Miserable news about Ian Holm, his final speech to the surviving crew of the Nostromo in Alien, is one of my favourite scenes from Cinema. His Bilbo Baggins in LOTR was brilliant casting and superb performance as well.

I'm genuinely upset about Ian Holm. Alien is without doubt my favourite film and he is just wonderful in it.

Shite news about Ian Holm. He's been memorable in many of his roles.

Alien, Time Bandits, Brazil, Fifth Element, the good Tolkien trilogy (plus the other trilogy which had some good bits, but y'know).  And that's just the sci-fi fantasy geeky stuff - he's left quite a legacy behind.

For me, it's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the problematic adaptation of From Hell for which I will most remember Ian Holm. I know neither of those films have the best of reputations, but I very much love them. Especially Frankenstein. That'll be my "tribute watch".

Holm was pure class in every role. Even when he was actually Derek Jacobi. RIP.

Aw, he was brilliant. See you, Holmie, you'll be missed.

Joel Schumacher. Made some cracking films.  And Batman & Robin (which Bear will be along to defend shortly).
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

No need.  History has vindicated him already.
