We here at Hollywood Crush think Christopher Columbus has been hogging Columbus Day for far too long. Yes, his discovery would eventually lead to the creation of our fine country, but there's another Columbus who's changed the (pop culture) landscape forever. It's time to pay homage to director/writer/producer Chris Columbus, a man whose career has spanned nearly three decades.
From retro classics like "The Goonies " (which he penned) and "Adventures in Babysitting," to holiday perennials like both "Home Alone" films, anyone born in the '80s most certainly has a soft spot for the guy. His career took an even bigger turn when he took the helm of the first two "Harry Potter" movies, "Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone" and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets."
His diverse body of work (including the tear-jerking drama "Stepmom" and the big-screen adaptation of the groundbreaking musical "Rent") would make us sail the ocean blue to watch them again and again. Take our poll after the jump and let us know which Chris Columbus flick is your all-time fave!
