Happy 40th Anniversary to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
It is the E.T. 40th Anniversary, so it is time for a special edition blu-ray + DVD + Digital with fantastic bonus content.
Yes, as someone who saw E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial in a movie theater more than once in 1982, realizing that it’s been 40 years makes me feel old.
But, of course, it also brings back warm feelings for me and my kids who I introduced to the classic film when they were little.
The movie is funny and full of adventure, but most of all it is bursting with love and good feelings.
Fans young and old will love watching the movie again and seeing all of the bonus features.
Seeing the movie again was a fun walk down memory lane for me.
Also, very interesting to see it again with the ‘fresh eyes’ of an adult in 2022.
Life has definitely changed in the last 40 years!
