Streaming TV Guide For Week 28 of 2021 : Triumphs and Disappointments
ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI (2021)
DUEL (1971) – I rented this on Amazon, because after watching the disappointing UNHINGED I wanted to watch a good road rage movie. This is agreat movie, and I will be buying the Blu-ray.
THE MYSTERY OF A HANSOM CAB
UNHINGED (2020) – Starts good, loses it’s way in the 3rd act where it decides to become HOME ALONE meets TERMINATOR. Loses all interest that the build up generated by the irrational actions of the heroine. And yes I get these movies are all about suspension of disbelief, but that suspension has to be in context to the rules of the universe the film sets up. And this film just disregards its own buildup. “No lets not drive to a police station when pursued by a maniac, but rather lead him to an empty deserted house and play hide and seek with him. Yeah, that makes sense.” Moronic. It is this kind of fantastical, not grounded in reality or by consequences thinking that is at the heart of road rage, not the solution to it. In the real world that lack of thinking would have gotten her and hers killed.
