Choose Life

The twentieth anniversary of the film of Trainspotting. Which I always liked for the fact that the chase out of John Menzies at the start goes the right way. Granted, that security guard (screenwriter John Hodge) chases Renton (Ewan McGregor) about half a mile, but half a mile in the same direction.

That John Menzies on Princes Street, long gone, is where I bought my first miniatures, back in the mad days of the Fighting Fantasy boom a decade earlier.

Trainspotting works as an example of making something dangerous seem like an adventure without glossing over the danger.
