Director And Writer John Hughes Died

John Hughes, the man behind the cam in such films as "Pretty in Pink", "Sixteen Candles", "The Breakfast Club", "Planes Trains and Automobiles", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "National Lampoon's Vacation" , and "Home Alone". John Hughes was also a contributing writer to "Animal House".

And those were just his hits.

If you were a young person living in the western world in the 1980s you were affected by this man.

He died today while taking a morning walk in Manhattan, and was fifty nine years old.

I only know this man through his films, and can only respond by saying - thank you for the incredible movies.

Warning to assholes: I don't mind if you don't like John Hughes, or if you have an axe to grind with me. If you don't have anything relevant to add - keep it to yourself. Any personal attacks - using this blog post as an excuse will be deleted - and I don't give a shit how long I've known you.

Molly Ringwold used to be Hot, or at least I thought she was back in the day.

16 Candles was and still is one of my favorite movies.
