E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (Theatrical Release USA 1982)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
one of the best movies of 1982—is another Steven Spielberg-directed, cultural phenomenon. This classic family film provides a strong acting platform for introducing the acting talents of young Henry Thomas. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial works as an outstanding movie selection for all audiences and a terrific child/adult share movie.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Steven Spielberg for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg for making the film possible. Additional cast/characters include: Mary (Dee Wallace), Keys (Peter Coyote), Michael (Robert MacNaughton), Gertie (Drew Barrymore), Greg (K.C. Martel), Steve (Sean Frye), Tyler (C. Thomas Howell), and Pretty Girl (Erika Eleniak).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a childhood classic that will become as much a part of the nursery library as collections of Disney animation films, Beatrice Potter stories, Hans Christian Andersen tales, and the illustrated Berenstain Bear stories.
