High Fidelity. I've seen it twice now. I liked the movie a lot, it has some really snappy dialogue (script co-written by star John Cusack, who is very able in this movie) and a breakthrough performance by Jack Black. It serves to illuminate the overgrown adolescent male experience, but at the same time there are just some great scenes in the record shop. Like the one where Rob says "I will now sell 4 copies of the Beta Band EP", puts the music on for his browsing customers and the camera pans around the store as we watch the customers slowly digging "Dry The Rain". Read some funny dialogue snippets here.

But the soundtrack - I love the soundtrack. Was just listening to it now and thought I'd squirt a quick blog entry up...
