British Crime

I folded a ton of laundry tonight. While doing that, I watched the movie Mean Machine. I didn't know a thing about the film when it started. Turns out it's a British remake of The Longest Yard.

Nothing spectacular, but a fun movie to kill some time. The crew of folks I like from the Guy Ritchie films were in this and did a good job of playing the various roles.

I was confused on one point. There is some significance to wearing a brown leather jacket with sheepskin lining in Britain. The head mobster wore it in a important scene and the characters reacted to him wearing it. I'm not sure what it means though.

Any Brits care to explain?

The TurboNet card for my Tivo arrived today. Due to the laundry, I didn't have time to install it. Hopefully tomorrow.

I have an early meeting tomorrow at 7AM so it's goodnight for now.
