In honor of the work of John Hughes, Team Phungo presents the
John Hughes Memorial Trading Card Trivia Contest!
I have 10 cards listed below and your job is to connect them to the correct movie. I have basically stuck to the movies Hughes directed and wrote during his mid to late 80s period.
I would like to run this as a contest, similar to Spot the Sig I have given each card a base hit value, if one accumulates enough hits they will score runs. Whoever scores the most runs wins.
There are some caveats:
-You must answer the movies in order and answer all of the movies
-If you miss a movie thats an out
-If you accumulate 3 outs you are done scoring
-Some movies are mentioned more than once and some not at all.
A perfect game would be 10 runs. Some of the Homers are distant connections that may only make sense in my own twisted mind, but it's my game so I make up the rules. Answer in the comments. Winner gets crowned King or Queen of the 80s and pile of junk cards from their favorite team.

There you go have fun and good luck.
Since this is a weekend I will give till 6pm (eastern) on Monday 8/10 for folks to get their guesses in.
If there is a tie, the first entry will win.
The comments are open, so one can wait and vulture answers or try and get an entry in quick in an effort to be the first to get all 10 movies.
