Critic Review - Village Voice

More than the work of any other filmmaker, Spielberg's output seems uniquely designed to induce in me this queasy false-memory syndrome.

The people above me, especially the first comment, are a bunch of immature *****s, this guy's review touched some of my views on this movie, and his opinion, in my own opinion, is pretty legit.

You guys are such losers, just cursing off any critic who doesn't like a film everybody say it's good. Stop falling for peer pressures you pathetic sh*ts

At least there are a couple other people in this world who don't care for this movie. Even when I was eight I felt I had to scrape the sap off myself after watching it.

This is actually a well-written review by a respected filmmaker. Too bad those of you who disagree with him can only manage a pathetic and ignorant rant as a comeback. But what should I expect, the world is run by the morons...

"This is actually a well-written review."

Come again? A WELL-written review?? Are you f-cking serious?? Here are some quotes from his "review":

"Could E.T. compel Elliot to re-enact the final scene of Taxi Driver?"

"Is E.T. finally coming to terms with his lust for earth women?"

"E.T. definitely seems to find Maureen O'Hara hot."

"What at first appeared to have been a benign botanical visitation from his people may have had an ulterior purpose after all: "They're here to steal our women!"

A well-written review? Really?

This has got to be the WORST "review" I've ever read on this site. It's so unbelievably stupid and non-sensical, I'm baffled that RT accepts this bullsh-t.

His biggest complaint is that "E.T. is a dog movie". That's like complaining that Rocky is a sports movie, or Jaws is a monster movie. He gives NO constructive criticism at all. What a worthless "review".
