I love when there's just one *** bashing a movie totally contradicting everybody else. You are so alone you lonely, lonely man. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! My balls itch.

"Has just not held up"? This, my friend, is one of the longest-lasting Science Fiction movies out there. Solid story, amazing acting by Richard Dreyfuss, a fantastic score, and special effects that hold their own against those of today. I wasn't even *alive* when it was released, but it remains my favorite Sci-Fi movie of all time.

"Special Effects that hold their own against those of today."

OK it's your opinion to say the movie has held up against the test of time, but that statement is just flat out wrong. The special effects don't hold up against ****. I can't even read a comment like yours without immediately assuming your stupidity. Don't do that.

I just saw the Special Edition Blu Ray and the effects are fine there. Also, stop being a tired cliche and turning everything into an IQ test.

Special effects today are way too fakey. The special effects in this movie are way more engaging and interesting than those in say Transformers or... blast what the devil do you kids watch these days... Twilight.

If the effects looks real, if they are seemless, like there is actually a UFO actually there (witch it absolutely does) then it will always hold up against any technology. It's like saying, I can kill you with a long sword because it's easier and that a slightly shorter sword is useless, they both have sharp edges.

"Has just not held up"? I'm sorry, what paper did you say you write reviews for? The Mountain Xpress in Asheville NC? 'Nuff said.

I hate it when Rotten Tomatoes counts ratings not accompanied by a review. I think those shouldn't even count, positive or negative.

"Has just not held up."

That's counts as a review?

I hate it when Eduardo L. spams one-phrase reviews saying that they should not count. I don't think his comments should be allowed.

Ken Hanke really seems to dislike Spielberg, as far as I can tell. -_-

I just saw the Special Edition and it was the first time I had ever seen the film. And let me tell oh boy does it ever hold up.

You're blind, deaf, and dumb. Helen Keller could have written a better review. Watch it again. Then watch it again. If you still don't get it, quit life. You fail.

1st - Isn't 3 stars outta 5 "fresh"??

2nd - Ratings not accompanied by a review are bullsh-t. If you're going to rail against a film that everyone else regards as a classic, then you better back it up.

You must be one of those silly special effects obsessed nerds who just care about what they physically see and search from left to right for strings for puppets etc.
