Today, I’m asking you what is your all-time favorite Harrison Ford film.
Pop Culture Theme Time is a feature where I put a question to you to see what you think about a particular theme. I might later revisit the theme for a future Drawing Crazy Patterns or Top Five.
With the latest (last?) Indiana Jones film about to debut, I thought it’d be a fascinating challenge to see what you all think is your favorite Harrison Ford movie (and by “Harrison Ford movie,” I mean any movie that Harrison Ford starred in, whether he was the main lead or not. Basically, any movie featuring Ford in a role bigger than a cameo). We all get it, the guy has been in a TON of amazing movies. I absolutely ADORE The Fugitive, and I think it’s likely not even a strong contender for the top spot, that’s how good this guy’s films are.
I won’t bother with honorable mentions, as we all know what they are, but I am going to go with Raiders of the Lost Ark. It’s just such a thrilling combination of wit, adventure and characterization. Indiana Jones is such a great character, as is Marion Ravenwood.
Okay, so that’s my pick. What’s yours?
