A prime example of how to make a masterpiece.

Still my favorite Spielberg film and still angry it didn't win Best Picture (the award should be given for the art, not the subject matter of the film - I am sick of films winning simply because they are about something important. Ghandi was a very well done movie but E.T. will be a classic forever). Rant over. I love the heart and wonder of this movie - and the incredible creativity of all those responsible for creating it. The amazingly adorable Drew Barrymore is a scene stealer and a hell of a little actress at such a young age. I think E.T. and The Wizard of Oz are in a league of their own as al-time fairytale classics.

Liked it as a kid but it doesn't really hold up as an adult.

The Extra-Terrestrial is one of the biggest money makers in box-office history. It is quite possibly the best known of all Steven Spielberg's films. Even at the relatively young cinematic age of two decades, it is beloved by multiple generations of film-goers. Yet it is arguably the most overrated motion picture to arrive in theaters during the 1980s. Obviously, this isn't a popular thing to say, and it's not meant to denigrate E.T. as being badly or clumsily made. In fact, viewed as a fable or an allegory (it's actually based on The Day the Earth Stood Still, which is a thinly-veiled re-telling of the Christ story), E.T. is successful. But there are times, especially during the final third, when it is hugely overwrought. Spielberg has always shown a penchant for overt manipulation, but nowhere is this more obvious than in E.T., where he pulls out all the stops in an effort to bleed tears from the eyes of every audience member. It doesn't take a cynical nature to recognize what the director is doing. Regardless, this is a classic. (In hindsight slightly overemotional but still great).

This is my favorite movie of all time. I HIGHLY recommend it. When I first watched it at age like.. 6... I did not speak a single word for the entire film... completely mesmerized. I've realized as an adult, I have a very soft spot for alien movies and this was the start. It's cinematically stunning.. the music is classic... and the actual story is perfection. This movie is truly a masterpiece. Bravo, Steven Spielberg. MAJOR PROPS

Hihi... Ma première grosse trouille devant un vrai film (Il est moche même s'il est gentil).
September 1, 2018
A touching family film that is worth rewatching many times. The idea of family and friendship is really strong and throughout the movie the child actors were able to show the progression in friendship and how ET slowly got closer to the children. The ending was extremely touching and wrapped up this beautiful craft perfectly. The plot, conflict and characters were very well-made and Spielberg, the writers and the actors all deserve the praise that this film is getting.
