DVD of the Week: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 30th Anniversary Edition

by  |  October 9th, 2012  |  News

It’s been 30 years since audiences were first introduced to director Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi masterpiece ‘E.T. The Extra Terrestrial’. The timeless themes of friendship set in the middle-class suburbs of the 1980′s, where a single mother struggles to raise her 3 children, still hold up today.

Using his tested formula of “ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances” along with his ability to take children seriously and give them dignity as people, Spielberg made E.T. as enjoyable to watch today as it was when it was released 30 years ago.

A feat so few directors have been able to duplicate, though John Hughes comes to mind.

For the first time Universal Studios is making E.T. The Extra-Terrastrial available on Blu-ray!

Synopsis
