This week, we conclude our discussion on the 2020 summer movie season by taking on a film we still can’t believe got a theatrical release, no matter how small: INFAMOUS, directed by Joshua Caldwell and starring the one and only Bella Thorne. The noted thespian plays a fame-thirsty, white trash Floridian who hooks up with a local ex-con and goes on a crime spree across the U.S., adding as many followers to her Instagram as she does zeros to her bank account. But as the film bravely asks, at what cost? All of this is simply a jumping off point for co-hosts Luke and Steve to discuss their thoughts on OnlyFans, social media, and the limitless appeal of former Disney stars gone bad. They have never sounded older or crankier.
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 become untethered in the thriller UNHINGED, directed by Derrick Borte. Russell Crowe plays a mentally unstable incel who is no longer hinged due to a severe bout of road rage, and he is about to make the life of single mother a living hell. Dude only wanted a courtesy tap; now he is 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.
