R.I.P. John.

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

This makes me sad sad he was in some movies that I fallen in love with over the years. i.e. The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Home Alone 1 & 2, Baby's Day Out (yes I admit it!), Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Beethoven (writer) and even Drillbit Taylor.

He had a fantastic way of merging comedy, some really tender moments and creating movies that stay with you and never lose that special place in your heart.

This guy was a talented man and I respected him so, so much. R.I.P. John, you will be missed so much (thank you for the wonderful memories). Always be in our hearts.

Fuck shit bollock arse twatwank!!!!!
That guy rocked.

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

what a shame - superb director who will always hold a special place with me.

It's really strange hearing this today too - I was gathering my thoughts for a review of Deadgirl, which could be considered a sort of extremely twisted coming-of-age tale, and figured I'd make some goofy reference to the man himself - now my timing seems a little ill.
Hughes will definitely be missed.

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

I was just thinking of buying all his movies and everything else that I watched in the 80s too.

If it wasn't for John Hughes, I never would have heard of Molly Ringwald.

RIP John Hughes. I wish he'd made a horror movie though.

RIP Mr.Hughes

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

I was heartbroken when i heard earlier today. He introduced me to the famous brat pack, i don't think i;d have this much of an appreciation for 80s films without him. Its rare for older movies to still appeal to most kids in current day. His movies definitely played some part in everyones childhood.  My faves have to be Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, and Home Alone.

R.I.P buddy. sad

That is sad i was a big fan !:o:(

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

What a bummer, I grew up with John Hughes movies. He had such a genuine insight about what it's like being young and all the turmoil that goes along with it. It never seemed like he was talking down to his core audience but had actual compassion for them. That's a pretty rare thing in Hollywood.

RIP

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

I heard about this and it was a total shock.  I know we haven't heard much from him in late years, but from Breakfast Club to Home Alone, he was the f'n man.  RIP

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

A legend and the best talent the teen subgenre has ever seen and most likely ever will. R.I.P.

Re: R.I.P. John Hughes

I was gutted when I heard this, I wouldn't have made it through my teenage years without him.  RIP   sad
