  1. John Hughes was an 80’s movie icon. I am saddened by his passing. All of his movies have a sort of feel to them that is in describable. I went thru 5th grade to 12th grade with his movies…they defines the decade and era. The movies themselves were unique, the soundtracks from these movies amazing. He will be missed and remembered fondly!

  2. sixteen candles is one of my all time fave movies! i can say the whole movie word by word when watching. rip john, you will be missed. 😦

  3. As a queer boy growing up in the 80’s, I loved Hughes celebration of difference. Sixteen Candles is my all time favorite Hughes film. It is the wish fulfillment of getting the hot guy in the end despite one’s original point of departure. It’s just great.
