I just saw this and thought I would pass it along. John Hughes directed some of the best movies of my generation. Movies such as National Lampoon's Vacation, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Home Alone and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Crap, how sad. As a huge fan of the 80s, it hurt to read this. Especially so soon after Michael Jackson passed. Home Alone was a huge part of my childhood too.

RIP John.
I'll watch one of your movies in your memory.

Okay. Sad. A guy died. He was prolific in the 1980's and onwards as a director. Um............okay. Cody Diablo will now go on to be an even more prolific writer, producer and director in this guy's wake. All is not lost. We have this guy's work. My condolences to his family and friends and fans. By the way, a former mayor of Danville, Ky died recently.
