E. T. the Extra-Terrestrial 1982

A while back I took a "quiz" on Facebook to determine how many of the top 250 movies of all time. I had actually seen. I scored 100 out of the 250 movies that were listed. If I was unsure about seeing a movie I didn't check it off so my score could possibly be much higher.

And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.

So here is #13 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:

20 Things You Never Knew About E.T. The Extra-terrestrial Movie 17


Who doesn't love E.T.?  Action, adventure, aliens, bad guys, government agents, heroes, and friendship.  It has everything.

E.T. is an alien who was left behind when his ship had to leave Earth quickly because a government task force was nearby.  He is befriended by Elliot who helps him try to get home.

I still loves this movie today.
