The Blues Brother film was one of the greatest films and it even has the greatest soundtrack too. There is something about this film that brings out the best feeling in each of us. There is something about rebellion that brings out the human in all of us. And this is what this film is all about. The Blues Brothers may not be the conventional good boys of the world but they had a big heart. And they stood true to what they love most: their music. They were not so keen about changing their style no matter what other people said. They knew that if they were true to their music – they were true to themselves.
The Blues Brother Blu Ray will remind you what timeless comedy is all about. This film is all about interesting characters in a fun story – those characters grow far more intriguing as the film’s narrative progresses. There is a “certain quirkiness” about this film that it was dubbed as the second’s most successful movie of all time. The Blues Brothers will always stand as one of the greatest comedies of the early 80’s. It will always be funny, full of spirit and love and will always be filled with memorable moments and music. With its awesome action sequences and power house cast, it is not a question as to why it was a huge success back then.
The Blues Brothers Blu Ray has two cuts of the film – there is the 133 minute theatrical cut and the extended one of 148 minutes. If you are one of the diehard fans, then you may want to consider buying the extended cut. Blues Brother Blu ray fares pretty damn great!
