Format: DVD
I love The Blues Brothers. This is one of the all-time great comedies; a truly epic comedy. In it's original form, it is flawless from beginning to end. Five Stars easily.
Unfortunately, this "Special Edition" dvd includes 15+ minutes of scenes. Not under a "deleted scenes" section, which would have been appropriate and very welcome, but inserted into the movie itself. To be fair, the extra footage doesn't really hurt the music scenes. But did we really need to see Elwood at his place of employment? Did we really need to see where the Blues-mobile is stored when not being driven? None of the extra footage adds anything to the movie. In fact, it really ruins the perfect pacing of the regular cut.
I truly hope Universal sees the error of their ways and reissues this film on DVD with the original cut. They could even make the added footage viewable within the movie, through seamless branching, but for the love of Pete, give us the option!!!

Format: DVD
I was excited to see this release, a full concert of the original Blues Brothers Band from 1978. I couldn't find any reviews (Warning sign!) so I took a chance and bought it for cheaper at Wal-Mart. I was shocked at how poor the quality was. At first I thought it was a bootleg filmed by someone in the audience, but then the on-stage footage and editing showed there were more cameras.

The sound may be taken "off the board", as the mix is way off at the beginning and eventually the mix comes together. To explain what I mean... you can't hear bass guitar at all until later on in the concert; often when someone is singing or soloing you can't hear them until the person working the mixer raises their level... it's annoying how often this happens; there's a loud feedback that keeps returning, sometimes during songs and sometimes inbetween songs, and the soundman is never able to find where it's coming from; sometimes an instrument suddenly gets loud in the mix for no apparent reason... the piano, the rhythm guitar, etc. all had moments of suddenly being louder than almost anything else.

As for the performance itself, you can tell the Blues Brothers act was very new and inexperienced in front of a live audience. Neither Belushi nor Akroyd can work a crowd yet and the singing is just okay at best. The band is quite good (but the mix is not) but you can tell they haven't played together long enough to be able to "read each other" yet. There are moments where they're caught off guard by the singers, as well as a few sour spots musically... like the closing "Can't Turn You Loose" where Paul Shaeffer's organ isn't even in the same key as the rest of the band.

La version cinéma, d'une exceptionnelle qualité, fait aisément oublier l'impossibilité de regarder la version prolongée en français car celle-ci présente un défaut de synchronisation de la bande sonore. Dommage car Universal aurait signé là un sans faute. Quoi qu'il en soit ne boudez pas votre plaisir, la version originale n'a aucunement besoin qu'on étire la sauce.

Yes, its great that Universal FINALLY released this movie on DVD, but they really should have included with it a copy of the originally edited film. I love this film so much that I will have to go buy a VCR just to watch my old wore out copy of BB (my 4th copy lol) because the unedited one just screws up the whole flow and feel to the movie. The extended scenes are interesting, but this movie is NOT the blues brothers. My recommendation to you, if by some chance you havent seen it yet is to buy this film on VHS first, watch it, then get the DVD....

I first saw this flick many years ago & showed it to my young children - telling them to ignore the swearing - because the premise is good. This is Belushi humor at it's best.

The blues brothers offers so much more than a film. The music is so great and the musicians are awesome. I could watch this movie every day.
