Empty flat, screaming haircut, Four and 12 angry men

First of all, the good news.

Our scum that is non-paying tenants moved out of the flat today… It’s now empty. The bad news being that we obviously don’t have any replacement tenants yet, but we’re advertising again soon. So if you know anyone who wants to rent a reasonably priced 3 bedroom flat, let me know!

We cut Elliot’s hair yesterday and it’s a good thing that our tenants had moved out, otherwise they would have thought that we were torturing him with all the screaming (he’s not to fund of haircuts). He seems to have recovered and is in a better mood today… As can be seen from the photo below.

Happened to see that the trailer for Silent Hill has recently made its way online. Unlike other game adaptations, this actually looks reasonably good. I just hope it keeps the utterly freaky atmosphere of the game, but things are looking promising.

It can be found here:

Films watched:
12 Angry Men
Picked this up in the Amazon sale.

It’s just such a simple premise for a movie. Almost the entire film is set in one room, with 12 members of a jury, 11 of which are convinced that a teenager accused of murder is guilty, whilst 1 believes that there is reasonable doubt that he isn’t guilty.

All the different jurors are from different background and have different ideals and prejudices, and this one man (Peter Fonda) is doing his best to put his case forward.

A great character study and a wonderful film.
