    1. Ewan McGregor is so handsome.

      I don’t know about greatest Scottish film though. Then again, I haven’t seen that many Scottish films.

    2. A little trivia behind this movie, The guy who played Tommy (Kevin McKidd) wasn’t in any of the posters or ads for the movie, because they did all of the publicity work after the movie was done. McKidd is now one Grey’s Anatomy and he was the hero in ‘Dog Soldiers’ which was after ‘Transpotting’.

    3. Weird ass movie, but I liked it…mostly. One of these days I’ll have to examine my fascination w/ drugs. alcohol, death, mayhem and all the dark things…or not.

    5. @clicksip: He was also Lucius Vorenus in the HBO series Rome, my all time favorite television show. Kevin McKidd is also in talks to play Thor, which would tie in to the Iron Man movies.

    6. True story. Funny story.

      My roommate had just finished reading the book, and wanted to watch the film. She bought a pizza from one of those experimental pizza places down the street, and it was about 3 cloves garlic plus pineapple per slice. So we eat it, and I decide to head to Fred Meyers to pick up some handcuffs.

      Another roommate bought some for $5, and said they were pretty durable. Well, I always enjoy using handcuffs, and I go to the toy section of Fred Meyers to pick ’em up. I also try to slide by a silent but deadly while I’m there.

      A moment passes, and I swear I smell steak. Like a really well cooked delicious steak. It takes me a moment to realize that it’s my own gas, and that all that garlic made it smell delicious. Very disturbing.

      Not one of my best stories, but this film always reminds me of it. Also, goes without saying, the book was better.

    7. Greatest by default. Name four others that could even compete. Heck, name four others, period.

      Local Hero
      Restless Natives
      Wicker Man

      Last King of Scotland

      And I liked Brigadoon. But not Braveheart.

      Whoa! You’re so amazing. Naked Lunch is magnificent. And so is Videodrome.

      @mcsjames:

      Wicker Man is absolutely dope also.

      I want to like Naked Lunch.
      However after watching it twice I have no fucking clue what the point is.

      Are you serious? I’d recommend the book, though you need an open mind for that one as well. I really didn’t think you were that kind of a person, but do you really need the plot spoon fed to you, like in most so called films, these days.
      You’re supposed to think for yourself, interpret, assume, imagine. It’s really not that hard.
