    ‘T2 Trainspotting’ (review) - at FORCES OF GEEK


    “Choose life.

    Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere cares.
    Choose looking up old flames, wishing you’d done it all differently.
    And choose watching history repeat itself.
    Choose your future.”

    Danny Boyle returns 20 years later to Edinburgh, Scotland for a sequel to the highly successful Trainspotting film about addiction and friendship.

    The film reunites Renton (Ewen McGregor) with Simon aka Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), the betrayed Begbie (Robert Carlyle) and the smack-obsessed Spud (Ewen Bremner) to great effect, portraying the void felt by the absence and passage of time.

    ‘Patriot’s Day’ (movie review) at FORCES OF GEEK

    April 15, 2013 is a day that will live in infamy for Bostonians and runners the world over.

    On this day, three people lost their lives and 264 others were injured at the finish line of the world’s oldest marathon.

    Days later, an MIT police officer by the name of Sean A. Collier was shot and killed in the line of duty as the bombers tried to steal his gun. Nearly a year later, Dennis Simmonds, a Boston Police Department officer died of complications from an ensuing firefight with the terrorists.

    These cowardly acts continue to have an affect on the Boston community, and on the other side of it, the chant of “Boston Strong” made it to the lexicon as a symbol of resilience, strength, pride and inspiration in the face of adversity.

    Director Peter Berg’s Patriot’s Day captures the city’s reaction to the bombing that spurred an unprecedented ‘shelter-in-place’ declaration as the murderers made more sinister plans and plotted their way to New York City for more destruction.
