Re: The Prison Genre Cliche Thread

While I'm not really into these movies, don't the prisons tend to be old-school and grimy?  I've seen Lockdown or whatever that series was called and the prisons now actually kind of look like schools, lots of light, bright walls, everything's meant to assault the senses in a sort of way so that anything out of the ordinary can be easily noticed.  But that looks kinda crummy on film so they take a page from the past.

Oh, and this is a problem I've been mulling on for WAY too long, if you have a movie in prison everyone's wearing the same thing and that's pretty bloody boring, so your main cast needs variations on the outfits, and there's only so many of those you can do.
