Just saw Trainspotting 2.
This is a movie that could've been, well, probably not a disaster, but not very good.
Thankfully it is in fact very good. It's quite a moving film about, on one hand, the emptiness of nostalgia, and on the other, the genuine friendships that make us long for the old days. By the end Danny Boyle, John Hodge, and the cast find the perfect balance between the two themes. Not to spoil anything, but the final shot of Renton, perfectly spliced with an iconic scene from the first movie, had me grinning from ear to ear.
