I went to see the movie The Mechanic this afternoon. Has anyone else seen this yet? I was surprised to see Jason Statham playing a hit man who is an audiophile. In the movie, his character owns a really nice analog setup: high end turntable with a thick white acrylic paltter, a separate motor, separate preamp, I couldn't quite make out the cartridge (red), and a rack of vinyl albums. He plays LPs and cleans them by hand before playing them. He even uses a record clamp. First time I've seen this in a movie. -Spoiler alert- Early on in the movie, Statham warns his protégée not to touch his stereo system. Of course, at the end of the movie the protégée puts on an album to listen to and, well, he pays the price for doing so. Guess you could say this movie is partially about the perils of messing with another person's system.
