There was a lass in my school who was the spit of Scorpio. A mate and I used to go up to her and quote lines from the movie but she obviously didn't have a clue what we were on about. We thought this was hilarious of course.

She left not long after that. I really hope it wasn't our fault.

Do check it out, Pres. (I've used it in a good few BCB cups and it's gone down a storm :? )



Pretty chill track. I don't remember the soundtrack to the movie at all it's been so long since I watched it.

It was one of my dad's favorite movies, and while he often had excellent taste (Cool Hand Luke, Papillon, The Hustler) I never liked this one and I really don't think there's much ambiguity to be found. In short, I agree with Dave.

Thanks to all for sharing your thoughts.

Hadn't read a copy of Empire in years, bought a copy for reading on holiday. Fucking awful, crap from start to finish, awful writing and packed with adverts and large photos.

I bought it for years back in the 90s. It's always been a bit like the Q of movie magazines mind but it helped point me in various directions so I'm grateful for that. Their top 100 polls have always been a bit silly.

I think like a lot of publications it's struggled to adapt to a new world. From picking it up in newsagents over the last few years it looks to have dumbed down a bit

I was always too much of a film snob to read Empire beyond the occasional issue. It did used to have some good writers like Kim Newman back in the day. Haven't read a copy for years though.

i bought it from issue 1. It grew out of the film review section in Q. I thought it got the balance between box office and art house cinema pretty well. Eventually it was taken over by fanboys though rather than cinema fans and got shite.

That’s my take -a pretty steep decline in the last decade as it became effectively Superhero/Franchise Monthly. Hard to say how much chicken & egg there is though given that seems to be the entire content of mainstream cinema these days outside award season.
