Steven Spielberg first approached Rick Baker about doing the designs for E.T. while Baker was prepping for An American Werewolf In London (1981). Baker did a number of designs and tests before Spielberg became furious at Baker for requesting more time and more money after the initial story changed leading to a falling out between for some time. Spielberg next approached Chris Walas, who was booked to work with David Cronenberg on Scanners (1981). Spielberg then approached Rob Bottin, who was working with John Carpenter on The Thing (1982). Spielberg finally went to Carlo Rambaldi, whom Spielberg had worked with on Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977). Rambaldi quickly took the job. See more »
In addition to the other lunar errors, at first we see a
crescent moon then the famous full moon being crossed by the bicycles (later to become Amblin Entertainment's signature logo). From thin crescent to full moon takes about half a lunar cycle, 14 days, but the time frame of the movie suggested only a few days at most. See more »
Very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry
E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL, in my opinion, is a very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry. I really loved the magic that E.T. performed. If I could have, I would have helped him get to safety myself. The only problem is how I would get him to safety, since I can't drive. The score was good, the costumes were perfectly designed, everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. In conclusion, I highly recommend this very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages to anyone who hasn't seen it. You're in for a real treat and a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with someone close to you, and watch it. I guarantee you you'll thoroughly enjoy it.
