‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ Available to Come Home

Many people who attended the 1982 Cannes Film Festival remember E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial as an overwhelming force that so captured everyone’s heart and interest that “phone home” was the catch-phrase along the Croisette.  The darling of that prestigious film fest that year, E.T. (one of the titles for the KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Search, now out on DVD and Blu-ray) has stood the test of time and equally delights a new generation, as our KIDS FIRST! youth film critics’ reviews attest: “This quirky family classic is a favorite of mine,” says Blake Hawes, age 15. Julianne Noone, age 12, rates it “six out of five stars because it’s absolutely amazing, entertaining and enjoyable.” “This is the best sci-fi film,” says Cheyenne Nguyen, age 8. “Steven Spielberg, even in the 1980s, went above and beyond to create something new,” says Victoria Burns, age 14, comparing the film’s special effects favorably to what has evolved now, 30 years later.
