A cool flick about a lot more than record collecting
7 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Why do people always tell you what they wish a film had been or what they would have done or what there should have been more of or less of? "There should have been more audiophiles". "There should have been less of the filmmaker". "It would have been better if my uncle was in it". etc etc blah blah blah. Me and my friends love this movie and we rent it whenever we can find it. I think the reason some people don't get it is because they want it to be ONLY about record collecting and while it is about that, it's about a lot more too. I'm not a record collector myself, although some of my friends are and I wouldn't have wanted it to be some celebration of record collecting. If you want a movie about audiophiles, make it yourself. Skimming through the reviews on IMDb, it seems like the most vocal reviewers are usually the ones who have the most complaints. And sometimes those complaints are entertaining but it shouldn't give you the wrong impression of this very unique and very cool flick. Oh and by the way, one of my friends told me that reviewer "Ivan Haffenden" is actually in the movie and so his comments should be ignored more than most.
