Review: ‘T2 Trainspotting,’ starring Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller

It sounds clichéd and trite, but T2 Trainspotting is a sequel that shows an unforced, natural progression of the characters from its predecessor. All good sequels should do that, but few actually achieve it with the grace, ease, wit, and poignancy that director Danny Boyle does here in this follow-up to his beloved 1996 adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s countercultural bestselling novel.

Gina Carano in Haywire

Review: ‘Haywire’ starring Gina Carano

Former mixed martial arts star Gina Carano is Mallory Kane, a freelance hired gun who works for governments to deal with tough situations, like hostage situations where normal covert tactics are not possible. As we first see her, waiting for someone at a small diner in the middle of nowhere, Mallory ends up getting the crap beaten out of her as an ex-coworker shows up to drag her back to her boss.
