Universal brings the off-the-wall comedy The Blues Brothers to DVD in a collector's edition with an expanded version of the film, a decent 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital Surround Sound, and plenty of background material. Aside from the 15 minutes of extra footage, the highlight of the disc is The Stories Behind the Making of The Blues Brothers, an hour- long documentary featuring every participant from the film, conveniently accessible through a menu of 14 chapters. Star and co-writer Dan Aykroyd explains how a joke that he and best friend John Belushi shared with friends evolved from a Saturday Night Live skit to a best-selling album and then to a film. Director John Landis covers the difficult production, from the outrageous stunts to Belushi's disappearances from the set. Along with interviews with the bandmates and a stellar group of cameo musicians (Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway), there is old footage of Belushi discussing the film. A generous set of production photos and the theatrical trailer round out a satisfying package of features for this comedy favorite.
Includes footage not seen since the original 1980 Picwood preview
"The Making of The Blues Brothers," featuring interviews with director John Landis, Dan Aykroyd, The Blues Brothers Band, producer Robert K. Weiss Never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage
This is one of the funniest movies ever. Belushi and Aykroyd are incredible. I’ve watched this movie 20 times, but this is the first copy I have ever owned.
This review is from The Blues Brothers [Limited Edition] [Includes Digital Copy] [UltraViolet] [SteelBook] [Blu-ray] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best movie ever!
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
The 4K version of this movie has some of the best scenes that are clearer and more vibrant than the regular blu-ray. But there are some scenes that are about the same because they were shot with a different camera so you can only work with what you have! Other than that, Great performances from John Belushi (who has sadly passed away) and Dan Ackroyd, great music, tons of cameos from well known musicians and actors, laugh out loud moments are plentiful! Plus it's a great story and well written script! Greatest movie ever!! Must see! Very funny classic movie!
This steelbook has the best artwork the blues brothers has had on physical media.
The stained glass mirror design that both the front and back have is perfect for the films & brothers motif “where on a mission from god” that immortalizes the brothers like you would an biblical figure and the blues mobile gets the same holy treatment.
Phenomenal film that has aged like wine.
I totally enjoyed seeing this movie again...I had forgotten many of the parts and had to laugh at them once again...the picture is much better than previous recordings...a little too grainy in parts, but overall good transfer.
The sound is totally awesome...remixed just right...wow what great music..."We are on a mission from God"
After the release of Jake Blues from prison, he and brother Elwood go to visit "The Penguin", the last of the nuns who raised them in a boarding school. They learn the Archdiocese will stop supporting the school and will sell the place to the Education Authority. The only way to keep the place open is if the $5000 tax on the property is paid within 11 days. The Blues Brothers want to help, and decide to put their blues band back together and raise the money by staging a big gig. As they set off on their "mission from God" they seem to make more enemies along the way. Will they manage to come up with the money in time?
So I have been a fan of Blues Brothers ever since my dad made me watch it in my youth. It's a 5-star movie for me. The steelbook here while nothing fancy wise was the same price as the regular release so I opted for the Best Buy exclusive. The video looks the best it has ever, but it's the DTS-X surround audio track that completely wowed me! I never heard anything like that since the 2001 4K release. It's absolutely ferocious and monstrous. The Blues Brothers has never sounded better and I don't think it's possible to ever improve upon this release.
My review of The Blues Brothers is for the Blu-ray only and not the 4K. The picture is warm and vibrant with colors in many scenes and doesn't look at all dated film wise.
The music which is as important as the visuals are also a stand out on this.
This also contains an extended version which is nice to have but not entirely essential with the exception of seeing John Lee Hooker's performance in it's entirety.
Priced at a very reasonable low price for a 4K and a Blu-ray combination. A definite must own. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is one of my favorite class 80’s movies.
Finally in 4K.
Included is both the Regular AND Extended movies and both in 4K which is great.
The digital code is 4K which is great. However NONE of the streaming services have it in 4K so you can only stream in 1080P. Disappointing. Also the digital code only redeems for Regular version, even though Extended is also on streaming you don’t get it with the redemption.
