Simply Brilliant !!! T2 Trainspotting (review movie music and more)

in review •  2 years ago  (edited)

A couple of weeks ago I was able to watch the sequel to the movie Trainspotting.

In summary, a good sequel!

I think less controversial then the original one published back in 1996. Less hardcore drug influenced scenes. Less controversial since the topic drugs is getting less taboo by now. 20 years has passed for this sequel to be created. As a result, all main characters of the original movie also left 20 years behind with each one their own story. From a continuous drug addict, to a long jail timer, to a small time criminal and a one with a family in Amsterdam. All with there histories, destiny brings them together again causing omw fire again!

I still remember very well when and where I watched the first Transpotting. It was in a cinema in Slovenia. Original voices and Slovenian subtitles. At that time I was not very experienced in the English language, therefore all the strong dialects in the movie was terrible for me to follow. When back home, I had to re-watch the movie, but certainly this was not an issue at all. It was a pleasure to watch the movie again, a great movie!

Also the sequel is a movie I can watch another time! And I certainly will do so! I have it on my (free) on demand movie channel at least for another half a year, a lot of time to go far a couple reruns :)

My advise: Watch T2 Trainspotting at least ONE time!

Little further down this post I share with you the soundtrack of T2 Trainspotting. It is a mix between electronic and rock music with names such as Iggy Pop, Queen, Prodigy, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Underworld part of the playlist. All tracks I listened to many many many times and love to see them combined on a soundtrack like this one. Simply classics! GOOD classics! :)

For the fun of it, I also share another playlist created by a YouTuber with the title: "The Complete Fantasy Playlist". A playlist in similar music style to the original soundtrack of T2, but with total different bands and tracks.

In my opinion, interesting fact is the longing the protagonist has to the "good" old days and the confrontations that come along as the normal, family life seems to be impossible for him to have. So yeah, why not going back to the rocky, adventurous days?

Indeed, I dont want to spill the content, so I can't really respond in depth. Sure is, the good old days are not forgotten; Somehow they all didn't grow up; Somehow they try to do now; But also not. All of that makes this movie very interesting imho.

I can't remember how I got a CD of the first movie's soundtrack. I might have bought it because I loved the movie, but that doesn't seem likely...anyway, I loooved the first soundtrack. It was my exposure to all sorts of stuff I'd never paid much attention to, except Iggy who my big brother made sure I grew up with. I would play the CD every time I cleaned. Every time I needed a little pick me up or a reason to jump around.

Trainspotting 2 was okay, but didn't grab me like the first one. But I think I'll put on the playlist and jump around a bit. Thanks!

I know what you mean. Usually, the first is always the best, at least when going into a series/sequel mode :) Hope you still like some of the tracks on the T2 one.

Just found the original movie on YouTube, maybe not the best quality but you can watch he movie immediately, at least :)

very good dear... @adje
