Spielberg's screenwriting sounds a bit tinny in parts today, but the film is just as gripping and mesmerizing, thanks to his command as a director and the benevolence of his vision.

The new Blu-ray presentations--crafted with input from Spielberg himself--make the film look better than it ever has.

Steven Spielberg's awesome (in the literal sense), lyrical film about the first contact between humans and extraterrestrials is the kind of movie that gives you goosebumps.
