Blade Runner 2: The Suckening

I've noted before in this space that Harrison Ford was dangerously close to using up the store of good will he'd created during his early-'80's streak of pretty good performances in fantastically entertaining movies. That said, at least his Golden Globes performance could be chalked up to the fact that he carried a beverage on stage with him. Last night's Super Bowl intro had no such excuse.

For those who missed it, Ford recited some faux-Seussian lyrics in front of a green screen which looked like scribblings in the margins of Peter Max's high school history notebook. Teddy Geisel, a Masshole himself, was undoubtedly watching from some higher plane and preparing thunderbolts. I feel as though Harrison is one more Hollywood Homicide away from playing out the string as a celebrity seat-filler at award shows, and is hanging on to his glorious past by his fingernails.

As a wise man once said, "Indiana? Let it go."
