Here are twenty of the best Harrison Ford movies to watch

Since Ford was back in the limelight and worked harder than ever, the year 1923, Shrinking, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny all coming out soon, many people will remember that the Harrison Ford movie rules. So don't worry about him and his work if you are not familiar with him. That's your guide to Ford.

I saw everything Harrison Ford has ever done. It became my love when my parents went to watch Air Force One in theater. As an adult, I went through his filmography because I liked the energy that Ford was putting into his work and I love reading the entire filmographies that I like most. All that to say that I’m qualified to make this list and tell the people what Harrison Ford films are they supposed to get started with.

After the fact that Ford has been returning into the limelight and worked harder than ever with 1923, Shrinking, and Indiana Jones coming out soon, there’s a lot of people who are will remember that Harrison Ford movies rule. And if you aren’t so familiar with him and his work, don’t worry. I want to help you find what Ford is like. So lets talk about twenty movies you should see if you get into his filmography (which is impressive) and discuss what they mean for those who just start to get into the Ford movieography.

(Paramount Pictures)

You may think The Force Awakens was the first time that J.J. Abrams and Harrison Ford worked together but you would probably be wrong. The two actually worked together on Regarding Henry, abrams second film, and as a writer. The movie is about a man named Henry, a ruthless lawyer and an infamous family man. But when he suffers from gunshot wounds, he’s struggling to remember who she is and start to transform her relationship with his family for the better.

That’s on the list, because we rarely see more dramatic performance from Ford. Hes either shooting up a scene, being funny, or playing an iconic character we know and love, so in the rare cases when he is just giving us a quiet and dramatic performance, it’s worth it.

What Lies are Narrow.


Should I have seen this movie on theaters as a girl? No, not? But I did this because I love Harrison Ford, and this psychological thriller still piled on my list. From the legendary director Robert Zemeckis, What Lies Beneath brings together Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer as a married couple that is met with mysterious voices and unhidden truths about their relationships and what Dr. Norman Spencer has done in the past. This movie still does terribly wacky little things, and I love it.

The age of Adaline is a matter of age.

The thornet is going to attack you.

If you watched my interview for Echo 3, you know I like The Age of Adaline. The movie has a never aging Blake Lively, and there’s a storyline in which a young version of Harrison Ford gets married, and falls into love, and when his son returns from home, years after years of age, he’ll meet a woman that he loved, all these years ago. It’s chaotic, but Blake Lively is rocking in awesome clothes; I loved all the press stories about Ryan Reynolds who tried to show Blake Lively who Harrison Ford was before filming. It’s a requirement.

Foxes of the 20th century are employed by the flies.

You know Harrison Ford, a sex symbol, isn’t the same as anybody else? This is because they didn’t allow him to do more romantic comedies after working at work. It is oddly perfect to see what the female gaze is versus what the male director thinks is. Harrison Ford changing his shirt in the office, but the shot isn’t glorifying any other muscle? He is charming, great, and so is his movieography. And yes, I went to the Staten Island ferry while listening to Carly Simon to feel like Melanie Griffith.

(Warner Bros.

You know that movie your parents would talk about a lot when they spoke about Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones. I’m that one. They have the right to talk about it, it rules. The movie is about a man named Richard Kimble (Ford) who is wrongly accused of killing his wife and is on the run for it. While in the filmography, many films depict someone getting killed and Harrison Ford dealing with it, but, hey, they all worked together to master the art of the film The Fugitive. Which begs the question, when will we finally see Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones fight again?

Blade Runner 2049.

(Warner Bros.

There is no reason that this ranking is too late, so you need to look at Blade Runner before you see it. I particularly like Blade Runner 2049. I think this is a perfect use of Rick and stops the questioning of his true identity, while also giving us a new dynamic to consider in the actor’s of The Regie… it is beautiful, compared to the original film and still maintains the gritty world Ridley Scott gave to the audience, and I love going back in this world.

A new hope is created in Star Wars.


Now I know that people are likely to be crazy because this is so far back, but that is my opinion’s the weakest of the original trilogy. We love the heroes from this movie, but there are better examples of the ways for Han Solo to be a character in the context of a movie. And so it’s here because it is because you can still watch the new Hope if you don’t see it, but because this is the main thing we get to have with these characters is not only that simple and fun. Even if it does have one of the best Han Solo moments, like that when he is dressed like a storm trooper.

The Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones are among the biggest cities in the world.


I’ll say that right out of the gate, The hottest Harrison Ford is on its feet in a movie and that’s no short feat. The movie itself is messy and tops the list of the most popular of Indy movies that are out last (the most recent is Kingdom of the Crystal Skull obviously) but is a big one. We see Harrison Ford and Ke Huy Quan playing together. And while Winnie Scott is a terrible character I don’t really like, this movie is still fun, and I love Short Round and Indy very much.

(Warner Bros.

The classic of Harrison Ford is focusing on the court case movie phase. Presumed Innocent has so many twists and turns that it is so fascinating to watch. According to Alan J. Pakula, the movie is about Rusty Sabitch (Ford) and his investigation into the rape and murder of their colleague Carolyn Polhemus (Greta Scacchi) with whom Rusty has a relationship. Unlike his series of 1990s thrillers, this is worth it because it’s a wild ride.

(Columbia Pictures)

I remember watching this movie in theaters, so I remember being a fan of how crazy it is in a fun way. Harrison Ford plays Joe Gavilan as a real estate agent because he doesn’t earn enough money to work on the homicide department and his partner, Detective K.C. Calden (Josh Hartnett) is really a yoga teacher. This movie was built in the late 2000s, and it seems quite a lot more different then it seems to me that you really like it, man isn’t it bizarre to see what we did about Harrison Ford in that time, and this film is really funny, really you can say that.

(Amount Pictures)

When someone tells you that Harrison Ford isn’t funny, watch the frittata scene from Morning Glory. The Morning Show is my upcoming show. It is about a news station and Harrison Ford is on one all time, but it’s truly funny and a highlight of how great Harrison Ford is when directors let him have fun.


(Warner Bros.)

That might be because I loved Jackie Robinson growing up and would read books about him, but I really loved 42. The story of Robinson’s career at baseball was a true success. It was a performance from Boseman and his energy worked extremely well with Harrison Fords. Most biopics feel stale, but 42 really says that you should not forget why Robinson changed the world and get to see Boseman shine. But it’s still a matter of time, as it’s worth the watch.


(Paramount Pictures)

Harrison Ford had a time when he just said my name a few times in a bunch of films, whereas Witness is one of the three most famous. The plot is simple: The young boy (Lukas Haas) sees an attack when he is traveling with his mother Rachel (Kelly McGinnis) and the police give them protection after the death of Harrison Ford. You know if its got some hot yard work from Harrison Ford. The movie is truly good, but it earned a nomination for the Oscars for Ford, and he’s a must see!


Because of this movie, we almost lost out on Harrison Ford as Han Solo. George Lucas worked with Ford in American Graffiti, and didn’t want to work with the same actors on the same level. Luckily, the casting agent knew Ford would be a perfect candidate for Han Solo and orchestrated a little bit of a push to get him in the audition room. And honestly, I would be mad if it hadn’t worked out, because while I love American Graffiti as a movie, Ford isn’t the top ten of it. The movie is a classic but also a must-see for fans of Lucas and Ford.

A single-engineering airplane is the Air Force.

(Columbia Pictures)

You see, that’s the first movie I remember seeing in which Harrison Ford was shown. I am certain that my family watched Star Wars or Indiana Jones, but I was too young to remember it. Since my father and mother couldn’t find a babysitter, and I went on to watch Air Force One in theaters. Ford plays the President, James Marshall, who is on the Air Force One side with his family when terrorists threaten him and fight for his family and the plane until the end?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought Harrison Fords Han Solo back to me in such a way that fits with the character in the best way possible, and was very emotional and enjoyable. He’s trying to figure out where he is in this fight as an adult, and clearly he feels guilty for his son Ben (Adam Driver) being cause of this new fight. He’s still struggling to be linked to Leia (Carrie Fisher) as well. Does this sound so good? And I just wish I got more of her as this Han Solo was because it was perfection.

Empire will step back.


The original trilogy is certainly the best and most famous, it’s true. Even though it’s not my favorite one, Empire Strikes Back is the beginning of Han and Leias relationship, and we are able to see them grow and fall into love. It all begins at the time when we didn’t know whether Han will survive or not. He is charming but can still flirt. His annoyance is great because he can’t even think about Leia. That’s what makes Han really fascinating for me. Also come on, its the moment when you’re the wife of me and I know the time you must love it.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark are dead.


Considering its film perfectly flawless and cinematography standards, Raiders of the Lost Ark made us all fall in love with Indiana Jones. I visited the cinema last year and was able to imagine the coolest thing that happened? I had never seen it at home, and seeing Indy fall in the snakepit was even frightening. I loved all the time. As on paper, this movie is the best of Indiana Jones, not really my favorite but it is to say that I don’t like that. I do it very much. I am one of the many people who loves my favorite.

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.


Surprise! This is my favorite Star Wars movie, and it’s my favorite Han movie. In a movie all about Han questions a human soul’s feelings, and Leias feelings mixed with him just frankly confused by everything and the perfect. Return of the Jedi has a lot of moving parts but Han is really our guide through it because he sort of explains it like the audience. It’s too chaosy for him, so you can’t stop laughing about it. I love Han and Leia, I know that you are perfect.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were the last to the cross.


It’s my favorite Indiana Jones movie. I’ll fight anyone for it. In the second film of the original trilogy, Last Crusade, we talked about the past of Indys. When River Phoenix played a young Indiana Jones, we got to see how he got his chin scar and learned that the dogs name was Indiana and that his real name is Henry Jones Jr., that comes to us from his father Henry Jones Sr. (Sean Connery). It’s just really fun! The fact that Harrison Ford is one of our best friends is easy to watch.
