    It's always scary revisiting old favorite movies as you grow older because you're always terrified you'll never capture the way you felt about it before.

    Then there are movies that are scary upon revisit because you realized they tried to warn you about your world and a lot of it went right over your head. You realize there was a message there and that you never fully opened the envelope.

    They Live is that second sort of movie for me.…

    They set the stage, choose the music, and strike up the band.
    We're told to shut up and dance.

    The applause is all theirs, the pennies they throw at us are all we get.

    Rory Kinnear professional creep...

    While not my jam this is definitely fun for the most part. Simon Pegg feels like the right casting for someone who is at times charming and at others kind of whiny and annoying. Lake Bell I always enjoy but at times it felt like she was stuck taking the backseat to her own story.

    Lastly where can one find a building full of people who immediately love you and are invested in your happiness is that just a British thing I don't know about? I also liked the twist of the actual date being all about the pairing.

    This is a seriously entertaining film but suffers from the fact that at no point does it deliver the Crazy Train needle drop that would be perfect for it.

    Pine and Denzel are both great the story is simple but effortlessly gripping. The tension keeps rising for almost the entirety of the runtime. It also is a great example of how shitty our lives are in a system that values share price over safety and human lives.

    There are other Tony Scott films I like better but this is a solid example of the stuff that made him great.
