I grew up watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off...and watch Home Alone every christmas. I love his movies.

My friend Bob and I used to go see the new John Hughes movies opening weekend. I remember going to see Breakfast Club with him and being blown away. Of course I was barely a teenager at the time, and the movie doesn't hold up as well now, but at the time...five people in a detention on Saturday...that was high-art.

"Don't You Forget About Me" was a huge musical influence on me, too. That song was a gateway to better music. Mr. Hughes always had great soundtracks.

Rest in Peace, sir.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments People die.

It just sucks that it's people I like who are dying.

Then again, I'm very happy to be alive, so I guess I can't really complain.

John Hughes movies are super. My faves: Mr. Mom, Sixteen Candles, Some Kind of Wonderful, Weird Science; Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, Christmas Vacation... and Mary Stuart Masterson in Some Kind of Wonderful nailed the role of my fave alltime Hughes character.

RT from PopCandy: Chicago is cloudy, gray, on the cusp of rain. I think this city misses John Hughes.
