Flatliners ★★

A fun cast (though it has that 90s problem of "and one girl!"), a concept that maybe isn't satisfyingly explored but still manages to be an asset, and Joel Schumacher doing Joel Schumacher things. Seriously, I adore these sets and ridiculously Extra™ lighting choices. I know I'm probably one of the only people on this site who considers "Directed by Joel Schumacher" a good thing, but I make no apologies for it. And I'm fairly convinced I would have been bored to tears by this movie if it weren't for him, because the writing just really wasn't up to par with everything else about it.
