Before iTunes revolutionized how we listen to music, those of us raised in the ’90s used to leave our houses to buy music! Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but I remember being a kid and begging my sister to drive me to the Virgin Megastore to buy the latest Morrissey CD. Back then, it seemed uber cool to work in record store and to have access to all this music all the time. I dreamed of the day I could cut my hair into a mohawk and have my co-workers embrace me and my new hair. Instead I was blessed with an after school job at McDonalds. While fetching ketchup packets for hungry patrons, I’d daydream about working in a hip record shop like this weeks instant movie pick, Empire Records (1995). Revel along with me and my pseudo job at a the record store because:
- The soundtrack in oh-so-’90s: The Cranberries, Edwyn Collins, Gin Blossoms…
- You’ll get a chance to see a very young Renee Zellweger acting without making the squinty face.
- You’ll be reminded of a more naive time, when you thought your love for a popstar was like real love.
- Anything with Debi Mazar is worth watching, so much sass!
- Although considered a “flop” and now a cult classic, this is a can’t miss teen movie of the ’90s!
So put down your Walkman and gather your friends, the oatmeal cookies & milk and take a trip back to the ’90s via Empire Records!
