"E.T. phone home..."

I don't know if it's possible, by any stretch of the imagination, to find Steven Spielberg's E.T. anything less than a perfect movie. The whole experience completely blew me away, and just the thought of this movie being made almost 30 years ago makes the film seem even more amazing.

The whole movie has not dated one bit. Every time we see that l... read more

Spielberg's eternal classic!

E.T. truly is one of the most pleasurable, heartwarming films that I and probably everybody has ever laid eyes on in front of the screen. It is very much loved from Hollywood, from critics and from the public as well. E.T. is a film that is just an unforgettable classic with such famous scenes and excellent pieces of filmmaking. The most famous scene is when E.T. is inside the basket which is stra... read more

An extra-terrestial becomes trapped on our planet & befriends an Earthling boy who shares a it's love for Reese's Pieces. From there, these two beings "from different worlds" (one of the rare times that this phrase is meant literally), began to share each other experiences in a bond that can only result from unconditional acceptance.
A moving picture which teaches that when it come to a dee... read more

“This is such an emotionally powerful film that reflected the important issues of its time period such as the dissecting of live frogs in schools. It goes even further than that with concerns about the USA government's surveillance and intrusion of a family without a father.” read more

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'E.T. phone home.'You might hear someone rattle off this timeless line—drawn-out alien vowels and all—when it's time to call a cab or otherwise call it a night. The loveable alien in the 1982 Steven Spielberg classic "E.T.: The Extraterrestrial" turns this phrase as he longs for his home on a faraway planet."

You know......for kids! (175 movies items)

"Personally, as a kid, I found the movie, sad and depressing. Fun. But sad and depressing. I guess the scary part, comes from the fact that some kids, might be startled at first by the appearance of E.T., and then there is the infamous "scene". But at least everything, is ok by the end of the film. It took a near death of an alien, to get there, though."
