Do you have something against Harrison Ford? I could not believe that the star of the upcoming thriller Clear and Present Danger was not on the cover of your “Summer Movie Preview” issue ( 224, May 27). Ford is one of the biggest movie stars around, and I think it’s time that you faced that fact.

Once again I am reminded why I will be renewing my subscription. You really outdid yourselves with your “Summer Movie Preview.” As always, you never fail to impress me — and all of my friends. Keep up the good work!
I was so disillusioned with your picture of Elizabeth Taylor from The Flintstones. The most beautiful woman in the world has the ugliest toes. But thanks for the sneak preview look at the movies.

Regarding your article “The Liars’ Club: Common Fibs of TV Viewers,” I have one to add to the list. How about “I understood the final episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.” I’ve watched and loved the show for years, and I have seen some confusing episodes, but none of them lost me as much as the last one. Is it just me?
I usually agree with your reviews of various movies and television shows; however, I strongly disagree with the negative comment made about Rob Lowe’s performance in The Stand. I had read the novel before watching the miniseries, and I felt, surprisingly enough, that Lowe’s characterization of Nick Andros was the most faithful portrayal in the series. I especially liked the chemistry between Lowe’s Nick and Bill Fagerbakke’s Tom Cullen; their scenes together in part 2 were some of the best in the whole series. I had never been a fan of Rob Lowe or his work, but if his performance in The Stand is indicative of things to come, I will look forward to his future work.
I knew you wouldn’t be able to let the absurd verdict in the Michael Bolton copyright case go by without taking yet another shot at Bolton. As evidenced by the comments from the critics, they gave up any pretense of fairness. Those of us who love Bolton’s voice, singing style, and music couldn’t care less what the critics think. Stop picking on him!
Your jury on the Michael Bolton case proves a point. Music critics who have no use for Michael as an artist have enough insight to believe in his integrity. Also, Michael’s earring is in his left ear.
Correction: In our “Summer Movie Preview,” Disney’s Angels in the Outfield was listed with an incorrect release date. The movie will be out July 13.
