    Watched the first one last week (not seen it in a good 10+ years) and was struck by how good it was still. Is it this weekend that the new once comes out? il try and get to see it on the big screen I think as the reviews seem fairly positive from what I've seen.

    I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about with the first film.

    Watched the original again last nt. Very of its time and not bad I thought but again not a patch on the book it was adapted from. Read pretty much everything Irvine Welsh has put out.

    Would imagine a trip to the cinema to see the sequel next week with Mrs B will be in order.

    Lol - I'm surprised at that. Thought it'd be right up your street! Loved it myself, and like Rich, watched the original last night. Defo going to see the new one, too!

    Saw the original for the first time last night. I thought it was excellent, with the four main characters convincingly portrayed by the actors. I was prepared for it to be a bit gruesome at times, but what I didn't expect was to be drawn into their worldview quite so powerfully. Very memorable film. Certainly the ending gives ample opportunity to develop the sequel.

    For those of a more delicate disposition, I saw A Street Cat Named Bob the other week Similar theme of addiction, but sanitised for a more delicate audience. Actually, I thought Bob was the best actor in it, even if he's now a bit overweight to play his younger stray-cat self

    Yep I'll be going to see it at the pictures. Really enjoyed the book and watched the film again last night and still believe it's one of the best films of the 90's. Great directing, great cast.

    Got a couple of tickets to see this at the wonderfully vintage Tyneside Cinema this afternoon.

    Looking forward to it.
