They Live (1988)

I watched this 1988 cult classic Sci-Fi/Horror movie They Live on Netflix DVD. It was written and directed by John Carpenter and based on the 1963 short story by Ray Nelson called “Eight O’clock in the Morning” originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. This film stars wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper (Nada), Keith David and Meg Foster. It was about a drifter who discovers sunglasses that when worn reveals a ruling class of aliens that have left subliminal messages everywhere. I will give this move 3 out of 5.

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum.”

Nada (Used by Duke Nukem in the 3D Realms game Duke Nukem 3D)
