John Hughes, noted director of 80s "Brat Pack" films like Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, has died at the age of 59.
With great sadness I read the news of John Hughes dead.
He shaped my youth like few others did, made it into a magical place to be and I will keep remembering him as the very embodiment of Teen Movies in the finest sense.
Hollywood lost one of their greatest, and we lost a man who set an example in his works for us youngsters worthy to strive after.
In a time when moviemakers seem only to either make movies about sex crazed teenagers void of any sense of belonging or stupid comedies to dumb to enjoy, to lose such a fine moviemaker and writer hurts all the more.
My heartfelt regret for their loss goes out to his friends and family.
