E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
2 Stars
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: With Peter L. and Anne Lavin at Hamden Cinemart (Sneak Preview)
Rating: PG Year: 1982 Category: Sci-Fi
Director: Steven Spielberg Time: 115 min. Writer: Melissa Mathison

Mine: Kind of fun, but I never understood what the hoopla was about. A routine suburban drama, with an E. T. thrown in for interest. One terrific scene, where E. T. gets drunk and Elliot does too at school.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A 10-year-old boy (Thomas) befriends a creature from another planet that's been stranded on Earth. A warm, insightful story of childhood innocence, frustration, courage, and love... with a remarkable ``performance'' by E. T. An exhilarating experience for young and old alike. Screenplay by Melissa Mathison. John Williams won an Oscar for his soaring score, as did the sound and visual effects teams. Trivia note: Debra Winger contributed to E. T. 's voice.
