Long DescriptionThe film that effectively launched the star careers of Robert Carlyle, Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller is a hard, barbed picaresque, culled from the bestseller by Irvine Welsh and thrown down against the heroin hinterlands of Edinburgh. Directed with abandon by Danny Boyle, Trainspotting conspires to be at once a hip youth flick and a grim cautionary fable. McGregor, Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner play a slouching trio of Scottish junkies; Carlyle their narcotic-eschewing but hard-drinking and generally psychotic mate Begbie. In Boyle's hands, their lives unfold in a rush of euphoric highs, blow-out overdoses and agonising withdrawals (all cued to a vogueish pop soundtrack). Throughout it all, John Hodge's screenplay strikes a delicate balance between acknowledging the inherent pleasures of drug use and spotlighting its eventual consequences. In Trainspotting's world view, it all comes down to a question of choices--between the dangerous Day-Glo highs of the addict and the grey, grinding consumerism of the everyday Joe. "Choose life", quips the film's narrator (McGregor) in a monologue that was to become a mantra. "Choose a job, choose a starter home... But why would anyone want to do a thing like that?" Ultimately, Trainspotting's wised-up, dead-beat inhabitants reject mainstream society in favour of a headlong rush to destruction. It makes for an exhilarating, energised and frequently terrifying trip that blazes with more energy and passion than a thousand more ostensibly life-embracing movies. --Xan Brooks Special Features This new release includes a brand new 40 minute feature with interviews from director Danny Boyle, screenwriter John Hodge and stars Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Ewan Bremner and Kelly MacDonald

v1.1.3 - Support for meCard and vCard information

Added support for meCard and vCard formatted QRCodes. You can import some of this information directly into your contact list if you like or click on various parts of the information to get added functionality. We plan on improving this area more very soon.

vCards and meCards are very similar ways of presenting contact information in a compact formatted way. This information is often stored in a QRCode image that can be scanned by many 2D scanners including cameras found on cell phones.

You can visit our vCard creation page to get more information about vCards or to create your own vCard. meCards are a simplified version of the full vCard with fiewer fields and less information. Some people like to use them because they create less complex QRCodes.
