Harrison Ford has been in a lot of movies over the years. Starting with American Graffitti and moving on up from there doing some excellent movies. He's well known as Han Solo, Indianna Jones, or even as Dr. Richard Kimble. Are there any fans of his on here besides me that is? If so what are your favorite movies with him? Are there any of his that you don't like? Almost all the movies I've seen him in I've enjoyed. Besides the ones listed above one of my favorites with him is Air Force One. I thought he did a fantastic job at playing the President in that movie. I liked the character he played in there as well. One movie I thought that could have been done better with him was Six days Seven Nights. It wasn't the actors so much in that but the story line itself. For more information on what movies he has done you can check here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000148/

He'll always be Han Solo to me!! *grins big* I love Harrison Ford! It's amazing that there are those actors who can still mesmerize you, even when they're getting old. =p I've liked a lot of his movies, though of course as a nerd I have to say Star Wars is the best. Or something like that. Actually I really loved "The Devil's Own", which I often hear accused of being really bad. Guess I have strange taste.

He was prefect as Han Solo. I cannot imagine another actor playing him and to think Lucas didn't want him in the role. Of course he didn't want him in the role as Indianna either but he did both and really made them special. I haven't seen the Devil's Own but I'd like to.

I adore Harrison Ford! I think he is great in any thing he stars in. He was wonderful in Firewall. I still chuckle when I think of him as Han Solo when he said "laugh it up Fuzzball" to Chewbacca. He was just so cute and young. He has grown more distinguished with the years. I heard a rumor that he was going to do another Indiana Jones movie soon. I can't wait to see his next offering.

I love that line. One of my favorites from Empire Strikes Back. I heard that rumor as well but not sure how true it is. You never know what they will do in Hollywood.

I love Harrison Ford!!! I have always thought he was a wonderful actor!!! Of course, I loved him in Indiana Jones. LOL But I also absolutely loved him in the movie Sabrina. He was very seductive. :) Have you seen that movie? I would love to see it released on DVD to add to my movie collection.

Sabrina is out on DVD. In fact I think I saw it at Wal-Mart in their sale area for $4.88. It was either there or over in the $5.50 bin but can't remember for sure. I just remember seeing it and that was the two areas I was looking in.

What Lies Beneath. I haven't seen that one yet but I was told it was very good. I loved him in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger it's too bad he didn't do the original as well, Hunt For Red October. I think he does a far better job as Jack Ryan then Alec Baldwin did.

yeah, I'm a Harrison Ford fan. To me he is one of those actors that has aged gracefully. the older he got, the sexy and more distinguished he became. I'll always like him best for his Star Wars and Indiana Jones series because those were his bad boy, rough and tumble, roles. alright, can you tell I think he's sexy?

Just a little but then I think he is too. He has gotten better looking as he got older. Not many can do that but he has.

Heheh yes that is Six Days and Seven Nights. I know many people loved it. For me it just seemed to be missing something. He's done a lot of movies though. It really amazes me how many at times. I also loved the ones where he played Jack Ryan, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. Both were very good.

I loved AirForce One and Sabrina. But I didn't like Firewall that much because I kinda felt so much was lacking in that film.

I prefer him in American Grafitti, Star Wars and the Indiana Jones series. I'm not into the drama so much, but I am sure he is excellent in them. His rugged good looks are lovely to watch.

I love this man...in fact, he's my one and only favorite actor. I will constantly watched some of his previous movies like The Fugitive and Air Force One. No matter how many times I watched, I will keep watching it over and over again. He acted with such intensity and passion that moviegoers come to know him. He's terrific.

Harrison Ford is also on the list of my favorite actors. I find him always giving justice to the role he is playing. The ones i liked most are The Fugitive, Air Force One and Clear & Present Danger. The last one i watched was Firewall. Of all his movies that i've watched, it's also Six Days Seven Nights that i liked the least but the factor there is not his acting but the plot.

I dont know if I have a FAVORITE! I think he is really funny. I think I love him best tie between indiana jones & star wars! I love him as Indiana its hilrious cause he is really funny and sarcastic. I seem to like those who are like me (sarcastic!). All the movies, except I think I didnt like Firewall. All the others he was a great actor in them. I think he is a wonderful actor to watch. I hope he keeps making movies cause he is really great! I am a fan as well :))

He is a good actor and I like his movies, including a rarely mentioned Mosquito Coast, though he did a good job the only thing I didn't feel fit was his doing the character of of Jack Ryan in the Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger, while he did a good job, I was still kind of stuck because I read the books, with thinking that they needed to keep using Alec Baldwin. Though he did a great job in those movies, and the problems with Patriot Games were due to the script changes not the actors.

air force one is where i really find him great. ofcourse he's great in indiana jones but i am not an indiana jones fan. i can also remember him in han solo. but too old a film. so, it was wheni saw him in airforce one, i got really to like his act there. and isn't he also in starwars? correct me if i am wrong. but i do think he is there, too. harrison ford did lots of nice films. and i do have a collection of his films. i also like his hollywood homicide film. it's so funny!

Han Solo was who he played in Star Wars, he played in the original triology.

Harrison Ford - Harrison Ford. actor
Harrison Ford is a good actor, I do like watching his movies, except for the last release Cowboys & Aliens which turned out to be quiet boring. Indiana Jones series is Harrison Ford best movies, I liked the most was The Devil's Own with Harrison Ford & Brad Pitt that was an exceptional movie.

My favourite Harrison Ford movie will always be Witness. The storyline, the music, his co-actors and his acting make the film a classic.
