MIX UP REVIEWS:
Matthew (Age 14) - ★★★★
"A heart-warming and enjoyable story about a boy who discovers something otherworldly in his backyard, E.T. gives us a fascinating view of how first contact could play out. The
incredible design of the titular character, as well as the amazing mental bond between boy
and alien, truly make this movie one of the greats."
