E.T: The Extra Terrestrial August 31, 2006

There is something about this movie….it just makes me feel so happy whenever I happen to see it. This is the movie to watch if you want to see the Steven Spielberg-John Williams magic truly at work.

In all of Spielberg’s films, the score by Williams has been absolutely brilliant but E.T is the one where you truly get goosebumps. The best scene of the movie is when the kids riding their bikes while fleeing from the police get airborne and the theme plays in the background. BTW, this particular scene has been given a fitting tribute in Mani Ratnam’s Anjali in the “Magic Journey” song. The plot is something which everyone knows, thanks to pale imitations like Koi Mil Gaya. And the theme music was blatantly used as the background for ETV. The kids are cute…especially the little Drew Barrymore. I guess most of the people reading this would aleady have seen this movie….but if you haven’t then you shouldn’t miss it. Do check out the 20th anniversary edition which has better digitally enhanced effects.
