They Live


This movie is so B-list it's great! And you can't beat the fight scene!

A must see alien-invasion cult classic, directed and scored by John Carpenter, starring former wrestler "rowdy" Roddy Piper, among the very best of all the sci-fi films I've seen. And of course the most epic fight scene ever.

But I have to say certain aspects about the first 1/3 of the film did sort of feel a bit slow, but patience is more than rewarded with the entertainment provided by the rest of the movie.

Memorable quotes:

"You? You look like your face fell in the cheese dip back in 1957."
"I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...... and I'm all out of bubblegum."

"The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are non-existent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices."
"They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery.
"We could be pets, we could be food, but all we really are is livestock."

"The feeling is definitely there. It's a new morning in America... fresh, vital. The old cynicism is gone. We have faith in our leaders. We're optimistic as to what becomes of it all. It really boils down to our ability to accept. We don't need pessimism. There are no limits. "

Drifter: "What's wrong with having it good for a change? Now they're gonna let us have it good if we just help 'em. They're gonna leave us alone, let us make some money. You can have a little taste of that good life too. Now, I know you want it. Hell, everybody does."
Frank: "You'd do it to your own kind."
Drifter: "What's the threat? We all sell out every day, might as well be on the winning team."
