I heard about Richard Donner’s passing today. He lived a great life. 91 years old sounds way young, he is one of the best directors of all time. 2 Superman Movies, Lethal Weapon’s 1-4, The original Goonies and become a producer of the X-Men film series alongside his wife. He’ll be missed dearly. Thank you, Mr. Donner for all the memories. The grandfather of superhero movies.

Sooooo many films of his I grew up with that still resonate with me, Superman being the most that always gets an annual viewing. A great director whose films still have such an impact on pop culture.

Donner is still the best director to understand how a superhero movie should be made. He accomplished it so well with the first Superman in 1978 and then got screwed over by the studio (AKA the Salkinds and Pierre Spengler) immediately after (even though he had already filmed half of the sequel).

Thankfully he went on to make such other classics as The Goonies and the Lethal Weapon franchise, while the Salkinds and Spengler accomplished literally nothing else after they failed with what THEY wanted Superman III to be.

Very glad to see that Hollywood still honors the man that brought us so much joy and excitement in cinema.

You know I feel so glad about Mr. Richard Donner but at the same time sad, because if Christopher Reeve was still alive, I would like to hear the gratitude towards Mr. Richard.

I've always dreamt that I'd be at one of these Q&A's just to first thank him for making the best Superman movie Hollywood ever had. Second, to ask him what would have been his and Tom Mankiewicz's vision for Superman 3 if he had the chance to do that. We already saw his vision for the Part 2 with the director's cut.

RIP Richard Donner!! ❤️😢

RIP: Ricard Donner did at alot and even produced movie i loved, man with a filmo like that, he lived a great life, left an impact for sure a good impact didnt do batman like joel schumaker, but he took it seriously of superman. These are the movies i watched of his so far: 1961 X-15, 1969, Lola, 1976 The Omen, 1978 Superman, Superman II (2006 director's cut), The Goonies, Ladyhawke, Lethal Weapon, Scrooged, Lethal Weapon 2, Lethal Weapon 3, Maverick also watched the show for the movie and roger moore lover, not the best but watched the roger moore parts, Assassins, Lethal Weapon 4, Timeline, 16 Blocks, i might just watch all his stuff looking at his wiki, also the stuff he produced is i watched is: Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981), Delirious (1991), Any Given Sunday (1999), X-Men (2000), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), his tv shows i watched is great as well having watched: im gonna watch dead or alive cause im a steve mqueen fan, being a spy lover i watched The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 60s, Perry Mason, Get Smart, The Fugitive original show is really good, The Wild Wild West, the sixth sense tv show, i watched a few episodes on youtube, and they dont have it anymore nothing to do with the movie starring bruce willis, but should have, if the sixth sense 1999 was an adaptation of this show it will be great, Kojak i watched pretty cliche, but i like telly sevalis character and he should be played by vin diesel in a movie about corrupted cops in the 60s, i would give money for that, Tales from the Crypt and crytkeeper im gonna continue watching halloween month. But man left a legacy and thats great, man gonna rewatch lethal weapon in honor of him all 3 today, and then some other movies of his i havent seen in a longtime or not at all, and maybe some interesting shows and maybe some of his produced movies, there might be a gem in those, check it out, great eye....... great vision....... great director, look at the world though his lens when watching his movies.
