They Live

I kicked off my 1988 movie marathon with this, and I’m glad I did. I really enjoy re-watching all these John Carpenter movies — I was a pretty big fan of his movies after all — and this one is another enjoyable visit. Yes, that 10-minute fight scene (between the two buddies) is still as ridiculous as ever, but overall this is still such a great story idea, and I love how it builds up to the climax. Great effects work too on the look of the aliens.

Potential ‘They Live’ Sequel Teased by John Carpenter

Filmmaker John Carpenter has taken a hiatus from playing video games to do some promotion for the new Halloween movie. As is usually the case when Carpenter does interviews, questions about his old movies – including the possibility of remakes and sequels – have sprung up. One such question resulted in Carpenter teasing a possible They Live sequel. Is a long-awaited follow-up to the 1988 film on the horizon, or is Mr. Carpenter just having a laugh at our expense? They Live may have been inte...

Inspired by 'They Live,' these glasses block screens

Inventor Ivan Cash of Oakland, California was inspired by the 1988 cult classic They Live to create screen-blocking glasses. In the movie, a drifter (played by Roddy Piper) discovers a box of sunglasses. He puts on a pair and soon learns they reveal hidden messages behind advertising and that many people in charge are actually aliens. Now, Cash's IRL Glasses don't reveal hidden messages but do mask most TV and some computer screens. When you look through the lenses, the screens just go blac...

John Carpenter’s ‘Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998’ Resurrects the Horror Master’s Classic Music

Not only is John Carpenter an acclaimed filmmaker behind some of the best horror movies ever made –  Halloween ,  The Thing ,  They Live  – he’s also the creator of some of the best horror movie music. Just as  E.T.  wouldn’t be nearly as effective without John Williams’ orchestral score, Halloween  would be a lesser film without Carpenter’s eerie yet simple themes, made up of repeating piano melodies that alternate between sporadic and heart-attack fast. Horror movie music wouldn’t be th...

All the Reasons Why John Carpenter's Cult Classic They Live Is as Timely as Ever

In 2015, John Carpenter called They Live “a documentary.” Though his cult classic is nearly 30 years old, its themes of surveillance, income inequality, and the sinking suspicion that the people in charge are way more sinister than we ever realized still feel very potent. A new short doc examines why.Read more...

How to suppress the truth, embarrassed government edition

DC Dave's "Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression" are a good analytical tool for understanding what's happening when governments are embarrassed by revelations of corruption and criminality and get to spinning, a kind of Spicer-Conway masterclass (albeit one that's spoiled by its descent into conspiracy theory with the Vince Foster suicide as an example of such truth-suppression).

The truth behind Pepsi's tone-deaf #blacklivesmatter-commodifying TV spot

DSArms AR-15 Parts+Z Hawk Review

Having worked on antique firearms in the past, I really appreciate the modularity and ease of repair that modern firearms have.  This is especially true in the case of the AR-15 platform.  That being said, quality parts are needed when making repairs or modifications.  Though I come from a gunsmithing background, I  was not aware […] Read More … The post DSArms AR-15 Parts+Z Hawk Review appeared first on The Firearm Blog.
