DISC SPOTLIGHT: 'E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial' 30th Anniversary Edition

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray (PG)

Movie: 4 out of 4 stars

Disc: 4 out of 4 stars

Landing just a small notch below "the Wizard of Oz" as the most beloved fantasy film of all-time, the most lasting effect of "E.T." was not just to make sci-fi welcome for mass audiences but more to paint an alien as the premiere protagonist amidst an array of shortsighted and thuggish adult humans. This timeless masterpiece hasn't lost a lick of appeal with the new Blu-ray transfer is immaculately clear and crisp and the bevy of bonus featurettes provides a veritable treasure trove for fans new and old.
