This film emphasises the fact that children have a wider imagination and are open to new ideas more than adults, the writers do this by having the adult characters (especially the mum) very scared of E.T. before they even find out anything about him or interact with him in any way. Whereas children, just like you and me, would be open to finding out everything there is to know about him. A lot of films with aliens in, portray them in a nasty, horrible and evil way but not E.T.. People have assumed that all aliens are horrible creatures otherwise they wouldn't be evil in movies but how do you know if that is a true assumption? Maybe there are aliens looking down on us if we're as evil as we are in they're films!
I kind of forgot about it before coming to write this review but the relationship between Elliot and his older brother grows throughout the film from his brother mocking Elliot when he says he's seen a alien to them becoming allies to save E.T.
I don't really know why I've given it four stars instead of five, it's just one of those films where if I get a choice I wouldn't choose to watch it but when I do I enjoy it quite a bit.
E.T. is a amazingly-crafted motion-picture that has been bringing families to tears for thirty-two years and will carry on to do so for many more.
