Trainspotting T2 | Review


Who's read the original Trainspotting book ? The part at the beginning they were at a pub drinking and mentions "McLean" and other names. Mclean is my dad, he's friends with Irvine Welsh.

We are always watching American movies, so I love when on the rare occasion a movie is made in Edinburgh. Trainspotting T2 was released in the UK on the 27th January and will be in cinemas in the USA on the 17th of March.

It was the best film I'd seen in a long time. My dad got abit excited when he spotted Irvine Welsh in the film. He kept nudging me, saying that's my mate haha. I've had people say they have never  heard of Edinburgh, so this really shows our city. Though New Yorkers said to me they used to think the Scottish were all high on heroin haha. We don't really take cocaine or heroin and our houses aren't decorated like the 1980's. My house is in fact is decorated New York theme. I like to think us Scottish are friendly people. Trainspotting T2 film shows the trams, Princes street, Edinburgh castle and Arthur's seat. Also a lot of the time in the film you see irn bru bottles in the background in houses during the film, that's so me. Am guilty of being an irn bru addict.

My favourite part of the film was when they were sitting drinking at Harvey Nichols and Veronica says - choose life. Renton says choose this and that and how we share our bio on Facebook with strangers. It's true the generation we live in, we blog and share our life. Things are different now a days. I love seeing people from all over the world visit my blog. I earn money blogging, but it's not a lot. I choose to blog, who knows where my blog will end up.
