Re: Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)
I watched "E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial" on AMC last night. I can't remember the last time I saw it. Maybe when my kids were little.
What a great movie. Filled with innocence and good-natured fun and gentle child fears and very real characters. A little overwrought in the last 30 minutes (with John Williams orchestration gushing away), but what the hell. And its aged very well. For a 30 year old flick, it is remakably fresh and still modern and a children's classic that adults can watch. Quintessential Spielberg. And a very young Drew Barrymore almost steals the show as Gertie.
