The Blues Brothers
.........................................What do you get when you put two white guys in dark suits and sunglasses and then have them show-up a host of black people in their own cultural tradition? Fuck White Stripes. Fuck Eric Clapton. Fuck Monster Mike whateverthefuck. It’s called Cultural Imperialism, and all y’all that enjoy this movie for the song-and-dance routines of Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, and James Brown – y’all should have your heads examined. “Four Fried Chickens and a Coke?” The only sweet spot is riding up the Cook County Assessor’s office elevator while “Girl From Ipanema” is playing on the elevator muzak – that’s funny. John Belushi died a dog’s death, and Dan Ackroyd’s funniest shit is still from the 70’s – this movie is totally Soul Plane 1980.
