Movie: They Live

This campy 1998 John Carpenter movie starring wrestler (Rowdy) Roddy Piper was a pure delight from start to finish. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet has some themes of media manipulation and people selling out the future of humanity to make a quick buck resonate more than I wished they did.

And the alien makeup, seen above, and only visible in the movie to characters wearing special sunglasses, still looks incredible. This movie is worth tracking down—rental on AppleTV was the only way I managed to find it.
