"Today's episode. We're going to discuss the latest film and TV news. Okay, a bit of sad news today, earlier today was revealed that Joel Schumacher, the director has died than toast butter. Yeah Joel Schumacher who was eighty years old, died of cancer this morning in new. York, city I! Think a lot of people probably know him best for his mid-nineties Batman movies. He directed Batman forever and Batman and Robin. He added a lot of the Campinas of the atom west days back into the Batman Franchise after timber was done with it before Christopher Nolan sort of relaunched the whole thing I. think a lot of people look at Batman and. And Robin as one of the worst Batman Movies and sort of I guess blame Schumacher for that I kind of have always been a little bit of a defender of his not necessarily for Batman Robin, but for Batman forever movie, that I think is actually really pretty good and very stylish, and just a different type of Batman movie been a lot of people want, but one that I think is just as valid as any other version so. I think for a lot of people. Joel Schumacher. Probably for the worse associated with those movies, but I think his career with so much more interesting than just directing a couple of Batman movies. In the mid nineties, he started out as a costume designer, and then he wrote the Whiz which I didn't even know until I was researching his his IMDB and stuff for writing this obituary, but the Wiz was black retelling of the wizard of Oz that came out in the late Seventies. I had no idea that he wrote the screenplay for that. He directed state almost fire which. which was a big Brat pack drama back in Nineteen Eighty five. He directed the lost boys. The vampire thriller flatliners WHO's really really great at finding young up and coming actors who would go on to be some of the biggest? The biggest stars in Hollywood sweet, a real eye for casting. He directed some John Grisham adaptations and movies like phone booth, and the Phantom of the opera I mean he was. He was one of those directors that you can never really pin down. What exactly he was GONNA do because. He was constantly pushing himself in different directions sort of expanding his Palette as a storyteller so. It's a sad day to see him go. I would also I linked to in this in this obituary linked to this vulture profile of him from last year, which is an incredible read talks about having somewhere in the range of ten thousand to twenty thousand sexual partners over his life It is amazing. Read I would definitely if you're interested in Joel, Schumacher at all, you have to read that these so. Check that out. I wouldn't say a huge Joel. Schumacher fan I I really liked Phone down was a film of his. I really enjoyed I. Think I'm a big fan of Batman and Batman forever, then I think a lot of people are He's one of the directors. I feel like kind of like Tony Scott in that he always kind of went big and bold in contemporary, and didn't really care to. Try to make things he'll timeless. They they kind of you know like he swings. Courts Chris. What do you think of Joel Schumacher? I like a lot of his movies, even kind of like. Both is Batman movies even Batman and Robin I. Think has a place in this world you know. He started out as a production designer, so he was very much a stylist. He's very much sometimes. Over substance guy but I appreciate that I like his little weird touches like He. He loved Neon, and it's all over his movies I. One of my favorite things about. flatliners original, which he directed is is Kiefer Sutherland has this. Art Deco apartment he lives in and all the lighting is fluorescent lighting tubes. They're all. Attached to the floor into the ceiling and it's like. No one lives like that like no as an apartment like that because it's in that movie because you just tell them Schumer was like this looks cool. Let's do this and I appreciate a filmmaker WHO's like? He doesn't give a shit about talk about like being realistic, just wanted to look good, and you know I appreciate stuff like that. And I like autos movies. I liked eight millimeter I was a big fan of that, which is like a really scuzzy studio. Pick like when you washed. It feels like a really. Filthy film and it's amazing that that was the actual blink studio movie. You almost feel gross watching that movie. Yeah, exactly and it's kind of a big deal that like he had enough clout to direct a movie. That was that nasty and was still like you know a a mainstream film, so yeah I like a lot of his movies. Brad, what is your feeling on the filmography of Joel Schumacher? Roughly the same and I the the Batman movies he did still do hold a special place in my heart, you know. I Love Batman forever. Growing up simply because I was a huge Jim. Carrey fan as a kid and seeing him just cut loose and go crazy as the ridler. was so much fun not to mention the fact that Tommy Lee. Jones is just having a blast in that movie as to face. And just the way they worked together as great, even the Tommy Lee Jones famously did not a quote. Unquote Sanction Jim Carey's buffoonery as a famous story was told about the the tension between them, but yeah I mean it's A. Where I had a vhs I would wash it so many times in that there's a couple of friends and I who will just randomly throw out lines, but the third chaffey said during the what what is your favorite line?

"And many more are in this film including Alex Winter who would go on to appear in bill and Ted's excellent adventure. Joel Schumacher is the director the screenplay credited to Jeffrey Bom Jenness Fisher and James Jeremiah's now I should should mention before I started the lost boys film. I've probably seen Oh probably six or seven times and in all of those times I was never quite a fan of it but I haven't seen it in a while and given that I've been watching a lot of eighties movies obviously lately will this film when me over in the end well. I guess you'll have to listen to the upcoming review to find out now in this film. The main plot involves a woman play by Diane we S- named Lucy Emerson and she's a divorced mother of two teenage sons Jason Patric plays Michael and Corey hayme places younger brothers Sam the end up relocating to this strange oceanside California town called Santa Carla which is filled with this mix of Pumpkin hippie cultures the residents of Santa Carla Arlit taken to calling it the murder capital of the world there are deaths and disappearances occurring on an increasingly frequent basis kiefer sutherland plays David who happens to be this leader of local motorcycle gang that has been terrorizing the community and one of the members. This sexy female named Star played by Jamie Gertz has taken a mutual liking to Michael the new Guy Michael wants to get closer to star but that proves to be a risk David ends up making him a member of the gang through this blood ritual that ends up turning Michael into this half vampire. He's not a full vampire until he makes his first kill and with stars help along with brother Sam and a couple of Comic Book Geeks with Vampire Knowledge and these Rambo esque personalities named Edgar here and Alan. Obviously that's a shout Edgar Allan Poe. Those two guys are called the frog brothers play by Corey Feldman in Jamison neulander. They get together. They team up with Michael to try to find a way to reverse the curse. Now the origin of the lost boys toward film it started back in early nineteen hundred five. That's where the screenplay was written by First Time screenwriters Janice Fisher and James Jeremiah's ended up getting scooped up for the wapping total these four it's time before hundred thousand dollars listen that script soon got taken to market by its independent purchasers and it garnered the interest of Warner Brothers who ended up securing the North American and some of the international distribution rights now the first person in line to be the director of the loss boys was going. Be Richard Franklin. I've talked about him. Just recently an film called Road Games of also talked about him in cloak and dagger he did hitchcock and efforts including those films and psycho too but all of that changed Richard Donner ended up coming on board as an executive active producer when Warner Brothers got into the distribution rights and he ended up slotting himself as potential director instead for the LAS boys now at that time the age of the main characters in that original script were young boys. They ranged anywhere air from the age of eight three eleven years old Richard Donner took over this because he felt he could do this film what he did for his popularly hit from nineteen eighty five the goonies however the production schedules started to slow down and Donner ended up looking at other scripts and he became much more interested in shooting the script shame black script for lethal weapon instead and just stayed on board on the production side of things he initially looked at Mary Lambert director film she was a music video director of some note including a lot of Madonna songs things but they ended up having creative differences and so he ended up in the end turning over the reins to Joel Schumacher Joe Schumacher A self-described longtime vampire film fan he just happened to have directed saint almost fire for Richard Hundred Wife Lauren Schuler Donner and that was the connection that got him on board and one of the first things that Schumacher wanted to do as director was to escalate the ages of the characters to being in high school because he wanted to give these vampires as sexier edge that he thought would make for a much more captivating film for today's audiences including the turning of the character of star the female character played by Jimmy Kurtz from a young boy into the sexy older teen and that raised the stakes for this tug of the war for the heart of the main vixen any brought in another screen writer named Jeffrey Bom to rewrite the entire script to make it racier edgier than just this goonies Meets Dracula original script that had been pitched. You know that script was intended to be a g the or P._G.. Rated family film but now it was going to escalate into much more late teens into early adult fare and in this way Schumacher created a film that would be instantly familiar not only to the teens of the nineteen eighties who would go out and see this but with elements fifteen films from the fifties and sixties and seventies that would also connect with older generations without completely pandering to them and it would be edgy enough to appeal to the adults in the crowd now although it has its following especially from those who enjoy the T._v.. He shows that borrow from the style of mixing humor and camp and horror. You know puffy. The Vampire slayer takes a lot of inspiration from the la-z-boys. The loss boys of course the title is Peter Pan Allusion the flying children. They never grow old well. That's all part of that. Peter Pan Myth that was much more prevalent in that original script before it got revised. It's an interesting but it's a fairly silly vampire flicked. It really can be taken all that seriously. Even during the moments where it Kinda tries to be but all in all perhaps it's fun for those who regularly feed on Teen Click films and not too serious Har- and it may be a little bit to goofy and contrived to please viewers who might be expecting more than easy baser pleasures now for genre lovers I would say it is still a delight those looking for more than occasional jocularity and candy presentation may find the story doesn't quite hold together to the very end especially when it descends into either gory or slapstick antics that aren't quite as satisfying to observe whereas the buildup but I'd say the best thing about the loss boys are all of those bells and whistles sports very solid soundtrack. Yes sumptuous location shots. All of these exteriors were filmed in Santa Cruz especially in and around the famous boardwalk boardwalk there and the more rural areas that are dense with natural fog. You have wide open and constantly moving cinematography from one time Martin Scorsese favourite cinematographer Michael Chapman and this very effective score by veteran Thomas. Hamas newman the city council of Santa Cruz the allowed the filmmakers to shoot out there on the streets and they take full advantage of it but the only condition that they met late into the production is that they did not want them to use the name of Santa Cruz because this film crowned the city several times in its story as the so-called murder capital of the world and they felt that that would hurt its reputation and tourism industry especially since they were some serial killing some famous ones that happened. They're not long before now. A colorful cast does flesh out these within characterizations you have memorable bits for Kiefer Sutherland the Corey's of the two coreys if you prefer him and Feldman Bernard Hughes who plays the grandfather in this film is a delight although they had originally looked at other actors Keenan Wynn and John Encouraging for the old man role but they were a little too ill and frail at the time to come back to films a many in the cast were relative unknowns prior to the loss boys with the exception of Corey Feldman who gave the movie and is part in particular the goonies cred that they were originally going before before the age the characters forward and this was the first very first of many collaborations between the two coreys they would go onto star or appear in seven films together over the following ten years and then they would occasionally work together after that from time to time for T._v.. Projects including a T._v.. Show called the two coreys that capitalized on their popular pairing now for the look of the film Joel Schumacher and his production team concentrated on costumes and sets and props that would vote this history throughout the decades because the vampires presumably live forever so they should carry along with them those things that speak to them during the totality of their existence as immortals and that does Lynn well to the film. It's not only a product of its M._T._V. generation in its execution Asian but it seems somewhat without a clear distinction in time with its actual design especially as it pays homage to a lot of older vampire films and older teen films now at its core the loss boys is a rite of passage story about the allure of so-called bad boys but but ultimately the danger of becoming when yourself especially when you succumb to the rampant peer pressure of high school popularity your have icons from James Dean to Jim Morrison they're paid all mosh to in this film the Ladder Jim Morrison with recurrent current use of the doors people are strange which is done on the soundtrack any now classic cover by Echo and the bunny men and there's this poster prominently displayed in the Vampires layer that shows us how much Jim Morrison and Jason Patric actually do look alike and and if you think about it both Jim Morrison and James Dean in both cases they were the victims of a live fast die young attitude that saw them burn out before their time of course the real lower to the gang vampires is that you can live fast Austin die young well. Actually you won't die. You won't ever die but you will continue to be so called bad boy's life but that continued rebellious life comes at a cost of losing one's connection to family and of harming innocence which for for anyone with a conscience makes it not an ideal proposition in the end toward the end of the loss boys. You realized that the Vampire Gamut is to make an even bigger family but to do so would mean having to bring aboard more predators of the innocent so that they could all be together gather in the era of AIDS and the AIDS scare in the eighties at an all time high the notion of losing one's family values to do something that ends up tainting the blood with infection is in the subconscious of a lot of films. This film ends up returning the story back act to the family values the good old family values of the Reagan Bush years in the final years of the nineteen eighties now with its music video style editing and it's attractive actors a lot of heartthrobs here a solid soundtrack a moderately he positive critical buzz that it had at the time the film would end up going on to be a decent hit at the box office debuted at number two at the box office in its first weekend of release. It was just behind the debut a big high-profile debut of a brand new James Bond in Timothy Dalton for. For his first film in the bond series called the living daylights it made over thirty two million dollars at the theater on an eight point five million dollar budget so it was hit and it would prove to get even more popular over time with the release of other Popular Vampire Properties that audiences go back and check it out and that resulted in it becoming a classic of its genre and for its era of the nineteen eighties. Perhaps the biggest thing that may have hampered..

"But do you think of patents patent as the new Batman? I saw this. I'm kind of down for it. What is that these economics, right? Yeah. Not your thing. I mean I, I like your right.

Yeah. Ben Affleck was the what happened someone went to bed African said, you just don't want to do this. They wanted a younger guy, I think. No, I think that that's part of it. He they wanted a younger guy and also he just wasn't working for them. You know it wasn't really been afflicted. He did it in two movies. The Justice league. It didn't work the first or second time you're out. They, they wanted to go younger than don't want. See you. Yeah. It really who wants that guy. Anyway. Then Aflac I mean he's a good actor to just, you know, sometimes you don't fit the role, right? And the thing is, if you don't fit the role, then you shouldn't get a second second shot at it didn't work. So then you're out. Let's see who do I like is the best Batman. Michael. Keaton was good. Christian bale was good. My favorite was, obviously, it wasn't the, the movie Batman, but the TV show, Adam. Adam west. Absolutely. I if I had to pick a live action when it's probably Michael Keaton for me. He's, he's my favorite. I like Batman and Batman because he was it wasn't. It wasn't the movie Batman. It wasn't a serious. It was very, very campy, if you watch the TV series Batman from the sixties, it was one of those shows that was made for a kids, but made for Delta's. Well, there were tongue in cheek secret double-entendres there were there were like a jokes or inside things that only would appeal to adults that would go over the kids heads. And let's face it. Adam west was actually pretty funny, even though he didn't mean to be the way he would deliver his lines. He was hilarious. So I don't think they try to capture that in the in the movies and the film. But and there were different directors to who is the Batman that had with a cod piece. So. What was that Clooney's? So it was the first Batman in terms of movies, anyway, was timber, and did two movies with Michael Keaton. Right. And then after that, I think there was a third movie that was with Val Kilmer, instead of Michael Keaton doing, like seven or eight Batman. Yes. And then after that George Clooney. I think two of them, Robin. Batman forever. And neither one of those is very good. Those are the ones that hit the nipples on the bat suit. That's Joel Schumacher. Batman. Yeah. They he succeeded. Was -cluded the gay Batman. Yeah, I think he definitely Clooney's come out and said he played him as a gay character. That's what he was written like to him. Schumacher. That's why that's why. And then and then I mentioned Christian bale. So Robert Pattinson. All right. Well, maybe I guess he'll do good. Yes. Seems like he's been he hasn't done a lot of big movies ever since the twilight one. So most people know him for that, but he's done a lot of good art house movies. Like smaller releases the not a lot of people get to see. And he's, he's a great actor, but he the brooding Batman, another Bruening Batman. So they got the dark

Such a big deal about the nipples on Batman and Robin. And yet they left them off her like there was some nipple confusion in her in her costume. And I read about it and nineteen ninety seven when the movie came out, and it's all that I could concentrate on it did have and I'm not it's not from a sexist point of view. But I just like how the two dudes both at like, very defined nipples. She was sitting next to him with you know, what she was a Barbie doll right yet. Just fuck and high heels to so it just didn't hit. There's a lot of things wrong with that movie. We've gone over a couple of so far. But I don't like the way they handled it nipples. Can I say that say that it's probably when it comes to the bat suits, the nipples is the most famous thing which again shot Joe Schumacher. I mean, an absolute fucking Fum the greatest fumble of the ball of all time with in with with the Batman movies. Batman have a buck crack in his suit like a really well-defined buck crack because Batman had dip -als. But you did. And and a very because in Batman and Robin.

I I did two years, and the reason I left these go back for the second year. It was a full time course at a great first year was I didn't audition about summer, and I got this role about his angel and I thought okay. So I'm here to learn how to approach character to take a script apart and find relevance or me as an actor in these roles base the ultimate to get work as an actor an actor. And so I got off of this opportunity to do this. And I thought I won't go back for the second year. So I did two years on the TV show, which was amazing training to work with incredible Irish actors like Tony Sweeney. And then I did a play in London. Another small part filmed in Dublin based on the play those an actor in loans, and who came to see me in American actress came to see me in the play, and he was doing the film, and he spoke to the director, I met the director and cast in that film, wasn't a very good film at all.

It wasn't a huge industry the industry the right size heard that when when Joe's cutting its gathering tiger look like those glorified audition. Video calling ten minutes. Ten minutes to make the studio any money but made your career. Joel was very open in the room, and he was cutting out together. And there's directors I heard of that we're going into a local heritage desires kid. It was ended who's supposedly decent and on. It's a business like most major top end of most businesses. There is an element of fear. Fear compels people your breeds competition and all that kind of love no difference than maybe more. So in Hollywood. So I think I capitalized on the fear of a lot of people who are like what we don't want to miss them. So someone throwing money out of an errand so much money in the first five years. I really did. It was insane went from her. She hasn't dollars. My first film to two and a half minute. My third, and I was twenty three just like, you, you particular. I feel like when I look back at what happened there. I think of someone like Makaay that Schumacher. Similarly, kind of helped with time to kill like you stand for that time when.
