My favourite John Hughes films are as follows:
Pretty In Pink - A film about Andie Walsh who is considered one of the 'poor kids' at school, falls in love with one of the rich, popular boys Blaine McDonough. When Andie and Blane try to get together, they encounter resistance from their respective social circles. Andie's best friend Duckie is completely in love with her but jokes about it around her. It's a bit of a love triangle with laughing, crying and a tad of disappointment. I adore this film and it is one of my favourite's but it never goes just quite how I want it too.
Again, I love this film it's funny, heartbreaking, and happy all in one and you should definitely watch it.
Watch this film and you will not be disappointed.
Some Kind of Wonderful - Tomboy Watts has always considered Keith Nelson her best friend but when Keith asks out the most popular girl in school, Watts realises that her feelings are more and that she has always been in love with him. I can't go any more into detail of the plot otherwise I will give away the ending but it is a wonderful twist and you need to watch this film with is truly heart warming!
So there you are, some of my favourite John Hughes films of the 80's. My advice is to watch all of these films and then you will understand my love for all things John Hughes.
I think that films are amazing they can make you have so many emotions and can change your way of looking at life. I love films that do this and I can safely say that all of these films do and I am so grateful that John Hughes made these films come to life like he did. I admire him so much and I would love to be able to change lives like he has in so many ways.
John Hughes. 1950 - 2009
