I was just looking through Danny Boyle’s IMDB and I realized that he’s pretty highly overrated. Trainspotting was great, no doubt. The Beach and 28 Days Later were okay. Sunshine started out okay and just got ridiculous. That’s about it.
127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, contrary to popular belief, were awful. He did some great direction, and the stories are generally pretty good, but the products as a whole were just bad in the end. I’m not going to bother seeing Trance until someone who’s opinion I can trust actually tells me it’s worth watching.
