The Age of Adaline (USA, 2015)

Okay I know I've talked about my disappointments with the sequels plenty, and some of you may know that I have my own ideas and headcanons about the future of the Skywalker family that has nothing to do with the one d*sney created. BUT, every time I see Anthony Ingruber (who is an AMAZING actor) doing his own thing I feel personally attacked that he wasn't involved in a more decent version of the ST.
(pictures taken from Anthony's Instagram page) Just look at this guy. Not only does he look like Han (for those who don't know, Anthony played young Harrison Ford in the Age of Adaline, having been hired bc the director saw his impersonation of Han Solo he did on YouTube), but he also resembles Anakin, with the curly blond hair and the blue eyes.
I wouldn't have wanted him to play Kyle or anything of the sort, but it legitimately infuriates me that they picked Adam Driver as Han and Leia's child when he looked nothing like either of them PRECISELY since this kid was there and up for it. He could have been Kyle's other brother, ya know, the decent one that cares for his parents and is Poe Dameron's best friend, Bail Organa Solo, even Skywalker if he should feel like it, since he's also very close to his uncle Luke.
Anyway, I could ramble about my headcanons about this character DLF were too big cowards to create for days on end, but I won't. I just wanted to share my frustration.

Solo would’ve been better if the following things happened
Anthony Ingruber played Han Solo
Make it a mix between Ocean’s 11 and The Good The Bad And The Ugly.
No Darth Maul and no Qi’Ra
Han is mentored by Beckett and it makes him the callous and cold smuggler we know him to be in A New Hope. Their relationship is similar to Fast Eddie and Vincent in Color Of Money
Make the focus be about Han as a character and Han’s relationship to Chewie and Lando
Han and Beckett sell everyone out and when Lando offers Han more money, Han shoots Beckett and helps Lando and Enfys Nest and when Enfys insists that he did it because he’s a good man, just have Han say “I did it for the money”
Han wins the Falcon from Lando at the end and ends with Han and Chewie flying to meet Jabba
Solo wasn’t really a bad movie, I think it is a fun movie with great potential. The problem is they focused more on the future and not in the now, a movie about Han Solo does not focus on Han Solo and it’s not necessary at all and the story is very forgettable, and it really is just a cash grab. Alden is completely forgettable, they did not want an actor to emulate Harrison Ford and that’s the problem. Donald Glover was emulating Billy Dee Williams, while also doing his own thing. I really think hiring Anthony Ingruber would’ve been the best possible thing they could’ve done. He looks and sounds like a young Harrison Ford, plus he worked with Ford in The Age Of Adaline. He could’ve easily channeled the charm and swagger of a young Han Solo. With Alden, I just don’t see it.
There is nothing remarkable about the movie and the only two characters who stand out as 100% only enjoyable to me are Enfys Nest and Chewie. The rest of the characters just feel like unnecessary adds or barley passable imitations.
They made the movie about everything BUT Han Solo and their attempts to make Han a good man just betrays the character we knew in A New Hope. The reason why I chose to cut out Qi'Ra is because Han Solo having a love interest in my opinion was a pretty poor choice. Han Solo was always implied to be a loner before Leia came into his life. His name is SOLO. Han is a criminal smuggler, if anything he would've been sleeping around like Captain Kirk, especially Han in his 20's. Hell, in a deleted scene for ANH, Han basically has a small fling in the Cantina. As a matter of fact, showing that he was this intimate with someone before Leia takes a little bit of the mystique away from their relationship in later movies. I also felt like Han and Leia worked because they were the only ones who would get under each other's skins, but with here, Han and Qi'ra are just kind of in a relationship at the beginning and it's like "oh we don't even know these people" seeing him so deeply affected over another woman makes Han Solo comes across as a little bit more vulnerable than the Han we met in A New Hope.
This whole movie shows a far more human Han, he's shown to be somewhat empathetic and sympathetic of others. He gives too much of a damn, there's a time or two in Solo where Han chooses to do what's right as opposed to what's right for him, he does jobs without looking for a real reward and that's just not Han Solo. In this movie it's clear that Han has a moral compass, whereas in the original trilogy, he was a lot more morally ambiguous and it was through Luke and Leia's influence and place in life that he began to become good. In A New Hope he had to constantly be reassured that he was going to be preciously rewarded. This completely destroys Han's arc in the original trilogy as this movie implies that Han was always a good guy.
And the reason why I added Han working with Beckett to selling everyone out is because it works for his character. Han has been for himself no matter what until he meets Luke and Leia. I cannot see Han pre-ANH ever willingly doing the right thing
while it's Lando who stops Han and convinces him, "you'll get your share" and Han just shoots Beckett, cause that's the trash Han used to be before the disaster Skywalker Twins came along
I really feel like no one on board understood Han Solo as a character and their inability to make a Han Solo movie about Han or any aspect of Han’s character is what ultimately failed the movie.

The Solo Movie: An unpopular opinion
Read if you want
I am finally sitting down to watch the Solo movie. I’ve been against this film from the start, mainly because when I saw the actor who they chose to play a young Harrison Ford, I just... couldn’t find him believable. He doesn’t look like Harrison Ford to me, and it frustrated me beyond reason because -
Anthony Ingruber looks more like Harrison Ford. And he proves his talent in Age of Adeline and with his Youtube impressions of Harrison Ford. He would have been perfect.
He auditioned for the role, and I don’t know why I’m surprised they passed him up. He is way more talented and better for Han. Even as I’m watching it, I don’t find Alden (the actor they chose) believable. He plays a character, but is it Han?
Personally, I don’t think so. They call him Han, but he doesn’t look or sound like the Han I know and love. It really takes me out of the story and makes me very disappointed that they chose Alden and not Anthony. This is obviously just my opinion, and it doesn’t count for much. Alden would have made a fine character, just not Han.
happy birthday Anthony!

If you loved hearing Anthony Ingruber play as The Joker/John Doe in Telltale’s Batman, you’re going to love hearing him voice the mischevious speedster, Johnny Quick, in Lego DC Super Villains. I’m hoping this is a stepping stone towards voicing many great DC characters in the future.
I finally watched “Solo” and honestly it’s a great film, but Anthony Ingruber should’ve been cast as Han. He would’ve made the movie perfect.

So I had a dream the other night that I was going to Supanova (a mini version of comic con we have here in Aus), and then one of the guests cancelled and it was annouced they'd be replaced by Anthony Ingruber and I was so excited I woke up
And the thing is, it took me an entire week and a search on the official website to realise that it was a dream and quite frankly that is the most devastating dream I've had
Add salt to my wound
I am now legit pissed at Disney for the Solo movie.... I'm still gonna see it but that's not the point... point is ANTHONY INGRUBER didn't get cast and I was salty enough about that.. AND NOW I FIND OUT JAMIE COSTA EXISTS 😭😭😭🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤬🤬 WHAT THE LITERAL FUCK DISNEY..... THIS GUY YOU CAST HAD BETTER BE ONE HELL OF AN ACTOR TO NOT EVEN LOOK LIKE (HARRISON D. FORD ACTUAL PERFECTION™)

Friendly reminder that Anthony Ingruber previously played the younger version of Harrison Ford’s character in the film Age of Adaline.
Friendly reminder that the above YouTube video shows the entire world just how well Ingruber can imitate Ford’s mannerisms - it features him doing an impression of Han Solo’s introductory scene in Episode IV.
Friendly reminder that he was openly discussed as being in the running to take the lead in Solo.
Friendly reminder that Ingruber somehow didn’t get the part, and it went to someone who looks/sounds/acts nothing like Ford.
Friendly reminder that Disney/Lucasfilm doesn’t give a solitary shit about these classic characters unless they can use those iconic names to sell the public something utterly unrecognizable.

"#Both VAs of John and Bruce have voiced how much they want them to kiss and stuff while on camera/interviews#Both were also directed to act like the other was a love interest too" - !?!?!? I've seen a lot of videos of Anthony high key shipping and throwing out there how much John loves Bruce, and how he was told to play the funeral like a "first date", but do you got the sources for these tidbits of Troy also mentioning stuff like that? :O
Most videos including Troy I found on Tumblr, which are harder to track down, but this one here from Youtube has both Anthony and Troy playing the game with some dude! The explicit part where Troy encourages Bruce to kiss John starts around 1:12:10. There’s prob other parts here too but I have a TERRIBLE memory ahh I’m sorry!
