Monday Movie Meme

Feature Presentation!
Better late than never on the Monday Movie Meme hosted by The Bumbles. Today's guest director is Anne from Static and Silence. She asks us to talk about movies written and/or directed by the late John Hughes (he also produced and directed some of these films).


The 80's wouldn't have been the same without John Hughes! The film that most influenced me is The Breakfast Club (1985). I STILL love the song, "Don't You Forget about Me" all because of that movie. I especially liked the performances by Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy.

There are so many more, though!
Mr. Mom (1983)
Vacation (1983)
Sixteen Candles (1984)
Pretty in Pink (1986)
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1987)
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (1987)
Christmas Vacation (1989)
Home Alone (1990)
Beethoven (1992)
Of course, there are others. I may have to go watch some of these again soon!

Ah - it does make you want to go pop in some of these classics doesn't it?!

I think of The Breakfast Club every time I hear that Simple Minds song. Very rarely is a song so automatically connected by everyone to a film. I don't know if he had a hand in the music selections or not, but the soundtracks to his movies were always so perfect.

Don't you just love John Hughes? =) Thanks for dropping by my site. Sorry for the delayed response, time zone issues. Pretty in Pink all the way! =)

All of those movies were around when I was growing up so I like most of them.

Haven't seen the Breakfast Club, but have seen most of the others on your list. I have mixed feelings about these movies. Some I really liked, others not so much. I guess it's 'cause I was a Mom in the 80's and not a teenager. LOL
