R.I.P. Joel Schumacher, director of Batman Forever and The Lost Boys


I did post work on both of these back in the 80s with Joel and he really was a sweet guy. It was kinda weird to be sitting in a chair in a post suite and he'd come up behind me a rub my shoulders and say stuff like, "Ohh, {Badmoodman}, you work out! How can I work with you more often!?"

He also did "A Time To Kill" in between his two Batman movies, and it was pretty good.

You did post work on Batman Forever back in the 1980s? So the movie was shot with post-production work going on for years before its 1995 release date?

Dunno if the casket will have nipples, but I do know that everyone will be standing around the grave after the officiant has finished speaking.  They'll stand around, wait, maybe play "Amazing Grace" a few more times.  Eventually, finally, the casket will lower into the ground, shoehorned uncomfortably into the third act.

It was such a troubled production, even the space-time continuum refused to cooperate with the shooting schedule.

I liked Lost Boys, Flatliners and 8mm. All good solid movies. Number 23 was ok, I always felt it somehow could have been better but was good for what it was. And Falling Down, holy shiat. That one is one of his best though gets tougher to watch every passing year.

Yes, I even liked Batman and Robin as it was the closest theatrical version to the comic origins and TV show (after the Adam West movie of course), completely over the top goofy popcorn fun, much like his debut Incredible Shrinking Woman.
Rest in peace, guy who made some great movies.

The Lost Boys is a quintessential 80's masterpiece. The 2 sequels are an abomination.

He made some good films, but his Batman flicks were not among them. I wish I could find the exact quote, but he clearly had nothing but contempt for "comic book movies" and it showed.

/Almost fell asleep in Batman Forever
/Hated the trailer to Batman and Robin so much I haven't seen it to this day

I hate his Batman movies, but they have clear authorship and aesthetic. The man was hired to make the movies look and feel more like updates of the campy 60s show, and he did an excellent job of that.

The fact they suck comes down to the producers and the studio deciding to go back to that aesthetic when Burton had already injected that same camp into his two movies (especially Returns) in a much more subtle and satisfying way. They wanted to make friendlier movies to attract an audience that had already responded enthusiastically to the cocktail of nihilism and camp that the franchise established.

He was a good filmmaker who had his talent and vision maligned far too often because he was very good at doing something exceedingly short sighted.

From the boobies it sounds like he was also a creep which is a much better reason to malign him if one feels so inclined.

Well, no, I didn't make that clear. The first two were in the 80s, then the nipple film. Had forgotten I also worked on 'A Time To Kill' the next year.

He had a few good films, but mostly schlock. And his Batman films weren't just bad Batman films, they were horrendously bad as merely *films*.  Anyway RIP nipple guy, you'll sadly be remembered longer than millions of good folks more deserving, but that's the shiat sandwich we call life.

Dude put together a pretty solid filmography (Lost Boys, Flatliners, and Falling Down are all still very enjoyable).

While not an auteur, he was a remarkably successful cinematic journeyman.

The Batman suit controversy will be his legacy among weirdos who can't seem to figure out that there are movies made that aren't about superheroes.

I certainly wouldn't put Batman and Robin in a list of the top ten worst movies of all time. It's bad, but it's inoffensively bad, and it wouldn't be so much fun to continue to make jokes about it if there wasn't something endearing about it.

It's not even the worst Batman movie. BvS has to be the absolute nadir, with Dark Knight Rises being the next worst. At least B&R didn't take itself seriously.

One of his flicks that seemed to get woefully overlooked was "Tigerland," the movie he made about soldiers in their last weeks of training before deploying to Vietnam.

Flick was a who's who of some of today's character actor mainstays (Collin Farrell, Michael Shannon, Cliff Collins, Shea Wigham, Nick Searcy, Cole Hauser, etc.).

Another one of his that was a lot better than it had any right to be was Phone Booth.

The Lost Boys and A Time To Kill are excellent films.

EdgeRunner: It's not even the worst Batman movie. BvS has to be the absolute nadir, with Dark Knight Rises being the next worst. At least B&R didn't take itself seriously.


BvS is pretty bad except for its production design depicting Batman himself and his digs, with Irons as Alfred.  How cool was that tunnel under the lake, and the glass house?

And the solo Batman fight to rescue Supe's mom was wonderful choreography, with some nice Frank Miller DKR eggs thrown in for good measure.

I know all that kind of stuff can't pave over the fundamental flaws of a terrible script, but it can still make for fun nerd viewing if you're not taking things too seriously.

I liked Dark Knight Rises.  Some of the time compression was bad, but after all the psychological baggage of the Joker, you can see why they opted to go with a more physical villain.  And Hathaway was amazing.  YMMV.

I've never actually watched B+R, because it looked too silly - like a bloated 90s production trying to recapture the Adam West Batman flavour of the 60s.  Sometimes it's ok to avoid stuff just because of the trailer.  By all accounts, I'm not missing too much.
