Every January 1st the masses vow to improve their lives during the new year. I was no exception. My resolution was to watch every Alan Rickman movie I possibly could. I have been in love with him since Hans Gruber strolled on screen and took over the movie. If you don’t know which movie I’m talking about, shame on you.
I’ve already watched all the Harry Potter films and practically melted in my chair when Professor Snape swept past, his swishy, black robes billowing behind him. My love for Severus Snape runs deeper than the awesome actor that plays him, but that a story for a different post.
I signed up for Netflix only to find they only carried a few of his movies. How could that be? Don’t they know who he is? Thankfully, I have friends that graciously allowed me to camp out on their couch to raid their DVD and video collections to get my Rickman fix. Thank you Karen and Kody. I’m still not done with my list, not even close. The man is a machine with the amount of movies he’s been in.
Life has been busy lately, with getting my three kids back in school, releasing my first ebook, and writing a short story I hope to release in December. I haven’t had time to watch any movies. But that’s gonna change. Here is my list:
The January Man
