    OMG! So sad. RIP.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I loved just about every single one of his movies. Very sad news. Far to young to die.

    RIP John Hughes

    The legendary director of many 80's hits died today at the age of 59.

    Cause of death was a heart attack.

    The last movie he directed was 1991's Curly Sue. It was OK.

    I liked his movies well enough, but I was never really a big fan of him as an auteur.

    Re: Director John Hughes dies at 59

    I grew up watching these films. These were my middle school high school years: Ferris Bueller's Day Off', 'Sixteen Candles' 'The Breakfast Club', 'Weird Science' and 'Pretty in Pink'

    He created the brat pack and made a fortune putting them in his films. He was reaching out to my demographic and we loved every minute of it!

    Those were good years to be a teen. Farewell John Huges

    For those who get the Travel Channel, they are showing Vacation tonight. Not sure if it is a tribute or just a coincidence but it's fun to go to Wally World

    Dusty, you summed it up for me right there.

    Ferris Bueller is my all-time favorite movie. I grew up with all the others as well. They don't make teen movies like these anymore. They were quirky, fun, quoteable as all get out... They were just awesome.
