special TCM presentation 30th anniversary screening of E.T.

This movie is dear to our hearts and my daughter (avid film fan) considers its soundtrack her favorite of composer, John Williams' historic collaboration w Steven Spielberg. So we bought tix for this event right away - also eager to see intro by Ben Mankiewicz with Drew Barrymore, for some history & behind the scenes anecdotes. Viewing this on the big screen was WONDERFUL. That scale reveals detailed expressions and amazing range of the young actors. The perspective & editing immediately pull audience into the action - from surreal atmosphere to natural interplay between children. These elements and "E.T"'s compelling character are beautifully served by the symphonic score -- building until it soars (along w Eliot and E.T.), echoing the characters' angst, and resolving as celestial tones key the transcendent theme. {Initially disappointed when VENUE failed to project TCM's Intro until its final 3 min. Tho magic of E.T. needs no introduction, I'd like to see the piece separately

A time-less classic that I can never get tired of watching! It was wonderful to see it on the big screen again, and as I stuffed my face with popcorn and Reeses Pieces, I believe somewhere in there I found a chance to shed a tear! E.T., you'll always be Right Here... in my heart !!!

A piece of my childhood, revisited

By xerxesthegreat

I remembered watching this movie as a child and being totally enraptured by the misty California nights and Elliot's unique experience with a lost and lonely alien. This movie is imaginative and absorbing even today. In this world of slick computer generated images it is nice to see how shockingly realistic animatronics appear. And I have to admit, this movie still makes me cry. Spielberg has an incredible ability to weave a spell in which the audience feels like they're present in the world he has created on the screen, connected to the characters they're watching. There are few movies made today that engage me in this manner; most of them I won't even remember after a few weeks. But E.T. is an enduring classic because it makes viewers care. This is a special gift that no one should pass up. I highly recommend this movie to children young and old. And if you have a chance to see it on the big screen, do not hesitate to do so!
