Apparently he died on Thursday, and I didn’t hear about it until just a few minutes ago. It’s kind of shocking. I’m not going to say it depressed me to hear or anything like that…but wow. John Hughes. Didn’t see that coming.
Here’s a list of his movies I’ve seen. He didn’t DIRECT all of them, but he was involved in all of these on some level, be it writer, director, or producer.
- Mr. Mom
- National Lampoon’s Vacation
- Sixteen Candles
- The Breakfast Club
- Weird Science
- Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
- Planes, Trains & Automobiles
- The Great Outdoors
- Uncle Buck
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- Home Alone
- Home Alone 2
I guess I’m a pretty big fan. In fact, looking at that list…I’m not sure there’s anyone whose work I’ve seen MORE of, now that I think about it. (And “Dutch” was HIGHLY under-rated!)
Rest in peace, John. We won’t forget about you. (What? I’m not allowed ONE cheesy “Breakfast Club” reference? Come on…a man just died!)
- Blue Tattoo Mixes…I keep going back and forth on it. I’m WAY more paranoid about this project, because I have to please the other three guys and not just myself. I have it to where I like it, I think…hopefully they will too.
