  1. Sad news indeed.

    Though I'd have been in favor (as it seems so was Hughes) of him NOT going back to mine the material unless we were given the 'where are they now' scenario. Like a Breakfast Club reunion film (sounds ludicrous put like that), but C'mon! I'd love to see what happened to the Jock, the Nerd, the Hood, the Prom Queen, and the Weirdo . . . maybe it's a better idea in theory than it would be as a film but still! And it wouldn't be the same without Paul Gleason who passed away a few years ago. Breakfast Club came out the year I graduated from high school so it will always be a very special film for me.


    Fact is you can NEVER recapture the magic of the time, Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller, Weird Science, Some Kind Of Wonderful, etc . . .

    They were seminal teen films for the generation growing up in the 80's. Still very relevant today but nigh impossible to attempt to produce anything close to the touchstone he hit at the time.


    And let's not forget that as a writer Hughes also scripted that early 80's classic, Mr. Mom.

    Why does no one ever mention that one? He also wrote Nate And Hayes, one of my favorite 80's adventure films.

    I'll NEVER forget how hard I laughed when I saw Planes, Trains & Automobiles at the theater in 1987. She's Having a Baby, Uncle Buck, Career Opportunities, and Dutch are also among my favorite Hughes fiilms.


    I have a feeling that Vid stores are doing bang up business on these titles right fucking now (if they even have some of them in stock.

    I'm sure everyone in and around my age is reconnecting with these films and reliving their delicious youth, God it was great.


    It's such a great loss losing a creator like Hughes at such a young age, but JayHOsuhFAT! what a legacy.


    Personal favorite Hughes moment - From Ferris Bueller's Day Off (OK, the WHOLE FILM!), it will NEVER get old and still makes me laugh as hard as the first time I saw it . . .


    [A Cubs game is on television]

    Ed Rooney: What's the score?

    Pizza Joint Owner: Nothin' nothin'.

    Ed Rooney: [not really listening] Who's winning?

    Pizza Joint Owner: (a beat . . and incredulous stare) . . . The Bears.


    Fuck man, we were just laughing our asses off about that scene a few weeks ago at SDCC!


    Live On John Hughes, and thanks a BILLION.


    - TB


    PS - Don't be afraid, tell us which is your favorite Hughes film.

    My fave - Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)



    It’s hard to pick just one. I grew up on his movies in the eighties, whenever I'm missin the good ole days of my younger years I pop in a John Hughes film and the world seems right again...He knew exactly how to capture the angst of the eighties teenager like no other. Even his newer stuff was fantastic, he will be missed indeed. But forced to pick just one I would have to agree, Ferris Bueller is definitely great. You can't go wrong with lines like

    "Whoever you are I have a gun and a scorching case of herpes"...classic


  2. These are up late at night, bored to death, nuttin to do, and nothin on TV, pencils and one with water color...Compared to the other art work on here, I'm almost embarrased to post it, but what the hay...:unsure:








  3. I feel kinda stupid posting this after seeing all the other great work in this section, but here goes. This is a sketch that I did of Thomas' wife, Patricia Arquette, a while back. It's not great, and it doesn't really look all that much like her, but I still like it.







    That looks great, you did an xcellent job on the nose!

  4. JWeber, check out the links I posted in the Dark Country and 3-D Biz is Booming threads. There is a growing interest in 3-D with a lot of new advances being made in the technology. Also there is a lot of talk about other new movies being made in 3-D, such as James Cameron's Avatar 3-D. It's also been rumored that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have 3-D have projects in the works. I myself think this is absolutely fantastic and can't wait to see what's ahead. And it seems as if RAW Studios is at the forefront of this trend.


    Check out the articles posted in the above threads if you're interested. Sorry to butt in, but I thought you might be interested in reading the articles.



    I saw a preview at the movies a few weeks ago for Journey to the Center of the Earth, with Brendon Fraiser it's going to be in 3-D. It looked great! Way better than the old stuff...Can't wait to see some hard core 3-D like RAW might put out. If it's done right it could be interesting and a change of pace from the ordinary...
