Hey everybody! How are you all doing this fine day? Well I hope? I am super excited to be posting on my arts and entertainment blog today as it is about the second installment of one of my favourite movies of all time, Trainspotting! The original movie was released in 1996 and was hugely popular. It has been released on DVD and you can find cheap and affordable bargains on all things to do with Trainspotting over at http://www.easyprices.com/. Just check out the range of product that they have despite the original film being 20 years old. That proves its popularity if nothing else does. Before I get onto to talking about the second movie, I just wanted to thank those who emailed in regarding my last blog post. It was great to hear your opinions and points of view. I am glad that you enjoyed it as much as you did and found it useful and informative. If you would like to give me some ideas about what to blog about in future please don’t hesitate to drop me a line and tell me what you would like me to talk about. Also don’t forget to opt in with your name and email address to be the first to find out about our upcoming promotions! I would not want you to miss out! Right then! Onwards! Let us get back on subject and get talking about today’s post topic. T2 Trainspotting! This movie is going to be awesome and even Irvine Welsh, the author of the original Trainspotting novel, has been quoted as saying that T2 will be better than the original. That is certainly some claim and I can’t wait to see if it is true!
T2 Trainspotting is loosely based on the novel Porno which is a continuation to the original novel, both penned by Irvine Welsh. Both movies are directed by Academy Award Winner Danny Boyle. The new movie will depict the lives of the original cast members 20 years on from the events of Trainspotting as they all come back together having all gone their separate ways of sorts at the conclusion of the original film. Franco is still just as unhinged, Spud dysfunctional and Sickboy as sly and conspiring. Anti-hero Mark Renton also returns and meets up with ex-girlfriend Diane. All kinds of debauchery and craziness ensues as you would expect from this motley crew of Scottish working class reprobates making for an awesome piece of entertainment with a touch of nostalgia. Absolutely brilliant! It is scheduled for release in January 2017 and will be available to view in cinemas the world over. It will find its way onto DVD at some point and no doubt be made available via Netflix, Amazon Prime, iTunes and Android TV Box. It promises to be one of the highlights of the 2017 movie schedule and will certainly be the best British film of that year. I really cannot wait! I bet you can’t either! Not long to wait!

Wow! As you can see I am uber excited about this movie! It really is going to be one of the highlights of 2017 for me. But I am also looking forward to seeing Hell or High Water which is a neo-western featuring Jeff Bridges. It has been ranked at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes! It is that good apparently! Have any of you seen it? What did you think? Why not drop me a line at the usual address to let me know what you thought. Do you think it is worth a 98% ranking? Let me know your thoughts people!
