Pump Up the Volume 1990

From Amazon: In the suburban hinterlands of Arizona, pirate-radio DJ Hard Harry wages a one-man war against boredom from his bedroom transmitter by night. In between great Lenny Bruce-style stream-of-consciousness rants, Harry attacks the airwaves with the likes of the Descendents, Bad Brains, and Concrete Blonde, as well as occasionally kickin' it old school with some early hip-hop. By day, though, Hard Harry is Mark Hunter, a painfully shy new kid who's anonymous to the point of being invisible at Hubert Humphrey High School. Completely misunderstood by his '60s-era parents, Mark is desperate to keep his radio alter ego separate from his day-to-day...

On top of that, it was...

It is also the one that hit me the hardest emotionally in that after seeing all these movies about the nerds and jocks fighting each other on school grounds, this one had characters that I could actually relate to. We were...

Pump Up the Volume Movie Review by Ryan Midnight (4/21/2007)

By day new-in-town Mark is a reclusive high school student with no friends and even less social skills. But by night, hidden behind a microphone on his pirate radio station he runs out of his bedroom, Mark becomes Hard Harry, a voice for the town's angst-filled youth. His take-no-prisoners attitude stirs up his fellow...

Pump Up the Volume Movie Review by Zara (1/30/2007)

"They think you're moody, make 'em think you're crazy. Make 'em think you might snap. They say you got attitude, you show 'em some real attitude."

The advice given by the normally bashful high school student Mark when he's on the radio as Hard Harry. Words to live by if you ask me.

It's usually the people who have had so...
