They Live

This is where I say something about bubble gum, right?

Even if you haven’t seen this late ’80s sci-fi thriller — heck, even if you haven’t heard of it, or its star, Rowdy Roddy Piper — there’s a chance you know the line by heart.

“I have come here to chew bubble gum, and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubble gum.”

Of course, there’s much more to the film than those 18 words, from Piper’s epic brawl with Keith David to the film’s warnings about consumerism run wild.

Grab a pair of sunglasses, stare down dastardly alien invaders, and start chompin’.
