"It's ok, it has good 'hidden' meanings/symbolism"

THEY LIVE is a very appropriate movie in today's world, considering the times we live in, with the likes of many sheeple right now being awakened to the reality of: mind control, the illuminati, the lies of NASA, the bilderberg group, the fake moon landing, the revelation of flat earth being true (look up Rob Skiba's YouTube channel and look for his video titled ‘debunking flat earth 101’), the new world order (NWO), the ‘covering of one eye’ symbolism, the 666 hand gestures many celebrities do, the freemasons and freemasonry that run most of the world, project paperclip, the antarctic treaty, satanic bloodlines, skull and bones, weather modification/ge­oengineering, predictive programming (ODD REALITY on YouTube has a great video on this, about 9/11 – he shows many examples of predictive programming of the event before it even happened), the elite – and how they run this world, the rockefellers, the rothschilds, bohemian grove, secret societies, the snake/satanic symbolism in the vatican – in parcticular the Audience Hall, NASA and how they film mars footage on Devon Island (here on earth!!!) and rob the hard working taxpayers millions of dollars DAILY to continue funding their lies, haarp, cern, crispr, and many, many more. There are so many things that the sheeple aren't aware of, which is why THEY LIVE is very appropriate in today's world where the masses (most of society) don't understand or even believe for a second that the world they live in is literally like the matrix, where there are very evil, corrupt, forces at work, and people don't even realize it. They need to ‘see’ it for themselves (hence why the symbolism of wear the sunglasses from the main character in this movie, is a popular metaphor for basically ‘taking the red pill’ as it were (matrix reference to when Neo has to choose between the red or the blue pill in ‘the matrix’ movie), to the reality of this world).

"John Carpenter At His Best"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

John Carpenter has always shown that you don't need to spend mega millions to make a great movie and he does it once again with “They Live”.

Iconic that nearly all of Carpenters movies bar a few have always been panned by the critics yet years later they have gone on to be recognised as classics and let's not forget that “Halloween” 1978 is still the most successful independent movie of all time not to mention he gave birth to none other than Michael Meyers. “They Live” is classic Carpenter from start to finish, it's a slow burner at the beginning but once the true nature of the story emerges its a sheer rollercoaster ride to the very end with a stellar performance from Roddy Piper and Keith David.

On 4K “They Live” looks stunning, the HDR colour grading brings the picture to life with rich colours and deep blacks, yes there is a certain amount of grain present but so it is with most older movies scanned into 4K, the 5.1 DTS Master sounds incredible, in my opinion, better than the 5.1 on the standard Bluray you also get with the 4K Edition plus there is a bonus disc with enough content to keep any Carpenter fan happy.

With Halloween, Prince Of Darkness, The Fog, Christine and Escape From New York all on 4Kit must only be a matter of time before his greatest film “The Thing” gets its long-overdue release on 4K.


They Live

A drifter discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth.

A homeless drifter discovers a reason for the ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor: a conspiracy by non-human aliens who have infiltrated American society in the guise of wealthy yuppies. With the help of special sunglasses that reveal the aliens' true faces and their subliminal messages (“marry and reproduce,” “submit to authority”), our hero tries to stop the invasion. This satire of Reaganomics and the “greed is good” era also has one of the funniest (and longest) fight scenes in American cinema.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The film was was responding to the start of the US rust belt and Reagan-era consumerism, but its themes of working-class subjugation and omnipresent media control have only become more pressing. " – Phil Hoad
  • " Behold the message as articulated by John Carpenter's sublime sci-fi opus: “I'm giving you a choice: Either put on these glasses, or start eating that trashcan.” " – Calum Marsh
  • " They Live is the looniest movie of the season and also one of the most engaging. " – Dave Kehr
