Want to see an Empire Records mini-reunion?

2 years agoby:

No movie made you want to work in a record store more than EMPIRE RECORDS, or maybe HIGH FIDELITY. For those still celebrating Rex Manning Day, this photo Ethan Embry posted on his twitter page is going to give you a sugar high.

Here's what the actor shared:

Warren (Brendan Sexton III), Eddie (James 'Kimo' Wills), Berko (Coyote Shivers), A.J. (Johnny Whitworth) and Marc (Ethan Embry)

A few characters are missing: Debra, Lucas, Corey, Joe, Jane, Rex but for the most part the cast has held up pretty well over the last 18 years. Yes, 18 years. That soundtrack was one of the most listened to in my car. It had everything from Sponge to The Cranberries to Gin Blossoms.

Embry will never loose his boyish charm.

SUGAR HIGH BABY!

This movie is INGRAINED in my 90's brain! I would love to see a reunion movie, only if it's done with the same stoner, care free vibe and kick ass music, of the original...

Interesting

I must admit I was only introduced to Empire records through a friend while I was at school. They were all into Green day, Blink 182 etc etc. I dont remember it being a fantastic movie at the time it wasnt bad by any means but at the same time I wouldn't rave about it and recommend it to other friends. Im pretty sure one of my friends just use to watch it for the sole purpose of his major crush on Liv Tyler. Im pretty sure people say they love this movie based on nostalgic reasons rather than

I think as a movie it was just good light hearted fun.

What's so good about Empire Records...

Baronweazle asked in a previous comment “what's so good about Empire Records?”. Remembering it as “as a plotless piece of shit, that wasn't much liked by anyone when it was originally released”

It’s a good question.

My opinion, for what it's worth, is that Empire Records offers an idealized portrait of what many of us wish our teenage years were like. No parents, teachers or school bullies are around. Our part-time job is at a place that’s more of a clubhouse than an actual store, and

My opinion, for what it's worth, is that Empire Records offers an idealized portrait of what many of us wish our teenage years were like. No parents, teachers or school bullies are around. Our part-time job is at a place that’s more of a clubhouse than an actual store, and no actual work is required. It’s a place filled with odd and wonderful employees that are loyal and supportive friends; nobody is ever fired, and the boss vents his anger by retreating to his office to play the drums. Cool music is always blaring on the speakers, hash brownies are in the break room, the female employees are all beautiful and witty, the male employees are either handsome and artistic or dark and brooding, and there’s a goofy dimwit on hand for comic relief. Plus, when the work day is through (a “work” day that lasts until midnight), a street party starts, complete with booze and a band playing on the store’s roof U2 style. Who wouldn’t want teenage years like this?

In short, to answer the question “what's so good about Empire Records?”; nothing is good about it as a movie, but as a memory it’s fantastic!

One of my all-time favorite movies. I've probably quoted it a million times. "Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear!"

Good for them, but can anyone explain me what's so good about Empire Records?

I remember it as a plotless piece of shit, that wasn't much liked by anyone when it was originally released. yet in recent years it seems to have become a cult classic and I keep encountering people who love that film. So I would seriously like to hear what is so great about that film.

"Till I hear it from you" (I may remember the title wrong) by Gin Blossoms is AWESOME!
