A thank you to Mr. Hughes

I know the Lurker was in New York and John Hughes died in NY but I had nothing to do with it. I have an alibi. No really! Stop looking at me like that.
Anyway John Hughes died yesterday and he was responsible for most of the best 80's films. I would probably go so far as to say he invented the genre teenage 80's film. I have rewatched most of these fims at the very least 20-30 times. They are all great. Thank you Mr. Hughes for making the planet more entertaining.
Enjoy the montage

  1. I also find it very sad too that we have lost of our greatest creator's of what I call "modern-day, inner personal struggles with added humor/romance/emotional situational-struggling families, friends, and or co-workers." That's hard to say and explain.

    What amazes me still to this day, is a John Hughes movies always seem to have someone in them that reminds you of someone you know, live with, or deal with on a constant basis. Whether it's someone who pushes your buttons, makes you freak out, or just love because they make you happy; John Hughes made the interactions with each other timeless.

    Needless to say, I am writing this very late, and I might be a little loopy, but I am going to just say this: No movie director made me QUOTE lines more than he did. And to me, those lines where written with fun and love. I do miss that, intensely.
