Why were 80’s movies so awesome? Some how they captured an essence that I don’t think movies can these days. I hope in twenty years there is some one that is writing how 2000 movies are awesome, but I don’t see that happening.
John Hughes is the man he wrote so many classics in the 80’s. Ferris Bueller's Day Off one of my favorite movies of all times, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Vacation, Weird Science, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Christmas Vacation, and a lot more I don’t even know why I put so many. There are two many good ones, I guess I got carried away.
The closes director I can think of to compare with Mr. Hughes would be Kevin Smith. Don’t freak out and start yelling John Hughes is in his own class. I just think his library of dick and fart joke movies (Kevin Smith) is what we have in our generation to look back on as “our” NOSTALGIC movies.
Let me know who else you feel would be a better fit instead of Kevin Smith I am sure there are plenty out there.
