Episode #250: House of Gucci

December 8, 2021

We did it everyone, 250 podcasts! Wow that’s a whole lot of talk about movies. For today’s pod the guys grant Leza Live and Local’s request with a review of the House of Gucci. Not Gucci topics include a new Paramount Pictures movie giveaway, cheap vs expensive, and Ghostbusters trivia.

House of Gucci is a family drama on steroids. This is a wild true story about deceit, deception, and murder. Directed by the infamous Ridley Scott this film follows the rise and assassination of Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver, by his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani played by Lady Gaga. House of Gucci is a great movie but it’s not for everyone. It is very long and the story is only known by those who pay attention to the fashion world. What really sets this movie apart is the acting. House of Gucci has a ton of big names at the top of their game. The actors that excelled in their roles were Al Pacino and Jared Leto but everyone did an incredible job. 

Mike and Matt both agree this is a great film but it is not a must see in the theaters. Matt awards House of Gucci 3.5 out of 5 Reels because of the incredible performances. Mike was not a huge fan of the film giving it 2.5 out of 5 Reels.

For next week Mike picked an oldie but a goodie. The 1983 Oscar nominated film Trading Places starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd. Thank you for your continued support of our podcast and we will chat at you next week.
