"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

My friend's dad actually paused the video whilst we were watching and told me to 'be prepared for the best car chase in cinema history!' and I can't believe how profound those words were! Straight from the off you have comedy genius mixed with energetic and... read more

My Top 10 Funniest Comedies (10 movies items)

"This is another case where the humour comes from just how much things escalate. All that Jake and Elwood are trying to do is raise money to save their old orphanage, yet somehow, along the way, all this shit happens! It all builds up to one of the biggest car chases ever put on film, and it's so funny knowing that all this chaos has been caused by just these two people! I also love Carrie Fisher's character and how straight-faced she is while using weapons like bombs and bazookas! Plus Jake and "

"First viewing - Dec. 30th The last time I watched The Blues Brothers was before I moved to Austin, so it's been at least 8 years. And while I generally don't enjoy musicals, this one is so much its own animal that the fact it's a musical doesn't bother me at all. In fact, thanks to the approach taken with how the music is used in connection to the story I almost prefer the musical numbers over the rest of the film. I say almost because the chase scenes are among the best I've ever seen, a wonde"
