Editorial Reviews

The director of Pump Up the Volume cranks it up another notch with Empire Records Remix! Special Fan Edition, including 16 minutes of never-before-seen footage. A comedy about an eventful day in the lives of the young slackers, doers and dreamers who work at a bustling record store. Stars Renee Zellweger, Liv Tyler, Anthony La Paglia, Ethan Embry and Robin Tunney. Gin Blossoms, the Cranberries, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Cracker, Evan Dando, Better Than Ezra and more hot alternative rock underscores virtually every scene.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR DIE-HARD FANS!! May 13, 2006
If you are a fan of the ORIGINAL Empire Records, DON'T buy the Re-Mixed Fan version... it's a big dissappointment. There are added scenes in the movie, and some of the BEST lines are changed. Example: When Rex is leaving the store and says "Why don't you all just fade away." Yeah, he doesn't say that in this version. I was very dissappointed when I saw this, b/c die-hard Empire fans DON'T want the best lines changed, so this really isn't a "fan re-mix" b/c it changes stuff the fans LOVE!!! Definitely just buy the regular DVD or VHS version... it's much better as an original, not a re-mix!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun romp June 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This film got terrible reviews...plain and simple. Why? Because it wasn't aimed at film critics all. The film is an experiment in teen flicks along the lines of "The Breakfast Club" it chronicles the lives of a bunch of angsty, depressed, manic teens over the course of a single day, finding odd little ways to tell each of their stories. It definitely accomplishes this goal, using "Rex Manning Day" as the vehicle for delivering half a dozen life stories without telling a boring narrative. Granted, it's doesn't have the most original plot, or Oscar caliber acting, but it the film does what it sets out to do, and for this reason, earned its cult following. Watch this film and you will find yourself quoting lines and recalling scenes. If you're looking for a fun romp with a story that will neither bore you, nor tax your mental reserves, this is a great flick--lots of fun, quotable dialogue, and of course, great music. Both Cochrane and Embry give memorable performances as the night manager, turned well meaning felon turned philosopher and the happy go lucky stoner respectively. The story line is a tad incongruous and disjointed and some of the characters are stereotypical in their attempts to shatter the stereotypes, but if you go in to this movie with the expectations that it's just going to be a fun flick, you'll be satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empire Records Remix June 8, 2003
By Josh
Could Empire Records have been any better than it was before? Nope, it was perfect. But with this new Fan Remix edition given to us by Warner Bros., there is a lot more to enjoy. Sixteen minutes of additional footage, 4 deleted scenes, and 3 music videos to enjoy, in fact.
If you're here, you obviously know the story that is Empire Records. It's a great actual coming-of-age film that has the ability to touch on subject that is relatable to any person between the ages ... well, of any age. There are great performances (Liv Tyler, Renee Zellwegger, Robin Tunney, Ethan Embry, the whole cast!), the film's many subplots never run into each other, and the soundtrack has got to be near one of the best and biggest of any movie.
The additional 16 minutes added into the movie gives more character development to certain characters, new little scenes obviously edited out for they supplied only minimum yet effective humor, and some stuff that would have rallied the actual storyline. There are 2 of the 4 deleted scenes that makes the infamous Sexy Rexy an actual good guy, and also include an unseen performance of Mon Amour by Coyote Shivers, Renee Zellwegger, and Maxwell Caulfield (Rex) that was cut from the movie.
Warner Bros. truly released this for the fans of Empire Records, a la Fan remix. But if given the chance, any person will easily take a liking to the movie. If you're into stuff like this. That's what I think, but "Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear. Mm-hm."

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the bonus features. January 1, 2005
Empire Records, despite all the angst, always leaves everybody I've watched it with in a cheerful mood.

I loved the additions to the remix. I was pleased that so much extra footage was integrated in the film and felt that said footage helped explain a few things better.

A word on the sound--thus far I've only watched my DVD once, at somebody else's house, so I don't know how it will play with my system. But it seemed like the volume was really pumped up for all the songs--so if we had the volume at a decent level to hear the dialogue, I felt like my ears were getting blasted when the music came on. Still, that may be a pro rather than a con for people who really want to rock out.

There are lots of nice touches here--this is a great update for people who own/have viewed the previously-released version of the movie, and newcomers will be able to enjoy it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars forget other teen flicks, this is it May 23, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Ok, so you've seen 'can't hardly wait', you loved 'Clueless' and 'the breakfest club', ohh, and 'never been kissed' made you cry, well forget all that, this is the best teen movie around. All my friends and I were obsessed with it when it first came out, I mean who hasn't dreamed of working in a record store? I mean all of our parents don't buy us Jeeps. This movie rocks, it has heart and all of the characters arn't either perfect or dogs, they are teens, or actors showing how it was when they were teens. A great ensemble teenage film that you can't be cynical about, and if you are then you are just upset that this movie is just too cool for you. So the plot happens in a day, who cares that is the point! This movie rocks, and will change your expectations. I wish there had been more nineties teen movies like this, this is great and so is the music (esp. sugarhigh, a party fave.) Get it, turn it up and just enjoy.
