Best Joel Schumacher movie?

It's unfortunate Joel Schumacher's legacy is tied with the worst Batman movie ever made as he was more than capable of making a good movie. Still, which of his films do you think is his best?

Your choice:

The Incredible Shrinking Woman (1981)

D.C. Cab aka Street Fleet (1983)

St. Elmo's Fire (1985)

The Lost Boys (1987)

Cousins (1989)

Flatliners (1990)

Dying Young (1991)

Falling Down (1993)

The Client (1994)

Batman Forever (1995)

A Time to Kill (1996)

Batman & Robin (1997)

8mm (1999)

Flawless (1999)

Tigerland (2000)

Bad Company (2002)

Phone Booth (2002)

Veronica Guerin (2003)

The Phantom of the Opera (2004)

The Number 23 (2007)

Blood Creek (2009)

Twelve (2010)

Trespass (2011)


8mm or A Time to Kill


Aside from Lost Boys anything with his name on it's a film I wouldn't like to see or just simply not interested, probably because the subject matters are about race or drugs I don't know what it is can't put my finger on it but I don't care or not interested in his work at all.


8mm and Falling Down (with honorable mention to D.C. Cab)


I like The Lost Boys, St. Elmo's Fire, and Falling Down.


8mm and Phone Booth


The Lost Boys, probably followed by Phantom.


That’s a long list of great movies.
Hard to choose.
