I guess it all comes down to which one is your favourite character. Are you a SW or an Indy fanatic?
Ford is best recognized as Jones, and is probably the best role of his career. IMHO he was better at Jones. Although Solo was the tough, cool rogue character in the first SW film, realistically anyone could have pulled that one off, but from the start, Ford made Indy HIS character.
If you ask me, any role Ford would do he would, with all his effort, give justice to the role... in the first place John Travolta was the first choice for Han Solo and Tom Seleck (is my spelling right?)is the first choice for Indy.
Indy all the way!
Now what if Dr. Jones and Mr Solo came to blows. I bet if it was whith guns Han would blast Indy away but thats gest caus I think Han is a better shot. If it was man to man no guns or anything Jones would punch the crap out of that space jocky and let him cry for his mommy.
intergamer, I could not agree more with what you just said.
And yes, I think Ford does act better as Indy. If you can call it acting, the indy films seem more like documentories on a day in the life of Harrison Ford. Ford IS Indy!
Indy by far. Indy has much more character and charisma then Han and his character is much more developed. But thats only natural since Han wasnt even the main character in Star Wars.
While we're on the topic, in Temple Of Doom when Indy chases a couple of Thugee guards, only run into a large group of them and is chased back, do you think this was an homage to Star Wars when the exact same thing happens to han after he chases some Stormtroopers?
I prefer the Indy films to the Star Wars films, but I think I maybe like Solo's character more than Jones... Only very slightly though. There are moments when the two overlap, in spite of all the attempts to keep the two characters completely different, so could I have a bit of both please?
Harrison Ford is so well known as the man in the hat, despite me liking Star Wars over Indy, I still know Ford as that relic hunter as do most people I know. Do you think he'd be as well known had he not played the part of Indy? I highly doubt it but you never know....
Anyhow, he was great in ANH and ESB as Solo, but something seemed amiss in RotJ. I like RotJ for Luke whereas I watch the other two for Han. He's great in all three Indy movies though and my vote is for Indy
Also I noticed that scene in ToD when he runs into all the Thugees and Han had run into all the Stormies. I pointed it out to my dad who had just noticed how he was just going to blow the Thugees away as he does the Cairo Swordsman. That's two "easter eggs", if you can really call them that, in the same scene. One of the best in the trilogy.

I had to leave the forum at TheForce.Net because of that reason and it became TOO political. Itís not even a STAR WARS forum anymoreÖ itís a platform for the far FAR Left agenda with some Spoiler-rants. There are some leftists here, but not nearly to the extent of TheForce.Net.
We have some heated debates here, but the mods reign in the political hot-talk. TheForce.Net is a perfect example of why.
As long as I am a mod here, I will never let the Raven become like the Jedi Coucil.
Now...back to the topic "Ford - Better as Indy or Han?"
