The Blues Brothers

200px-Bluesbrothersmovieposter.jpgOn Tuesday I finished watching The Blues Brothers (1980,R). It's one of those films that I don't enjoy so much as appreciate as a classic. It also gives me an idea for Halloween costumes for the boys. From the Wikipedia entry:

The story is a tale of redemption for paroled convict Jake and his brother Elwood, who take on "a mission from God" to save the Roman Catholic orphanage in which they grew up from closure. To do so they must re-form their rhythm and blues band, the Blues Brothers, and organize a performance to earn $5,000 to pay the tax assessor. Along the way they are targeted by a destructive "mystery woman," Neo-Nazis, and a country and western band – all while being relentlessly pursued by the police, and eventually the military and a SWAT team.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
