"If He Gets Up, We'll All Get Up, It'll Be Anarchy!"

Sad day today. I'm sure everyone knows by now, but I just had to post SOMEthing. John Hughes, director of one of my favourite movies of all time, The Breakfast Club (and many other classics), passed away today from a sudden heart attack at the age of 59.

There's not much to say, but I'm just sad. I know that movie backwards and forwards... Ah, just sad. That's all there is to it. He was fairly young too! What a shame... :-(

I think I'll watch it this weekend. Love these "kids"!

"Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place."

The End.

This was a director I was really hoping had time to come back with a film that equalled the warmth humor and insight of his early work. And I think he would have so were all the poorer for being bereft of what a more mature and seasoned artist could have accomplished.

Not much that can be said beside the fact, that he will be missed and that he was one of the best in his trade. :( Maybe I should dig "Breakfast Club" out and watch it, remembering the time it came out and how it influenced us....
