thank you john hughes for the movies

film director and screen writer john hughes has died
i adore his 80s teen movies ( the breakfast club, pretty in pink, ferris bueller's day off, some kind of wonderful, sixteen candles). they are the best of the genre. they defined and influenced a generation.

i have never tired of rewatching them. allison, bender, duckie, andie, cameron, ferris, watts, etc. will remain as endearing (and weird) and above all recognizable as part of ourselves as long as ppl watch movies and are going/have gone through adolescence.

if you have not seen them, watch them. you will never regret it. (btw you will be surprised as to how many and how much new teen films and tv dramas "borrow" from his movies.)

"the sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. they think he's a righteous dude. "
