I have a confession to make, I didn’t watch the original Trainspotting until last week, I’d muddled it up in my mind with Midnight Express, so enjoyed it but kept wondering when the train journey was going to happen!

With Stella now a Limitless member too we met and booked a couple of films for this week, first on the list had to be T2 Trainspotting.  A bereavement brings Renton (Ewen McGregor) back to Edinburgh and to a large degree bedlam breaks out as he revisits his past.  There were lots of references to the original film, so I think my timing was fine on that one, it was still fresh in my mind.  The film shows Edinburgh at its best and probably its worst too, it’s emotional, violent and gritty with some opportunities to laugh too.  I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Will you Learn anything?  Surprisingly I’d say yes, all I’ll say is 1690

Did I cry? I shed A tear, but no need for a tissue

Will you cry? I’d say not, I’m a bit of a softie!

Worth watching at the cinema?  Most definitely, the small screen is all well and good, but the music is a big part of the film again and the cinematography is worthy of a big screen
