7 Recommended Joel Schumacher Films

Bat Lost

In honor of the talented late filmmaker Joel Schumacher, I thought I’d take a look back at his varied career and single out 7 of his movies that everyone should see (or rewatch).

  1. Falling Down- Michael Douglas stars in a film that has eerily become more relevant with each passing year.

 

  1. The Phantom Of The Opera- It may not be on the level of the original Broadway show, but it’s still one of the best movie musicals of the past 20 years. The soundtrack is addicting too!

 

  1. Tigerland- A criminally underrated war drama that launched the career of Colin Farrell.

 

  1. Phone Booth- Speaking of Colin Farrell, Schumacher reteamed with the actor in this intense thriller that largely takes place in a single titular location.

 

  1. Batman Forever- I put this on here because the film was a big deal to me as a kid in the 90s. It just hit all the right buttons for me. While it’s flawed to be sure, I still find the film to be a fun sequel with a killer soundtrack and a deeply overlooked performance by Val Kilmer as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

 

  1. St. Elmo’s Fire- A classic coming-of-age Brat Pack movie.

 

  1. The Lost Boys- It’s not hard to see why this is one of the most beloved vampire movies. And that cast!
