    I like Empire Records. The chicks were hotter and the soundtrack was better.

    Empire Records was fucking awful. They don't even bear comparison.

    Didn't like either one.

    Seems a little pointless to compare the two anyway.

    Very odd comparison choice. If you were to compare say Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire, then sure.

    The Breakfast Club. Though I can't see how one could compare the two. It's like the comparison between Star Wars and Halo.

    It's a bit like comparing Star Wars with Jane Austen but... I'd go with Breakfast Club.

    Breakfast Club will always be better than any movie that tries to be like it.

    This thread is dumb.

    But yes, the Breakfast Club is like infinity times better than Empire Records.

    Empire Records is seriously the worst released film I have ever seen. Breakfast Club is a 80s teen classic.

    Yeah, you got me. 10 films. Whole life. Among the other 8 films besides the obvious Breakfast Club and Empire Records, there sits such wonderful films as Transmorphers, Chipmunks, Baby's Day Out, Jason X, and Critters 3. All of which are infinitly more realistic and believable then Empire Records. My only hopes are that my 11th movie can be Beverly Hills Chuhuahua and, god willing, my 12th being a motion picture adaptation of Full House.

    The Breakfast Club is an amazing film and bears no comparison to Empire Records.

    Last semester, I wrote a 12 page paper on the Marxist undertones throughout The Breakfast Club for my Critical Analysis of Literature class. I got an 'A' on the paper. I was pleased. It was especially nice since my professor was a huge John Hughes fan and is very familiar with the film.

    Could you describe the ruckus, sir?
