Last weekend the four of us curled up on the couch together and watched E.T.
E.T. was the first film I saw at the cinema, way back age 5, I remember the darkness, after watching it I became obsessed with E.T.
I had E.T. activity books and an E.T. softie that is still kicking around somewhere (isn't it Mum, please tell me it is!), E.T. figurines. I was an E.T. junkie.
I don't think I've watched E.T. since seeing it on the big screen - and I loved watching this with my smalls. Though the beginning IS scary - it is such a cool movie that in my book, was ahead of its time.
The Doctor loved it, and though it is too old for Tiny, once we got through the scary bit she was transfixed and is now asking for E.T.
The iconic imagery, a young Drew Barrymore, E.T.'s glowing heart, his glowing finger, the flowerpot. Such happy memories.
