How obsessed am I?
With Predator? Eh, so-so. I enjoy the movies immensely, but can't watch any of them more than twice a year. I buy and read the novels, and predators haunt my dreams every now and again, was fighting one last night actually. Other than that, Predator is not my #1.
With Alien? It goes deeper. I probably watched Alien 1 & 3 about 30 times each year. All the others I watch maybe 2-3 times a year. I buy and read the novels, and re-read them often enough. The Alien is often in my dreams. It is my favorite franchise, and I've been very verbal with my friends and coworkers that if I ever get a tattoo, it's going to be the WY logo. The only reason I haven't gotten it is because I find tattoos unattractive, and I enjoy my skin the way it is. Nothing personal to anyone on here who has one.
All that being said, I don't think about it all the time. The Alien isn't constantly there. I have work and responsibilities that take up most of my time. But like somebody else said earlier, it no longer terrifies me. It's an immense source of enjoyment and comfort when I've had a rough day, to dive into something Alien. But it's not my life. I do have an authentic Prometheus theatrical poster framed and up on the wall though. So I'm going to see something everyday no matter what.
