Before Occupy Wall Street introduced the 99 percent and the 1 percent into the discourse, They Live gave us the story of the bubblegum-lacking, ass-kicking common man under the heel of the mind-controlling alien elite.
So put on your glasses, get a copy of John Carpenter’s cult classic about economic injustice, and download this latest edition of The Overview, our series of alternative audio commentary tracks for your favorite movies. In this installment, we uncover the shocking conspiracies behind the genteel facade of modern life:

FAMOUS ONE-LINERS FROM ACTION MOVIES CAN BE TOTALLY DISCONNECTED FROM THE PLOT AND YET BE TOTALLY BAD ASS
And, the biggest reveal of them all:
CONSTRUCTION IS A UNION JOB
You’ll need your own copy of They Live in any format, and you’ll need to download the file so that you can play both at the same time.
Download the commentaries listeners have called call “So good, I don’t even need the movie to enjoy them.” (Don’t get us wrong, we recommend you play the movie too. But it was awfully nice of them to say.)
