Life’s guilty little pleasures…

# 164 = Very bad 80’s sci-fi.

I’m sitting here watching 1983’s critically acclaimed sci-fi surprise hit…



For those of you unfamiliar here is a synopsis…

“Aliens pretending to be friendly come to Earth and are received openly. The aliens have masqueraded themselves to look just like humans. When it is discovered that the aliens’ planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins.”

For those of you who ARE familiar I have but one thing to say…

“We’re pleased to eat you… I mean MEET you!”



Huh?  Who woulda thunk it?  One of the most inspiring lines I’ve ever heard… In V?  That’s just weird!

“I am frightened like a child who fears the dark,
But we must fight this darkness that is threatening to engulf us.
Each of us must be a ray of hope and do our part…
and join with the others til we’ve become a blinding light…
triumphant over darkness.
Until that task is accomplished, life will have no meaning.

More than anything else remember which side you are on… and FIGHT for it. 

We will march beside you and sing the song of victory!”

  1. Wow, for a moment there I thought I was reading a post from my husband.   He is so into bad 80s movies.  That is a good quote though.
