I’m sitting in the living room with David watching ET.
I was the same age as Drew Barrymore when ET first hit theaters in 1982.
Now this movie from my childhood is a classic?
David is fascinated with ET. He wants an ET of his own.
I was afraid the movie might scare him, but he’s fine with it.
ET is the first movie that’s not a cartoon that David has really shown any interest in. Of course he’s asking a thousand questions about why and what.
I have to admit ET holds up pretty good in the new millennium. When I watch other movies from the 80’s, like Star Wars, the special effects seem cheesy compared to what they can do today. But no so much with ET.
ET just died.
