E.T still gives me the creeps... :)

@andydoug: LOL, I was always creeped out at the moment he and Elliott run into each in the corn field. ET's banjo-like panic scream is VERY creepy.

We just watched this (on DVD) last night with the kids - first time they'd ever seen it, and first I'd seen it in at least a decade. We were commenting that it might be fun to have this on Blu-Ray since the DVD was letterbox and I can't stand letterboxed stuff...

I don't know if anyone noticed, but the original on VHS didn't have the cute digital eyes they gave him to not give kids like me nightmares. That digital version was gimped. From changing the guns to flashlights in the first scene and some other crap that changed the whole movie. =( E.T. You will still be the scariest creature I have ever seen.
TO THIS DAY, when they find him sick in the forest I run and hug my dogs =(

@ionix: The Blu Ray is the original theatrical release, guns and all. Spielberg recanted and decided he made a mistake changing things on the DVD. Now if he could just talk some sense into Lucas...

@tsfisch: At least with E.T., Spielberg didn't try to bury the original version. I had the 2002 Collector's Edition and it included the original film remastered as well as the new version with CG ET and the other changes. It was interesting seeing the bathroom scene and all but it never seemed to fit into the film quite right.
