Empire RecordsA nostalgic trip back to the mid-’90s, “Empire Records” chronicles a rag-tag group of dreamy-eyed (and dreamy) record store employees as they fight the threat of a corporate take-over—and find love, sex and happiness (not necessarily in that over) in the process. Included in the talented ensemble cast are a pre–“Jerry Maguire” Renée Zelwegger, a young Liv Tyler and the ever-sassy Debi Mazar.Raising ArizonaBefore they became household names thanks to memorable movies like “Fargo,” “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and “True Grit,” the Coen Brothers were on film buffs’ radars thanks to their cult 1987 classic “Raising Arizona.” Starring an endearingly dim Nicolas Cage as an ex-con and Holly Hunter as his put-upon ex-cop wife, the comedy follows the couple’s madcap misadventures after they kidnap one of a wealthy family’s quintuplets. As Cage’s recently escaped prison buddies, John Goodman and William Forsythe portray characters that only the Coen Brothers could conjure up.
