One of Spielberg's masterpieces!

"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

Words cannot describe how much I love this movie!

“ET:The Extra Terrestrial is one of Steven Spielberg's better movies, funny, touching and just wonderful. It not only entertains very young children and their parents but it reaches out to the child within us, that is something I want to feel when I watch a movie from my childhood. I love films like Beauty and the Beast, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins and The NeverEnding Story for exactly that reason. The film is beautifully filmed, with breathtaking cinematography and beautiful scenery. The scene with ET and Elliot on the bicycle is just an amazing scene, I think John Williams's amazing score is to thank for that. The special effects are excellent, and the script is funny and touching. There is one sight gag with ET hiding among Elliot's stuffed animal toys that warms my heart every time. ” read more

"2.1. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Pörröisen perhe-elokuvan klassikossa sekä malliesimerkissä lyhyt ja lihava muukalainen (käytännössä nakkisorminen ja salami-ihoinen Danny DeVito) törmäilee kaljapäissään keittiön kaappeihin. Hämmennyin itsekin, kuinka helvetin hauskaa tämä on. Edes minusta ei löydy riittävästi kyynisyyttä jaksaakseni nyt löytää E.T.:stä mitään oikeasti kritisoinnin arvoista.

“Warning: Spoilers

Okay, everyone knows what happens in "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial", so I'll look at some certain things in it. There's Steven Spielberg's common theme of the father abandoning the family (although I have to admit, I didn't realize that until I read an interview with Spielberg). When I was young, my favorite scene was always the bicycle chase, especially the scene where they knock the siren off of the police car (or even when the truck is dragging the plastic tube with the scientists). I guess that overall, this movie is also a look at the suburban shift that was sweeping the country at the time. All in all, Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace-Stone, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore and Peter Coyote all phoned home some good performances.” read more

" Notes: Even though I grew up watching many movies, this flick was not one of those that I saw thousand times like many other people from my generation. I mean, I did see it back then when I was very young and even though I thought it was pretty neat, it didn't really blow me away like some other movies I saw back then. Eventually, I saw it again not so long ago and it remains a pretty good flick, no more no less. In my opinion, it is a rather typical Spielberg picture, with its positive and ne"

“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."
