Just watched The Mosquito Coast. I find it pretty good movie besides the box office disaster (as found written in Wikipedia).
Few things I want to mention about the movie: -
- We see Harrison Ford working at a fridge junk pile at the beginning of the movie. This immediately made me think about the Indy4 escape. I wonder if Harrison is thinking "hmm more fridges, like in The Mosquito Coast" when reading that script. He also goes into a fridge (although it's a gigantic one) in a few scenes.
- He also says "nucular blast" in that movie. Yep, "nucular". I think he also mentions that in K-19: The Widowmaker, which I think he also pronounced it as such, though with that one he has a thick Russian accent. Because all Russians speak in English.
- Mosquito Coast: "Get off my land!" = Air Force One: "Get off my plane"
I like Ford's acting in The Mosquito Coast. Did he win best actor for that? Because he really put a good show, his delirious mumblings, him taking care of the family, turning delusional, getting being angry at his sons, sorrow at the loss of the "fat boy" (gotta watch it to understand), etc. I don't see him as "Indiana Jones or Han Solo" I just see him as the person he was supposed to portray, he does it really well.
