Default Director John Hughes Dead of Heat Attack

Growing up in the 1980's I am not ashamed to admit that I loved (and still do) John Hughes movies so I was sad to hear of his passing of a Heart Attack. How could you not love National Lampoon's Vacation, Planes Tranes and Automobiles, Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club, Uncle Buck, Home Alone, Ferris Buehler's Day Off and so many more? I am sure that his films never won any awards, but many are on my all-time favorite list and they all seemed to leave you feeling good after watching them.

RIP John Hughes and thanks for the movies....

He was a great director, his movies were revolutionary in a way. Creator of many classics.

I read Hughes stuff for years in National Lampoon magazine way before his movies were ever made. He was a great talent and may he rest in piece. He had said many times that he wouldn't make any more movies due to the way the movie business operates.

If he couldn't take the "Heat" I guess he should've stayed out of the kitchen.

I'm mocking the thread title not the dead man (since I know somebody would get on me for that).

It was always nice that he set films in the area he grew up in.
