RIP John Hughes

We’ve lost a legend.

The writer and director of some of the best movies the world has seen died of a heart attack during his morning walk, while he was in New York visiting family.

John Hughes was the genius behind The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink and Home Alone.

What a legacy though!

Your films are timeless!

You made stars!

You created a genre!

You changed the world, John!

    oh I loved all those movies. This is the first time I heard about this sad news.
    His movies definitely had an impact on my generation, plus older. I loved Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

  6. OMG! *sob* Legend is right.



  7. Sad day. 😦

    I threw my weekend plans out of the window. Will watch his wonderful movies instead.

    (I was going to do a “little letter” post, too, but I stopped after the first sentence because I know only you can write them right. Haha. I can’t even write a proper and creative title or salutation like you do! Cannot wait for more of these letters.)

    Very sad day, I have a lot of his movies on DVD, they are classics to me.

  9. Definitely agree about his films being timeless. Although they may look dated (helllooooooo 80s), I think a lot of the issues and themes will resonate with audiences for a long time to come. Plus they’re just so damn enjoyable. Ferris Bueller, 16 Candles, The Breakfast Club – some of my favourites of all time. Classics!
