The very first movie I ever watched was E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.
(Nope, I didn’t watch it in the theatre like every other kid in my generation; sadly, my parents didn’t do the “Let’s take the kids to the movies” kind of thing. However, they did buy the VHS from Shoppers Drug Mart when it was on promotion for just $16.99. Funny how you remember stuff like that, eh?)
With E.T., I was transported to another world entirely (pun intended). Never before had I been so enthralled by a story. Aliens! Space ships! Resse’s Pieces! That cute kid Elliott! Wowzers!
Did you love the little dude as much as I did?
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial celebrates its 30th Anniversary with its first-ever release on Blu-ray featuring an all-new, digitally remastered picture and includes the 1982 theatrical movie, an all-new interview with director Steven Spielberg, and “The E.T. Journals” featuring never-before-seen footage from the set of the film. The Blu-ray Combo Pack also includes deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a cast reunion and more!
We got our hands on the Blu-ray and I must say, it’s one of the most enjoyable movie experiences EVER. Not only did my husband and I take a trip down memory lane, but we were able to introduce the boys to one of the “heroes” of our generation. Look for the special edition Blu-ray, on sale now.
And, if you’re still looking for a little pumpkin carving inspiration, try out this Extra-Terrestrial Pumpkin Stencil! I am totally doing this.
