DVD Review: They Live

DVD Review: They Live

By: Bill

After watching Born To Controversy: The Roddy Piper Story, I got the itch to finally watch They Live.

Bottom line, it's really a fun B-movie. I truly had a good time watching it, especially towards the end, and it blows away any movie with Hulk Hogan in it. It would be a great drive-in movie, as well. As much as you liked, or disliked, the movie Running Man, you'll like, or dislike, this movie just as much. It's that simple. It was not a classic of the genre, such as Terminator or Robocop, but it was as good as Running Man, Total Recall, or Predator.

Items of interest:

The price of this on Amazon is $10.99, and it's eligible for Super Saver Shipping. You can get a version of it combined with some other John Carpenter movies for $14.99, but since I knew there was no way I was ever going to watch any of the other movies, I went for the movie on its own for $10.99. For me, it was worth it, although I would have been smarter to try to wait for it to show up in the $5 bin at Wal-Mart or get it used at Blockbuster.
