John Hughes, 1950-2009

John Hughes, the filmmaker responsible for a lot of the 80's biggest hits, died today.

While I am not a fan of much of his work (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, etc.), there is no doubt that he was a giant in his industry and did a lot for people in the film industry. He was also responsible for the resurgence in teen-oriented movies during the 1980's.

As I said above, I don't care for much of his work, some of the films he contributed to were outstanding, such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off (Directed), and Home Alone (Written). They are among my favorites, and still make me laugh very hard to this day. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace.
