RIP John Hughes

RIP John Hughes. You Tube montage of his films.

Michael Jackson, John Hughes, what is happening to all the 80’s legends that I grew up with, and who penetrated the deepest caverns of my frazzled pysche? Ferris Buellar’s Day Off is one of the best comedies ever made and has the best line in a comedy ever:

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a minute, you could miss it.”

From the booming sounds of Simple Minds to the genius of John Candy, John Hughes’ movies left an indelible mark on me, and even though his finest hour was long ago, just as with Michael Jackson, I had always hoped he would come back with one last act of genius.

I hate to think what Jay and Silent Bob will be thinking right now. Will have to check out Kevin Smith’s twitter posts.
