Family movie night is always a lot of fun at our house. We enjoy watching movies, getting out the popcorn and just spending time with one another. I especially like when we're able to share a movie from our childhood with the kids. That's why I was super excited to learn about E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-ray Combo Pack which was released this month to celebrate its 30th Anniversary!
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.
If you've ever seen E.T., you know that it's a story offering mystery, laughter and wonder! It's one that I still enjoy to this day and am so happy to have had the chance to review this Anniversary Edition. It 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 combo pack includes UltraViolet, a DVD and a Digital Copy of the film, offering fans the opportunity to relive this beloved story on the platform of their choice.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial became the biggest Blockbuster of the year in 1982. It ranked #1 over 16 different weekends. Even today, it remains the fourth most successful move of all-time in the US. Now that's one I want to have in our DVD library and be able to share with my kids. How about you?!
When our review copy arrived, I couldn't wait to sit down and watch it as a family. I loved reliving the story as it had been a long time since my husband or I had seen it. It's one of those movies that is fun to share with the kids and now, with the fantastic quality it's easy to watch and enjoy too! There are even bonus features on the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray that have been enjoyed by all as well. The E.T. Journals, interview with Steven Spielberg, deleted scenes, and much more!
This is definitely a movie I would recommend having in your movie library. It's timeless and one that can be watched and enjoyed for many more years to come by the whole family!
