    𝔼𝕄ℙ𝕀ℝ𝔼 β„π”Όβ„‚π•†β„π”»π•Š A seriously entertaining film for it's time, with a cool feel! A hot cast attempts to save a music store they all work for. An eclectic bunch of funky misfits who all try to pull together to "damn the man" & raise cash to keep the record store in business, ultimately to save their jobs. It's humorous, sexy, yet strange all in one! "A rad flick!" ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

    While it's light on plot and substance, the film's wonky direction, excellent soundtrack, and likeable and chemistry filled cast easily helps the film obtain a charming cult status.

    Empire records is the last of a dying breed, the heart and soul of the place is held together by a tight knit group of young people who work there. This film shows a day in the life of the group who all share a common bond with the love of music. Now the business is at risk of being taken over by a larger conglomerate, Music town. With a stricter business model the plan would turn the beautiful essence of the place on its head and become just another money greedy chain. With countless personal complications amongst the gang whilst trying like hell to raise enough money to keep the owner happy enough to keep the place independent it won't be easy. This is a last ditch effort for Empire Records to escape being swallowed whole by corporate greed. A absolute celebration of youthful optimism with a beautifully selected soundtrack that helps take you back. A true showcase of a few amazing up and coming actors and actresses of the nineties. This films delivers the pure essence of musical expression and most times can be the driving force of mental stability. It certainly fits the profile of your typical dramedy no doubt but the well written and realistic interactions help set this apart. Really goes to show how bad teen movies have gotten over the years going to show it's hard to touch the nineties in that category.

    It's often cringey, but it's quite wholesome and fun. It's worth watching till the end.

    I get the feeling that Empire Records aim was to be The Breakfast Club of the 90's. Well, if that was the intention, they failed. But hear me out...The movie isn't bad. It has some great dialogues (at least in half of the movie, the other half isn't that great), interesting performances and a great sense of humor. Oh, and it has a great soundtrack. A good movie overall.
