E.T. phone home! E.T. phone home!

If you ever get the chance to see E.T. in the theater, with a crowd full of kids who have never seen it before, I highly recommend it. I’ll admit that I got kinda choked up at the resurrection scene, and I think a large part of that wasn’t even the movie itself, but from being in the crowd and hearing the gasps, cheers, and claps of the kids (a few of whom we’d heard sniffling or outright sobbing in the preceding few minutes). A good audience can make a huge difference when watching a film, and today’s was definitely a good one.
