For all he did to make us hate his characters on-screen, it only made the world love Alan Rickman, everyone's favorite villain, even more. So it's only fitting to honor the life of Rickman, who has died at 69 after a battle with cancer, with a movie marathon of his most-loved films – in chronological order – this long weekend.

Re-watching Die Hard last month, as I do every Christmas, I was struck, as I always am, by just how astonishingly good the late Alan Rickman is in this movie.

The subject of holiday movies is a touchy one. In a time of Christmas cheer and sharing glad tidings, conversations about which festive film is best can get heated.

This is a case for John McClane.
Die Hard director John McTiernan is headed to the slammer for a year, having lost his appeal to have his 2010 prison sentence overturned for lying to the FBI in a wiretapping case, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Like a scene out of a crime movie, the filmmaker, 62, pleaded guilty to hiring celebrity private investigator Anthony Pellicano to wiretap film producer Chuck Roven after they both worked on the movie Rollerball.
McTiernan had remained free on bail while he appealed the conviction (which was about lying, not wiretapping) to the U.S. Supreme Court. The highest court in the land has now declined to review the case.
