After a long pandemic of barely any Blu-ray releases, we’re back with a House of Gucci Blu-ray review. Is it worth adding to your collection?
It has been some time since we had a Blu-ray to review, and MGM was kind enough to provide us with a copy of House of Gucci to break that dry spell. Based on a true story, it feels like something only a writer could have come up with with this much intrigue, subterfuge, and people fighting to control a world-famous fashion brand.
The new Blu-ray set comes with the film on both DVD and Blu-ray – there is also a digital code included – and for the purposes of this review we only checked out the Blu-ray. The transfer, to be frank, is gorgeous. To the point I actually double-checked it wasn’t a 4K copy. The film looks crisp and pristine and was visually a pleasure to watch. With so many rich textures and colors at play in this film, the transfer lives up to it and is a beautiful presentation.
Where we did find the Blu-ray faltered was in the bonus materials. With so many talented people involved with this film, it felt as though it was more deserving than three short featurettes that felt more like canned videos sent out to the press and awards show voters.
If you’re looking for a crisp presentation of House of Gucci, you can’t go wrong with this Blu-ray. If you’re looking for more than that, you will find yourself left wanting to be sure.
