John Hughes

John Hughes passed away today after a heart attack. He was 59.

Okay, I'm not a huge John Hughes fan. Not really. Okay, maybe I hate to admit that I like some of his movies. I don't know. Stop pressuring me.

I know that I should say something about a filmmaker whose films have come to represent the 80s for a lot of people. I grew up with a lot of his work, and I still have a soft spot for the films of my childhood. All I can say is -- so long and thanks for all the angst.

I dislike when you comment anonymously. Leave a fake name if you like, but it's easier to respond to someone who has a name. Keep the foul language to a minimum.
