Synopsis: When an imaginative boy meets a lost alien, it is the beginning of one of cinema’s most endearing friendships, as Elliot (Henry Thomas) helps the marvelous creature he calls E.T. find his way back home before government agents can capture him.

Our Thoughts: I don't believe there is a single person in this world that can honestly say they don't love E.T! I remember watching this movie as a little girl and just falling in love. There's an amazing friendship that blossoms between E.T. and Elliot that is sure to touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes. Even watching it now brings me back and reminds me of what it was like to be a little girl and watch E.T. for the first time. It's truly magical and hands down one of the best movies EVER!

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is definitely a must-see! And the great news is that you can now purchase the 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack with all sorts of bonus features including deleted scenes, the reunion of the cast and filmmaker, the original theatrical trailer, and more.
