      OMG! So sad. RIP.
      Good morning, son
      In twenty years from now
      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
      And I can tell you 'bout today
      And how I picked you up and everything changed
      It was pain
      Sunny days and rain
      I knew you'd feel the same things...

          I loved just about every single one of his movies. Very sad news. Far to young to die.

            The legendary director of many 80's hits died today at the age of 59.

            Cause of death was a heart attack.

                    One of his best creations was the Griswolds. RIP John.

                        The last movie he directed was 1991's Curly Sue. It was OK.

                        I liked his movies well enough, but I was never really a big fan of him as an auteur.

                          I grew up watching these films. These were my middle school high school years: Ferris Bueller's Day Off', 'Sixteen Candles' 'The Breakfast Club', 'Weird Science' and 'Pretty in Pink'

                          He created the brat pack and made a fortune putting them in his films. He was reaching out to my demographic and we loved every minute of it!

                          Those were good years to be a teen. Farewell John Huges

                            For those who get the Travel Channel, they are showing Vacation tonight. Not sure if it is a tribute or just a coincidence but it's fun to go to Wally World

                              Dusty, you summed it up for me right there.

                              Ferris Bueller is my all-time favorite movie. I grew up with all the others as well. They don't make teen movies like these anymore. They were quirky, fun, quoteable as all get out... They were just awesome.
