07 Aug John Hughes Passes: Will Be Remembered By Many As Giving 80’s Teens A Reason To Live, Laugh And Love
Hughes gave us so many wonderful movies, and lots of good times! Sweet memories! With his passing I sat and reminisced on some of the great classics he gave me, okay us, and I wanted to share a few with my favorite funkenbabies. Hell I was a pre-teen/teen when some of these cult classics came out, and Friday nights where filled with, a group of giggling gals, sleeping bags, pop corn and a John Hughes movie. Everyone went wild over Duckie, drooled over Jake and envied Samantha.
It would take me days to list, so here is a short walk down memory lane:
Sixteen Candles 1984
Hell yeah! Jake Ryan was a god! Samantha, the birthday girl needed a hot pair of boobs, and Long Duck Dong found that pair of boobs on a 6 foot gal who ran track and lifted weights…. AWESOME!
The Breakfast Club 1985
They were five total strangers, with nothing in common, meeting for the first time. A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. Before the day was over, they broke the rules and touched each other in a way they never dreamed possible.
Smart ass kids with a dry humor, yet a serious approach to every day teen life. I gotta say, I felt like the geeky girl, but had the hots for the bad boy…go figure 🙂
Weird Science 1985
What a freakin’ RAD movie, had everything to make a great teen movie. Geeks, popular kids, hot ‘computer made’ chick, the creep, and last but not least the huge missile in the bedroom…. A 15 year old boy’s dream come true.
Some Kind of Wonderful 1987
“Before they could stand together, they had to stand alone”.
This is by far the best “romantic” teen movie! Rich, poor, good friends, or not, love will find you 🙂
There are so many more great movies, once again, thank you John you will be missed.
