Joel Schumacher has passed away at 80. His career was hit or miss but he did leave behind some movies that we'll never forget.

Comedy icon Carl Reiner has passed away at the age of 98.

Some may argue, but I think his role in Ocean's Eleven stood out over most of the other, much bigger stars. I'll always remember him for that.

Dude created the Dick Van Dyke Show, directed The Jerk, and was Carl Reineroceros. Awards included 9 Emmys, 1 Tony, and the third ever Mark Twain Prize.

I've been informed I should check out him with Mel Brooks on their episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. I'll probably do that soon.

Ennio Morricone's gone, at 91, what a loss for cinema and for music.

What a legend. You could pick his 10 best scores and they would rank amongst the best.
