Movie: They Live (1988)

More info at AmazonThe saving grace of this film is its portrayal of the media. When “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s character puts on the sunglasses of truth, billboards, TV, magazines, signs, and papers show their true messages in black and white: “OBEY”, “BUY”, “CONSUME”, “WATCH TV”, “MARRY AND REPRODUCE”, etc. And the movers and shakers of society are revealed as aliens bent on subduing the human race and turning the planet into their ideal desert slave world. Almost no amount of cheesyness could ruin such a premise.
