Certain things we must buy.....but for the rest of what this movie is talking about, I totally agree. We get so locked into watching American Idol and CSI that we forget there is a life out there. Well, a lot of people forget.

Here is what my summer consists of........

Camping, boating, fishing, camping, board games, drinking games, cards, bbqing with friends, more camping and boating and fishing. I don't even know what shows are on in the summer, if I am not out with my family or friends doing fun stuff, I am planning our next camping/family trip. And we don't RV it either, we camp in tents.

I wish more of society would turn off the boob tube and have fun with their family and friends. I'm never as happy in the winter as I am in the summer when I can get the heck out of dodge and just be with those I love. Now THAT'S life!

This film looks fantastic, thankyou very much for sharing this with us. I for one intend to watch it later. Why do people still insist that they live in a democracy?>

Thanks for the thread S&F.

A John Carpenter film that I have not seen and without Kurt Russell?

Don't all Carpenters films have a cheesey flavour? Is'nt that part of the charm?

I'm going to have to go out and buy it now. (Checking the cover with my sunglasses first of course.)

If it is remade it'll probably be by Tim Burton. Somone has to keep Jonny Depp in work.

Once again thanks for the thread. I look forward to watching the whole thing.

"They Live" the movie was made in 1988 by John Carpenter and considering it was a time without fancy computer graphics or all that special effects stuff, the movie turned out pretty good. It was the subject matter that made the move so cool and when you begin seeing the subliminal words on the billboards it really concerned me and in a way the movie began to wake me up.

It was a great move that was ahead of its time that helped set the stage in Hollywood for more scifi movies that left the Vampire, Werewolf genre in the dust. Anyway, thanks for posting the video link. It was good to reminisce.

Awesome! I always wondered what was the name of this movie. Thanks for refreshing me and yes this movie have a meaning.

In 1967 Collin Wilson published a book called The Mind Parasites. It's an extremely interesting read, fictional but with an highly probable theoretical base. Aliens, in the form of energy vampires, attach themselves to our umbilical cords that connect us with some kind of life force pool (Guf) which allows us to be naturally interconnected with all other sentient creatures. These "mind parasites" feed on fear, distraction, confusion, etc. and their purpose is to remain hidden so they can continue to feed. These entities seem to appear or become aware of use in the 17th/18th century and man's creativity turns dark and foreboding. In the book, it turns out they have some kind of base on the dark side of the moon and they are somehow encased in the rock itself and can only interact in a psychic manner but they use people as meat puppets to steer popular belief systems and maintain control. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, but this is pretty strange. If you can find it, read it, if you have a copy, PDF it and post it to as Collin Wilson did an excellent job on this book.

Cheers - Dave

Maybe I should watch that movie again. It was not a blockbuster back in the day but it was pretty good.

Do you know where this saying came from?

"They Live" is a great movie and has one of the best fight scenes, the white guy and black guy duke it out when in fact they are in the same boat, being controlled by an unknown, but they fight because they are resisting understanding of their predicament. Divided they stay conquered.

Movies are about the present moment, they are reflection of what's going on inside. So what is the movie "They Live" really about?

Who are the mysterious controllers in real life? Who runs the media? Who commits false flags? Who owns and runs the Federal Reserve, Wall Street? Who's behind the Presidency? Who or what is the real power behind the throne?

The answer is right in front of us, but because of our religious beliefs we are blinded to the truth, we can not see the obvious. The answer of course is that those who wrote the Bible are the same group committing the false flags, enslaving us with their debt money and we dare not name them because we can not confront our own beliefs. So we fight amongst ourselves.

So want to know more? I wrote a whole essay on this:

Put on the hat! Et cetera. Sort of NSFW, but it was on tv during prime night time hours.

The scenes match up pretty well.

I would love a remake of They Live, especially if it was "low budget", so to speak.

Back in the 60s when I was a kid, one of the first conspiracy theories I remember was a controversy over subliminal advertising, that is hidden messages in commercials. I think one of the networks examined the issue and said it couldn't be done effectively. I guess we all accept branding, the constant repitition of brand names so that we think in terms of those products, so the the real message is really in our faces all the time.

I guess from a survival point of view, you always have to watch out for the wolf in sheep's clothing.

Its pretty much a surreal portrait of reality . Except in the real world, once you know whats happening, you cannot merely take off the shades and forget about it . Once the filters of idiocy are removed, the reality of the situation is almost overpowering.
I have to say , that I am very aggrivated that one poster a few above me, decided to turn this into an oppertunity to bash jews. Thats just not appropriate behavior since this thread has JACK to do with that subject.

I was born with those sun glasses. I have always questioned authority, at times to my detriment, but persistent in my own original thought. Imagine if Einstein had followed the masses and not challenged popular belief. For that matter any of our discovering ancestors. I hope the generation coming of age in the information revolution will seek their own conclusions and not rely on the media to hand it to them....sadly it has been handed to this one.

They Live is one of my favorite movies. You used to be able to catch it on cable TV once in awhile but I haven't seen it on in a long time. I agree that it should be remade.

Yes its a bit cheesy but its really all about the message it is sending.

Understanding how "They Live" & "We Sleep"... Thank You Hollywood.

The most extensive breakdown of the movie THEY LIVE you will ever see.

posted on Jan, 27 2010 @ 11:59 AM
This movie is being remade and I heard they are trying to get Mickey Rourke to play the lead part which after his role in The Wrestler would be totally awesome!

Regarding the original They Live and the fight scene I had heard that both actors just kind of kept going with the scene and were even laughing at points etc so the whole thing just sort of happened and was not planned to be so long. I think you can find a reference of this out there if you search.

Great movie, great message!

first time i saw the film was with some mates, we watched that fight scene over and over again lol, we could not belive how long it was!
great movie and the message stuck with me, pretty sure i have a copy somewhere...

This is a 80's CULT CLASSIC! First half of the movie starts off slow.... really slow... but then WHAM, POW, BOOM.... all around greatness.

This concept of subliminal messaging is still true today, maybe not in the same degree as the movie, but none the less it is there. Our subconcious mind picks up on all sorts of variables within sight and sound. It's no wonder why corporations spend BILLIONS on advertising concepts (subliminal research?)....

....I have to stop right here.... I feel a overwhelming urge to spew forth blabbering conspiracy theories that would derail me from thread......

You may not think you are in chains. Read The Creature From Jekyll Island. The United States of America has been in chains controlled by the British Empire Expansionists, the London School of Economics Fabian Socialists, aka the CFR.They have been syphoning off taxpayer dollars, and /or adding on the the deficit past what the taxpayers could ever pay. They have deliberately crippled our country to serve banker interests and to keep the interest payments flowing and have crippled our country. If this is not treason then somebody has forgot the definition. Foreign Aid and the IMF have just been highway robbers with their hands in the cookie jar. Well there aren't any more cookies. So now its time for out and out lockdown of the taxpayers? Obama is gathering his army to get ready for a civil war. Who called for civil war. We only want our country back from the traitors who stole it from us. If America only wakes up and demands her property back we will survive. They actually mean to depopulate us. Get ready for civil war.Obama is ready enough. He not only hates us, so do the bankers,they love the English enough, only not the English peasants, only the wealthy English. The English peasants are going into lockdown as well
They only want to lock us down and/or depopulate us to get more money out of us. It's always hardest to lose those last few pounds.
