    House of Gucci

    ★★

    This was the last movie my wife and I went out to see as AMC members and it was sort of partly responsible for us stopping our weekly dates at the movie theater.

    We began to see a pattern of new movies where we were just going to go, not because we really wanted to see the movie. This one fits that bill. Is it a bad movie? No, the acting is decent and the storyline is somewhat interesting, but…

    ★★★★

    Doesn't have as much camp and humor as the original Ghostbusters movie, but is a more than compelling mystery involving an excellent cast of both youth and experienced actors. Add in some cool CGI effects and some awesome (more than) cameos and this movie has everything a sequel of a beloved original should have.

    What it lacks with a living Harold Ramis, it makes up with heart and dedication. Definitely go see this one if you loved the original and keep an open mind. It's really, really good.

    ★★★★½

    The one continuous camera shot might seem like a gimmick, but it's the real deal. Just try and figure out where the film is cut from the beginning. It's an engaging way to shoot this film that adds a level of depth and immersion that accentuates the overall story and creates a compelling viewing experience.

    It's a simple plot, yet effectively told through the camerawork and mostly two actor focus. Two soldiers,…
