There are some movies that you always remember watching.
For me, E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial is just one of those movies. I was about 7 years old when I watched it, in Idaho no less. We were there visiting my grandparents and I went to the movies with my older sister and cousins. We went to one of those theaters that plays movies that have already been released. Come to think about it, this was actually my first time watching a movie in the theater!
I was in awe the entire time. I completely believed that I was born to be Drew Barrymore’s character Gertie. I remember pretending to be her for weeks after we watched the movie.
My kids are now old enough that I think they would enjoy the movie. As luck would have it, this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the film and it’s being released on DVD & BluRay Combo tomorrow, October 9th.
It’s been digitally remastered so you get the best experience to share with your family, after all this film didn’t win 4 Academy Awards for nothing!
To celebrate this iconic film we have been lucky enough to get a copy of the DVD & BluRay Combo to giveaway to a lucky reader. Not only that but you’ll also receive some super cook ET Bendy dolls for the kiddos.
Hurry and enter, this giveaway is headed home on FRIDAY OCTOBER 12th 9PM PST

Disclosure: The only compensation I received for this post is a copy of the movie. It by no means altered my opinion of the movie or altered my memories in any way.
