This E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial 30th Anniversary Blu-ray packaging is amazing

I was flipping channels the other night and E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL was on. I have not seen the movie in well over five years and still found myself transfixed by the movie. The special effects hold up well today even compared to brand new films. It is truly a masterpiece.

Now, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original release, E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL is coming to Blu-ray. And don't worry, Spielberg has restored the guns in the FBI agents hands during the bike flight scene.

Plot: When an imaginative boy meets a lost alien, it is the beginning of one of cinema’s most endearing friendships, as Elliot (Henry Thomas) helps the marvelous creature he calls E.T. find his way back home before government agents can capture him.
