Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
If we approach with sympathy and curiosity, we will be rewarded with same. And our souls, not to mention our bicycles, will soar to the heavens. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Watching E.T now, in an era dominated by cold, loud special-effects-laden extravaganzas, one is struck less by its lavish grandeur than by its intimacy and precision. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A sophisticatedly sappy masterpiece that bucked the prevailing Hollywood vision of aliens as nasty invaders and recast them as friendly collectibles for children. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Music for the eyes. That's why it has become a treasured classic. That's why we'll see it again and again. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Unchecked goodness has its price, after all, and childhood wonder wouldn't be nearly as sweet if it didn't fade. That may explain the film's appeal. It trapped that feeling, and its sense of possibility, in amber -- then, now, and for any time. Full Review
