This was a real hoot - if you like your ham well-cooked. Fabulous to hear all these actors spicca da ingleesh wid da Italiano mamma mia pizza pie accent! Tremendous production design too. Much better than Ridley Scott's previous All The Money In The World. The only aspect of the movie that annoyed me, was the really amateurish soundtrack. All the contemporary music was thrown on, completely irrespective of the time the movie was depicting (eg. Giorgio Moroder disco at the beginning of the 1970s and George Michael's Faith at a wedding set at the end of the 1970's). Lazy use of popular opera arias too. And why no UHD? The Last Duel got one.

Interesting that you like this film more than All The Money In The World- a film I liked. Might have to blind-buy this one- more interested in this than The Last Duel (I think Affleck and Damon are miscast in period piece films- my opinion).

I said on the West Side Story thread, that the marketing execs over at 20th Century Studios should take a look at the trailer for House Of Gucci. When I saw it, I immediately wanted to see the movie. It was a smart and great preview, unlike the trailer I saw for West Side Story, which was decidedly lacklustre (and did everything it could to downplay the fact that it was a musical). You're not really blind-buying the film, after you've seen the trailer.

It's a must-see if you like movies where everyone is doing a Henry Armetta impression.

Universal handles home video for United Artists Releasing, a newly formed division of MGM. Bond, Licorice Pizza and Gucci all came out through United Artists Releasing.

I'm not sure how Universal ended up with the Addams Family animated movies.

Warner Bros still has MGM's catalog titles.

That said, Universal and Warner merged their home video into Studio Distribution Services, and the upcoming Daniel Craig UHD 5-pack, which combines 4 Warner titles and 1 Universal title, has neither studio logo on it, just the SDS logo.

I'm curious to see who was the producer for the special features on this. Ever since Charles de Lauzirika stopped making them for Ridley's movies, they've gotten progressively worse.

Universal is notorious for having scant features for their releases, only classic films with big anniversaries get worthwhile features.

Don't listen to Wikipedia's false claims. Not all UA Releasing-distributed movies including the MGM titles are handled by Universal, the only ones handled by that studio are the movies they handle international theatrical distribution of (including the ones you mentioned), just like how certain movies that MGM partnered on/co-produced post-bankruptcy are handled on home video by their other partners. Warner (and previously Fox) is distributing MGM's TV and digital content and certain new film releases (including Creed II, Wrath of Man, and films under the Orion banner) on home video too, in addition to the library. The only official deal between MGM and Universal was for No Time to Die, because Universal was looking for another international franchise to supplement their own lineup of franchises.

As I pointed out when we discussed this at blu-ray.com, I didn't base my post on information from Wikipedia.

I was trying to give a simplified answer that was mostly meant to separate MGM's new films from their catalog titles.

Some people heard that Warners now had the MGM catalog and assumed that also meant they would do all new releases, which isn't the case. Universal has handled US home video for a significant group of MGM's new releases through their United Artists Releasing arm. Like you mentioned, those are titles Universal handled overseas distribution on as well.

It's true, it's an enormously complex situation, with UA Releasing titles coming out through multiple home video distributors. I didn't intend to mislead anyone with my comments, I was only trying to offer a simple distinction between old catalog titles and new releases.

The other UA Releasing titles were by other companies too, and they're not just from MGM, but also Orion and Annapurna (the other partner in the joint venture). The Orion titles went through Warner and Fox and Annapurna's titles were originally handled by Fox. Wrath of Man went through Warner and the physical media release of Flag Day was self-distributed on MOD.

MGM's ongoing TV and digital series including Vikings and The Handmaid's Tale are still handled by Warner, because TV and streaming are MGM's main priorities.

Very true, the mess of companies and nameplates involved is all thoroughly confusing.

Orion is just like UA Releasing, it's not really an actual independent company, it's more a nameplate/division within MGM, using the name of the onetime studio from the 80s, whose assets MGM bought a while back. Annapurna is legitimately a separate company, it's true, they partnered with MGM for theatrical distribution purposes.

And yep, Warner does also handle MGM's TV, that seems to be part of why The Handmaid's Tale S4 is only getting a DVD and not a Blu-Ray. :(

My focus in my explanation was separating the bulk of MGM's theatrical catalog (which, confusingly, doesn't even include any actual MGM films pre-1986, of course, it's mostly old UA, Orion and Polygram titles) from MGM's new theatrical releases.
