They Live (Carpenter, 1988)

10 Reasons Why You Need to Watch They Live:

10. It's fuckin' hilarious.

9. Clever social/politcal satire.

8. Horrid acting.

7. Roddy Piper gets thrown out of a glass window apartment complex high above ground level only to walk away with a limp.

6. Roddy Piper walks into a bank with a shotgun and goes ape shit.

5. Pure 80's cheese.

4. It stars the awesome Rowdy Roddy Piper.

3. Special sunglasses reveal the true society people are living in which happens to be controlled by hideous creatures from another planet using capitalist propoganda to brainwash everyone. How cool is that premise?

2. Roddy Piper and Kieth David beat the shit out of each other in an alley in one of the greatest fight scenes ever.

1. "I have come here to chew bubblegum or kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum." Best. Line. Ever.

Oh Man, the next time I come over, we should rent this and watch it with a couple of cold beers. Hilarity shall ensue.

I can guarantee that you will be laughing your ass off the whole way through. Like Commando, it's cheesy, tons of fun and "so bad it's actually good."
