I’m trying this strategy myself, and so far it seems to be going just as well for me as it does for them. You just can’t get away from something when you’re so intimately tied to it, alien or otherwise.
Not only am I getting sappy to a sci-fi/action movie I’ve seen literally 100 times, but even the commercials are almost making me teary-eyed. There’s just nothing I can do that keeps my mind elsewhere.
I woke up last night a few times and couldn’t think of anything else. At least one time I was fighting, or in some sort of peril, and awoke in the middle of it, my body sore and my heart racing. Ripley fought it all off for a while, at least; I’m just not that tough I guess.
Call me crazy, but I always thought Newt would be a good name for a kid.
