Arthur (Blu-ray) – When I heard they were remaking the 1981 comedy ArthurI thought “Oh great, another useless remake.” Sure enough, the end result is a useless remake. Russell Brand takes a crack at the out-of-control rich brat who is cut off from his inheritance if he doesn’t marry a snobby rich girl who he hates (played by Jennifer Garner). Although I love Brand, he’s no Dudley Moore, and the jokes here are few and far between. Helen Mirren and Greta Gerwig help bring some life to the film, but overall it’s not worth wasting two hours on. The Blu-ray is decent quality but not required viewing for this film. Special features include behind the scenes footage, a gag reel, additional scenes, and more. A regular DVD and digital copy of the film are included as well. Film ** Blu-ray ** (2 out of 5 stars).
