 to see what magic the latter can work with creature effects.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    Tough kind of film to win a Lead Actor nomination though, not to mention the guy's no Tommy Lee Jones. I guess at the end of the day I just don't think he had it in him to be that level of actor.

    Regarding Henry was also Oscar bait that got ignored (he went full retard, never go full retard).
    hehe. Completely forgot that one existed. Fair enough.

    It's a film called Gravity (based on a book, I believe). From what I know from people working on it it should be quite the spectacle.

    Tommy Lee Jones wasn't even acting in The Fugitive. They just paid him a million dollars to hunt down Harrison Ford and then followed him around with a camera.
  • Deleted user 28 November 2012 18:09:05
    (possible heresy incoming) - I actually preferred US Marshals to The Fugitive, despite it being basically a remake.

    Latest rumour from Hollywood reporter website

    Sources tell THR that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg will write separate projects, not necessarily "Episode 8" and "Episode 9" -- a plan similar to Marvel's movies around "The Avengers."

    insiders tell THR that while Kasdan and Kinberg indeed have been hired to work on the Star Wars franchise, they will be writing separate projects (hence the reason why they also would receive producer credits), not necessarily Episode VIII and Episode IX.

    Their scripts could turn into official “Episodes” in the main Skywalker storyline, or they could form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters. Disney CEO Robert Iger said the goal is to release a Star Wars movie “every two to three years,” and some could focus on other pieces of the expansive mythos (similar to Marvel’s Avengers universe). Disney and Lucasfilm declined comment.

    With a new round of Star Wars movies heading our way it looks like the TV show might possibly finally happen now to.

    http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/01/11/abc-will-consider-reviving-live-action-star-wars-series

    I was always keen to see some live action telly in the SW universe (as long as it wasn't prequel turdness of course). Would be nice if it happened.

    Not sure about Zack Snyder, his films always lack, well, anything. They're very superficial, he may nail the visual but getting us to give a shit is another matter entirely.

    Then again, that sounds like the prequels all over.

    Get bent.

    Well there's the slow-mo..

    His films aren't awful, I find them perfectly watchable but never memorable.

    I wanna see some prequelly stuff with Solo and Chewie and Lando ripping off the Hutts. I would also love some Sith Lords and Old Republic stuff. Not really interested in the Skywalker dynasty tbh.

    I don't care what they do as long as it has X-Wings and TIE Fighters and big stompy walking vehicles. Gotta tone down the jedi shit to, prequels completely killed the Jedi and it was always the flakey side of Star Wars anyway.

    Nothing beats a good blaster by your side....

    I'm fine with that.

    I know some people weren't happy with Star Trek, but his style will fit Star Wars nicely. He can mix the funny and the serious pretty well, unlike Lucas with Episode III and one scene having Anakin brutally murder a captive immediately followed by R2D2 slapstick.

    Just so long as it isn't Michael Bay.
  • Deleted user 24 January 2013 22:07:09
    JJ Abrams seems really really unlikely. I don't think they'd have one person handling Star Wars -and- Star Trek simultaneously. The universe would explode.
