Who doesn't love this movie? Even if you've outgrown it by now, I'm sure you loved it as a kid!

One of the most overrated movies of all time, the alien is butt-fuckin-ugly, the story is boring, the catchprase is also annoying. Fuck this.

It's perfect and some of the best and most effective filmmaking ever put on the screen. Seeing this with a crowd is an unbelievable experience, and one quickly sees why the film was as successful as it was. A real highligh is Allen Daviau's stunning cinematography, elegant, effective eye-candy.

I saw E.T. when I was like 4 and that night I had a nightmare. I don't feel like ever watching it again, and not just because I got scared.

I LOVE this movie. I used to watch this as a kid, but was never fully aware of the rich thematic complexity that this movie truly had to offer until I was much older. I love the themes of childhood and growing up in a home with parents who are divorced--the subtile and beautifully woven-in references to Peter Pan. And I especially love the similarities between E.T. and Jesus. This was, and will continue to be one of my all-time favorite movies.

For years the most popular film in history, Spielberg's greatest achievement here is that he makes E.T. (a Carlo Rambaldi creation that's part mechanical, part little-person-in-a-suit, and allegedly voiced by Debra Winger!) the most fully realized character in the film. Warm and true to life (especially in the characterization of the kids, who, today, would be little more than trendily dressed, wise-cracking little creeps), with an exhilarating John Williams score

I can actually say I was at the movie on opening night for to see this movie. Does that make me old? I was very, very young. It will forever be a classic in the hearts of so many. There was so much depth to the storyline. The love, dedication, sacrifice and abundance of trust between the characters.

In hindsight, this film really isn't as good as one thinks it is as a kid. Still, it has enduring charm, if you can get past some of the annoying acting of the lead.

When I watched this movie I was eight years old and I loved it. I must have seen it at least 5 times when it came out and I cried every time, even when I knew what was going to happen. Enough said.

This is such a treat. I still cry when I watch it, and it is how old? Well, you do the math. I once worked with an 25 year old autistic guy, this was the only movie he would watch, and watched it over and over. I still wonder about that, maybe ET is real?

I remember this being better than it is. Alien being inexplicably has magical powers and Dragonhearts with a kid for no apparent reason. Vague yet menacing government agency is terrifying for no reason, apparently wants to help but sends the whole police force after them. Makes no sense.

Amazingly directed simple tale is near perfect in execution, yet relies on happenstance storytelling-that is to say, things happen because it moves the plot forward-logic aside.* But it's charming nonetheless.

A classic that just about everybody has seen and for good reason. For my taste, it gets slightly too sentimental in parts, but for a movie geared towards kids the tone is great. Effects have come a long way, but I'll take E.T. over 99% of science fiction movies being made today.

Now this was one of my first favorite movies. Who couldn't love ET he was such a fun loving alien. Did anyone realize that was Drew Barrymore as the little girl what fun. This is definitly a touching story that will always be a classic and has remained something that every child has seen or at least heard of. It will make you laugh it will make you cry. In the end it will make you happy that you have family to share this film with.
