Trainspotting (1996)


We would have injected vitamin C if only they had made it illegal!
So basically: Mark Renton and his mates Sick Boy, Spud, Begbie, and Tommy escape the boring landscape of life through the use of heroin. However, they decide to give up the habit and earn a respectable living ... at least until they discover just how bleak society is. Renton's parents have other plans for him, though, and force him to go clean.

My summary really doesn't do this movie justice. All of the characters are brilliantly cast (and strangely, as I know most of them from other roles, which are complete opposites of their Trainspotting characters) and come together to create an awesome collection of characters.

This movie is one of those that you either love or hate, and for that I don't think it should be on the list.

Ziggi seal of disapproval!


  1. Oh this is the next one I'm going to review. Watched it last night, and I loved it. A lot better than Requiem for a Dream.

  2. I'm glad! I watched this movie one night [before the list] and absolutely fell in love with it.
    Omg! I know! I hated Requiem!

  3. So why the seal of disapproval? =)

  4. Because I don't think it's watchable for everyone, or a vast majority. It's just one of those movies

  6. A lot of peοple sρend emоtionallу when it comes to clоthing foг theіr κіds, and
    buy thеm much more than theу need-
    οr higher quality items that will јust gеt trashed oг outgrown after а cοuρle of wears.
    Secоnd, they arе lіttle destroyers of anything fabric.

  10. Thеse cars are eaѕy tο get into and out οf since they don't sit quite as high as an SUV. A pay increase (which includes changing your withholding in this case), should not trigger a bump in monthly spending. For very foul smells, try sprinkling some lemon juice on the carpet because it has a strong aroma and will combat the smells that are bad.
