One of the greatest movies ever made.
No one has ever made a valid critcism of this movie.
I donīt know what the 28 percent of the audience that doesnīt like this movie must be thinking. its as simple as this:
you donīt love e.t, you donīt love movies. E.t is the definition of movie magic.

A story of friendship that can never be replicated; E.T. is a milestone in storytelling, directing, and emotionally impacting movies. Spielberg proves his mastery of the craft with this extremely fun and touching story of an unlikely friendship that deserves all the praise it gets. I recommend this to anyone.

However technically proficient the filmmaking may be the sentimentality is cloying not enduring, and you know I'm right.

A genuine sci-fi masterpiece that is detailed, exciting, strongly directed, and uniquely heartfelt.

I was never a fan of this movie, especially because I think E.T. kind of creeped me out when I was young. Watching it now I do wonder why they went with such an ugly design for the alien species, because it seems like Elliott's desire to treat him as a pet would make sense if he looked cute. I don't really understand the logic of these kids throughout the movie, because there seems to be no reason to not tell their Mom about E.T., especially since Elliott freely told her about "the goblin" before. It's as if they keep him secret just so there's something to do through the rest of the movie. The seeming antagonist is some unexplained government agency that just wants to help too, so in the end the only conflict is that E.T. is dying because...um...just because. The interaction of the kids is realistic, and not in an annoying fashion like in The Goonies. I also like that the mom had her own issues going on but seemed to really care about her kids without being overbearing. The weird bond/link that Elliott has with E.T. is a cool concept even if it's not explained and comes out of nowhere. It's a movie with several magical moments, and I can see why it connected with a generation of kids, but when you peel away the magic you realize that there isn't much of a plot. Frankly, E.T. doesn't do much that is special or unique, and I don't think I'll need to watch it ever again.

This movie gives you a completely different direction of what an alien encounter could be like. I love this film because it's more of a buddy movie than a sci-fi movie. All of the characters are equally likable in their own way. One of the happiest but saddest endings.

Um dos melhores filmes de todos o tempos. Uma obra prima de Spielberg.

Sometimes I just get an urge to watch this again. This is by far one of Spielberg's best films and the John Williams score is amazing. It looks great on Blu-Ray! It is WORTH the upgrade from DVD.

If aliens ever come back to earth, we need to kill them as soon as possible. Then, we can sell their cell stems to the tyrant Obama for his Planned Parenthood experiments. With the advanced alien DNA, Planed Parenthood would be able to clone more babies to throw in their dumpsters. The dumpsters would fill up faster and they would have to schedule an extra pickup every week, which means more jobs and maybe some overtime for Tommy The Trash Man. Come back, ET. We want to kill you so that we can kill babies and create jobs. Elliott's going to turn 14 soon, he'll need to get a job. I'm sure they'll be hiring at the cell-stemming plant by then. Who are you voting for? I'm writing in Joe Lieberman, I miss that frumpy jelly-spined loser.
