Could there be a more perfect 90s movie than Empire Records? I mean just look at that photo.. it says it all. 1995 to the max.
Rex Manning Day was last week, so it seemed pertinent to review this particular movie. I give it an A+ in the following areas:
- Music. The soundtrack is totally on point, as well as every single song played throughout the film. It goes way beyond that sweet Gin Blossoms song.
- Wardrobe. Totally nailed it. I still want Corey's cropped sweater, plaid mini and boots.
- Dialogue. "What's with today, today?"
My one and only complaint is that sometimes the characters break the fourth wall. Just not a huge fan of that. I would also say "not enough scenes with Berko" is another complaint, but he remains best as more of an enigma. At least there's plenty of Lucas, my fave.
Why you should watch this movie: It rules
Why you shouldn't watch this movie: Might cause intense feelings of nostalgia
