Reel Projections podcast: Tribute to John Hughes


[image-2]When I heard that writer/director John Hughes had died in NY Thursday at the age of 59, my first instinct was to hit YouTube and check out some of his clips. This is the best of what I found:

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

All the best lines …

The Breakfast Club

Original trailer …

Uncle Buck

"Get in your mouse, and get out of here!"

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Trailer …

Sixteen Candles

"No more yankee my wankee, the Donger need food!"

Weird Science

Trailer …

On this week's very special Reel Projections podcast, Host Joe (that's me) is joined by PoHo Wayne Garcia for a conversation about the career of director John Hughes, who died on Thursday at the age of 59. Joe and the PoHo play audio clips from Hughes most famous movies and dissect the director's influence on the 1980s specifically, and on film-making in general. And go here for video clips of Hughes' films.
