Yippee Ki Yay, Alan Rickman (R.I.P.)

Alan Rickman, known to my kiddos as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies, died today. His “Hans Gruber”, from Die Hard, has to be in the top 10 movie villain list of all time, right? I mean, who else was as charismatic?

My short list (totally made up on the fly): Heath Ledger’s Joker. Darth Vader. Denzel’s Alonzo Harris (from Training Day). Hans Gruber. Keyser Söze.

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman.
