‘T2 Trainspotting’ Review

2 February 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Anjela Nedyalkova, Kelly Macdonald | Written by John Hodge | Directed by Danny Boyle

20 years on, the idea of a sequel to a film that was so entrenched in a time and place in modern British history might seem like folly. And while it’s not as bad as it could have been, T2 Trainspotting (as it’s clunkily named) struggles to find a personality or a cultural relevance of its own. It tries hard – too hard – and ends up being a cover version as dodgy as the remixes that dominate its soundtrack.

First we find a middle-aged Renton (Ewan McGregor), running on a treadmill. Still running. Always running but getting nowhere. He’s living in Amsterdam, but he’s drawn back to Edinburgh. There, Spud (Ewen Bremner) has barely moved on. The clocks changed for British summertime and he got confused »

The little link between Moon and Sunshine

Moon director Duncan Jones put a "sly aside" to Danny Boyle's Sunshine in his film, he's revealed...

Two British directors made two fascinating science fiction films in the 2000s. Danny Boyle gave the world the terrific Sunshine in 2007, and Duncan Jones’ debut feature, Moon, arrived in 2009. The pair, though, have a little link between them, that was unearthed by Mark Kermode.

Kermode was hosting a screening of Moon in Truro last week, that he followed with an on-stage Q&A with Duncan Jones. And Jones revealed that there’s a little tribute to Sunshine within Moon.

“Apparently, Moon and Sunshine at one point were slightly in competition”, Kermode said. “And that’s why, in Moon, there’s a burst of Katrina & The Waves doing Walking On Sunshine”.

Jones was apparently very aware of the competition between Sunshine and Moon when putting his movie together, and thus »

The Danny Boyle sci-fi short film we never got to see

Shot well over 18 years ago, Danny Boyle's sci-fi short film Alien Love Triangle has never been released - despite a starry cast...

In the late 90s, two very different filmmakers were still in the (relatively) early stages of their careers. Mexican director Guillermo del Toro had released his first feature, Cronos (1993) to widespread acclaim. The UK's Danny Boyle had captured the zeitgeist with his second movie, Trainspotting, and was about to embark on his next film, A Life Less Ordinary (1997).

Had everything gone to plan, del Toro and Boyle could have wound up directing their own chapters of a three-part anthology movie - the sci-fi equivalent of, say, Amicus Productions' portmanteau horror films of the 60s and 70s, such as The House That Dripped Blood »

Halo: the Neill Blomkamp movie we never got to see

It could have been the first blockbuster videogame adaptation, but instead, it fell apart. Ryan looks at the Halo movie that never was...

From Super Mario Bros in the 90s and on to the recent Assassin’s Creed, it’s fair to say that movies adapted from videogames seldom fare well. But there’s one movie, now sadly lost to history, that might just have bucked that trend: Neill Blomkamp’s Halo.

In 2001, Halo: Combat Evolved was the game that helped launch Microsoft’s first ever console, the Xbox. A first-person shooter with an absorbing sci-fi plot and a cool character at its core - the anonymous, armoured super-soldier, Master Chief - Halo »
