I'd like to say I still felt the magic and I still believed. But that would be a lie.
I hadnít revisited the film in a long time and I was very afraid it wouldnít hold up for me today, but I donít think any movie has held up better than this one did.
Sure enough the tone through the first two thirds of E.T. was just as I remembered. Nobody does Americana like Speilberg. His families are perfect, in that they are not perfect, which makes them perfect. It is not just that however.
