E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL on Blu-ray and DVD #ETPhoneHome

You laughed, you cried, you ate Reese's Pieces! Can you believe it's been thirty years? I hate to even admit I saw this movie in the theater.  I'm far too young to have be celebrating 30th anniversaries of anything! (Hey, a girl can pretend.)  You loved it then, and you'll still love it now.  I have to admit my kids weren't as into it as I was.  But I may have used more than a tissue or two to get through this 80s classic.  While some of the special effects will give this great film a slightly dated look, and of course no matter how adorable Drew Barrymore was you'll still be in taken back by the fabulous 80's clothing styles, this movie still holds many timeless memories and lessons. 

So pop some popcorn, grab a bag of Reese's Pieces and pop E.T. in the Blu-Ray player tonight.  Oh don't forget the Kleenex.
