Joel Schumacher, the writer-director who came from a world of window dressing and costume design to bring a singular style to films including St. Elmo's Fire, Flatliners and a pair of Batman movies, died Monday. He was 80.

Schumacher died after a yearlong battle with cancer, a representative announced.

It's sad, that that's what he's going to probably be best remembered for, although a lot of what he did was under studio mandate to make the franchise more campy and kid-friendly, so they could sell more toys.

Looking at his filmography, Joel had some good movies under his belt.  I liked Falling Down and Phone Booth

R.I.P. Joel Schumacher.  May you enjoy an eternity of never hearing fan boys complain ever again.

At least he apologize for BATMAN & ROBIN, other directors wear their garbage proudly.

RIP

I actually liked Batman and Robin.  It felt like a big budget update to the old Adam West show. 

I don't know why people make such a big deal out of the nipples on the suit either.  It's not like they really stand out when you're watching the movie.

Y' can't miss 'em.  
I saw BATMAN AND ROBIN new in the theater.  It's not great, but silly fun.   He said something to the effect of why wouldn't you put nipples on the batsuit?
I thought BATMAN FOREVER was better, though there used to be a clip at YouTube where JOEL SCHUMACHER did assert that "VAL KILMER is an a$$hole..."

Good night JOEL.  You made films we'll remember.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
