Format: Blu-ray
"Trainspotting"(1996) is directed by Danny Boyle (Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire). The film follows the lives of various friends who are all trapped in the world of drugs abuse. The film is hilariously conceived with the friends showing the degrees to which they are willing to go in order to support their addictions. Hallucinations abound with Mark (Ewan McGregor) diving into toilets for his stash, or seeing babies crawling on ceilings. Even though the film is generally very upbeat, and frenetic, there is always lurking around the corner the dark side of these individuals' lives.

This particular blu-ray is a bit disappointing, if only because it is barebones. There are zero special features, and the film has not been remastered. Even though the blu-ray image quality is sharper than the DVD there really isn't a big improvement over the DVD version in this case.

Format: DVD
Just read around 5 or 6 of the reviews below, as somebody else noted: this film IS SET IN EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND! Not Ireland and most definatley not England. Somebody else had written "...in its homeland of England....". This would completeley misrepresent the film. Also, Trainspotting does not mean Heroin, Trainspotting is the title as it represents the pointlessness of taking heroin just as writing down a load of train numbers.

Rant over. Quality film, buy it or rent it!

Format: DVD
For some reason, the 2-disc set released in the states on June 1 features the same artwork as the previous US release - yet all the animated menus still read "Definitive Edition" as in the U.K. release. Oh well... For those of us who've been waiting since 1997 for a comprehensive, worthy DVD of Trainspotting will finally get what they've been waiting for. All nine deleted scenes, commentary, a "making-of" dohicky, and interviews with the cast (as well as Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn) are included. Trainspotting fans rejoice at last! One of the best movies of the 90's is finally brought to home video justice.

****UPDATE AT BOTTOM****

Trainspotting

A 2009 Alliance Home Video release

Video: 1080p, 1.78:1 aspect ratio, 1h 34min
Audio: English 5.1 DTS HD-MA, 5.1 dolby digital, French 2.0 dolby surround

I just thought the movie was alright. It had some good ideas in it, some pretty funny parts, but it was just kinda all over the place. I think I need another viewing of it. Maybe then it will make more sense. McGregor was pretty good in it though. Good performances all around actually.

Video quality was pretty good. Detail was really really nice. I had a few problems with this release though. Even though detail was pretty solid, the video still looked a bit murky a lot of the time. I don't know if it was meant to be this way, but it seemed as if the video could've been a little better. Colours were nice, but should've been more vibrant. Outdoor daytime scenes looked fantastic for the most part, but indoor scenes could've had a bit more kick to them. There were those black specs popping up on the screen a lot of the time, but weren't too distracting. So it seems as if the picture quality was sorta hit-and-miss, but it was more of a hit than a miss. It still looks pretty good. I still think somewhere down they should re-release this on blu-ray with a completely cleaned up picture. I'll still give this release a 4 outta 5 though.

Audio quality was good. Comparing the dolby digital track to the DTS HD-MA track, the lossless track easily overtakes the dolby. The rear channels were used nicely, dialogue was nice and clear (and pretty understandable as well for the most part), and all audio levels were set nicely. Bass usage was spot-on as well. This was a very suitable audio track for this movie.

Format: Blu-ray
I bought this Blu-ray, a few weeks ago. On this Combo, it said it was the Director's Cut for the Blu-ray with 11 minutes of additional footage and while DVD is the original theatrical version at 94 mintues. But the information is sadly a misprint. I was surprised, it said, it was the Director's Cut but it is not true. Still, the original theatrical cut is still an excellent movie. The Blu-ray has all the bonus features from the Two-Disc DVD Set. No "New" Special Features sadly but maybe in a 20th Anniversary Edition in the possible future...

Director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Sunshine, 28 Days Later) and Actor Ewan McGregor (Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Haywire, Nightwatch "Remake") certainly become well known after this movie. Especially Boyle won an Oscar for "Slumdog Millionaire" for Best Director and McGregor always finds work as a actor, even if his choices have been so-so lately.

Blu-ray has an strong anamorphic 1080P 1.85:1 transfer, which the colors are strong and shows more detail in quality and print for the movie. DTS 5.1 HD Sound is terrific at times, especially when the music played in the movie and the dialogue is always clear. There is no used to adjust volume to the movie, if you watch it on your Widescreen TV with Home Theater Sound System. It is a good thing, the Blu-ray has subtitles, since the actors accents are hard to understand at times.

This Blu-ray is terrific, it is the Lionsgate Blu-ray from last year. Die-Hard fans of the movie should get this. The DVD is enhanced for Widescreen TV and it has an DTS Track as well and Dolby Digital 5.1 track. It is seperate from the two-disc set. Sadly, it is not a Director's Cut for some fans are hoping for. But i doubt Boyle would do a Director's Cut to his excellent film.
