My Thoughts:
I remember watching this as a child, over and over. I had always adored this movie growing up, I am so excited to be able to give the same love I had for this movie, to my children. I was eagerly awaiting to sit down with my girls and enjoy this movie, as it was forever since I had last seen it. At first, my girls were scared of E.T., you know at the beginning where the little girl (Drew Barrymore) screamed, but after that, they really enjoyed the movie and insisted we get an E.T. (lol). I really loved the newly remastered movie, the picture and sound are amazing, and all the bonus materials was out of this world great too!!

Overall, this movie rockets out of this world, and is one of my all time favorites! i am sure when my girls get older, they too will love this movie like I did!

This movie would be a great stocking stuffer or gift for the upcoming holiday season, and would make a great addition to your Home Movie Entertainment Collection, or even a great family movie night!
