You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
The employees of an independent music store learn about each other as they try anything to stop the store being absorbed by a large chain.
OH MAN! What a piece of shit!!!
This is the first movie in my Nostalgia Overload list where I came out on the other side of the re-watch absolutely hating a movie I once loved. I haven't seen Empire Records in about 15 years but I honestly used to love it. How embarrassing.
This movie is a very corporate look at what they consider "indie" films, with an ironic twist..you know..considering the entire plot of the movie is an independently run record store trying to avoid being bought out by a national corporation.
I hate everyone in this movie; all of the annoying, over-the-top, insincere caricatures of "gen Xers," MARK: THE MOST AGGRAVATINGLY IRRITATING OF THEM ALL, Robin Tunney as…
Just finished watching my brand new VHS copy of one of my favorite movies. You have to have the VHS version, unless you were fortunate enough to snatch up one of the OOP original version DVDs -- before the director or the producer decided to recut the film and ruin it.
This movie makes me happy. What can I say? I quote it all the time, mostly to myself. Renee Z and Liv T were never sexier - esp when Renee sings "Sugar High" -- and my decade+ long crush on Robin Tunney started here. Anthony Lapaglia seemed like the coolest guy ever. And I fell in love with Dire Straits' "Romeo & Juliet".
The music brings me back to my…
"This music is the glue of the world, Mark. It's what holds it all together. Without this, life would be meaningless."
Whoa, that was a blast from the past.
Been many years since I last watched this prime slice of 90s hipster nonsense. And I still have THE biggest crush on Liv Tyler (watching it again reminds me of something that occurred to me in the interim, when an American girl who looked very much like Liv called me 'super handsome' - you don't forget moments like that in your life I can tell you) wearing the sexiest outfit on film ever. And I still hate Lucas and, to a certain extent, Mark.
Watching it back, the stereotypes haven't aged…
i would kill for nineties liv tyler
Why don't part time jobs like these exist in real life?
I used to work in a record store throughout my university stint. I always got the feeling that our store and staff were very much cut in the vein of Empire Records.
I guess now I've come to accept that we were far more like the corporate, bottom-line Music Town that sought to replace the quirky independent store.
I really enjoyed this move, it's 90's humour and the 'stick-it-too-the-man' attitude. Whilst it's a little dated at times, it's oddball enough to be very enjoyable.
my kinda things, not yours
"This music is the glue of the world."
I love music. When I was younger, I always wished I could work at a record store (okay, I'm not that old, but a CD store). I think if I was born maybe 10 years earlier, I really would have. I have a Master's degree in Wildlife Ecology and still about once a year, I honestly consider filling out an application to work at Bull Moose at night or on the weekends. Just thinking about it now, makes me wish I could... music AND movies? Talk about an ideal combination for me.
Despite this nonsensical dream, I somehow never saw Empire Records until I was in college. A friend of a friend…
A flawed, yet somehow oddly charming slice of the mid-1990s. Maybe it's Liv Tyler that saves it. Maybe it's the music. Also, the dog pictured in the poster is nowhere to be seen in the film.
I remember the Record Stores that later became the CD Stores (but people still kept calling them "Record stores")
They were an integral part of my life, I waited faithfully the new releases every Friday and I usually left the store with several 45's and when eventually I got a job and more money to spend, with several Albums.
It was fun, music was truly part of someone's life, nowadays if you want a song badly, you sit at your computer and look for it all over the world without moving and chances are, unless is a rare title, you will find it (legally or not). The big "but" for me is that there is mostly no effort, and we…
Lojas de disco, que saudades delas. Esse filme é pura nostalgia ao lembrar da importância delas na vida dos jovens e dos fãs de música. Chega da uma tristeza pensar que elas estão praticamente extintas.
Um filme bem divertido, bem sessão da tarde.
Alright still music related but kinda different. A 90s teenage film! Oh well if today's kids watch this film they will say, "outfit goals!".
2016 is just another 1990s. With more tech.
Anyway, this is super fun film! Super cliché and easy to guess but not boring at all. This film hit me right in the head because damn, work in record store and be an idealist is one of my dream when I was a kid, seriously.
Liv Tyler is cute in here, that's it. Also Johnny Whitworth is hot. That's it.
Muy random, pero no en el buen sentido.
-Se agradece poder ver a Liv Tyler en su época sexy
-Se agradece que de cierta forma hayan hecho un tributo a la música.

Love when this happens. There's at least a couple more I'm not remembering. Suggestions, like characters on the USA Network,…
