    I have a decent home theater at my house. Good TV, nice sound and comfortable chair to enjoy my movies but it’s no secret that I prefer seeing movies in the theater. Beverly Hills Cop is a perfect example of why. BHC is a fun, fast-paced, funny movie that took perfect advantage of Eddie Murphy’s comedic and acting skills and it was made for a big screen and loud speakers. He was just hitting his stride after 48 Hrs. and Trading Places when he made this movie. It starts off with great songs from Glenn Frey and The Pointer Sisters with a montage of the streets of Detroit and a police chase of a truck through the back streets and alleys with exploding fruit carts and absolutely demolished vehicles. I came across it the other day and intended to watch a little and move on but my enjoyment of it came flooding back and I watched until the end. Martin Brest, the director, has only directed 7 full-length feature films and they run the gamut of great to terrible, (as in, Midnight Run, Scent of a Woman, Gigli) but he nailed it with Beverly Hills Cop. A really great bad guy and terrific supporting characters. It’s also fun to see some actors playing bit parts before they became bigger names.
