Episode Description: This week, we continue our look at 2020’s very strange summer movie season by tackling the first wide release of the summer — and it was a doozy. Hinges are no longer hinged in the thriller Unhinged, directed by Derrick Borte. Russell Crowe plays a mentally unstable incel who who suffers the titular consequence thanks to severe bout of road rage, and he is about to make the life of a single mother a living hell. Dude only wanted a courtesy tap, and now look at him — completely without hinges. Does this modern-day exploitation flick deliver the goods? Is a man strapped to a chair, set on fire, and used as a human shield? And what was the catering budget on this film, anyway? All will be addressed.
