ET The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition
It is a real pleasure and a honor for me
to review E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray +
DVD + Digital Copy + Ultraviolent. Family Friendly Gaming was provided
that exact version on two discs. It has been many year since I last saw
E.T. In fact it was all the way back in 1982.
Steven Spielberg is the well known director responsible for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. We learn in the special features that he wanted to tell the story of his parents divorce from the child's viewpoint. It is also the story of child and his special friend. In this case it is an alien who is accidentally left behind.
There are a few things parents need to be aware of when discussing E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition. There are a few bad words that are in this movie. Not many, but they stuck way out. Everyone is very friendly to the alien, and the alien is himself friendly to humans.
There are certain humorous scenes in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition I had forgotten all about. The little alien is left home alone. He explores the house and finds the refrigerator. He finds beer in there and commences to drink it. The effects it has on him are pretty funny. It is also a light lesson on the dangers of alcohol.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition excels in the bonus features - which is a really good thing for a movie like this one. Steven Spielberg reflects on E.T., the E.T. journal, Deleted Scenes, A Look Back, The E.T. Reunion, The Music, Trailers, and more are bonus special features in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition.
I find it fascinating to see Drew Barrymore as a child in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition. Some of the fashions, as well as government procedures are also very interesting to see. The special effects did not impress my children, but I remember how good they looked all those years ago.
My youngest son was scared in the beginning of the movie. He thought E.T. was scary looking. I did not have this reaction when I was a child, but feel it is important to let parents know. He did come around and decide E.T. was okay, and felt bad when he died. Explaining the coming back to life allowed us an opportunity to discuss the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I do not recall which special feature, but in one of them they discussed how E.T. was actually a plant. Which made me wonder if alcohol would actually have that effect on a plant. That is the kind of discussions millions can participate in for decades. I also found it interesting how many other alien related movies were being made at that time in history.
All of this review without one phone home reference. :)
