Many people were guilty of not watching this classic four decades after its release. While many suggested it was dumb, another argued, “Don't listen to the people saying it's dumb. 

The scene where they go trick or treating with E.T., and they walk by a kid wearing a Yoda costume, and E.T. says, ‘Home!' and then starts following him is cinematic perfection.” Others suggested that the plot is nothing special, but if you have a couple of hours to waste and enjoy a bit of nostalgia and the hopefulness of childhood, watch E.T.
