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, exc... read more

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.read more

" Date: 1/16/2022 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: Today is John Carpenter's birthday, so I decided to watch They Live in 4K UHD in honor of his birthday. They Live is still a great classic because it is timeless. They Live is jam-packed with action, kick-ass characters, and memorable dialogue. It's one of those films that I could watch all day and never get tired of. The fight scene in the film between Roddy Piper and Keith David is one of the best fight scenes ever. It'd be impossible not to br"

"7.12. Blu-ray Pahat ulkoavaruuden republikaanit ovat valloittaneet Maan ja vain päähän potkitut duunarit voivat nämä paljastaa ja pelastaa meidät. Satiiri on totta vie toimivaa, kun se jaksaa innostaa, vaikka katsoja ei nyt ihan samaan poliittiseen leiriin kuuluisikaan. Tuo puoli ei tosin ihan kiinnostavin aspekti elokuvassa ole. Aivopesu isona kuvana ja subliminaalinen vaikuttaminen sen sijaan ovat kovin kiinnostavia teemoja ja aika pelottavia ajatuksiahan tuo herättää. Ja onpahan tä"

"29.7. Roddy Piper ihmettelee asumuksenaan toimivan hökkelikylän viereisessä kirkossa tapahtuvaa aurinkolasien bootleg-bisnestä, mikä johtaa lopulta totuuden tajuamiseen. Maapallon väestöön soluttautuneet alienit pitäisi siis saada hengiltä, mutta päähenkilön purkkavarastot ovat valitettavasti päässeet loppumaan eikä miehellä ole tarjota kuin kick assia. Keith David ottaa mieluummin 10 minuuttia turpaansa kujalla kuin laittaa aurinkolasit päähänsä. Sen jälkeen juotava huurt"
