‘They Live’ was a classic b sci-fi from back in 1988. John Carpenter directed a classic. I remember thinking about how Rowdy Piper was a perfect good guy as he ran through banks and offices being able to finally see the aliens with the glasses he had stumbled across. More importantly, I was also captured by the look of the aliens and their con-job to take over the planet by putting us all to sleep and becoming their unconscious slaves. Humans were sheep that were led by their comforts into a blissful ignorance (with a splash of subliminal messaging) that Rowdy helped blow up with the resistance.
Two things come to mind as I look to the future. What will we ‘look like’ to our creations, and what will be the final thing that kicks off a resistance? When will it be time to chew bubblegum and kick-ass? And we are all out of bubblegum..
