    As a part of a master plan to do a talkback for every Steven Spielberg film for which one does not exist, I will be creating ones intermittently throughout the year. A box office triumph in its day, E.T. was for many years the highest grossing film of all time. Spielberg would beat his own record with Jurassic Park a decade later.

    THE DALEK/SPIELBERG TALKBACK SERIES:

    Duel
    The Sugarland Express
    Jaws
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    1941
    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    People LOVE this movie. I'm not one of them. I don't think I'll ever sit through it to try and figure out what I'm missing.

    I liked the movie. In fact, it's the first movie I have a very clear memory of seeing in a theater. I was just a little guy, but the movie was cool, especially the bike chase segments.

    Had an E.T. Big Wheel with E.T. in the front of it in a mock milk crate. Had the action figure. Was suckered into getting the crappy Atari game. Even found myself eating Reese's Pieces since. Taped it when it FINALLY came on television, totally intact and uncut. Still refuse to watch the special edition. Learned a lot about "special editions" after my Star Wars encounters.

    See, E.T. affected me more than Star Wars did. How strange is that?
    What does the X stand for? It's definitely not Extreme. Extreme starts with E.

    I am in the same boat - not because it's a bad movie, but because the E.T. character totally terrifies me, always has. There is SOMETHING about it...and to this day I can't figure it out. I can watch any film in the Alien franchise and not flinch at all - but flash an clip of ET, ugh!

    If I were ever outside on a foggy night and rolled a ball into a shed only to have it roll right back; I'd be back in the house with the door locked, shades down, and be sobbing in my closet before anyone else could even go to investigate.

    Don't even get me started on when he's all 'white' and dying....gah. ET is, and likely will forever be one of my great irrational fears.

    spielbergfilms.com has an interesting article about the deleted scenes:

    MICHAEL KEATON IS BIRDMAN
    OFFICIAL TEASER TRAILER
    OFFICIAL INTERNATIONAL TRAILER
    (R rated language)

    (supposedly no relation to the Hanna-Barbera Birdman. or maybe it's a DARK, SERIOUS & REALISTIC take on the Hanna-Barbera Birdman!)

    I was never a really big fan of E.T. for some reason, and this is one of the few spielburg films I didn't like. I wasn't afraid of the alien which is kind of strange because when I was younger I was afraid of everything. The music is great though I'll give it that.

    spielberg apologizes for the walkie talkies:
    http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/the-pr...142746809.html

    "For myself, I tried [changing a film] once and lived to regret it. Not because of fan outrage, but because I was disappointed in myself. I got overly sensitive to [some of the reaction] to E.T., and I thought if technology evolved, [I might go in and change some things]…it was OK for a while, but I realized what I had done was I had robbed people who loved E.T. of their memories of E.T. [...] If I put just one cut of E.T. on Blu-ray and it was the 1982, would anyone object to that? [The crowd yells "NO!" in unison.] OK, so be it."
    we got an apology from joel schumacher (http://youtu.be/r6epsGrcuTs) and now we got one from spielberg. now if we can get one from george lucas, i think everyone will be happy.

    ET may have been a generational thing. They rereleased the movie 20 years later and nobody came to see it. People just don't want the Spielberg Schmaltz anymore, which this film was the apex of.
