It’s the 35th Anniversary of the release of the greatest film of all time, Raiders Of The Lost Ark. So you KNOW we had to do something special, being we are the Harrison Ford show.
We have a commentary track for you to listen to while watching Raiders Of The Lost Ark (since Steven and George won’t give us one). Listen to this, find out where to line up with the movie, grab a beer and geek out with us.
We did it. We caught up to Harrison Ford just as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is released. It’s something we wanted to do when we started this podcast and it took us 1 1/2 years to do it (coming down to the final hours), but we did it.
This episode we cover Harrison’s roles in Ender’s Game, Anchorman 2, The Expendables 3, The Age Of Adeline and the Fugitive documentary.
Hope you enjoy, it’s been fun going though Harrison’s career in this way. We will continue on with a couple of Force Awakens episodes and whatever else we can think to do with Harrison Ford’s career.
Is this a “comeback” for Harrison? Morning Glory? I dunno that Harrison needed a comeback but it’s a surprisingly cool part for Harrison, the part of Mike Pomeroy.
We’ll try to figure out how underatted this character is PLUS we break down the character of rancher Woodrow Dolarhyde from Cowboys and Aliens. Indiana Jones and James Bond working together! That’s cool…right?
ALSO, we talk about some recent Harrison appearances on talk shows to promote The Force Awakens. Was he really drunk on Jimmy Fallon?
We begin with the best ‘Indiana Jones or Han Solo?’ debate ever on the Internets! Jason and Jeremy, from Radio Bastard podcast, joins us on this episode for said Han & Indy debates PLUS the greatest breakdown of Regarding Henry ever (because nobody has ever done it) – HEY! Did you know JJ Abrams wrote Regarding Henry?..yep. Will there be a Regarding Henry 2? yep… because we already wrote it.
Seriously, all kinds of awesome Harrison Ford inspired tangents throughout this. And maybe the best of all, after we Regard all of Henry we get into some great Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Indiana Jones 5 and Blade Runner 2, talk with Jeremy and Jason! (Make sure you check out their podcast Radio Bastard – Mikey says it wrong several times in the episode, it’s RADIO BASTARD!)
The 1980s of Harrison’s career (maybe the strongest decade of any actor ever) end with Indy being called “Junior” by Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Pretty damn good movie for Harrison and the world and we break it down.
We get it all in the one, River Phoenix works in a Harrison movie again, this time playing a young version of Indy instead of his son. Brody and Sallah return, Professor Jones is back, the hottest Indy Girl ever, Indy meets Hitler, more Germans, and that dude the drove a AT-AT on Hoth and told Darth Vader it was cool to come down to the planet now.
Once we get done with Last Crusade (sorry, it takes a while) we get through some recent Ford news including the Age Of Adoline trailer and some teaser trailer thingy with a R2-D2 Beach Ball and THE FREAKING MILLENNIUM FALCON!!
Harrison Ford drops back into a supporting role for Working Girl. This may be the point in Harrison’s career when he decides that going for more pop roles is what the public wants from him, so he obliges.
We break down the role of Jack Trainer, what it meant for Harrison’s career, and how Working Girl might have been the movie that won over the hearts of every women of the 80s. Plus: there’s 80s hair.
Also, you know we can’t NOT talk about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And we catch up with what Malcolm Ford is doing with his band, The Dough Rollers.
