Ferris Bueller's Day Off is my favorite.

I never really understood why he quit directing in the early 90s, perhaps because he thought his time passed (all of his movies had that silly 80s family comedy pop flavor). Certainly not one of the greatest directors that ever lived, but I've watched most of his movies when I was younger and had a good time. Planes, Trains & Automobiles is still great, and I watch it from time to time

Never liked his films, but 59 is young, and I'm sorry for anyone who has to check out early.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

I don't think I've seen any of his films and I don't really plan on watching any.
My sentiments are the same as Jinkies.
Far too young.
I didn't think he was so young.
Could've sworn he was in his 70's.

You have never seen Home Alone (I know he didn't direct it)? What did you watch when you were a kid?

If I didn't grow up watching his movies on cable, I doubt I'd like his work, but I have a soft spot for him. I like most of his movies, and 80s teen comedies in general b/c of nostalgia.

59 is too young, may he RIP.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Yeah I've seen Home Alone and its sequel.
I know Hughes wrote it but I've never seen any films he directed.

I've seen a little bitty bit of The Breakfast Club but couldn't get into it so I didn't continue watching.

I grew up watching, mostly, animated films and live action kid's films (Home Alone, Goonies) or a hybrid of the two (Who Framed Roger Rabbit).
I had probably seen just about everything Disney had to offer by the time I was 6.

Criterion is releasing "The Breakfast Club" on BD in January. There's already a decent release so this should be pretty amazing.

The way Dede Allen cuts between those reaction shots throughout the film is brilliant. In the words of John Hughes:

Quote
And I went and did Breakfast Club, and I had this genius mentor. Every night at dailies was like film school….Dede Allen, and she, she cut my, my –that changed the way I that I cut pictures…Pictures are made in the editing room.”
