Have you seen Alan Rickman in Die Hard? Damn, but I wanted those bad guys to win. (Of course, that just makes the hero more heroic, which was fun, too.)

Of course, a good script helps. "Shoot the windows!"

You know, I know I've seen Die Hard. And I even remember enjoying it. But it was so long ago, long before my Alan Rickman fetish reared its obsessive little head. So I honestly don't remember him in it. Maybe I need to put it on the Netflix list...

Love, Actually: B+ -- well, if you're a sucker for lightweight, manipulative, well-written romcoms. Rickman: B. He probably would have done better but Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, and Billy Bob Thornton as the President of the U.S. walk away with this one. On the other hand, the scene with Rickman and Rowan Atkinson was just about the most excruciatingly funny thing ever filmed.

Blow Dry: B-. Would have been C but anything with Rachel Griffiths in it gets an extra point in my book. Rickman, playing the world's top competitive hair stylist (I swear I'm not making this up): A. A very silly movie that's totally worth seeing for Rickman's performance (and Griffiths's).

Truly, Madly, Deeply? Very different side of Alan Rickman there.

Truly Madly Deeply was stupid (it didn't help that I watched it with 2 women who thought it was the best film in the world evar! and had seen it three times). And AR had a very silly moustache, which made things difficult.

An Awfully Big Adventure - I think it deserves a reasonable grade, but AR is fabulous (his initial entry unspeaking on a motorbike had me sliding off the sofa onto the floor).
