I think it's kind of fitting that a man famous for several sequels, most notably The Empire Strikes Back, is the second in the "rule of three" mythos.

I'd like to think of it that he is just permanently frozen in carbonite. RIP. :(

RIP. I watched Never Say Never Again last night, and Robocop II is a favorite as well.

Yeah, it was a neat little film although the twist was a little weak.

A very solid director who could could put out at least an average film. RIP.

Actually he is the 3rd in the "rule of three". All within 5 days of each other.

So sad. The man made some great movies. I might rewatch Never Say Never Again tonight in his honor.

This.

I was 14 when it came out and must have seen it a dozen times at the $1 theater downtown.

Don't forget his small part in The Last Temptation of Christ.. heh, thought he was good in it. I think I know who your talking about! When I saw him in the movie in 1988 I thought he looked familiar and on VHS, laserdisc and dvd I would always think he looks familiar.
But I never bothered to check the credits.
Thanks!

'The Film Flam Man' is probably my favorite film he did, I just watched that again a couple of months back.

Classic movie.

RIP Irvin Empire Kershner

He also did A Fine Madness with a 60s Sean Connery as a comedy.
