Watching “They Live” on SciFi Channel tonight.
This movie is sooooo cheesy, but good and a little creepy. (All those skeleton people and the plot against humanity).
Plus, it contains one of the greatest lines in all of movie history:
“I’m here to chew bubble gum and kick some ass, and I’m all out of bubble gum!”
It does seem wierd that after making two totally classic movies in “The Thing” and “Escape from New York”, that John Carpenter
would follow them up with this cheese fest. The story is really cool, but the production values are really bad. And, uh, when Roddy Piper is your action hero, you know that big bucks were not spent. But I have a soft spot for this movie. I just love the end where
Rowdy Roddy zaps out the alien transmitter and the aliens are exposed!! It’s classic.
