I think Schumacher's a pretty good director. As previously stated, Falling Down rocks and is one of the first DVDs I bought, along with Seven, before I even had a DVD player. Lost Boys and Flatliners are cool, and I actually liked Batman and Robin, I don't care what anyone says. I hated Batman Forever though. And I don't think I would like a Batman and Robin 2. As one movie I enjoyed it.
Plus, for whoever said he couldn't do a noir movie, I should point out he did 8mm. Which sucked, but was very noirish.
I was. . . otherwise engaged. . . during Phantom of the Opera, but I know the music sucked. Looked like it might have been very stylish, though.
