John Hughes RIP

john-hughes-608 Very sad news for us 30 somethings with the death of John Hughes an absolutely pivotal icon of my youth, John wrote and directed 2 of my top films of all time (Weird Science and Ferris Buellers Day Off) and I certainly am feeling a great loss with the death of this hero of my childhood.

I will be reviewing several of his films in the near future and expanding my net to the romantic teen films that slipped me by (Pretty in Pink etc) and hopefully I can get more people enjoying his genius.

It seems as I get older more and more of my past slips away. With the death of John at just 59 this was far too soon.

Thank you John for everything that you have given me in the past and the entertainment yet to come. Thank you.
