This Shit Has To Stop.

First David Bowie and now Alan Rickman...this is a depressing ass year. We lost both of them to cancer! This is unacceptable! You think after this, we find a newfound passion and force to rid cancer from the world? Cause I think we do. I think from now on rather than just focusing on one simple film an actor or actress who passed away made, I should talk more about just their roles in general. And while it greatly pains me that I cannot do much more than just remembering them from the films I love, I still feel as if I should do something for them. And in the case of Alan Rickman he's done surprisingly few movies and that bewilders me because he has such great talent and acting prowess that I really expected him to be in tons of films, I think he did just barely over 50 movies in his career as an actor which he started when he was in his 20s. I remember him personally in three roles, Hans Gruber from Die Hard which I love that movie a lot already but Alan Rickman elevates the enjoyment for me, Marvin the Robot from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy in which he is absolutely hilarious and is really the most important character in the entire film even though he is a depressed robot, and of course his most famous role as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films. This is THE role he will always be remembered for. And yeah, he's pretty damn great in those movies and I don't think anybody could play Severus better than him. I mean you just have to look at that one scene. You know the scene. Only the pinnacle of his entire character and quite possibly the most emotional moment in the entire series! Yeah that scene. Shit Alan Rickman could be remembered for all time by just one line that's how great he is! And God knows I am going to miss him. Always.
