Some of you have realized by reading my posts that I love movies. I have been known to try and have a conversation by only using movie quotes. So obviously, I was extremely sad to learn of John Hughes’ passing yesterday. He was only 59. So young.
In my opinion, he was one of the greatest filmmakers of our time. His movies are classics. A lot of them are filled with the teen angst that not many others could not convey. I grew up on these movies. I must have watched 16 Candles at least a 1,000 times by now. And The Breakfast Club, forget about it! That is one of the best teen movies ever made.
I just IMDB’d him to see his full list of movie credits. Man, there are ones that I didn’t realize were his. Can you say, Mr. Mom and Vacation? And what about Uncle Buck, Planes, Trains, & Automobiles and The Great Outdoors? Seriously. The world lost an excellent story teller.
In honor of Mr. Hughes, I leave you with this quote from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:
“Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
I invite you all to give me your favorite John Hughes movie quote in the comments.
UPDATE #2: Ok, so this POST is AMAZING! (I should be done with updates now.)
