Updated on April 6, 2013

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Returns on Blu-Ray

E.T. is 30 years old. The little alien that charmed audiences in the hit movie "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" may always remain ageless and timeless in the film, but the film is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its June 1982 US release. To mark the occasion of one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, the movie is being re-released in a Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy /UltraViolet pack so you can watch it all over again in high-definition at home.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray - 30 years later, it's still a wonderful movie for the whole family

I don't know how many times I've seen "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," but this movie can still make me laugh and cry. It's my favorite Stephen Spielberg movie, and I still silently cheer when the kids take off with ET on their bikes, and get teary-eyed when Elliott (Henry Thomas) leans over ET's seemingly lifeless body and says, "I'll believe in you all my life, everyday. E.T... I love you." I saw ET at the theaters when it was originally released, and my kids have both seen it on DVD at home. They love it as much as I do. All these years later, "E.T." is still a crowd pleaser.

Product description: Steven Spielberg's 1982 hit about a stranded alien and his loving relationship with a fatherless boy (Henry Thomas) struck a chord with audiences everywhere, and it furthered Spielberg's reputation as a director of equally strong commercial sensibilities and classical leanings. Henry Thomas gives a strong, emotional performance as E.T.'s young friend, Robert MacNaughton and Drew Barrymore make a solid impression as his siblings, and Dee Wallace is lively as the kids' mother. The special effects almost look a bit quaint now with all the computer advancements that have occurred since, but they also have more heart behind them than a lot of what we see today.

 

E.T. was nominated for nine Oscars and won four.
