Despite my young age at the turn of the century, I have a profound nostalgia for the 1990’s. I always refer to people as “90’s kids” and I enjoy wearing Doc Martens with pleated miniskirts. My brother even insists I sound like a terrible actor from the 90’s when I try to explain things. What better way to relive these years than by watching cheesy teen movies from the decade? I can’t help but love the unrealistically chaotic scenarios of Empire Records. And as it turns out, trends from the decade that I was alive for have resurfaced. Maybe dressing exactly like the characters in this film won’t feel quite modern enough, but Corey’s skirt with boots, anyone? Gina’s short shorts with clogs? Yeah, I’m sold.
