    Re: Blues Brothers

    They both have good qualities and so it is a hard choice.

    Orginal has Jake in it which is a plus and the driving through the shopping centre is a classic scene. Plus has cab calloway in it.

    But 2000 does have B.B King and the ever so great Blues Traveller. But think classic line up of Jake and Elwood clinches it. Also it was original that really introduced me to my love of blue music.

    Re: Blues Brothers

    At the risk of being flamed - I couldn't see what the fuss was all about.

    Where's the option: As bad as each other?

    I have them both on DVD so it's not as if I've not tried to get into them, it just doesn't do it for me.

    Sorry

    If I were someone who flamed people, I'd be lighting that match right now!

    Do you actually have taste in music?

    ... by which I mean that the original film is a classic and the remake a big smelly pile of poo.

    What you got to remember about Blues Brothers it introduced people to Blues music who may never ad listen to it but hearing it on Sat night live or the films made people go and seek out original artist to those songs.

    Blues brothers would never work today (hence why 2000 never really made it big) it like punk came along at right time and served a purpose.

    LOL To give you a taste of what I like here are the last concerts I went to:

    Marilyn Manson
    Nightwish
    Nightwish
    Marilyn manson
    Iron Maiden
    Jules Holland

    etc..

    Erm ... plus three Kylie ones intermingled in there somewhere (a wife thing I hasten to add).

    Taste is subjective don't you think?
