John Hughes Remembered

John Hughes made outsiders cool. Especially in Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club. His '80s love stories had a distinctive style, setting the mold for several other teen angst films to come. He made Molly Ringwald a star and gave us quirky characters like Duckie. Hughes did what many filmmakers often aspire to: create lasting films that can be watched over and over again regardless of generation.

Here's a tribute to Hughes when he won a producer award featuring several interviews with actors from his films.

And another one for good measure.

...and yet another one leaves us. "The Breakfast Club" is one of my most beloved films of all time. I remember acting out the script for fun in my high school drama club. I still have a copy of the script, in fact. Fun times!

R.I.P. John Hughes. It would've been cool if we saw a modern day sequel with the original cast and Hughes at the helm. At least we all can dream.

I am still so heart broken, the video for his producer award is awesome. What an outstanding tribute to his memory.

What a tremendous contribution he made. Most filmmakers are fortunate to have one memorable film, but he really influenced an entire decade.
