Alan Rickman, the English actor, is best known for playing the complex Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films. However, his body of work was diverse. He played everything from a villain in Die Hard to a wandering husband in Love, Actually. One of our favorite Alan Rickman movies is Truly, Madly, Deeply. This film was a British fantasy music drama where Rickman plays a ghost! We won’t spoil too much of it but it is most definitely a must-watch!
If you want to experience a throwback within a throwback then you cannot miss Annette Funicello’s movie, Back to the Beach. This 1987 film combines 80s humor with a parody 60s look and feel. Annette was a gifted singer and actress and worked on a number of “beach party” films in the 60s along with Frankie Avalon. Annette and Frankie worked on Back to the Beach as a parody of their earlier movies. Completely hilarious and quirky, this is a fun film and it’s available on DVD on our site.
