in terms of where his career plateaued, the critics often said, it was when he played the role for tom clancy's jack ryan in patriot games and clear and present danger, that was where his stocks declined as being a bankable movie star. there was a brief recovery for air force one but he has been phoning it in since with his roles (Indiana Jones 4, star wars the force awakens).

but just looking at that period for patriot games and clear and present danger, the films to follow in that period were: sabrina, what lies beneath, six days seven nights, a definite decline

There was also "the Fugitive". Some of his movies since haven't been great, but I wouldn't say he was phoning it in for either Indy 4 or The Force Awakens. Indy 4 was disappointing, but he wasn't. I also thought he was great in TFA with the same swagger and everything.

i always just assume Ford is drunk lately but i'm starting to think hes' just slow and old. When he was talking at the Globes it's like, "alright grandpa, talk faster". It was bad.
