Remembering John Hughes
I frequently talk about David lynch and John Waters, but I also like mainstream movies and my favorite mainstream film maker is John Hughes. John Hughes, in my opinion, was the film maker for my generation and no other epitomizes the 80s like he does. I believe that his movies are so rooted in the culture, mores and norms of the 80s that younger viewers may have trouble relating to them, but if they didn't try they'd be missing out on the universal truths that he put in every movie: question authority, opposites attract, and there's someone for everyone. So, let's raise our glasses to John Hughes, a man who entertained and educated as well.
