They Live (1988)

I count many of John Carpenter's films among my favorites and 1988s They Live is one of them. Starring bubblegum chewing and ass kicking pro-wrestler Roddy Piper, this movie moves briskly with loads of action and plenty of explosions to go along with the plots less than thinly veiled swipes at 1980s consumerism and conformity. Curious side note, the evil doers subconscious slogans of "obey" served as inspiration for visual artist Shepard Fairey. They Live - a four star popcorn flick!
