ON MOVIES ~ Jake Ryan Fan Club...

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about John Hughes...

A while back, Monday Movie Meme participant Anne of Static and Silence contacted us with a topic suggestion we couldn't pass up. You see, the Bumbles grew up as teens in the 80's. Director and writer John Hughes helped us through those awkward years. Anne is a fan too and she wanted to shine her Guest Director spotlight on the man himself. How could we say no? All Guest Directors get free reign here - including choice of topic, first dibs on selections and creative freedom of format. Without further ado - here's Anne's debut...

This is my debut as a guest blogger in The Bumbles Monday Movie
meme
weekly blog event. I would like to thank Molly for giving me this honor.

This week's topic is all about the films of the late John Hughes. Admit it. Once upon a time (in your life), you were bitten by the John Hughes bug. I haven't seen all of his movies, but those I saw still beat those chick flicks running around these days. Show how much you love John Hughes' movies by answering this:

John Hughes... How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
  1. You made lip syncing look so cool because of Duckie, Ferris and Kevin.
  2. For making me believe that a jock like Andrew could fall for a basket case like Allison.
  3. You made 80's music sound so good with a special mention of Don't You Forget About Me and If You Leave.
  4. You made me fancy and wish for Curly Sue's card tricks and beautiful curly locks.
  5. For Jake Ryan and Blane McDonnagh.
  6. For writing and making films that are Some Kind of Wonderful.
Join in and share on your blog your love of John Hughes, linking back here at The Bumbles. If you're curious what our choices are, hop on over to Anne's blog to find out. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

I will just apologize now, because I'm not participating this week. I went to see The Girl Who Played With Fire last Sunday, and decided to talk about it this Monday. But this topic! I love the Hughes movies, and now have been introducing my kids to them. I (accidentally) allowed them to watch Breakfast Club this summer, not remembering that there are about three dozen f-bombs. Ooops. They absolutely loved the movie though.

Something about The Breakfast Club... whenever it's on, I have to watch it. I just can't change the channel.

I only LOVE one John Hughes movie, but since I love it lots, I was able to have fun with this post.
