Director Jon Favreau interviews Harrison Ford about Cowboys and Aliens.

Harrision Ford in Cowboys and Aliens

It has got to be said that Harrison Ford is looking old. In recent years he seems so distant in his interviews that I wondered if at was all about the paycheck and contractual obligations for him now. My bother was involved in a radio interview with Ford a few years ago (the lucky bastard). He told me just how difficult it was to actually record what was being mumbled from Harrision Ford’s mouth.

This seems to have all changed now. In an interview with Jon Favreau wgo, in Ford, is interviewing one of the stars of his new movie, Cowboys and Aliens, it seems that the old Han Solo charm is back.  Ford comes across as engaged and generally happy.

Spider-man is going to die

Some time in the next year I’m going to catch up on reading my pile of comic-books. One of those comics is going to feature the death of Peter Parker, otherwise known as Spider-man. Issue #160 of Ultimate Spider-man has the web-slinger finally buying the farm at the hands of his nemsis, The Green Goblin.
