In case you’ve only heard the ‘ET phone home’ disconnected from the movie, you can now see how it was really used, as a lonely young boy, Elliott, happens upon and befriends an equally lonely and lost ‘extra terrestrial’. Their friendship leads to a number of adventures as the boy tries to help ET to, well, return home. With most of the camera work done from the eye level of a child, this gentle and charming film, which features excellent special effects, remains one of the all-time best box office draws for good reason.

We also got to see a special treat ‘A Trip to the Moon‘ rare restored color plate version. It was awesome and my daughter exclaimed, “It’s like a video game!” What can you say about ET? I still tear up at the emotional parts. I’ve always loved this movie. Now my daughter knows what “ET, phone home.” means.
