John Hughes is dead :(

The man whose films practically defined my generation died today of a heart attack at age 59.  His films were the epitome of growing up in the ’80s.  I would say that, personally, The Breakfast Club was my favorite with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off a close second.  Weird Science was also one of my favorites, though more a cult classic than a great film.  He also wrote the screenplay for Home Alone which – can you believe it? – came out 19 years ago!

Update: Check out this very well-done montage of some of Hughes’ films. Don’t worry. It slows down after a minute or two.
