Film Legend, John Hughes, Passes Away

Famous for films which are known as staples for the 1980's teen, John Hughes has passed away at the age of 59.
This is one of those stories that no one wants to report, but the we always need to out of respect.

On August 6th, 2009, film legend, John Hughes, passed away due to a heart attack.

Hughes was best known for writing/directing '80s teen movies such as Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Hughes' films were most popular among the younger generations of the '80s because of his amazing ability to relate to the youth of the time. He often employed themes of peer pressure, social rejection, and general teen slacking to create an overwhelming connection with teenagers.

Hughes also loved for music play a major part in his movies, as well as have his characters break the fourth wall.

In his personal life, he was known for being very down to earth, and always keeping a rational perspective.

While the world mourns his untimely departure from this mortal coil, many people are sharing their memories of what his films meant, both personally and as a society. While I was reading, I came across this blog post:
Sincerely, John Hughes

It really is a great story to portray what an amazing man John Hughes was, especially in the heated business of Hollywood.

Rest in peace, Mr. Hughes. You will be missed.
