This film describes what ET did before he got a job at BT
But seriously, a classic work of SciFi from Spielberg, co-starring a young Drew Barrymore.
A group of aliens visit earth and one of them is lost and left behind stranded on this planet. The alien is found by a 10 year old boy, Elliot. Soon the two begin to communicate, and start a different kind of friendship in which E.T learns about life on earth and Elliot learns about some new values for the true meaning of friendship. E.T. wants to go home, but if Elliot helps him, he'll lose a friend...

This must have been the first film to suffer from pirate videos on a massive scale. Since the UK didn't get it until about 9 months after the US, people could go into US cinemas, video it and sell it over here. As you would expect the quality was *bad word*, but they were everywhere.
I didn't see it properly until it was on TV, and I think I was too old to appreciate it properly. Suprising, that they have never made a sequel to such a popular and sucessful film.... (ET: Leave home).
I think parts of it are very frightening for young kids, and other parts too cute for older kids. My kids liked it anyhow.

There are scenes (the bicycles) and quotes (phone home) that are going to be around for ever.

there was a sequel of a book.
i read it years ago.
about 7 or 8 yrs i think.
all i remember is that the book was
very very long
and it was about ET coming back
to see his friends and taking them
for a ride in his ship.
there was a very similar scene in matrix.
here though i think the kids wore a helmet
to help them understand and learn things
very quickly not the plugs they used in matrix.

I remember watching E.T as a young child with my mum and an aunt at the cinema. We all came out sobbing our little hearts out. I dread watching it again even now because I still cry. Oh well, such is life.
