    Rickman, yeah. Perfect.

    As a kid, it was the first time I remember seeing a flick with the bad guy as smart or smarter than the good guy. A great role made even better by a great actor.

    Yeah, that's it. Good point. ... And in real life, that heist probably comes off. Back then, I mean.

    Two great movies on opposite sides to the violence spectrum

    Raiders of the Lost Arc

    Raid 2 - so much action and violence. So much. Watch with subtitles. It’s a beautiful movie for what it is. The stunts are amazing.

    My favorite moment of Rickman's is the Asian Dawn speech. You forget how funny he is in that role.

    Didn't realize Comedy Central was still doing roasts. Next up: Bruce Willis. Taped last night, to be aired at the end of the month.

    Man. There's a lot to work with, roasting him. That'll be fun.

    Really surprised Willis hasn't landed on a cable or streaming series.

    He has barely been on TV except for Moonlighting, because he's too busy making sucky movies.
