August 7, 2009

john-hughes-RIPJohn Hughes, film maker died yesterday.

As someone who’s “formative years” were firmly in the 80s I would like to thank John Hughes for making the best movies of that time.

The Breakfast Club, is the seminal movie of teenage angst and one of the few films I will watch every few years, fantastic writing and outstanding performances from the Brat Pack and a movie that everyone should watch.

Pretty in Pink always makes me cry! Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Weird Science when Kelly LeBrock became every teenage boys dream, Sixteen Candles, She’s Having a Baby, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Uncle Buck, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation….

(for all these I try to forget he also produced Home Alone 1, 2 & 3)
