Personally, i think Burton made the best and most beautiful gotham city I had ever seen. Schumacher destroyed the franchise.

Wow, two of my big favorites, Sleeper, which as a kid, maybe 9 or 10, I saw twice at the theaters cuz it was so funny, and falling down, one of Douglas’ best too.

Nice run Mr Schumacher! Congratulations

Falling Down is one of the best movies ever made. It's even more pertinent given the current times we live in.

His adaptations of John Grisham's "The Client" and "A Time to Kill" will always remain my favorites. I don't think I would have seen any better director to work on doing legal thrillers and dramas with such passion.

Severe lack of diversity in his films!

"Jules, y'know, honey... this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge".
