In memory of John Hughes

To many of us, John Hughes will forever remain etched into our memories. The legendary film writer and director, who passed away yesterday aged just 59, brought us the kind of cult classics that kids of the 80s and 90s were crazy for. From Home Alone and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, to The Breakfast Club and (my personal fave) Uncle Buck, it's tribute to him that these films are now doing the rounds across the next generation, and still make us laugh out loud. 

You can leave your personal tribute to John below, and for a heartrending story of one teenager's pen-pal friendship with the man himself, visit Sincerely, John Hughes - we promise, it's an incredible read.
