Harrison Ford can't act. He's a one trick pony, but it's a great trick.

Seriously, compare Han Solo to Indiana Jones to Deckard to the Fugitive guy. It's all just harrison ford being harrison ford.

Casting Harrison Ford is like casting Sean Connery, you cast him because you want the character to be like that guy rather than the other way around.

My favourite Sean Connery role was The Hunt for Red October, where he became the world's only Russian with a Scottish accent.

My favorite was The Highlander, where he was a Spaniard with a Scottish accent. in scotland. With a Scott who had some other crazy "non-specifically foreign" accent.

My mortgage costs more then my disposable income. Disposable income is what's left over after i pay all my bills, right? so comparing my mortgage bill to disposable income is a fallacy at best...i can choose to allocate more funds toward my mortgage or more towards being 'disposable'... It all depends on lifestyle.
