13 July 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Blues Brothers 2000 (1998) Director: John Landis Stars: Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman, Joe Morton A lot of hate is being thrown around this weekend's Ghostbusters remake, even with its good reviews, but Awfully Good Movies is here to remind you that if Dan Aykroyd made an actual Ghostbusters 3, you might get something as bad as the 1998 stinker Blues Brothers 2000! Yes, John Belushi may... Read More »

Do sequels ever really work when decades have passed since the first film?

27 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

Ghostbusters: Why is everyone insane?

19 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When the news of the Ghostbusters reboot broke, I worked at a company that has a notoriously terrifying comments section; in the entire history of my time there only one article required that comments be shut down: the announcement of an all female Ghostbusters. Contained within that comment section were some of the most violent assassinations of the female gender that I’ve ever seen. No one could have predicted the firestorm that would haunt this film. On the surface, Ghostbusters is merely a new addition to an old franchise that general audiences may -- or may not -- be familiar with. So how has this little comedy ignited an international firestorm? I was one of those not much interested in a reboot, remake, or sequel in the franchise. Dan Aykroyd had been teasing the prospect for so many years that eventually it felt best to just leave well enough »

Could 'The Blues Brothers' play as an animated series? Dan Aykroyd thinks so

3 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What’s old is new again…whether you want it or not. Bento Box Entertainment announced today that it’s developing the movie classic The Blues Brothers as an animated series. The company that produces such cartoons as Bob’s Burgers and The Awesomes will be creating the show alongside Dan Aykroyd, Judy Belushi (John Belushi’s widow) and writer/producer Anne Beatts. In a statement, Aykroyd said, ”The show will be the Blues Brothers living in America and utilizing all new technology to make and promote their own records, seek out and record new artists and avoid law enforcement – and all while fighting for truth, justice and a better breakfast sandwich.” Producers promise that the series will feature no shortage of music, both R&B classics as well as new performances made just for the show. This is not the first attempt at a cartoon reboot for the R&B band. »

‘The Blues Brothers’ Animated Series in the Works, Because Nothing Is Sacred

3 May 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Even though legendary comedian John Belushi died back in 1982, that didn’t stop The Blue Brothers from getting revived for the unnecessary sequel Blues Brothers 2000. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a lack of John Belushi isn’t stopping his partner in comedy crime, Dan Aykroyd, from developing a Blues Brothers animated series […]
