Poll Suggestion: Joel Schumacher: A Look Back (In Memoriam)

Say what you want about Joel Schumacher but his legacy will not be "falling down" with his sad passing, his directing credits exceeds the "number 23" but this poll focuses on his theatrical work, the famous and yeah... even the infamous.

In homage to Joel Schumacher, which of his contributions to film-making did you most enjoy?

The movie is at least as relevant now as when it was released. D-Fens is neither a "villain who has a point" nor a "politically incorrect underdog who kicks ass and gets the girl", it's much more complex than that. The movie never justifies his actions but acknowledges that his anger is justified.

I don't think I've liked any of his movies that were supposed to be good or well made, but I did enjoy Batman & Robin, a triumph of basing an entire picture around bad puns.

I just learned he died due to this suggestion. Bad news.

I was writing an obituary for Schumacher (in Ukrainian) and it struck me that the guy worked in practically every possible genre out there. It also struck me that I've seen fewer movies of his I was actually interested in, despite he might as well be a candidate for one of the most favorite directors. When he strucks a chord, he does it brilliantly. 

Also, St. Elmo's Fire (1985) is 35 this very month, on 28th.

I don't really know him, but I really like The Lost Boys (1987) & Phone Booth (2002). I didn't know that it was him who direct those movie until now.

It would be a lie to say that this doesn't fill me with great satisfaction... it's my first HP with the new layout... glad to see I'm still in the game.

Thanks BB!

ElMo,

Congratulations! Although I knew that your poll qualifies for the IMDb Home Page, I am happy and somewhat surprised that the IMDb editors chose it. It's long overdue that you have a poll featured on the IMDb Home Page.

I didn't make many "Memoriam" polls unless I had a personal appreciation for the deceased. as a fan of "Car Wash" (yes, he wrote the script) and "Falling Down", I wanted to pay tribute... I think I had the HP in mind but it's not what motivated me in the first place. Still, it's good to see a poll of mine in that HP... looking forward for number 24 in November or December lol
