Could be worse. 

 

We could have no Zimmer.

Totally fine with this.

There was a bit of a to-do last year when Gosling mentioned that Ford accidentally punched him in the face while filming a fight scene. Today, we get Ford's side of the story and it's the most Harrison Ford story of all time that doesn't involve planes.

Ford has been so awesome since he woke up from whatever coma he was in all those years.

I desperatly want Ford to do more and more after his resurgence.

I need another "Frantic" or "Witness" from him, and now that Liam Neeson is done with "old badass kicks ass" movies, Ford could step up and fill the void.

If they weren't doing an ill advised TV series, I would say bring him back as President Jack Ryan for one last big budget Jack Ryan movie.

Prequels ain't working!
post #658 of 1173
By the time Ryan became President in the novels, Ryan had just become an author insertion character who ranted about the dangers of feminism. Pass.

I'd like to think that Ford has another MOSQUITO COAST in him.  That's still the best acting that he's ever done.

Agreed. He's never topped that. A shame that wasn't an Oscar nomination, for anything to boot! Weir/Ford/Schrader is a formidable combo.

I do wonder if Weir later considered him for Fearless.

Wow, that would have been interesting. 

 

But I'm happy with Bridges in the role. From the interview, it seems Ford's ventures into spirituality are "his" business. Bridges does not mind going there on film.

Rewatching the original and imagining how the Deckard/Rachael love scene would play today. There would be be so many thinkpieces.
post #664 of 1173
Fifty Shades Deckard?

So one of the most expensive R-rated movies ever made is about to open to a whopping $40M according to estimates.

post #667 of 1173

God, I love Harrison Ford, but nothing will top that HARDWICK interview: 

“Do you know how hard it is not to ask you a bunch of Star Wars questions?”

“Why don’t you show me how hard it is?”

Does it make much of a difference that it's "one of the most expensive R-rated independent movies ever made?" Meaning that could be somewhat relative?

This is good?  ...or bad?

Well it cost $200M minus marketing, I don't think the distinction matters.

post #671 of 1173

Oh shit. I couldn't find a number on the budget. Nevermind!

If it's an expensive "failure" at the box office that's critically well received and doesn't shit all over the original, I'm going to count my blessings.

Besides, isn't the WORST thing that could happen is this brings in $400 million domestic and they decide to try to turn BR into DARK STAR WARS with a billion sequels?
post #673 of 1173
Yup. The best-case scenario here is that this isn't shit but makes squat and they never make another one.

Wait...which Blade Runner are you talking about?
post #675 of 1173
The new short with Bautista was like watching a Blade Runner basic cable show on the USA Network. They are really doing their best to dispel any mystique here.

Thank God we dodged that bullet.

post #677 of 1173

Cough "SOLDIER" Cough.

post #678 of 1173

Are the short films recommended watches for context?

post #679 of 1173
I'm admittedly selfish enough not to care how this movie performs at the box office. I just don't want it to be another Tron Legacy.

Why are you watching these things?  The ticket's already sold, surely all that watching promos will do is ruin the surprise.

This footage isn't in the movie, it's a prelude.

post #683 of 1173
Oh. Well, ok. I'm thinking of it as like eating snacks before your meal. You'll ruin your appetite!
post #684 of 1173
A rated R horror movie based on a book released in 1986 cost $35 million dollars and made $123 million in its opening weekend.

A rated R science fiction sequel to a movie released in 1982 cost $200 million dollars and is estimated to make $40 million in its opening weekend.

Which studio made the miscalculation?
post #685 of 1173

Same studio.

 

Apples and oranges, btw.

post #686 of 1173
My question was meant to be rhetorical.

A sequel to Blade Runner was huge risk to take for WB. But a $200 million dollar budget? Like... what???
post #687 of 1173

Can't wait to show my girl Blade Runner before venturing into 2049. 

post #688 of 1173

The full interview is great. Ford watches VICE:

Isn't that the beauty of Hollywood though. Take those risks on interesting filmmakers. Give Villeneuve a 200 M budget. This is nothing but good news for movie fans like us.

Think the fear is if it bombs then you'll see less risks of a similar nature.
post #691 of 1173
Really, though? When has that happened. We've seen these "risks" for the past decade. Successful and not successful. It ain't stopping now.
post #692 of 1173

Risks are pretty few and far between though at the big budget level nowdays.

This interview is the latest evidence that the world really needs to be a Curb Your Enthusiasm-style show starring Harrison Ford.

post #694 of 1173

 After reading that GQ interview I want to see a movie starring Ford and Tommy Lee Jones who make being old dudes who don't give a shit look like the coolest thing ever!

post #695 of 1173

"I can't sanction this buffoonery, Dr. Kimble!"

"............I don't care."

Like this?

 I would rather see Statler and Waldorf get their own Rifftrax like show.

Reading this now. I appreciate this take:

 

Quote:

It would be wrong, though, to call Blade Runner an auteurist masterpiece—it’s also a mess, perpetually at odds with itself, the product of shifting alliances and offscreen subterfuge.

 

This seems pretty accurate. BR is visually a masterpiece but in many other ways it is a mess, albeit a fascinating, compelling one (to discuss, anyway; I still find the film itself pretty snoozy, visual excepted).

post #700 of 1173
Blade Runner?
You know what I'm going to say.
