They Live (1988)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Horror
Director: John Carpenter
About a drifter who finds a special set of sunglasses that can detect an alien race which has infiltrated and taken over the planet. Only he can find a way to stop the alien menace and convince others of this growing threat.
This movie is quite unique. Magical sunglasses, an epic wrestling match in the streets (perhaps the best choreographed movie fight of all time). There is humor, violence, some of the best one liners in movie history. John Carpenter has had his ups and downs as a director, but when he is on his game, he is exceptional. This was one of those excellent films that few others could have worked so marvelously.
