E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial. *drops mic with dramatic flair* Remember, “Beee. Goood.”? That movie, to this day, can make me cry. Before it hit the theatres, that’s all we were talking about at school at lunch and during free period. Everybody wanted to see it. Everybody. I fell in love with that whatever-the-h*ll-it-was…extra-terristrial. “Elllliottt.” Ugh. Doesn’t it still get you? C’mon, who didn’t love that thing? (Although, looking at it now, it’s a little creepy.) Remember the feeling when E.T. was dying? I’m not ashamed…I was sobbing, absolutely sobbing in the theatre, and I was not the only one! And then when he held up his finger at the end, the light came on and he said, “I’ll. be. right. herrrre.” Ugh. My adolescence!
One of the best movies ever made. Hands. Down. Thank you Steven Spielberg.
