Spud. I love the film but have to look away when he pokes his head around the door at the family having brekkie

As for the book ..... I've tried to read more than one Irvine Welsh book but ... nah, no chance.

imdb.com is your friend for all things film-related.

Ewen Bremne played Spud. The short part of his bio, on the main page, says "Frequently plays characters who are physically assaulted in some way..."

I LOVE that film! So graphic and wonderful...

You ain't wrong! Trainspotting was the very first film I saw in a cinema where I was absoulely rivetted to my seat from start to finish. Stunning stuff, and I still have my 'choose life' poster (on it's way in the container!).

Lock Stock was the second.

2 quality films that set standards still being followed today.

I just kept avoiding watching Trainspotting because I'd been told it was sad, saw it on sale at the Warehouse the other day so bought it and braced myself.


Lock stock was fab too, Pulp fiction is my most fav film.

Some how I knew that, wonder what gave it away

I love trainspotting, great film, I've still not seen Lock stock, saw they had it in the warehouse the other day, and nearly bought it, may have to go back.
Another great film I like is 'Highlander', the movie and the music, great film.

Good suspence film to watch the first time, ' The Hitcher' with Rutger Haur or spelt something like that, not so good second time, you know what to expect.
