Epic, flavoursome '80s action-adventure

"It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

The first, and arguably the best feature to be inspired by characters born on Saturday Night Live, The Blues Brothers is one hell of a fun motion picture. Essentially, it is the Lawrence of Arabia of movies adapted from Saturday Night Live sketches - an epic ye... read more

Somehow, it took me many years to watch this classic and, considering its impressive reputation, I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, even though I did enjoy it, I can’t say I was really blown away by the whole thing though. I guess, it is one of those cases that you keep hearing about a classic for many years but when you finally watch it, there is no way it will fulfill all your wi... read more

BradWesley123’s Movie Journal- June 2021 (39 movies items)

" AMC+- 2hrs. 12min. First Viewing The Blues Brothers is a brilliantly entertaining film, from beginning to end. Sure, it takes a few minutes for the plot to warm up, but once it starts cooking (likely the mall car chase) it never lets up. It's a four-course meal of a film. A genuine force. Monthly Wesley AwardsBest Choreography (Stunts) Best Sound Mixing- William B. Kaplan, Robert Glass, Robert Knudson and Don MacDougall "

“For those who don't know me yet, I am Monstermaster13...I am a reviewer/writer, monster fanatic, SNL lover and a Dan Aykroyd simp you don't want to cross paths with. My love of Aykroyd is one I am fiercely proud of and if anyone questions me about it, they shall meet an early demise. But about my origin for my Aykroyd and SNL obsession, I remember my mother talking to me about Animal House and i s star John Belushi, saying at the time that she found it to be disgusting although compared to today's comedy offering it is tame at least in my opinion.

Prior to discovering the joys of SNL, I was a fan of All That (a Nickelodeon sketch show that was similar to SNL) and The Amanda Show (its spinoff series, my favorite cast member being Josh Peck) and I got into classic SNL later ” read more

"10.10. The Blues Brothersis pauhaa ja komentaa, mutta paikoitellen ei tiedä, mihin suuntaan orkesteria pitäisi oikein viedä, milloin touhu on enemmän kömpelöä kuin hullua. Dialogi on paikkapaikoin oikeinkin kekseliästä, ja kun käsikirjoitus ei kompastele, on suuri hulluus oikeinkin nokkelaa. "
