Two of My Favorite Alan Rickman Movies

British actor Alan Rickman, who played the role of Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films and portrayed memorable villains in Hollywood movies, has died aged 69, his agent said on Thursday.

Majority of my geeky friends will naturally point to Rickman’s portrayal of Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” movies.  While the small remainder will immediately recognize him from “Die Hard.”  Although both memorable roles that show the range of Rickman, I’m a fan of two different performances that again, show his range, from drama to comedy. 

If you’ve never seen any of the films below, I reccomend you correct that at your earliest convenience. 

Something The Lord Made (2004)

 Galaxy Quest (1999)
