OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We started to not collect opinions since everyone's already seen E.T., but we thought it would be fun to see how well it's held up over the last 20 years. As you can see, these are some very high opinions with virtually no low opinions. So, I believe E.T. can officially be considered a "Classic." Do yourself a favor and SEE IT AGAIN ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
You don't really need my opinions on this classic since nearly everyone has already seen it. I do highly recommend that you not miss this rare chance to see it again on the big screen with all the digital enhancements and the additional footage.
