#2

#3

I remember he went into this long diatribe about how LOST BOYS was a metaphor for butt fucking vampires. In turn Joel Shumacker went on to turn a decent franchise with Burton’s Batman into a gay, rubber nipple, cod piece wearing crap fest.


#5

Joel fucks up a lot of shit. His next fuck up is Phantom of the Opera.


#6

I love Lost Boys! its a fuckin 80s cult classic! Fun as hell movie. I dont care if QT doesnt like it. WTF? He mustve liked it enough to put it in the Dogs script.



I hate Joel Schumachers Batman movies but his other stuff isnt that bad.

With all due respect, but I think that’s a load of bullshit. He wouldn’t have written a movie like “From Dusk Till Dawn” if that were true.

Well, it has the girl from Brookside in it, how good can it be?

Kevin Smith put Phantoms in the Jay and Bob Strike Back script when he hated it.



Schumacher fucked alot of shit up but Phone Booth was great. Had a very Rear Window feel to it. Haven’t seen Veronica Guerin. I want to see Tigerland.


#10

Tigerland was dope actually. Even 8mm wasn’t too bad.



And yes I liked LOST BOYS and am not sure if QT likes it or not. I was just joking about the butt fucking vampires.


#11

Lol, so no-one knows?? Hehe :slight_smile:


#12

Haha, I thought that sounded too much like the Top Gun diatribe. Good one.



I was a big Corey Feldman fan. Call me nuts but I love him in Goonies, Gremlins, Lost Boys, Stand by Me, The ‘burbs, Friday the 13th, TMNT. His band was playin’ in a local club, I took my copy of the Goonies to get it signed. He just looked at me like I was nuts and said fuck you man like I was makin fun of him. His band sucks by the way.


#13

haha. I have heard his band sucks…hehe…should have stuck with the acting

Ha ha! Yeah - what a bitch. I saw him on that REALITY SHOW last year and he went out like a bitch. He’ll be lucky if they cast him in GOONIES 2, fucking frog boy


#15

Joel schumaker is a really good director, but he’s made some really fuckin’ gay movies. he fucked Batman for one.

But overall I think he has more good movies than bad.

A time to kill

Didn’t he do St. Elmos fire (it’s brat pack, 80’s corn, but I still like it)


#16

i liked Batman Forever


#17

I think Batman forever was okay, honestly though I think the only things that saved it were Jim Carey, and Tommy Lee Jones.
