I think what would "explain a lot about what’s going on with our government and planet" is that as a thirteen year old, you were relying on a John Carpenter movie to inform your understanding of Reagan's economic policies.

 I'll be the one to say it - they missed a golden opportunity here...every Blu Ray should have come with a stick of bubble gum.

 I would probably say I watched movies more than the news at 13. Then again, news was only on from 5:30 to 7:30. There wasn't a news station then, let alone 24 hours of news.

 I'm with RobertTrate... more movie than news when I was seventeen, actually i was playing sports or chasing some tang back then but movies were still over the news.

That said,... I will be buying this on blu-ray. I always loved this movie, not matter how corny it looks now.

Given how campy the film is I think the cover art is perfect. Love this movie. Agree it is one of the few films I'd like to see remade. The subject matter would do well with a more serious Philip K Dick kind of vibe.

 I hate all these "drawn" covers on the Shout Factory Blu-Rays. Which is sad, because I think they're picking some amazing movies.
The "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" cover was an abomination. Waaaaay worse than this "They Live" cover (not that I'm defending it).

 Been waiting for this for a long time. They Live has never had a special edition on dvd so it was great that shout picked it as a cult classic to get the special edition treatment on bluray. Looking forward to features.

Love this movie.  So many great quotes and one-liners.  It comes on TV now and then plus I saw it on Netflix a few months back.

I grew up watching Rowdy Roddy Piper in Mid Atlantic Wrestling, which made They Live even more fun for me.  I am amazed at the movies John Carpenter made on such shoe string budgets.  They Live = $3 MM and Halloween = $325K.  I'm not sure Carpenter would know what to do with a $150 MM budget.

I agree with Rob that this movie should be remade.  Also, I'd like to see a remake of Big Trouble in Little China too; I love that movie!

<gasp>  A remake of Big Trouble In Little China?!?!?!  Blasphemy!
