The Blues Brothers Blu-ray Review

The Blues Brothers is a film that can teach us all a very important lesson: Everything we know about the world today might be different tomorrow, but cool is cool in Any era.

Six years after the movie's 25th anniversary DVD release, Universal will bring Jake and Elwood Blues to Blu-ray on Tuesday, July 26, and it's a sight to behold.

The movie follows the Blues Brothers (Dan Aykroyd as Elwood and the late John Belushi as Jake) on their "mission from God," a quest to get their old band back together to raise enough money to keep open the orphanage in which they grew up. Along the way they have to avoid the Illinois State Police (led by John Candy), an annoyed white supremacist (played by the unfairly underrated Henry Gibson), and an angry ex-girlfriend of Jake's (Carrie Fisher) with inexplicable access to rocket launchers and flame throwers.

It's a flimsy plot at best, »
