His movies defined the 1980's for me. :wacko: RIP

No doubt, he left an impression on many of us impressionable males. Bummer.

:wacko: very sad.

 

maybe instead of the typical responses to tragic death, we could use this thread to honor the memories of the characters or scenes he brought us in his movies....

 

Add some of your most memorable to your post.

 

The bathroom scene in sixteen candles, where all the geeks and underclassmen pay money to see Molly Ringwald's undies!!

OK...let's not get so tightassed here........lol. :D

 

His films weren't meant to be deep, meaningful Academy Award winners. :wacko: They were mostly films centered around high schoolers or adolescents or ridiculous situation comedies. :D And he was brilliant in directing kids and teenagers. And teenagers ARE condescending and sarcastic. :D

 

Light.....funny.....damn entertaining. He'll be missed in this household.

 

So many quotable lines.......hmmmmmmm.......

I saw uncle Buck for the first time in a theatre and swore up and down that it was the worst movie I'd ever seen and would rather jump in front of a moving vehicle than see it again.

 

Then the next weekend some girls we knew wanted to go see it :wacko: So we went.

 

I've probably seen it 10 more times since then. Classic.

That's so funny......I saw "Airplane" in the theatre with my best friend. Middle of an afternoon.....only about 7 other people in the theatre. We actually thought about leaving halfway through. Now...we were two pretty funny people, always quick with a joke.....and we thought these jokes sucked. :D

 

Saw it again 10 years later......instant classic in my mind. :D
