Irvin Kershner R.I.P.

Today the world lost Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, Never Say Never Again, and a personal favorite, Robocop 2. This followed yesterday's news that actor Leslie Nielsen passed away. This year has sucked. You'll both be missed.


  1. Yeah it sucks. Ingrid Pitt the other day too. Empire was far and away the best SW movie, didn't realise he'd done Robocop 2!

  2. yeah, while i'm not a big star wars fan by any means, i do like the original trilogy, empire being the best...i wanted to find a picture of him on set during robocop 2 but couldn't, figured people would remember him more for E.S.B. than Robocop 2.
