  1. Good post. I just have a few seldom-mentioned things to add…- Hughes wrote the spectacular National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983), which featured a score by Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. The ridiculous guilty pleasure “Weird Science” by Oingo Boingo comes from the Hughes film of the same name.

  2. this news sucks :(
    me and my sis own a whole lot of his movies on dvd and they are among our absolute favourites. all i can say is thankyou to him for sharing those such great flicks with us. i’ll be sharing them with my kids also. r.i.p.

  3. Weird Science, Uncle Buck and FBDO are three of my all-time favourite movies. RIP.
