The film is about a small boy and girl try to help a friendly alien find his way back home. This is the movie that started it all and what I mean is, we got movies today about friendly aliens and some kids have to look after it. Steven Spielberg always brings that light heated feel in some of his family friendly movies and he did it so well here.

Touching film about the relationship between a boy, Elliot, and an alien, E.T. Spielberg's direction is superb. A fine soundtrack by Williams adds to the film's quality.

A classic for children

Possible Spoilers

Spielberg is a master of cinema. There's no doubt. He can always top himself, and when he doesn't, he makes a damn good movie.
Henry Thomas is officially my favorite child actor of all time (not working today). The amount of emotion and genuine reactions the children in this film part is incredible. Thomas made Spielberg at the audition cry, and he cried again when ET (a plastic prop) in the movie parted.
The whole movie depends on the performances of the children, and they are all perfectly casted, which just proves to show even more that Steven Spielberg is a cinematic genius in his own right.
There are so many iconic scenes in this film, such as the finer to finger touch, Elliott flying on his bike, the gang racing around a construction site and they all manage ...

ET: The Extra-Terrestrial review

Elliott (Henry Thomas) adopts an E.T. (Extra-Terrestrial) who was left behind. The timeless flick had a gorgeous score and touching moments. Matters of friendship, perseverance, having a heart and communication were exhibited. The screenplay was sensitive, such as the following lines: Ellitiot – “You could be happy here, I could take care of you. I wouldn't let anybody hurt you. We could grow up together, E.T.” “You've gone someplace else now. I'll believe in you all my life, every day. E.T., I love you.” Michael – “Damn it, why don't you grow up? Think about how other people feel for a change.” The special features with interviews were fascinating in itself. A childhood global classic for all ages to love and cherish, E.T. delivers the maturity of one person while enjoying the adv...

E.T. phone home!

When a movie is a hit it's sometimes called "home run." But Steven Spielberg doesn't hit home runs he hits Grand Slams! If there is any film that absolutely defines Spielberg in my mind it's this one. This film is a complete and total success both as entertainment and within the framework of the director's objectives. It's very odd to look at these films in retrospect after most of them have already gone on to become world-wide phenomena and see that many studios rejected not only this film but many other successful Spielberg ventures. Oddly enough Hollywood insiders have always viewed him as a risk taker. This film's success, however, shouldn't have surprised anyone at all. In E.T. we have a wonderfully structured story that seamlessly crosses over from fairy tale to comedy to drama with...
