  • The Blues Brothers is definitely in my book one of the best comedies of all time. I couldn't believe my eyes that this film is not on the top 250, well, John Landis doesn't get enough credit in all. He brought us the most memorable comedies of all time: An American Werewolf in London, Trading Places, Animal House, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

  • Watching The Blues Brothers on blu-ray is like watching the film for the first time. Even though, I've watched this movie over and over again for over 20 years, it's still refreshing to see it so clear.
