One of my favorite movies, Pump Up the Volume is a film that has a great message and a cool cast. Christian Slater is perfect as Harry/Mark, I think this is his best role, his second best being JD in Heathers. Samantha Mathis is also great in her role has Nora. It's a movie that has a message about censorship, teen suicide, pressures in society, freedom of expression and it also has a great soundtrack with lots of music Hard Harry plays on his pirate radio station. It's a movie that, even with it's slightly serious tone, makes you feel free and gives you a lift. I really think everyone should see this movie, it's one of my top 5. It also has tons of great quotes, especially things Harry says during his radio broadcasts.

Christian Slater is Mark Hunter, a nerdy Eastern transplant to an Arizona school. Completely overlooked by his easy-going parents and everybody else, Hunter runs a pirate radio station under the name "Hard Harry". Every night, the hordes of students who think nothing of Hunter, listen for every syllable of Harry's voice. Hunter laces his subversive radio with mixtures of Lenny Bruce and the likes of "Concrete Blond", and everybody loves it. Everybody that is but the stern, authoritarian and uptight nerds who live for nothing but make life miserable for everybody younger than they are. Hunter is a man with ideas, but he can only express them through Harry - he alters his voice for radio, and uses an anonymous mail box to collect fan mail - keeping his double life a secret. Unfortunately, Nora (Samantha Mathis), an introverted intellectual teen who works the library at Hunter's school, pieces together the clues of Hunter's & Harry's shared ID.
Until then, "Pump" is sheer fun, an equal opportunity offender that doesn't strain your sense of morality. The adults are easy targets (even Hunter's parents are out to lunch - they never realize that their son's got enough electronic equipment to be the "Hard Harry" that everybody is talking about; the rest of the adults fail to consider Harry's message as a wake-up call). But the teens are also pretty wasted - for all of their energy, they never convert their power into a cause (the script wakes up near the end, and crafts a genuine cause involving manipulation of student scores - a revelation hit on by a "friendly" teacher played by Ellen Greene of "Little Shop of Horrors" fame).

Powerful film, Christian Slater with an incredible performance as Mark Hunter a shy kid who moves to Arizona in a new school where he notices things are very wrong. At night he turns into Hard Harry on pirate radio with a system in his basement. He has the whole school glued to his radio show that comes on at 10:00pm every night. No one knows it's him. He begins to uncover shady doings with the teachers and releases it on the air along with some kickin tunes by great bands really good soundtrack. His radio skits are hilarious. A girl (Samantha Mathis) figures out his identity and really gets into him and helps him reveal the crooked teachers. An amazing movie about censorship and the courage to speak your voice against wrong authority. One of my favorite films in my top ten, essential to collection.

this movie is about Christian Slater who plays Hard Harry the pirate radio man of his pirated show, is magnificent and full of style. this is a movie that deals with rebellion and teen angst..kids who want to live their lives free of all the things they are imprisoned to do and they tune into Slater's show everynight including Samantha Mathis which this is her starring debut in a movie. Cheryl Pollack also sparks some hottstuff. slamming music and great moments make this one a masterpiece and a movie not to be forgotten, one of the best movies of 1990. note: Seth Green has a short but recognizable roll in here and so does Martin Landau's daughter Juliet Landau has a small role as well, both Green and Landau worked together again in the tv series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Green played Oz and Landau played Drusilla. make plans and rent this or buy this.

This was a really good film. Christian delivers as does his teenage costar, Samantha Mathis. This is a tale of teenage angst, but it is more than that alone. These kids have legitimate grips against the powers that be. This is a tale of having the courage to be honest, tell the whole story, stand up for what you believe. In addition, Christian's character must find the strength to trust, love, and meaningfully connect with other people on a face-to-face basis. Nice film.

what more can you say this movie is great. But I can tell you right now this movie was made in 85 or 86 I was still in college and I graduated in 86. A freind of mine had told me she went to see it and another friend screamed that she should have told her because she was in love with C. Slater. But I remember seeing it and telling everyone that it was like the best movie I had seen that year. But I can tell you this movie was made in the mid 80's.

Finally, somebody has the intelligence and the guts to come out and ask, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?!?" Nobody is required to fall into the rut and coast along in life, living up to the expectations and stereotypes and ideals of their age group.

Students at Hubert Humphrey High are screaming inside. Many of them don't know what to do with their lives, so they do the best they can pretending to be the perfect, destined-for-success angels that their prim-but-pushy parents expect them to be. The fact that the principal of the school values her school's SAT scores rather than the students' personal welfare doesn't help much.

Enter Happy Harry Hardon. Feeling lonely, depressed, and frustrated with life, he starts a pirate radio station and spills his guts out. Not only does he develop a following, he gives powerful advice that everyone should live by, and in the process exposes corruption in the school.

His words are powerful. Maybe you'll blow this one off and say it's unrealistic (hello people... what movie is), or maybe you'll feel liberated and completely change your outlook on life, like I did. "Doesn't this blend of blindness and blandness make you want to do something crazy?? Then DO SOMETHING CRAZY!!"
