This week has sucked when it comes to celebrity deaths. They come in 3's, and I don't want to think about any potential third death. David Bowie and Alan Rickman within 3 days of each other hurts like hell.
Today is the third Friday of the month, so I'm posting my favorite Alan Rickman movies. He could be a star, he could be a supporting character.
1) Harry Potter. I'll group all 8 here. His work as Prof. Snape, especially that last scene, was phenomenal. The first time I saw the Sorcerer's Stone, his portrayal of Snape was exactly how I pictured it in the book. The attitude, the voice, the robes. Everything.
2) Love Actually. We never find out how his character and Emma Thompson's figure out how to move on from where they are.
3) Bottle Shock. He plays Steven Spurrier to devised the blind tasting in Paris, and goes to Napa to get California wines to use in the contest. He's a wine snob, and comes off as such.
4) Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. I think he stole every scene he was in. "Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas."
5) Sense and Sensibility. We know him as a villain, but he could play other types of characters. I almost didn't recognize him because Colonel Brandon is more quiet character to the villains he played.
