R.I.P. JOEL SCHUMACHER …. as of late, he has been a bit of the butt of the joke when talking about some of the stinker projects that he put out. But let’s not forget, this is the guy that brought us st. Elmo’s Fire, the Lost Boys, Flatliners, and a couple of my favorites A Time to Kill and Falling Down. A Hollywood icon, gone today at 80. Thx for keeping us entertained!
RIP Joel Schumacher – director of some of your favourite movies (whether you know it or not).

– Falling Down (<— seriously good)
– A Time to Kill

RIP Joel Schumacher. Thanks for bookending my 90s with beautifully dark stuff in FLATLINERS and 8MM. Thanks for properly introducing me to Colin Farrell and Matthew McConaughey. And thanks for showing me that comic book movies could be as colorful as their characters. pic.twitter.com/CGKcfHSk59

RIP Joel Schumacher director of 8mm, one of my all time favourite films and of Batman Forever, one of the worst pieces of shit I’ve ever seen.

The Last Of Sheila is a great and unique picture. It has costume design from Joel Schumacher and production design from Ken Adam. It was directed by Herbert Ross.
And it was written by Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, inspired by real parties they threw for their friends. https://t.co/gKqJTv78iG
