John Hughes Died…

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
  • Dutch
  • Beethoven
  • 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!)




Current Listening:

  • 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.

One thought on “John Hughes Died…”

  1. Derek – head over to and there’s a link to a neat tribute to Jon Hughes by one of his fans. It’s pretty neat and made me really respect the guy.

    Anyone who grew up in the 80’s could not have helped be influenced by his movies. My faves are “Planes, Trains…” and “Ferris Bueller.”
