RIP John Hughes

Postby knapplc » Thu Aug 06, 2009 6:30 pm

I'm shocked. This guy was the bee's knees in the 80s and 90s, giving us some of the best teen movies of all time. I was a teenager when The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles came out so maybe this is hitting me more because of these movies, but I'm really bummed by this. :,-(

NEW YORK – Writer-director John Hughes, Hollywood's youth impresario of the 1980s and '90s who captured and cornered the teen and preteen market with such favorites as "Home Alone," "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," died Thursday, a spokeswoman said. He was 59.

Hughes died of a heart attack during a morning walk in Manhattan, Michelle Bega said. He was in New York to visit family.

A native of Lansing, Mich., who later moved to suburban Chicago and set much of his work there, Hughes rose from ad writer to comedy writer to silver screen champ with his affectionate and idealized portraits of teens, whether the romantic and sexual insecurity of "Sixteen Candles," or the J.D. Salinger-esque rebellion against conformity in "The Breakfast Club."

I grew up watching his films, probably watched Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off thousands of time.

59 is pretty young really. RIP John Hughes

I think Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is my favorite Hughes movie.
