Watched it today for like the 50th time and it's still a dark and depressing but thrilling ride down the pop sinkhole. The characters are over-the-top, yeah, but unless you are/were a drug addict in Edinburgh, how'd ya know?


8.7/10



P.S. I've read the book after I first saw it and thought it was very good (not as great as the movie though), however I never had the guts to go through the sequel (Porno, 2002), but now that I saw the cast from TS are seriously thinking of getting together for the sequel, I'm thinking of giving it a chance. Should I bother?

Don't bother reading Porno. Don't bother reading anything by Welsh again. He's trash.

Just wait for Boyle to make his work into something worthwhile if it happens again. I HATE Welsh's writing stlye so much I want to die thinking about it at this very moment--and I am HIGH as fuck, so I shouldn't even be thinking about it since it's just going to upset me. Oh well. Thanks dude. Grin

I ain't much of a fan of his, but I've read TS after I first saw the movie, and for whatever reason thought it was good (yeah, OK, I maybe was influenced by the movie, I'm not ruling that possibility out). But also for whatever reason I never cared much for his other stuff, not enough to read it anyway, if he's as bad as you're sayin', let's call it a hunch. So, style and all that aside, just in simple words, as one more educated redneck to another that is less educated on the matter, is it entertaining enough as a sequel or not?
