Film: T2 Trainspotting

A 20th anniversary of one of the most prominent films of the 90's sees a follow-up.

It's quite a lengthy gap between films but it doesn't feel it, such is its influence.

The soundtrack is mostly reworkings of the original soundtrack with a very slowed down Born Slippy and a more upbeat Lust for Life (is that possible?). The Eno track sounds much the same as I remember it. 

The film is still heavily biased to the more run-down elements of Scotland but it's nice to see Irn Bru product placement instead of Coca Cola :)

A very good nostalgic sequel that leans on the first film heavily but that's alright.
