John Hughes passed away yesterday. He was a writer and director and was responsible for many of my favorite movies. He was THE director of 80s teen movies. "Sixteen Candles"....oh that Jake Ryan, "Pretty in Pink"...Ducky!, the classic "The Breakfast Club," and one of my all time favorites "Some Kind of Wonderful"...they were always for you. Uh! I love love love his movies, especially since I do have a slight obsession with the 80s. I didn't even know he was behind "Home Alone," "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," and "Ferris Beuller's Day Off." What a talented guy and only 59.
