 I remember seeing this the first weekend it opened at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. I was very amused how at the beginning the kids were all playing D&D (or some form thereof). It was a great movie and a great time to be a kid, but I think what made it more special was how you just knew this barrage of wondrous movies was something serioulsy special. You just didn't want this period to end. Curse you E.T. though for making The Thing a box office flop :)

A little off subject perhaps, but one of the few great scenes in Phantom Menace is..........

I agree Darth! It's very strange no one wants to comment on this, maybe because it's a bit if a kiddish movie or a wannabe tear-jerker. I had a good time watching it when it came out and though it tried hard to be emotional, I mostly enjoyed how well it caputred the whole 80s kid's lifestyle. How could you not like a movie that takes place partially on Halloween?!? :)

 I'm buying the bluray and I had the last anniversary dvd release that had both versions. The film is timeless no doubt.

One of the greatest films of all time.  Still holds up.

I was 15 going on 16 the Summer of 82; a SciiFi and comic book geek my entire life. E.T. was the greatest thing since Star Wars and Close Encounters.  It WAS a great movie at the time.  However . . .

Life changed, and I grew up. For all the Spielberg movies that followed, E.T. : the Extra Testicle  started what became his typical movie formula: incredibly disrespectful tweeners and teens with foul mouths, naive or just plain idiot parents or adults in general, and (of course) the evil American government officials.  I first noticed it when I bought the first VHS release of the flick. 

FYI: how come NOBODY pisses and moans about Spielberg changing his classic SciFi flicks?  How many times did he add and delete things from Close Encounters ?  And what about CGing out the guns carried by the evil American government agents for flashlights?
