THE POP EXPOSE ‘John Hughes’ By Mitchell Smith!

John Hughes is an American Filmmaker born in 1950 and sadly passed away in 2009. John wrote, produced, and directed many major motion picture films. Hughes was born in Lansing, MI and grew up in Michigan. He started his career after dropping out of the University of Arizona by selling jokes to performers such as Rodney Dangerfield and Joan Rivers. Hughes has a long list of movies he was involved in. He was a writer for several movies including, Mr. Mom, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and Beethoven.

He was also a producer for so many such as Home Alone, Dennis the Menace, and the Great Outdoors. He Directed Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, and Uncle Buck. Hughes also did all three on several movies such as The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Planes Trains and Automobiles. Three is a 2009 documentary about the search for Hughes after he fell out of the spot light in 1994. On recent additions of the internet sensation “Together Apart” by Josh Gad, Gad pays tribute to John Candy and all time legend John Hughes. The 2 had worked together in several movies and its no doubt both are legends.

I’m sure many of us grew up watching John Hughes’ movies and he was a huge reason for so many awesome eighties and nineties movies. The legend is gone but his work will live on forever. John Candy is one of my favorite actors and I’m glad Hughes did so many movies with Candy in them. Pretty much everything Hughes had a hand in turned into pure gold. I think this weekend may be a Hughes binge watching weekend. Are you a fan of John Hughes Movies? Let us know AFTER THE JUMP!
