John Hughes (1950 - 2009) - Don't You Forget About Him...

I had the chance to meet him on the set of "Curley Sue" in between filming and it was a cool two second handshake... something I always say... I was there... he will be always remembered as a teenager...

What was your favorite film, films just aren't the same without his sense of what it was like to be young. How many of you got a chance to see every film in a movie theater or own many of the films. One of my favorites is below, well at least one of the songs that appeared in the film?

  1. John Hughes movies were a huge part of my high school days! My favorite is Some Kind of Wonderful. I felt like I was Watts

  2. I'm a huge fan. Hard to pick a favorite, but going to go with Breakfast Club. It's the one I've bought, so that's probably a clue...I just wish the kiss between Claire and Bender wasn't left on the cutting room floor. I hear it was hot...

  4. I'm a fan of Hughs, but my favorite is "Better Off Dead." I guess I just liked how trippy and surreal it was for a teen movie.

  5. Sixteen Candles with Breakfast Club as a close second. I read that he made Some Kind of Wonderful because the studio execs wouldn't let him have the ending he wanted in Pretty in Pink. (Where Ducky gets the girl) Didn't like that one because Ducky was way cooler than Blayne.
