    I guess if you were addicted to something harmless it might be ok, but dosent any addiction take away from other things?

    I am probably addicted to Coca Cola and Pepsi, I drink it very often and frankly I don't care if I'm addicted, I enjoy the taste of it. When I come home and I can get a glass of coke, to me it signals when I can start to unwind.

    Oh I know it's unhealthy, but I don't do drugs, or smoke, I drink alcohol rarely and I eat very healthily, I think I'll be alright.

    Dude, you have to see it! It has it all, a great soundtrack, vivid and iconic scenes, memorable quotes, compelling storyline, highly rewatchable, a great cast of unique personalities, some nudity, some incredibly disturbing scene, lots of bad language and the greatest use of an Underworld song set to anything. Watch it!

    I think so, I was familiar with the group but I didn't really listen to them.

    I've been wanting to see the movie for a while, since A) I've heard good things about it, B) it's directed by Danny Boyle and I loved 28 Days Later, and C) it's dark and depressing and that's my thing, mate.

    Danny Boyle's a good 'un, check out The Beach and Sunshine when you get the chance. The film isn't as depressing as Requiem For a Dream, though that film is not a fun watch. Trainspotting is infinitely superior.

    If I remember correctly, my mom has seen Requiem for a Dream. Maybe she was just mentioning it in a conversation of ours, but I want to see that one, too. Mental illness is angsty and edgy, yo.

    I know my mom has seen The Silence of the Lambs, and I just got recommended to see that. Oh, what to do.

    I can usually find a book more easily than a movie, so maybe I'll just read the books for The Silence of the Lambs and Trainspotting.

    Haha reading Trainspotting, that's a fucking laugh. It's impenetrable for anyone not speaking Scots

    "I dinnae Tam, ah jist dinnae. Life's boring and futile. We start oaf wi high hopes, then we bottle it. We realize that we're aw gaunnae die, withoot really findin oot the big answers. We develop aw they long-winded ideas which jist interpret the reality ay oor lives in different weys, withoot really extending oor body ay worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short, disappointing life; and then we die. We fill oor lives up wi shite, shite like joabs n relationships, tae delude ourselves intae thinkin that it isnae aw totally pointless. Smack's an honest drug, because it strips away these delusions. It's the only really honest drug. It disnae alter yir consciousness. It jist gies ye a hit and a sense ay well-being. After that, ye see the misery ay the world as it is, and ye cannae anesthaetise yirsel against it."

    All of it is like that, some of even harder to read. Watch the film first.

    If you can make heads or tails of this then get the book, this is an extract from it;

    Choose Life (Extract from Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh) | Gonzo
    I can understand it all if I think about it for a minute, but... that kind of speech just doesn't fit the language he uses, to me at least. It's like an ordinarily well-phrased novel being narrated by a homeless Scottish skin-head.

    Obviously Scots is just a dialect like Southern is here in the USA, but I've been given a stereotype to tack on it, I suppose. I can't help but think the same thing happens when it comes to Southern as heard/read by you guys across the pond.
