    I would have one of those but all you bloody Americans have taken them all and pushed the prices up.

    That old theatre was turned into a multi storied car park as well.
    Cant help it if we love Gibson. And V8's

    And we must be the only country that doesnt say "bloody" ... well.. not down here we dont... unless we accidentally get shot during a hunting season.

    The its "bloody hell, what just happened"

    I love the Blues Brothers. It's one of my favorite comedies of all time.

    Sounds like I'm kidding, but this movie did actually teach me at a formative age a number of really important lessons, including but not limited to;

    Don't stick it in crazy.
    Music is a world of wonder, explore it.
    Pay attention when old dudes are speaking.
    Moral and legal aren't synonyms.
    Nazis are dicks.
    Beware of bar tabs.

    I owe this movie a great deal, it will always be in my heart.

    There are a bunch of reasons why I should love The Blues Brothers film, but I don't. Here are just a few of those reasons:

    * I love Belushi
    * I love Ackroyd
    * The movie has a ton of great quotes

    And yet, the movie never really grabbed me. I never liked when Jake and Elwood played on SNL--it seemed terribly self-indulgent. And I didn't like when they played in the movie. Just not my style of music. They bored me when they were playing.

    Now, obviously, they're not playing in the large majority of the movie, and so yes, I did enjoy some parts of that . But overall, I could never really get into it, no matter how much I tried. And believe me, I tried. My Dad loved it! And a lot of my friends loved it. So I saw it many times.

    Didn't matter. It was such a thin premise for a movie, and I never looked forward to watching it. In contrast to contemporary films like Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Vacation, Airplane, and Fletch--now THOSE were films I adored, and still do to this day.

    To not like the Blues Brothers is to show a troubling lack of SNLIQ.

    Lol, no, my SNLIQ is pretty darn high.

    But I will concede a rather pedestrian BBIQ.

    I like the brothers well enough--except when they're playing. Just not my cup of tea.

    Of course. An unforgivable oversight on my part.
