over-hyped movie. i understand that it would’ve been seen as something of a breakthrough in it’s time, but i didn’t enjoy it as much as i’d hoped too. it was fairly predictable.

In his adventure on Earth. Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (1982) is undeniably a film everyone must see at least once in their lives. Whether you were an 80s kid and grew up watching this film with your family, or are living in the modern world, looking to see what all the hoopla surrounding this movie is all about, one cannot argue the legendary status this film has grown to have since its release. If you do decide to watch this film again (or for the first time), you will be utterly blown away at the power, uniqueness, and timelessness this film possesses in every frame of it. Some would argue that this is Spielberg at his best. And rightfully so. If not, this film stands head and shoulders above 80s films, sci-fi films, and 20th century film in general. It, in my mind, will never be equaled in beauty and emotion. The film is captivatingly intelligent, yet, as just stated, is unbelievably emotional in its delivery and mood (especially during the scene’s famous ending scenes that you just HAVE to see for yourself). As is always worth mentioning, the acting in this film is perfect and viewer-grasping in a multitude of ways. Whether it’s the poignant acting of Henry Thomas (as Elliot), the adorable performance of a young Drew Barrymore (as Gertie), Dee Wallace (as Mary), or Sean Frye (as Steve), one can’t help but feel as though they’re part of the movie, experiencing the experiences the characters throughout the film, and relating to them while doing so. As it blew away the minds children who watched this film in the 80s, this film will blow you away to the moon and back on a bicycle fit for two, in much the same way as is shown on the film’s iconic poster. Do I recommend it? Yes. Very highly, in fact. So “phone home” and make this film your next pleasurable and mesmerizing film experience.

One of two movie (the other is ‘Beaches’) that can make me cry each time I see it. A wonderful movie even after many many years.

A classic but also a bit if a children's movie and I have a feeling it would not be as good upon re-watch
