Re: T2: Trainspotting - (2017, D: Danny Boyle) S: McGregor, Miller, Bremner, Carlyle

I saw the first movie in the cinema back in 95 or 96 on release and i hated it. The movie grew on me with subsequent viewings at home. Not sure how i feel about this....and get a feeling its going to end up with a lot of people hoping they managed to bring back the magic of the original, but leaving disappointed. These characters now look like typical 40 somethings and not the drug addicted fuck wits of the original which made interesting viewing.

I'm ashamed to say that I never fully watched Trainspotting. I've seen bits and pieces over the years. And then I more-or-less watched it one time on IFC or something. But never sat down and gave it my full attention.

I'm with you here. I ***hated*** this movie when I first saw it. But loved the soundtrack. Over time, I liked the film more and more. And now? I think it's great. Same thing happened to me with "Fight Club". But this sequel looks AMAZING! That is also one of the best trailers I've ever seen.

Re: T2: Trainspotting - (2017, D: Danny Boyle) S: McGregor, Miller, Bremner, Carlyle

This is my friend's thoughts from the UK:

"I loved it. It's different to Trainspotting in many ways, much of the uses nostalgia on, however it doesn't indulge without good cause. I smiled through most of the film, and there were a couple of tear jerker moments."

Between metacritic and RT this is getting pretty mixed reviews. I don't know if I could take it if I don't like this movie.

I just watched the original again over the weekend and it is a miracle of editing. To make a cohesive story out of the source material is unbelievable. The pace of the movie is perfect and the casting is as well. I hope this one does as well with Porno as Trainspotting did.

The movie isn't an adaptation of Porno.

You're wrong Dex. Taken straight from Wiki:

"The screenplay is based on Porno, with characters and elements lifted from the novel Trainspotting."

What is your comment based on?
