Miika's Movie Diary - 2014 (125 movies items)

"1.3, PC Viihdyttävä toimintaleffa one-linereilla ja satunnaisella höperyydellä ja toimivalla satiirilla kulutusyhteiskunnasta, ja hyvin on Carpenter onnistunut nämä tasapainottamaan. Tarinasta löytyy paljon yhtäläisyyksiä kaiken maailman Illuminati- ja reptiliaani-juttuihin, ja mietinkin että oliskohan tässä niiden alkuperä."

My year of watches 2014 (29 movies items)

"by John Carpenter Päätettiin kattoa tämä, kun tätä oli hyödynnetty siinä Zizekin dokkarissa. Huikean hauska pätkä tärkeällä mutta jo itsestäänselväksi käyneellä sanomalla. Tarjoaa absurdia ja väkivaltaan nojaavaa huumoria yhteiskuntakritiikiksi pukeutuneena. Päähenkilö, jonka näyttelijä on alun perin painija, on ilmeetön (paitsi nauraessaan jostain käsittämättömästä syystä - ja suuttuessaan) köntys, joka hakkaa ja tulittaa viholliset ja vääräuskoiset turhia"

"1st viewing, PV/TV 2 February 2014 Directed by: John Carpenter Hitaasti käyntiin lähtevä, mutta loppujen lopuksi melko viihdyttävä elokuva, jossa juonena toimii hiukan kulahtanut satiirinen kuvaus kultusyhteiskunnan uhista. Pääosanesittäjänä toimi suhteellisen karismaton perusduunari, joka huvitti eniten laukoessaan täysin irrallisia ja kekseliäitä loukkauksia ohikulkijoille saatuaan päähänsä maailmaa avartavat aurinkolasit. Toimintakohtaukset viihdyttivät kokonaisuudessa eh"

Rousing, thought-provoking sci-fi actioner

“"I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."

Although director John Carpenter masterminded a number of cinematic gems during the 1980s, They Live is arguably his coolest and most enjoyable effort from the decade. Written by Carpenter himself, it's a delightful sci-fi action romp, bolstered by an astute screenplay which mixes social commentary, exciting action and terrific one-liners, approaching RoboCop levels of greatness. And despite being made in 1988, They Live has aged remarkably well, remaining every bit as sharp and entertaining as it has always been. They Live has to be one of the most underrated and overlooked pictures on Carpenter's filmography, too, which is a shame because it's absolutely worthy of a large audience.

Film Journal 2013 (98 movies items)

" 'They Live' was so cool! Roddy Piper does this amazing job of making us believe he's actually seeing aliens through these sunglasses. He's so non-chalant and natural the whole time. Yeah, the aliens are kind of goofy mask people with bad makeup, but he is so adamant about them being real, you just go along with it. Sure, I'll bite. The way it ended was semi-surprising as well. I'll definitely see this again in the future."

LICENSED NES GAMES THAT DON'T EXIST (25 movies items)

" A thought-provoking treatise on consumer culture that just happens to feature Rowdy Roddy Piper killing aliens, They Live could have a been a NES game that made you think as well as tested your reflexes. Something Contra-like, perhaps, with the backgrounds and enemy sprites changing to reveal their true forms once Nada picks up some sunglasses. There's a sub-boss fight against a digitised Keith David that lasts roughly forty-seven minutes, and if you could cram a voice sample of Piper bemoanin"

Cheesy But Fun

“"They Live" is cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, Brie Cheese, topped by a great terrible performance by pro wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as the unnamed shotgun-toting protagonist. "I'm here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum." Yes you are, Rowdy, and never has such a line, so daringly uttered, struck such fear into the hearts into cadaver-faced extra-terrestrials as this.

Rowdy plays a wandering laborer, who finds himself living in a little shanty-town in LA. When police storm the place, Roddy finds a box of sunglasses. One look through a pair of these sunglasses, and Roddy can see that everything's a lie... aliens have taken over the world right under our noses and are systematically brainwashing us with subliminal messages such as 'Obey,' Watch TV,' and ” read more
