He's the only reason 'Robin Hood' was worth watching, IMO.

'Cut his heart out with a spoon'

Why a spoon cousin?

Because it HURTS more you TWIT!

He is the only reason I watch that horrible film. LOL!!

Has anyone seen Bottle Shock? It's set in the 70s in California and Alan Rickman plays a greasy, grumpy, English-French wine snob. ;D
I can't believe I missed this thread before.  I {heart} Alan Rickman!  As someone said earlier, he made Robin Hood watchable. Best.Sheriff.Ever.

I ADORED him in Bottle Shock!  No one else could have mastered his look of pure disdain and shock upon realizing the California wine had won over the French wines.  And of course, in response to Bill Pullman's "Why don't I like you?", Rickman perfectly delivers, "Because you think I'm an a*****e. I'm not really. It's just that I'm British and you aren't."  :-* :P :D

I cannot find a quote though I have Googled for it, but I remember reading that Pauline Kael, the late and very acerbic movie reviewer, absolutely eviscerated "Robin Hood" with the exception of Alan Rickman's performance.  Her comment was along the lines of "I don't know what movie he thought he was in, but it was an infinitely more entertaining movie than 'Robin Hood:  Prince of Thieves.'"

Every year, my husband wants to watch The Santa Clause. Then I insist we watch Galaxy Quest, because Alan Rickman = Happy Christmas to Me.

(Col. Brandon... wow. Also liked him lots in the hairdressing movie, where he has scissors tattooed on his sole.)

You know, I have never watched "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.  Sounds like the only thing I'm missing there is Alan Rickman.

I do love him in Harry Potter and Love, Actually.  I just love his droll sense of humor.

With the wonders of YouTube, you can probably find the good (Alan Rickman) bits without having to watch the whole dreadful thing.

Although, some of the bit parts were played by very good English theater actors. I especially liked Mrs. Little John, when he says something to the effect of "I don't want you to join the fight and get hurt," and she says "I've had children, what do YOU know about pain!"  8)

If you want to see him at his most unctuous and oily try the Barchester Chronicles.  He is just loathsome  as Obidiah Slope.  Just wonderful acting
