Remembering John Hughes: A Movie Trailer Retrospective
Posted by CoolerKing in Features

The great John Hughes, possibly one of the most influential and popular writer/directors of the 1980s and the one filmmaker perhaps most often identified with the phrase “teen movie,” died yesterday from a heart attack in New York City at the age of fifty-nine. Hughes’ movies, which frequently featured children and teens struggling to make sense of the world around them, became instant classics – the kinds of movies that were loved by audiences, but could never be described as guilty pleasures. His movies were fun, entertaining, and ridiculously quotable (every person over the age of fifteen has said “Bueller, Bueller, Bueller...” at least once), and yet they were also expertly made, endlessly clever, and deeply insightful. While Hughes’ output decreased significantly during the 1990s, he will forever be remembered as one of pop culture’s most beloved directors.
