RIP John Hughes

This average-looking man is responsible for creating the town of Shermer, Illinois (and all its residents) for some of the great films of the 1980s.
  • Sixteen Candles
  • The Breakfast Club
  • Weird Science
  • Pretty in Pink
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Aside from those (which I'd recommend seeing ASAP if you haven't yet), his body of work as a writer was impressive as well, despite being not terribly succesful since the mid-90s. You were a great inspiration to us all, Mr. Hughes; you will truly be missed.
