Voted in at number 99 by the readers of Empire Magazine and the 1st movie on the list that I am watching for the first time. I am the first to admit that, even though
I am a self proclaimed movie lover, I have massive gaps in my movie viewing. While movies like The Blues Brothers didn’t get
much critical acclaim when it came to awards, it has solidified itself as a cult classic and it is easy to
see why. The two things that scream at you about this movie are the amazing tunes and the amazing car chases (which only out do each other each time).
Like all good movies, the production of this one wasn’t an easy one especially for Universal Studios who backed the movie. Went way over budget and their were many delays partly due to John Belushi’s addiction to cocaine.
