I just read the sad news that John Hughes, writer/producer and sometime director of some of my favorite movies of all time, is dead. I LOVED his teen movies, and still love to watch them to this day. My all-time favorite would have to be “The Breakfast Club,” followed closely behind by “Pretty in Pink” and “Some Kind of Wonderful.” I also found “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” hilarious, once I got old enough that my mom would let me watch it (what with that “R” rating and all). I think I may just have to have a John Hughes marathon this weekend in tribute – that is, if I can get my car running. More updates on that later.
