I was very sad to hear this news last night. :(
"Die Hard" is definitely my favorite movie in which he appeared; it's still one of the best action movies of all time!
He was also my favorite part about "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" -- along with the iconic musical main theme of the movie, which I love too. I don't care for the movie as a whole, but it has a special place with me because it was part of my childhood. And Alan Rickman's portrayal of the evil Sheriff was hilarious and unforgettable. xD
I'm not a big fan of the Harry Potter franchise, though I have seen all the movies, and I really admired his portrayal of the Severus character. From the first movie, he always made you feel -- correctly -- that even though he behaved like a villain, there there was more to him somehow. And indeed there was. His acting in the last movie especially -- when all was revealed about his backstory -- was touching and brilliant.
I miss Rickman at the movies already...2

He was my absolute favorite actor and I am beyond saddened that he is gone. I don't think he got enough credit for his work. My favorite is actually something that is not as well known as the ones you posted here, but I highly recommend it. It is called Snow Cake. Sigourney Weaver is brilliant in it as well... This is one of my favorite clips from the movie:
Some others that are really worth checking out are Rasputin, Sense & Sensibility, and Closet Land.
Also, check out this music video he is in. I would give anything to have had the chance to dance with him like that.
