I've had some intestinal issues for the past 5 months.. so I have sympathy for that.

(finally getting the doctors to go in there on Monday...)

I really enjoyed Karen Allen's scene on top of the submarine in that lingerie.

It's hard to think of a more enjoyable movie than Raiders of the Lost Ark. Sure, there are deeper, more demanding and more rewarding movies, but Raiders is just such a pleasure to watch. The film gods were smiling when they gave Ford a case of the shiats.

Nah, Indy follows the reverse Star Trek rule, only the odd numbered ones are any good.

So what you're saying is that they HAVE to make another one. Gotcha.

Or would that follow under the "Nemesis Exception" corollary?

saw Harrison Ford on a talk show years ago. stereotypical blockhead actor with mindless comments in a dull monotone. yet there he is, one of the most over rated actors of our time. he should run for office, no doubt american dooshbags would vote him right on in.

KrispyKritter: mindless comments in a dull monotone


I think Ford just has no respect for or need of the media, so it's expedient and efficient for him to be curt of the point of dickishness. I get the sense (or may have heard) that he's unwilling to do standard movie promotion. If that limits the rolls available to him, I doubt he cares.

My disappointment in him is that he doesn't seem to be pushing his craft. He's made his money and doesn't seem to be interested in exercising his potential or producing memorable performances.

LindenFark: If that limits the rolls available to him,


I have inside sources at a company that was doing some business with mr.ford.

He was up next in line for a nice poppyseed roll but because of his behaiver with the media head office said we couldn't allow him to have it.
 
2012-09-08 07:18:54 AM  
What's more amusing is how well the crowd reacted to that bit improvisation.

I'd halfway expect them to all stand there with a '.... dud, that's not in the script' look rather than all of them just going with it.

I'm sure he can still get his own poppyseed rolls, but I guess you could count that as him suffering a repercussion, yeah.

Always wondered why the crowd cheered. The foreign dude essentially blew into town and murdered one of their own. And I happen to have a couple of theories:

#1 The Swordsman is some kind of town menace, like maybe he goes around stealing whatever he wants from their market stalls under threat of cutting them with his sword.

#2 In the practical world of filmmaking, that's probably about the only thing the extras were capable of doing on that budget and schedule.

/Also have theories about how that light trap worked, as well as one or two other factors in the film. Was obsessed with this movie when it came out.
 
2012-09-08 08:31:45 AM  
And by the way, Lucas stole a lot from Uncle Scrooge for that film.
 
2012-09-08 08:35:59 AM  
I like the gunshot end to that scene better... i saw that movie at the theater when i was 11.. still one of the best movie viewing experiences i ever had.. and since i can't goto theaters anymore (Cell phones... douches and black people that yell at the screen (Stereotypes exist for a reason)) it will stay my #1 theater movie forever:)

What does this mean?

Also, hes a douche in every interview I've ever seen. He seems like he's almost incapable of speaking at all. And he's the biggest douche about Star Wars. I get it, you don't want to talk about one role you did 100 years ago.
Shatner went through this too with Trek, everyone got pissed, and then he embraced it.

Face it, you're Han Solo and Indiana Jones. No one is running up to you saying "Hey! it's the dude from Hollywood Homicide!!"

So farking answer the questions about Star Wars when Jay Leno asks you about Star Wars!

The thing about Harrison is He BEEFS. He'll drop 5 or 6 forearm-sized logs in there with no flushes in between. Rumor has it that on the set of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" he used to shiat in the shower and heel it down the drain to save time.

Hey, you got a "funny" click from me. The roll/role thing is almost as annoying as people who say "casted." Some would say it's a grammar Nazi thing, but I argue it's more of a "knowing what you're farking talking about" thing.

/just remember to spell check your own post before engaging in such behavior

Reminds me of every kung fu movie that set in modern times. The bad guy doesn't like some hayseed who good at kung fu? Shoot him, forget this "fight him the honorable way!" I understand, then there'd be no movie.

My father is a film critic and he told me that Harrison Ford was the most boring interviewee he's ever had.
I've only seen him on Conan and I thought he was funny albeit a little weird.

I always thought that the swordsman and a few other town thugs were Nazi sympathizers/collaborators who helped them keep order and that most of the other townspeople resented the Nazis coming in and doing thir thing. That would explain why they cheered the swordsman's death and why they helped Indy hide the truck with the ark on it at the end of the chase scene

For what it's worth, my Uncle had a ranch next to Harrison Ford's ranch in Wyoming. He met the guy on several occasions and said he couldn't be a nicer guy. Ford also piloted helicopters and helped with search and rescue in the area. Doesn't seem that douchy to me.

It's on my list of movies that is required for cultural acclimation to the US.

Young Frankenstein, Star Wars, Rocky, Goonies, Christmas Story, Dr. Strangelove, The Matrix, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Grapes of Wrath, The Great Escape, The Good the Bad and the Ugly...

These are not the best films, nor is it the entire list. Just a few examples of films that if you haven't seen, you are missing something from your personal Zeitgeist experience.


Any other critical films you farkers would suggest?

Again, they don't have to be good, just significant in our cultural lingo.

Ie: You don't have to like The Godfather to understand that not having seen it leaves you at a cultural understanding disadvantage. While Lawrence of Arabia is an example of a good film, it isn't as critical to see it as would be the Wizard of Oz.

Conversely, I've met with many people who worked with Tom Cruise and the unanimous consensus is that he is a bigger asshole than most imagine.

Several were sailors and pilots from the USS Enterprise. Others were some actors of marginal success.
