In honor of Universal Studios 100th Anniversary Steven Spielberg's alien classic E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial has been re-released on DVD and for the first time in Blu-ray! Read the Kidzworld Review of the Anniversary Edition of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial!

E.T.

There is a reason E.T. is considered one of Steven Spielberg's all-time best movies, and has become one of the most famous rides at Universal Studios. When it first came out in 1982 it was the biggest blockbuster of the year and was nominated for 9 Academy Awards!

The story may be strange, but it's also heartwarming, and combines all the elements of a great family movie, with a twist that's out of this world if you catch our drift. The story revolves around a little boy who feels estranged and a little alien himself and his encounter with an actual alien he affectionately calls E.T. who needs to get back to his own planet. The odd duo turn out to be the best of friends and do whatever they have to, including defying the authorities, to complete the mission.

Bonus Features

The Universal Studios Anniversary Edition of E.T. has some major perks, digitally re-mastered the E.T.Combo Pack is a DVD, Blu-ray and Digital copy (so that you can watch it on iTunes or the media player of your choice). The movie has been digitally remastered to restore the original quality of the film. Check out what else it comes with:

  • Steven Spielberg and E.T.: the Academy Award-winning director tells audiences about his experience making E.T. and what it has meant to him after all these years.
  • The E.T. Journals: If you're a film buff and love props and special effects, this behind-the-scenes look at how the film was made will be right up your alley.
  • Deleted Scenes
  • The E.T. Reunion: The cast reunites to talk about what the film has meant over the years

The Bottom Line

E.T. is one family film that has stood the test of time, and is as endearing and lovable as the day it came out in 1982. If you're a cinema buff, it's essential viewing, and you probably won't stop saying "phone home" and pointing your finger for at least a week. Spielberg is a master of the blockbuster genre, but not all the special effects can age well and new viewers may find the effects and E.T. himself a little cartoony given how slick today's special effects can be with computer graphics.

While the many bonus features are a nice touch, the major bonus of the Anniversary Edition is that you can enjoy it on Blu-Ray and even more importantly on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
