John Hughes tributes are ubiquitous online today. Herewith a sampling:

Teenage Wasteland Hughes Montage:

Chris Gore picks the must-see DVDs:

Video Game - E3 2009 - Attack of the Show

A trailer for the doc Don’t Forget About Me:

IFC blog lays out the fall straight to DVD releases, as well as an indie theatrical preview.

Carrie Rickey eulogizes the late great Budd Schulberg.

The Indie Spirits are taking a 25th anniversary vacation from their traditional day-before-the-Oscars-Santa Monica-beach ritual. I am not convinced that this is a good idea.

Doug Liman gets heroic on the Hudson.

Errol Morris vs. Ricky Jay.

I remain skeptical on Spike Jonze/Dave Eggers' adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. This trailer does not convince me any more than the extended footage at Comic-Con. These fuzzy stuffed animals look fake to me, and I’m not responding to Max. I need to see the whole movie.

    "300 Blows"? Really?

    Also, The Who song is called "Baba O'Riley," not "Teenage Wasteland." It's right there on the track listing.

    What is wrong with people these days, I wonder.

    On the countary I so glad that Jozne is using real puppets in his movie instead of some crummy phony looking CGI animated creations. Now THAT would have looked fake to me. Let's do it old school they way they used to do it!

    Still cannot believe that John Hughes has passed. What a great, iconic filmmaker. RIP
