    Ah, I wish I'd watched this when it first came out. At the age I was then I'd have loved this film...I love it now! It's a great watch, great fun, very funny & has a soundtrack that deserves to adorne everybody's OST collection.

    My angsty teenage self loved this movie. It still holds up on a nostalgic level but it didn't quite live up to my memory of it. Also, I ended up seeing the extended cut this time, which I had never seen before. It didn't really add anything of value to the film and it had some off edits and alternate takes in it.

    The best coming of age film of the 90s? that would be a resounding YES!

    I caught this at 18 and for whatever reason it just resonated with me. How cool it would be to work in a record store... (although maybe a video store is just as cool ;))

    Critically, I don't think it got many plaudits, but in the almost 20 years (ouch) that have passed, this has grown in status and rightly so.

    The soundtrack for one…

    Charming and funny. I have a feeling this will become something of a rewatchable favourite the more I see it.

    Almost adorable in its naive, mid-1990s record store idealism.

    Also, Rory Cochrane really was a star in 94/95, wasn't he?

    Sure. Empire Records is flawed, in so many ways. Still. If you can't see past them and enjoy all the things it does right... well. Let's just say; Damn you! Save the Empire!

    Let's begin by taking a look at the things that we could have lived without; sad attempts at including deeper issues (like drug addiction and attempted suicides), and the lower quality parts of this roller-coaster (corny, annoying hipsters-types, crossover 80s/90s-teen stuff).

    But it…

    After having this hidden away in my movie cupboard for months after having borrowed it from a friend I decided to give it a watch. Absolute gold.

    I couldn't even pick out a single stand alone reason of why I loved it so much but it gave me the same chills as when I first watched the breakfast club. It's a cheesy 90's teen flick with a difference, the characters are more than one dimensional and actually likable. Far above…

    Empire Records has become not only a 90s cult film but has become a snap shot of a time and place. It's fun, it's on the light side, but if you recall the time it's a nice place to visit...

    Nice movie. Fun, in a not engaging way.
    Doesn't manage to get me all nostalgic for records store, honestly.
