I really don’t know why I haven’t seen this film earlier because it’s one of those films that everyone has seen. it’s so popular and even though it’s now old you still hear it everywhere. It’s definitely a film every film student should watch so I have to kick myself for avoiding it for so long.
I loved Ewen McGregor in this he looked so different. I haven’t seen him in a role like this before but I really liked him like this. It was funny seeing him with a shaved head. He was definitely entertaining. I have to say there wasn’t as many trains as I though there would be but that’s okay because it was highly entertaining and gave me a few laughs. I absolutely love Spud, partly because my nickname is Spud but he just made me laugh. Apart from when he splattered S**t everywhere because at that point in the film I was eating my tea. It’s safe to say I was put off my food.
