Editorial Reviews

Dudley does right! Dudley Moore is Arthur, the irrepressible, irresponsible playboy who faces marriage to a woman he detests to keep his fortune…and then meets the right woman (Liza Minnelli) from the wrong side of the tracks. John Gielgud won an Academy Award® (1981's Best Supporting Actor) as Arthur's acerbic valet. "I'll alert the media," he says when Arthur announces his intention to take a bath. The title tune also won Oscar® gold for Original Song. A business deal bilks Arthur out of his fortune and he must (egad!) get a job in the sequel Arthur 2 on the Rocks. But laughs are still the common currency as Moore, Minnelli and Gielgud return. Enjoy!

By Marty Gillis TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 27, 2012
Format: Blu-ray
'Arthur' is a true classic. After Dudley Moore's star rose , starting with 'Foul Play' and continuing with the great '10', 'Arthur' is a film with an almost perfect script, casting, music, production design and direction. It succeeds in pulling your heart strings and stands up as well today as it ever did, maybe even more so. 'Arthur 2- On The Rocks' , while enjoyable, is an anemic squeal at best but at times succeeds in capturing some small glimpses of it's predecessors genius and warmth.

With that said, this review will focus on the actual video and sound quality rather than the film itself so you the reader can decide whether this Blu Ray disc is a good upgrade from your standard VHS or DVD versions.

This release of both the original 1981 'Arthur' and it's 1988 sequel 'Arthur 2-On The Rocks' is presented on one 50GB BD housed in yet another el-cheapo "eco case" with no real artwork on the disc itself other than the film's titles. No extras other than the original film trailers are included.

So how does 'Arthur' fare on Blu ray? Is it worth your hard earned cash and what should you expect? This movie is one of my all time favorites and I have to admit to being disappointed somewhat in this BD presentation.

For starters, both films have been cropped slightly from their original aspect ratios to fill our HDTV screens. It is nothing too drastic but I always prefer seeing films the way they were shot, not minding a bit of black border here and there.

Bottom line is this: For now, this is the BEST 'Arthur' has looked (or probably ever WILL look) on home video. Nevertheless, the original film sports a slightly troubled transfer.

It was a good deal for the money (two films on Blu-Ray for under $15). I watched the first movie and didn't feel ripped off like I did watching some other Blu-Rays (First Blood and Total Recall), but was not impressed. The video quality was okay, but not great (I suspect better than a standard DVD). There was little or no grain, but it just did not look that great. But, it was okay for a movie that old, and at that price. The audio was "DTS-HD Master Audio", but was in MONO! What is the point of that?

I put in the second movie (Arthur 2) and immediately noticed grain. I didn't think it looked as good as the first movie. I skipped through it, and there was grain throughout the movie. But still, probably better than a standard DVD, which I have never seen. Grain just bothers me. I don't think you should see it on a Blu-Ray disc. The second movie had stereo sound at least, which was still a disappointment, but better than the original Arthur (first movie).

Still a good deal at this price, unless you are a big fan of the "Arthur" movies.

I love this film and on the surface it may not sound like anything special, underneath is a very touching, smart and funny film. The writing and performances are brilliant with absolutely flawless timing by all. Watching the film on Blu Ray I was amazed how many lines I quote from this film, there is at least one per scene.

Dudley Moore plays the drunken Arthur to perfection making him fun and sympathetic rather than an obnoxious bore. John Gielgud is superb as Arthur's acid tongued butler who won an Oscar (and deservingly so) for his performance. Liza Minnelli's comic timing with Moore and Gielgud is priceless. Geraldine Fitzgerald and the rest of the cast are all in top form in this delightfully comedy. The new Blu Ray release isn't going to blow anyone away, but it looks better than it ever has on home video and probably better than it ever will. The same goes for the sound, this film never had a blistering soundtrack and the Blu Ray is simple and clear.

Part of the problem is that films from the 80's seem to have a soft look to them to begin with. The film does look very good though and I think it's worth upgrading because the film is a classic. There are no extras, but we do get the disappointing sequel. Lightning was caught in a bottle the first time and things would have been better off left alone. A classic comedy that is smart insightful and totally hilarious!

Such a great, GREAT film (I'm referring to the original Arthur, not Arthur 2, PLEASE no Arthur 2!), but the Blu-ray leaves a LOT to be desired.

Since when do RECENT Blu-ray releases of a MULTIPLE OSCAR WINNING FILM get released with 1.0 (yes, you read that right) audio on the Blu-ray? How is this acceptable??

Truly a shame for such a great film. It deserved a better release, and has for years now.

This review concerns the quality of the blu-ray, not the content of the motion pictures.

This "2-Movie Collection" hits the pavement as a "1-Blu-Ray Disc" in extended play mode. That is, both movies are on 1-side of a single blu-ray disc and in doing so, the 1080p resolution is significantly diminished. In fact, when I compared it to a DVD from the "Three Stooges Ultimate Collection," the Three Stooges DVD looked as good as Arthur. That's a huge compliment for the Stooges, but an unfortunate blow to Dudley Moore fans who, like me, love this film. I hate to say it, but this is the worst looking blu-ray from the many I have seen. The resolution just isn't there.

Conclusion: 1 star because the blu-ray did function (the audio was ok); 1 star for value, but zero stars for the presentation of the material.

As a postscript, it is troubling that value-minded marketeers are now diminishing the excellent quality of the blu-ray format. Blu-ray as a format has had a relatively slow rate of household penetration compared to DVD. The blu-ray format is finally beginning to take hold, but it is a giant step backward to release films in a blu-ray of only moderate resolution. If this becomes a trend, buyers may decide blu-ray does not really hold a meaningful advantage over DVD (many commercial DVDs are recorded in 480p), and this will slow the popularity of blu-rays.
