E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: Mini Review

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Blu-ray) – Children of the ‘80s rejoice! Steven Spielberg’s family-friendly, 1982 alien classic, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, is finally available on Blu-ray. And boy does it look and sound great! You probably know the story by now — an alien creature left on Earth befriends a young boy who tries to help him get back home. The movie launched the careers of actors Henry Thomas and Drew Barrymore, put Spielberg at the top of the Hollywood totem pole, and gave us enough pop culture material that we’re still quoting the film 30 years later. Although this is the 20th anniversary cut of the film only (meaning no guns are shown), the restoration is impeccable and the film has never looked or sounded better (it sports a 1080p image and 7.1 DTS-HD sound mix). Put this on your must-own list now. Special features include deleted scenes, a look back on the film with Spielberg, many making-of featurettes, and more. A regular DVD and digital copy are included as well. Film **** Blu-ray **** (4 out of 5 stars).
