Always enjoyed Roddy Piper and Tojo Yamamoto. Those were the good ole days.
I don’t know if Roddy realized it but the movie THEY LIVE is as important as the novels 1984, BRAVE NEW WORLD, and ATLAS SHRUGGED. It gets the message to the common man. Rest in peace Roddy.
Adam Carrolla had Roddy on his podcast recently. It was a fun interview, for anyone interested in downloading it. He sounded like a cool guy. “They Live” is a classic! RIP RRP.
Best fight scene ever?
Not even close to Kirk/Gorn!
THIS IS YOUR GOD
Claudia, I went and watched the movie. Just finished it. Not really that bad considering when it was made and all.
This scene is just the first half of the fight. After Frank throws the glasses off to the side, Rowdy goes after him again and another round of action ensues – including at least seven knee hits from Frank on Rowdy’s crotch.
At the end of it Rowdy forces the glasses on Frank and he sees what he sees.
The whole fight was a re-production of a ring match – suplexes and all. (A little bit self-aware I’m a nerd for knowing what a suplex is.) I kept thinking his career was exactly this – acting like he was fighting.
Anyways, this scene is where the black guy joins him in the fight against the aliens.
Personally, I’m sure I could have gotten him to try the glasses without trying to out-macho him, but then that would have been a really boring part of the movie.
