They Live (US)/Invasion Los Angeles (EU). Why do truthers care?

I was watching a video on YT yesterday when they mentioned the Title "They Live". So, I looked it up on Wikipedia. For those who don't know the movie:

Originally Posted by Wikipedia
Drifter "John Nada" finds construction work in Los Angeles and befriends fellow construction worker Frank Armitage, who leads him to a shantytown soup kitchen. A disruptive television signal and a preacher both warn of conspiracies, and Nada discovers a nearby church is a front for scientific equipment. After the church is raided and the shantytown bulldozed, Nada retrieves a box of sunglasses from the church's wall, wearing one pair and hiding the rest in an alley dumpster. The sunglasses reveal a hidden reality: media and advertising hide omnipresent subliminal commands to obey, consume, reproduce, and conform, while many of the elite are actually humanoid aliens with grotesque faces.

When Nada confronts an alien woman, she alerts others via a wristwatch communicator. Two alien police confront Nada, but he kills them and goes on a shooting spree with their guns, killing aliens in a nearby bank while one uses its wristwatch to vanish; Nada spares a human police officer. Nada escapes, taking Cable 54 assistant director Holly Thompson hostage. She rejects his claims and pushes him through the window of her luxurious hill-top home before calling the police; Nada escapes, but loses his sunglasses in the fall.

Now a fugitive, Nada returns to the alley and retrieves the box of sunglasses from a garbage truck. Frank meets Nada to give him his paycheck. Frank also disbelieves Nada, but Nada forces a pair of sunglasses onto his face after an extended street fight. Accepting what he has now seen, Frank goes into hiding with Nada. They learn of a secret meeting for anti-alien activists, where they are given contact lenses to replace the sunglasses. The aliens control Earth as they have other planets in the past; they deplete each planet's resources and destroy its environment before moving onto others. If the source of the aliens' broadcast signal can be destroyed, all of humanity will see the hidden reality. Holly arrives to join the cause, apologizing to Nada. The meeting is raided by police, who kill activists; Nada and Frank use a stolen alien wristwatch to escape through a portal, entering the aliens' secret command center.

Nada and Frank discover a banquet celebration of aliens and human collaborators, one of whom (a former shantytown resident) gives them a tour of the facility, assuming they are also collaborators. Nada and Frank exit into the basement of Cable 54, the source of the signal. They fight their way through the building to the roof where the alien transmitter is disguised as a satellite dish. They encounter Holly, who joins them but then murders Frank; she is a collaborator. Nada kills Holly and destroys the transmitter, but is fatally wounded by aliens in a helicopter. With the signal destroyed, humans all over the world discover the aliens in their midst.
Searching for some short clips on YT gave me the following video's (most of them are just clips from the movie (1 person uploading the whole thing)):

@1:09, Colin Young edited the sentence "Kill Illuminati Mission" in the video (there are more video's from him, since this is part 5 of 9, so I'm pretty sure he has more kookery to share)

"True Story", my ass..

Also, check the comment section, lots of nutter comments. One person saying Stefan Molyneux is part of the big scheme, while other say he's "opening yer eyes".

The act of of being creative is, in itself, touching upon the most inner wisdom- the most beautiful part of what makes us humans. Could our works of creativity also be the key that turns the door into the most sacred and ancient of forgotten human knowledge? I believe so, and I'm in hot pursuit of finding out!

All of my research leads back to this fact: We (the human race) have been INFILTRATED at the highest levels of power by what appear to be interdimensional beings, for whom "TIME" and "SPACE" can be easily manipulated to satisfy their nefarious needs. "When" they came is no longer very relevant because our ORIGINAL timeline was changed instantaneously across time and space, at the quantum level. The answers are within us, but it'll take a lot of clever backwards-ingenuity to uncover the answers we seek. Let's put our heads together & figure this out! It'll be fun, kind of like coming up with a "fan theory" of your favorite movie after you've watched it a thousand times... lol ��

Can somebody tell me why this is a thing? CTers see movies as "Brainwash" and "Mind Control". It's really annoying looking this up on yt and most of these being uploaded (the longer one's) by cranks..

I only watch that movie until he says that line, then I change the channel.

I was in a show once where I played an agent for The Eternal Order of They better catchall than Illuminatti.

At any rate, if They can easily manipulate space time... well I for one welcome our new overlords, cuz there's not much we could do to stop them.

Yeah, CTers like to ruin the fun for everyone. I used to love watching implosion video's, but every single vid I found on Youtube always had top comments like: "Where's 9/11??", "No 9/11??" & "Why isn't 9/11 in there? That was the best one around!".

I watch the whole damn thing. That line is one for the ages. I know a few folks irl that cite TL as art reflecting life as they see it but it's nothing more than a guilty pleasure grade B movie, although Meg Foster is always good to watch.

I wasn't even aware that they had. It's a decent movie, and worth watching just for the ridiculous scene where the two leads fight for 10 minutes just to see if Keith David's character will try out the glasses.

No Carpenter movie could really ever be called bad, to my knowledge.
