E.T.'s spaceship was designed by conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie (who also designed the mothership for Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"). Described in the screenplay as looking like something from a Dr. Seuss story, McQuarrie gave the ship a distinctly Victorian, Jules Verne-like appearance. See more »

Today when I was at my house alone, looking through my DVDs, trying to figure out which movie I should see for entertainment. I saw E.T and I hadn't seen it for nearly 3-4 years ago. I seen the film ever since I was 4 years old, so I wondering if I would still enjoy it when I'm an adult. As I was watching the film, I had this rush of nostalgia running through me, I was remembering the times when I was a kid with my family. The film didn't at all feel to childish to me, I was actually having a lot of fun, like I used to when I was a kid. This film has not aged at all since 30 years ago. This film is a truly timeless film, and will always be remembered. This is one of the best Steven Spielberg films. (And that is no easy task) A Timeless Classic 10/10
